Ha, ha, ha. Last week such a low score for you and this week, you're right up there in the top 10! How the worm has turned. LOL. Anyway, well done (and a fine image to boot)!

The title coula have been: "I'm Captain of the South Ship"

I love how this ship appears to come out of the mist. Very nice composition. However, that little bit of light at the tip of the ship's reflection - I wish it wasn't there. 8

Very cool shot, the fog really "sells" this one. 9 Swash

nice ghost ship image.

Incredibly evocative. Strangers in the night and all that. Two ships that pass. I know there's only one but I am imagining myself on the other one.

This is a dramatic and powerful image. The sun and the haze really make this picture stand out. 8 sjgleah

BAD ASS...score 9

Absolutely wonderful! I love the fog, and how the ship dissapears into it. The lighting conditions are perfect for the shot, and the reflection is clear and very obvious. This definately portrays a mood. Great shot. One of my 10's this week. Good luck in the challenge. ~Hbunch7187~

Wow. You have really captured a great shot here. I hope you at least place in the top ten if not the top three. Very good shot.

Nice job and very ghostly. What a calm lake. I look it a lot. DPz

Very nicely done.

Absolutely beautiful image. I really like the front end of this boats reflection. The mist is fantastic (well captured). The only small quiry I have is the sun in the upper left is a little overpowering, but that's life and we as people can't tell the sun where to go. But that's IMO. When I first saw this picture I immediately thought of the 'Titanic'. I admire your effort in capturing this beauty. Good luck with this weeks challenge :) 9

beautiful! a gorgeous scene and a lovely effect.
09/30/2002 07:54:00 PM
Meets challenge. Nice misty, moody feel. I don't understand what happened to the rest of the ship. Please excuse my ignorance.... I'm sure there's a perfectly good explanation.
09/30/2002 07:30:00 PM
This is a fantastic shot! The fog/haze really sets a mood for the shot. You know it will be ok soon though, because the sun will burn it all off :) Youv'e definitely met the challenge with this shot, and subject matter is very appealing to me. - 8 - JB
