The Maryland Dove
"On the Twenty Second of the month of November, in the year 1633, being St. Cecilia's Day, we set sail from Cowes, in the Isle of Wight, with a gentle east wind blowing." - Father Andrew White, Society of Jesus and a colonist
British colonists, sailing on The Ark and The Dove, made a 4 month voyage to the new world. They would eventually establish Maryland's first townsite on the banks of the St. Mary's river. This ship is a recreation of a 17th century trading vessel very like the Dove. The original was lost at sea in 1635 carrying trade goods (tobacco) back to England.
Taken a couple of days ago and couldn't position myself to where I could get a shot of the ship without it being severly backlit by the bright sun. So I played around with contrast and shadow adjustments which washed out the colors way too much. So, voila! Sepia filter to the rescue :) Besides, sherstone is an admitted sucker for sepia ... heh.
P.S. I am taking shots today, but it's rainy and I'm not hopeful of a post worthy shot.
P.P.S. No star ratings nessecary, just text feedback if you have the time or desire :)
