HMS Victory: 1st Photo To 1,000 Views

The Lower Gun Deck, HMS Victory
This photo of the lower gun deck of HMS Victory, taken in November 2006, has become the first of my photos to reach 1,000 views on Flickr.

I’m really pleased that it’s this particular photo that’s the first to rack up 1,000 views. On the technical side, it’s a great example of what the Nikon D200 and Sigma 50mm lens combo can achieve without the aid of either Photoshop or HDR processing. As a subject, it gives folks who have never been to HMS Victory a great idea of just what it looks like below decks. I’m biased, for sure, but this is exactly how the lower gun deck looks – complete with the low roof (hence the widescreen-esque crop)!

And exactly how many more photos of HMS Victory from the outside do we need on Flickr anyways? 🙂

    Damned fine image m’man. Nice angle, nice converging lines and all bound in a crisp and clear photograph that sets a far more interesting tone/mood than the usual offerings of the grand old lady’s lower gun decks.

    Regards,
