Hi Flus, Many thanks for the L&V, and for your comments.(I see what you mean) I really appreciate it. Slán, Pat.

Hello Pat - After you left your grand comment in my gallery, I had to check out what you had on offer in your gallery... I found your comment suggested a bod with an eye similar to my own and now that I have seen this wonderful photograph, my expectations have been surpassed :-)

Super composition.... and the monochrome sky is a masterly touch... particularly the wee bit visible through the hole in the hull...

Sad though it is to see an old ship such as this so derelict, I feel that images such as these keep them alive...

I will find this in the competition.... It certainly has my vote :-)

Just having a quick peek at your photos - I love the dead ship - I've taken a few along these lines too, but nothing this large so L&YS! Cheers, William

Hello Pat, I'm Amazed that this splendid part of history is not accepted by GE.

I read somewhere that you can make an appeal.

Search Google.

What to do if a photo hasn't been selected after a second review.

I found this....

Hi Ray

Glad you like the image though.
