The Pickle's launch at Gloucester Docks last May as part of the Trafalgar celebrations. The tall ship sailed all around the UK's coast stopping off in numerous ports en route before ending up at Plymouth.

Good shot... Would she have been part of the Tall Ships race do you know? If she was, I may have caught her, and if not, then shame, I missed her!

Good capture, IMHO the contrast wants a tweak to make the blacks darker and give the whole thing more impact.

I would like to see this shot in Sepia.
Good as it stands but I feel my suggestion may enhance the shot further.

This has the feel of a period image that could easily be from the ships own era. Not easily achieved with technology and modernity on show almost everywhere you look.

All the best

This an excellent b&w conversion that is well captured. Echos of a bygone era eh?

The old car was very sharp even in black and white, Edmund, but I feel, like others, this needs some sharpening. But perhaps you wanted the image to look this way.

Great record shop. Personally I prefer more contrast, but we can't all be pleased all the time.
Great shot, brings back memories of Gloucester.
