Cutty Sark IV

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Cutty Sark IV
Cutty Sark IV
The Cutty Sark is a museum ship in Greenwich London, displayed on a beautiful glass structures and available to teach and educate the public of the tea trade during the age of sale.
Cutty Sark was one of the fastest clippers, built in 1869, right before the introduction of steam propulsion.
The opening of the Suez Canal shortened the route to China, where she was used to import tea to England.
She then turned to the import of wool from Australia.
The ship's figurehead shows Cutty-sark, the nickname of the witch Nannie Dee who chases Tam O'Shanter, snatching his horse's tail before he escapes by crossing water.

Oh, my gosh. You know how much I loved your previous Cutty Sark captures and not taking away one excellent pixel from them but this one is absolutely stunning...I didn't think it could be possible but you've topped yourself! I agree wholeheartedly with Michelle - this one is going places! Excellent, excellent everything. :):)

Thank you all for the nice words. The Cutty Sark is an amazing vessel. She shines on her own. I am so glad I agreed to tag along with my husband who nerdly hangs out with historians and other people who run museum ships. Of course, I was sent out to roam around on my own when he was attending meetings. Luckily, I had the camera.

Stunning Rony we will see this again I am sure. Your composition, POV, all the lines, angles and even a touch of sky. Nothing could improve this. Best EOD I have ever seen. Congratulations way ahead of time on this one Rony. Blow it up, frame it and cherish the awards it is going to win. Enter this into some National contests as well.

Another super spectacular capture of this magnificent vessel, Rony! Fabulous POV - it really emphasizes all the angles and lines as well as the gorgeous vivid golds and blues. As always the detail and clarity are excellent. This deserves all the accolades it is going to receive. On to more gold!
