For anyone that's interested, more information about this war ship built in 1860 can be found here:
wonderful photo Mike!....I've often wanted to visit this ship (and the Victory too for that matter!)

@Ian Bramham: They're both a must see! You've blown it for the Marie Rose though as the exhibition has closed until 2012 whilst they house it in a new museum. I liked this photo for the colours and the lines in the ceiling. Hand held too! I couldn't believe I ended up with no camera shake. I just inhaled deeply and held my breath, tucked my elbows into my chest and squeezed the trigger as gently as I could.
Imagine what it was like shovelling coal down there!

@Curly: A dreadful job I should imagine Curly. The heat must have been horrific.
Would never have guessed this is a ship ! Looks like a cosy coffee place :) Great warm light and would love to try this, thks for sharing ~

Perfect control of the light.

I love the superb composition and deep colors in this wonderful picture!

Crop and focus are cleverly combine. What suffocating place.

I like the red lighting in this one.

Good morning Mike,
it looks very interesting. The colors look very strong. They have played the situation very well. I like the red lighting. Best regards Christel

i love her being in the spotlight, alone in that crowded place

At first glance I thought this might be a bar with the different lights and the warm atmosphere. Nicely seen and photographed.

Great work with the tight cropping and light control...it is making me a bit claustrophobic just looking at it. :)

I like the atmosphere and the colors

Without having read what this is - the image has a markedly surreal quality. A hi-tech Alice through the looking glass. "And when I wave, I loose the time I save, no time to say 'good-bye' - 'helloooo' - Im late, I'm late, I'm late..."

I wonder what the sailors back in 1860 would have made of the girl using a mobile phone ;o)
Good use of the light and an interesting observation of the "visitors".

Really nice image, very interesting
7 Oct 2009 8:45pm
very dramatic it looks like they are on red alert or something

What a light !!!!!!!

I like the warm lighted interior shot of this interesting place. The converging lines give a feeling of length. Very well done.

Amazingly soft and warm light - I would have never known this is a boiler room on a ship! Great shot!

The warrior spent a very long time moored up on the haven in my home town of Pembroke dock slowly falling to pieces until she was rescued,towed away and restored !!!
8 Oct 2009 3:24pm
@Anthony Morgan Lambert: It's wonderful that it did get restored and it's been beautifully done. When it was in Pembroke Dock I wouldn't have been able to help myself and would have to have sneaked on board and gone exploring it's depths. That would have been more fun than seeing it now!
this light is great - first thought was inside a train - maybe - but a ship?

faaabulous!! amazing, magical light -- there is a story here!! enchanting! bravo!!

...and I thought this was a shot in a disco!

I always find when I take photos in low light and have a high iso the pictures are very grainy due to the high iso. How come with an ISO of 800 it still looks clear?
10 Oct 2009 7:31pm
@Jon: Hi Jon, all cameras will produce more noise at a higher ISO but the amount of noise is largely down to the model of camera you have. My 40D produces very little grain even at ISO 1600. My first DSLR was a Canon 300D and I found that grain was quite harsh towards the higher end of the ISO range. To cut noise down to a minimum, always check the histogram and make sure it's biased as far right as possible without blowing out the highlights. There's a very good article on why you should do this and as soon as I find it (it's been a while since I read it) I'll send you the link.
