KRI Dewaruci

The Tall Ship Dewaruci

Today we return to the Star Spangled Sailabration held in Baltimore (mid-June 2012) that marked the bicentennial of the war of 1812 and inspire Francis Scott Key to write the U S National Anthem.  Tall ships sailed into port from around the globe for this event and provided quite a spectacle. The KRI Dewaruci, operated by the Indonesian Navy, is shown below.

In a previous post we had a peek at this tall ship in the background of this boat rental image.

These massive vessels are truly a sight to behold and are always immaculately maintained.

Construction of this ship began in 1932 and was completed 20 years later, after a suspension of the project during World War II. It's overall condition gives no hint of it's true age.

Below we have a black and white version.

Both images were pulled into Lightroom 4 where a landscape preset was applied before making other slider adjustments. The B&W was also converted in LR4.

Thanks for clicking by, see you soon. ;-)

Boat Rentals

Welcome back! In today's post we have a harbor scene showing a pier where boat rentals is the business of the day. It's a huge draw for both locals and tourist alike, providing an opportunity to cruise go sightseeing around the harbor. The once popular paddle boats have been replaced with the more modern electric motor models in many places. While you will not get nearly as much exercise, you can certainly cover a greater distance for your exploration of the area.

A couple of things to notice in this image; The bow section of the tall ship KRI Dewaruci which is operated by the Indonesian Navy was in port during Baltimore's Sailabration event. Built in 1932, she continues to sail the oceans of the world.

The second thing I will point out is the lighthouse scene on the boat rental shed. It's one of my previously posted images entitled Yankee Point Light. The shed was somewhat plain looking with no signage or anything so I thought I would take advantage of the space. A burn line was added across the top of the image in Photoshop to create a shadow from the roof above.

Thanks so much for visiting!
