Sailor for Sail or rent, booms to let 50c....

By NDODS    
Thank you for all your most gracious and honest comments following yesterdays upload.

Although I said that I wasn't going to upload or view until Saturday. I have found that I have got some patches of free time whilst in-between sessions. so with the help of my friend MacBook I am able to communicate with the outside world at my leisure.

Todays upload was captured whilst visiting St Mary's Island, and was taken just after I captured the shot of the slipway which was uploaded on Monday.

I hope that you all have a great day, and I shall endeavour to catch up as I go through the day. However if I don't, please do not be offended, as I will be sleeping.

Regards to you all

Morning Nathan. The weather and sky definately adds to the image. Don't think it would have quite the same impact on a bright, sunny day. Nice one GrinGrin

Great image of this fine sculpture, Nathan. I like the composition with strong line from lower left to upper right and a marvellous sky, the whole image very well processed with a great mono conversion, contrast just right.
