The Ship Began To Slowly Rock Side To Side.
Was It A Storm Or Was It Something Else?
Something Supernatural?

What a nice way to arrive this morning to your wonderful comments on these. :) I liked all three images and couldn't decide which to enter and while I made them a story unfolded for me.

I love adventure stories. It would be fun to try and write one.

So pleased that you all liked them!!

Have a great day and Thank you again!

Pom, you've kicked those creative juices into high gear on this one (project, made up of three equally fine images).
I love the mystery of the first, and the lovely combination of colors in the second. As for the "actual", original photo, it's a wonderful silhouette capture. (Where the heck were you when you shot this?)
Finally, your story-telling skills shine here. Pom, you can be particularly proud tonight with the result of your efforts, both with words and digital art. Hat's off to you, Kiddo!

Mumj, I meant to answer you :). I will be putting this on canvas soon. It's in my next top 5. :) I just cant decide how large to make it yet. :))) I have an "Oceanic Room" in my home and I think it might look great in there. :)

Thank you again everyone. :)
