Yeah, the light was kinda harsh (close to noon) so B&W was far more interesting. It really brought out all the little details and textures.

Thank you too, Dave.
Yes, interesting indeed. I would love to do a multiple day shoot on a shipyard but usually they don`t allow shooting at all. However this yard isn`t very difficult, mabye it`s worth to try to and get an assignment?

Great shot, it's all too easy to lose sight of just how big these things are and your saying this a just a coaster.

I'm glad there are people in the shot as it really gives a sense of scale.

Thanks, Kerrowdown.
Yes, this is "only" 87x11meters. The biggest one I`ve worked on was MSC Beatrice. That`s a really big mamma, you need a bike to get around

Why you wanna do that for? They give scale and countermass to the vessel and besides that, they are part of the dockingproces (the front guy operates the remotecontrol)

Well the scale is still there with other objects - and I agree they are part of the story if it's about the ship - but for a folder I probably would at least try to see how it would looks like . Trying never hurts

Maybe, but they want the picture as it is. Fine by me, less hassle for me
