“Ships” is the name of this photograph. This was taken from a section of the Cape Spear Walking Trail. With this particular shot, camera was placed towards the sun and as a result the picture seemed darker. Because Cape Spear is the most easterly point in North America, a lot of ships pass this point of land.
In the late spring, many whales can be seen feeding on capelin.
In this particular shot, the horizon had to be adjusted, leveled, framed, and saved for the web. There was no need for further photo editing. The color of the clouds was used in the frame by applying the eye dropper tool.

Hi Jim, Great shot. At first glance I thought it was black and white, but there is just enough colour in the sky to soften it up. Your split for the horizon and positioning of the larger ship are textbook perfect. Your selection of frame colour based on the clouds was a good idea and works.
