    I have to agree with the comments above. Very nice shot.
     
  4. Thanks for the view and comments, agree, the boat is it
    large.
    i'm a bit perplexed at the vertical lines/traces on right and left upper corners, wondering if these are artifacts of development/agitation? or film movement in the magazine

    I really like this Rodney. It has an underlying tension that reminds me of some of Joseph Turner's more disturbing paintings.

    Hannibal crossing the Alps and Slave Ship come to mind. It's the highlighted ground/water with ominous clouds overhead.


    (Of course he's on my mind because I saw a pbs show on him recently.)
     
  8. ok sure, had to find him, english romantics, oh my.
    found another painting: Peace-burial at sea

    I don't care for his earlier pastoral work. I especially appreciate his later work. After the Slave Ship fiasco (the public hated being reminded of their savagery), he invented impressionism, like the Burial at Sea painting you mentioned. I see myself mimicking his style of motion blur and grain (er, brush stroking) often.

    On reflection, much of my photography is influenced by painters.
