I think the crop really makes this pic. It's a horizontal composition and needs to be cropped into a beautiful, linear image as was done by Gary. Brad's take on it is finished and refined looking. I can see that hanging as a commercial image in fine seafood restaurants (or a nice seaside hotel) on any of the three coasts. The white "matting" around the B/W image works very well. It's sophisticated. A sepia might work as well with black matting, but I'd have to see it.

Unfortunately, that kind of crop leaves little room for ad copy. :-)

But seriously....

I was looking for an inspirational message for this graphic and I thought of the Psalm that begins "They that go down to the sea in ships..." Not being a religious person or Biblical scholar, I had to look it up.

I found it at the link below where I stumbled onto some TERRIFIC old snapshots. Check this site out. I think it's terrific, whatever it is.

They that go down to the sea in ships

Oh yea, the picture. How's this?
