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? 🙂
