T - these sailing ships have tons of "things" on them, with lots of structure, texture, and shapes. They had access to the ship closed off, otherwise I would have gone on board and shot a lot.

I take it back, sort of...there is a lot more real detail in this version...Hummm...still trying to

I don't know, Jim...this is what makes it art I suppose...I prefer 20180825_Yorktown_3_CIC.jpg...crop the top bottom and sides a little to tighten the shot up...but that would be my favorite.

But this is what makes horse races. Best Wishes, Traveller

T - see 2 shots in pending. Too much clutter for a decent full ship shot.

I believe it is a sun shield.

I'll stick the whole ship in pending.

No, a sun shield I would venture....I just kind of wish Jim had tried to include the entire ship from this position....I recently shot the Iowa...see in Pending...I know Jim wanted the subject to be the Stars and Stripes...but I miss the whole ship.

Fascinating angle, I know very little about ships and sail boats, even tho I had a small one once, I wonder that upper canvas deck is for that looks like a trampoline? Paul
