Thank you, Mike. I used the radial gradient in LR to lighten the tug against the background of the container ship. I was dissatisfied with a color photo of the tug passing the container ship (not the same photo) that I posted in the CS/Free theme thread because I couldn't adequately disengage the tug from the background.Perfect composition and conversion to monochrome. Also a perfect choice for monochrome. I love that the interesting areas of the sky are in exactly the right places so they don't interfere with the strong lines in the image.
Thank you, Karen! Here in the DC area, there's little opportunity to photograph real ships and docks, so whenever I have occasion to go to Baltimore, I take advantage of a genuine working port. Good vantage points are along the seawall around Fort McHenry.A very enjoyable image, Bill! I find the dock and boat subjects very interesting. And excellent processing, also.
