Taken on the deck of HMS Warrior - what a ship, could of spent all day on there Smile

Warrior, launched in 1860, was the pride of Queen Victoria’s fleet. Powered by steam and sail, she was the largest, fastest and most powerful ship of her day and had a profound effect on naval architecture. Warrior was, in her time, the ultimate deterrent. Yet within a few years she was obsolete.

Warrior’s survival was possible because of the extraordinary durability of her construction and the vision of Sir John Smith and those others who determined to save this great ship, one of the most influential warships ever built and the sole surviving 19th century capital ship in the world.

Thanks as always for your time, your thoughts/comments are very welcome.
Regards - Sarah J x

Now what I like about this shot is the vibrancy and repaeting pattern. There's almost a touch of orton about it too which gives that mystical look.
I grew up in Pembs and Warrior was used as an oil platform at Burton. That became abandoned and I used to play on this ship before it was taken to Hartlepool for renovation. It is so nice to see it as it was designed as opposed to rotting away in the 70's in Pembs.

Superb, you've made a strong, satisfying composition out of a bigger scene. I love those reflections - many hours of loving care have gone into polishing that brass.

This is a grand capture. Lovely light and reflections on that brass. I see this every time I go to Old Portsmouth (being a Pompey dweller!) The magnificence of the ship never fails to inspire! Well done on this wonderful image.
