Its quite hard to get a ship to really “pop” out from the landscape here, at least thats how I felt. I didn’t want to use colour because the sky was grey and in colour grey is boring and dull. In black and white I felt the ship didn’t really jumped out from the buildings behind. But I decided that the shot needed showing, that colour wasn’t an option and that if I switch off my brain the shot works. I really hate that they’ve closed the bridge at Canning Dock. I could have stood on that and got all the reflection in without the foreground you see in this one. Very annoying. Oh well, best of a bad situation I think.
