This is the bow of chemical tanker "Marcela Lady", immediately before leaving the floating dock of "Viktor Lenac" repair shipyard, where it received such flaming final coats of paint...
The picture is of original size (no cropping), but the background on the right side was blurred in order not to "jump out" too much. The colors were marginally additionally saturated.

Very nice monochromic view,
Ilike the composition,The impressional size of the boat,

Nice picture... Good choice to put yourself on the picture. If the scale is right, than you are about 1m60 tall ;-)

Great picture, I love this idea and your composition... It's excellent.

Very well captured - at first I did not know what I was looking at.
I think cropping the background away would have a bigger abstract impact - then it would be more difficult to guess what is seen.

great photo! wonderful use of reds as such a dominant colour. i admit that i had to look at the shot for a moment before i worked out what i was looking at. so it has an almost abstract quality. good to see you put your shadow in the shot. great inclusion of the white numbers which contrast the red so well.
well spotted. keep shooting!

nicely captured & composed. the shadows effectiveky seem to measure to look at the scale. Loely graphical shot.

great perspective, i ,love it!
misterB (2250) 2006-01-17 13:15
A great picture. The inclusion of the silhoutte of yourself taking the photo, and the small area of background to the right really enforce the size of the ship. Wonderful vivid colours.

Great picture! The shadow added the magic touch.

aahh...ovo je jako lijepo. boje si dobro pogodio, a ova tvoja sjenka (pretpostavljam da je tvoja) odlicno daje dinamici slike. naravno mene osobno kao brodara ova slika jako veseli, jer nema nista ljepse nego kad vidis jedan detalj broda u ovako lijepom uratku.
Dobra ideja sa bluranjem pozadine. Moram i ja to probati na nekim od svojih uradaka. Lijepi pozdravi iz hladne (-16) Finske, Alan

Zdravo vlad, to je prava fotka. Tu se vodi kako smo mali i beznačajni ,Ta ideja sa sjenom je izvrsna.

I really like composition of this image. Very clever use of shadows. It works great against red color of the ship.

Well composed. Just amazing how big those boats can get. Like the use of the shaddow.

Hi Vlad, I love this shot. So unusual, with overwhelming hues of red, the graceful curve of the depth gauge, and the very sharp shadow. A memorable image - congratulations in recognizing the possibilities inherent in this scene! Regards,
rewshearer (682) 2006-08-08 16:36
Wow - excellent shot! Amazing, the size of the ship's bow, your shadow against it really puts it into perspective.
Colours and comp are brilliant.

This is splendid!

timleahy (2195) 2006-08-19 16:32
Interesting shot, very creative in the wya you included yourself in the shot. Usually we try to exclude our shadows, but this one adds interest to the image.
Zaqattaq (133) 2006-08-27 20:43
Very unique POV, I really like the style
shutterbill (4) 2006-08-28 6:33
I have been meaning to comment on the photo all day. Very original, the colour/ saturation is very nice. The specular highlights are also nicely controlled in this shot, very much deserves the praise it has been receiving.
BTW, keep your camera bag a bit closer won't you.
rossofuoco (7385) 2006-08-30 6:05
Bello scatto,ottimo il tema.
Sei stato bravo a concepire e a capite lo scatto immaginando cosa sarebbe stato.

This one is one of the best photos I've seen. Grat scene, red color is awsome. Composition, light - perfect. Great idea!!!
AleGaro (269) 2007-04-10 3:48
That's a WONDERFUL photo! I really love it!
Your shadow on the hull is a perfect particular.
rajhema (1871) 2007-05-17 6:29
Never imagined what it is when I saw the thumpnail. I think adding your shadow makes this picture better. Good capture Vlad.
