Default Steam Tug from Yesteryear...

This old tug is part of the Steam Museum in Ramsgate Harbour near where i live. Cervia has been lovingly restored and her all metal construction completely refurbished to her original colours.

ive been lucky enough to go on board in the past and she really is a remarkable old boat.

regards,
John

A striking image- even if a bit too much for my usual "natural" palate...!

thank you Simon and Walter for taking a look and leaving something kind i realised i had overcooked it slightly but it IS an all metal hull and cabin so was hard to get the look right without baking it for a few more minutes

wouldnt normally share an overcook but liked this as a picture rather than as a photo. and it really is a beautiful old tug.

many thanks
john

Indeed.. a lovely old tug. I'd like to see the original "middle exposure"...

Wow, what a fantastic HDR, the texture of the metal is very noticeable.

Regards.

as you can see, there really is a lot of metallic shine around the upper rim of the hull and around the cab area, so i didnt really overcook it as much as it looked. only thing im a wee bit guilty of was making the sky moody and keeping the extra seagul
