During the Canada Day Weekend of 2013 my hometown had a series of TALL SHIPS coming into Hamilton Harbour for the War of 1812 Bicentennial Commemorations and over the next few days I will be giving description of the ship along with the post processing techniques and as well taking a break from my bird photography.
About the ship Registry: Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
With the Length overall: 85 feet, Length on deck: 65 feet, Beam: 21 feet, Draught: 6.5 feet center board up, 10 feet center board down
Displacement: 53 tons and Ballast: 25,000 lbs. The Rig: Two masted, Gaff rigged, Square Top Sail schooner with the Sail Area: 2500 square feet. Features a crew: 3 to 5 and passengers are up to 70.

The post processing opened in Camera-in-the-RAW and corrected the colour balance, and from their opened in the full Adobe Photoshop Elements 7, and resized to 600 x ? px and applied the UNSHARP MASK till it looked sharp and then saved as JPEG image for upload to this GALLERY.
Lastly prior to my last upload from this series I hope to have completed an Audio Visual Programme on them using Picture to EXE.
