took the last image and used ACR to bring shadows to the right, brights to the left, and reset blacks and whites to the edges. Definitely brought out a lot of detail (which may or may not be good for a fog scene) - but anyway, while ETTR is about capture, What to do with in Post is perhaps even more critical!

Looks like Der fliegende Holländer on a collision curse (pun absolutely intended). :lol:
Dutch ghost ship, cursed and forever lost and roaming! For sure.

Love your fantasy concoctions Piet, and your poetry. The ghost ship certainly takes this one to a new level of spookiness and mystery. I enjoyed the links too. I don't aspire to what either of these gentlemen did but am glad that others do! Adventure and imagination are what keeps us young enough to enjoy our lives, and not get sucked into mind-numbing nothingness before we're ready.

Wonderful on the 2nd image. Glad you toned down that back shell.

thank you Steve and Minnie and Ernst. Ernst - knowing how to do something is half the battle, the other half (that I struggle with Even More), is knowing What to do. Thanks for that confirmation!

Spent a pleasant Sunday with these. Amazing what some folks can accomplish. Sad about Ewasko. Wonder whether they will ever learn anything. Matt

soon to bed I go
closer now, but not there yet
be brave and foolish

in rolling deep waves
and mist I go farther still
drifting, lost, smiling
Love this back and frothing. Delightful.

May I change one word in mine? From random to raging. Raging waves sounds and seems better.

Tag. Your turn.

Matt
raging I like - heading in your direction!

her neck
long and pale
she only wants
companion ship

on the deck
long faced and pale
the men stare in fear
and in wonder

at last her neck
long and pale
breaks the mast
and drags
the lonely ship
under

No haikus? Here you go.

surging from thick fog
phantom flags my little boat
loved one left alone

Piet,

Morning thoughts on a rewrite:

surging from thick fog
phantom rams my little boat
loved one now alone

Over to you, my friend.

I like your haiku - rams is better. I need to work on another cut, but until I get my head straight, since you mention thick fog, I layer in some of the clouds I shot this afternoon, and gave it a cooler-spookier (I hope) green/blue mood.
