Last look at the Telamon, with a few in monochrome. I’d taken my ND filters to try some long exposures, as the weather forecast was for cloud. However it was a trifle windy and by the time I got there, the clouds had cleared but the wind hadn’t dropped, which didn’t make for ideal conditions for the long exposures I had in mind.
To get some ideas of what was there, I did some research on Flickr and Instagram before travelling. This gave me a few ideas for compositions (such as the one below), while with the others, I used the long end of my 18-55 lens to compress perspective and also get in close.
I deliberately chopped the stern off the first image to emphasise the wedge shape of the ships remains, and the second image works equally well in colour or monochrome. That’s the beauty of monochrome, the entire nature of the image changes, as the colour is removed the emphasis becomes more one textures, lines, shapes and tones.
