This is very well done Brett. Looks like you were there for the shot.
Sorry to hear about your camera. You must be in withdrawal. Guess you'll just have to do double sets on the guitar.

Exceptional digital darkroom work here, Brett...and a perfect title for this very creative and emotive image, too!! I guess back in 1770 Diamond Head didn't look TOO dissimilar to what it looks today, too!! :o)

Thanks everyone Ive had a lot of enjoyment revisiting my images of the Endeavour Replica.
This Endeavour Replica was added and was taken on the first day when the ship was sitting off the Bar at Port Macquarie waiting for the right tide to enter.
