Royal Yacht Britannia

This image would have been good by itself. ElementalPaul took a lot of time to get the composition just right. However this is not just about the composition. It is also about how he used a long exposure technique to add an an entirely new level of detail. The stars and the light reflected on the blurred water add new textures that contrast with the inorganic steel of the harbor and the ship. This contrast mirrors the between the brightest whites and the darkest blacks of the image, which brings us full circle back to the idea of composition. Amazing what one can create when you have all your techniques working in near perfect harmony.
