A nice view of Sagres II with an interesting note on the origin of the Red cross on the sails (you should change "candle" into "sail" : a candle is lighted to provide some light...).
Nice view of the ship with the sails on, good colors but I regret the slight tilt on th right and the high background which is not to good for th contrast.
All the best,

Cumpri o serviço militar na marinha e tive ,felizmente, o privilégio de passar algum tempo neste magnifico navio.
Esta tua foto fez-me recordar esses tempos ,que por vezes foram também duros, mas era a vida de marinheiro.

A "Sagres" no seu esplendor, apesar de a luz não ter sido favorável.
