Great, musket. No one beats you at (in) clarity and colour accuracy

Torgny

The aqua (pt 1)
The green (pt 2)
The blue (pt 3)
The red (pt 4)

hidden colour levels are great

The scene would not be complete

without including 'Samson & Goliath' The two largest dry dock shipyard cranes

in the world, they dominate the skyline

Harland and Wolff was formed in 1861 by Edward James Harland and Gustav Wilhelm Wolff. Ironically, Harland never got to see the most famous ship ever to be built in his shipyard - The Titanic. Dominating the shipyard, and in fact the Belfast skyline, are the famous twin cranes Samson and Goliath. Goliath was built in 1969 and stands 96m tall; Samson was built in 1974 and stands 106m tall. Each crane spans 140m and can lift 840 tonnes. The dry dock at the foot of the cranes remains the largest in the world. Whilst much of the land around the cranes is now being redeveloped, the cranes will remain as a monument to Belfast's ship-building past.

I second Torgny's observation; great clarity and color. Great composition, too.

Thanks for commenting and for the suggestions...I wasn't on a construction site,

safety regulations, fencing and security guards, prevent the public from getting too

close shots were taken through the fencing:-)




Thereis a video on youtube which shows scenes from the top of one of the cranes:-)

Thanks again for commenting.

Browsing the webI find there are lots of photo's of the shipyard.

a few of which are pooled here.

http://flickr.com/groups/harlandandwolff/pool/

as for Youtube there are probably a lot of interesting videos

still waiting to be discovered.....................:|...........musket
