Default USS Edson in her final resting port

Finally got out and took a few pics of a new floating Naval Museum in our town. The ship needs more work before it will be open to the public but it's getting there. I'm not real happy with the images, sun was in front of me and I am a loooooooooooonnnngggg way from having the editing skills most of you guys have. But I was just anxious to see what the 14-54mm was capable of.

At least this ship has a relative place of honor, unlike the ignominious fate that my first ship got.

Yes, not too honorable for sure. Donations helped bring the decommissioned ship from the naval yard in Philly to it's final resting place in Bay City, MI. Work on the ship is all done by volunteers, many or most of them former Navy men.

You did good James. You captured excellent detail on the sides of the ship which were in the heavy shadows without washing out the top which was in heavy sunlight. #2 was an especially good exposure which blended the sunlight and shadow areas well. Excellent results there James!!

Thanks Steve, I did do some gradation in the editing or they would have looked a little washed out. The sun was in a bad position.

Hi James

Those pics look good .. I was going to say the same as Steve.. the exposure looks spot on and theres plenty of detail as well. It looks a interesting project to snap on a regular basis and its a pretty fine looking ship, so I'd love to see what it will look like when its full refitted and open to the public.

Cheers

Harj

Thanks Harj. Once they open it to the public, you can board for a 10.00 donation (a good cause) and I will take plenty of pics. Hopefull by summer it will be open to the public.

I agree with Steven about the great control of exposure.

I agree with the other comments - the exposures are good esp for a difficult lighting situation. What time of day was this?
