... I don't think I'd know what to do with the star to steer her by!

This is Charlestown in Cornwall. It's a pretty little port, created in Georgian times and is largely undeveloped. It's privately owned and is the home to a couple of old sailing ships which are used on film projects, as indeed is the port having been used in Tim Burton's strange 'Alice in Wonderland', a fairly recent 'Dr Who' episode with Matt Smith and also Poldark and Hornblower episodes.

It's a good place to wander around and taking care to avoid modern cars and paraphernalia can provide a timeless shot which begs for sepia if you want to be predictable (see V2)!

Thanks for your attention.

Works so well in mono but V1 and the colour gets the click.

A well chosen viewpoint David.Cannot be easy to get these main subjects in and leave the rubbish out but If I was aware of it I may have cloned out the car half way up on the left hand side.

When I first saw this, I thought how much like a Frank Meadow Sutcliffe style image this was...then I saw V2! Wink A fine capture, David, like both versions, and think V2 wins it for me Smile

Like them both equally David! These tall ships have so much character, would love to have seen them in their real time with all the hustle & bustle of a busy port Smile
