179. There Is Nothing Like A Dame

The big boat is the cruiser HMS Belfast which has been docked in London as a tourist attraction scince 1971.

The yacht "Scarlet Oyster" moored up next to it belongs to Dame Ellen MacArther, the World's fastest solo circumnavigator. She had sailed into town today on a charity mission.

I've posted an item on the critiques forum about the fourth picture in this set. If anyone has any advice I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks

Jon

dontblink Such a contrast to have a sailboat tied up alongside a warship.

smbunation I really like the city view in the backgrounds of these. Great shots, Jon.

lookagain Very cool to see such scenes - never have that opportunity where I live!
Really love the second one with the bridge and city buildings in the background. Also, when enlarged there's so much interesting detail.

jet28 Full of interest! I'd crop the last one at the top - just skimming the tops of the buildings and at the bottom - at the bottom of the lamp post base, above the red thing.

revenant I'm sure this is one grand old dame a lot of men were very relieved not to go down on.
(I'm going to get thrown out of here, aren't I?)

LAZYWASP My favourite is #1....lovely subject and a great sense of scale.
Dame Ellen is one brave cookie!

????? I really like #4. The boat is huge and gray and blends in with the city...the people stand out and the lamp posts. I favorited it.
