Anchor and Warrior

By IainHamer
This is a shot taken in HMNB Portsmouth. The anchor looks like it has been in the sea for quite some time. The anchor appears to be the same design as those used for Junior Ranks in The Royal Navy to signify rank - one anchor is Leading Seaman crossed Anchors is Petty Officer. I shot this in Nikon RAW converted to JPG in Photoshop and then tonemapped it in Photomatix Essentials finally adding tone and frame in PS.

I like this ,but would of attempted to lose the tower from the shot. Its a little to modern for the rest of the composition.

I have already removed a van that was parked on the right of the frame but the Spinnaker Tower is a Pompey landmark and would look wrong if it wasn't there I think. Thanks for all your Cl&C's special thanks to Cimic for his much valued User Award
