HMS Illustrious in Liverpool

HMS Illustrious is in town. She’s the sister ship of HMS Ark Royal. Instead of helicopters she gets Harrier jump jets. Very cool. This isn’t a HDR image. I took one just in case but this works well enough. Its actually a 242 second exposure. I’ve been playing with crazy exposure times the past few days. Its funny really. I was talking to a mate about the lighting and I commented how I wouldn’t get a nice photo because the ship is barely lit. Its no cruise ship. I was quite surprised when I saw something this clear appear on my display.
