I wish I was a Glow Worm, a Glow Worm's never glum, 'cause how can you be grumpy, when the sun shines out your bum?

This really turned out good! I agree with R. about the comparison. I think it's perfect for the challenge. tigs=^..^=

Nature in all her glory is my uplift on life and so is my love of photography. sandi ♪ ♫

Nice b/w image showing the black hull of the old sailing vessel and the white hull of the super modern yacht of eome Billionaire. Good contrast for sure Cornelius.

It is a good contrast, Mr. C. Since you have such ready access to docks, is there a possibility of placing your camera in such a position to capture the yacht (or some yacht) in the lower foreground? With one of these masted museums behind the yacht? If the camera angle is low enough you could get a capture that makes it appear as though a modern yacht was using masts and sails for its propulsion... just a thought.

Happy New Year!

If you've ever wanted to make a difference but found it hard to believe that one person could... check out the Kiva Team Caedes discussion thread and discover that anything is possible.

The contrast between old and modern is good good. Methinks the tallship is from Russia? Great shot Mr.C

Els (twinkel) is right in her above comment. It's the Russian frigate 'Shtandart' during a port call in Flushing, Zeeland, The Netherlands. The yacht at the background is a brand new one and not commissioned yet. Therefore it's still at the shipyard at the background. In contradiction to what 'Nik' (Nikoneer) supposed in his above comment, I hadn't access to this shipyard, so my composition was the best achievable result!

Excellent capture Cornelius. Both vessels have their own charm with their design at opposite ends of the spectrum. To look at, the old is beautiful but for comfort I believe the modern would win !
Added to the slowly growing list for the BWC restart next week - thank you !

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB
