'Naval Ships'

Post by davechinn » Wed Nov 15, 2017 6:06 pm

Not knowing where to post these, I felt transportation fit the category best.

While in Norfolk, Va a little over 3 years ago, we took a luncheon cruise, where I was able to capture some of the naval ships in port. The submarine didn't have a hull number showing so I'm taking a guess that it's the USS Scranton (SSN-756) after doing a search. Not 100% sure though. The others and not in any order are, USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN-71), USS SAN ANTONIO (LPD 17), USS Kearsarge (LHD-3), USS Harry S. Truman (CVN-75), USNS COMFORT (T-AH 20) then an image of two carriers Truman, Roosevelt and the LHD Kearsarge which is a Wasp-class amphibious assault ship.

These are a little heavily processed as I wanted the dramatic clouds to stand out. Thoughts and comments?

The USNS Comfort (hospital ship) shot is of particular interest for me because of its being a reminder of the human costs of war. The heavier processing of the clouds in the carrier photos is a bit beyond my comfort level, but I understand your pov :) With the strong profiles of some of the ships, I'm curious if you played with trying a silhouette against the clouds.

I think I'd experiment a bit with #1 so that it feels less tilted. Difficult with the perspective and lines probably.

A powerful series, Dave!

Ahh :o memories...

I was stationed there in the early 80's on an aircraft carrier. These images definitely bring back good memories. Thanks for posting them.

I can see your point with the hospital ship, but for me all of them are a reminder of the human costs of war, since they are warships and are built and used as such. I did not try a silhouette with any of these. Actually it never crossed my mind, but may consider it.

After posting I thought #3 had more of a noticeable tilt than the first. I may be missing something there though. Thanks for your thoughts and interest Linda.

Oh, yeah. Nothing like being putting in at the far end of the base. :x

Sounds as though we have something in common other than photography. I was on the USS America (CVA-66) 1972-76. I took these photos while in Norfolk for an America reunion held in Va Beach. They have these in various parts of the country every 2 years. Been attending them since 2008.
