Let me think....

Perfect weather to camouflage a war vessel.

Nice ankle of shooting. It looks positioned o.k.

I can't say if you chose the camera settings. You may had, just some.

Conclusion/Suggestion: I could probably use the 1/5th of the bottom pf the pic, which shows the sea, to add it to the top so it shows the sky and shows the vessel and its relation with the sky, (a fighter or a helicopter landing or taking off would make it more engaging). Getting closer and shooting from below would be interesting also, but deadly dangerous.

Its quite a decent shot Robert I like the pov this is taken from. My late Uncle served as a gunner on this ship during the Korean War.

A few suggestions. The shot is not level and needs a clockwise rotation. Its a little flat, typical of a small compact, and with a little work on contrast it gives the shot some life.

A little sharpening completes the tweaks, and all this is included in the mod.

if you are familiar with Levels in Photoshop. and you look at levels , you can drag both end sliders inwards to meet the graph which gives it a boost.

Since youre new to EPZ There are features in this gallery you may want to use: Theres a "Like" icon beside a comment; and theres the small "Nominate for Constructive Critique" link at the bottom of every comment. The Critique Team approves or denies submissions for constructive Critiques, and members can accrue points. Critique Team members cannot approve comments on their own feedback. When you provide constructive feedback, you can also start collecting points, which can mean you are improving to the point where you can see how to improve other members shots. To qualify as Constructive, the feedback has to improve you image, your skill, your knowledge of the photographic process, or post processing. Comments like nice shot, love the scenery, etc dont qualify.

Hope this is helpful,

Not the Belfast - the Belfast is moored near the tower in London and is a cruiser with 12 six inch guns. A decent image but the weather conditions do not help and there is a little under exposure. Brighten things up a bit for a big improvement. The river bank makes it look like there is a slope, but looking at the ship, I think all is OK in that department.

Great shot, but this is not the Belfast. I think it's one of the laid up carriers. Most likely the Ark Royal, one of the three anyway. It has the ski slope so it has to be one of them
