    Hey, Jim.

    You have "critique my photos anywhere in the forum" so I'm going to jump in with some comments on this one. I hope you don't mind.

    This image shows a small window on the scene that was before you. I'm guessing that the CSL Niagra and the BBC Jade are actually moving through? I see a bit of a bow wave on the Jade as I look closely. And your take on the photo, based on your comment is that the fisherman in the boat don't care... they're just going to fish. That's a fairly complex story to tell though a photograph and while I think it was a good try I also think you missed it by just a bit. The photo doesn't stand on it's own. Without your comment I wouldn't have gotten it. The fishermen are very small in the scene. Those large red ships really command attention and I almost didn't realize they were there. Since the fishermen are the main subject I think that's a bit of a problem.

    I like how you are showing the tail end of one boat and the front of the other following so closely. It looks weird to see a boat "split" like that and I find it interesting. I find the whole scene interesting since I rarely see large ships that close together.

    I hope this helps.

Thank you for comments I agree the shot only works with a caption - and it helps if one was a boater.My cruiser was at least twice the length of the bass boat, and given the vortex each ship prop would churn up, I would have got out of there. That's what intrigued me. By the way the ships are nose to nose. The shot shows the bow of the CSL Niagara. Have a peek at the attached shot of the Niagara under the Johnstown bridge - basically it's 740 foot by 78 foot steen rectangle. Compared to sea going ships with their bulbous nose jobs, lakers show less bow wave.

    I really like that last one that makes the ships look like they pass very close together. The big scrape down the side of the Wico punctuates that thought. For the first one, it might have been more telling to get their boat caught up in one of the churns.
