Old Ship

Originally uploaded by whipartist.
I was down at the Port of Oakland tonight to try to get photos of the San Francisco skyline at night. My attempts were largely miserable, but I stopped at Jack London Square on the way back to see if I could find anything interesting there.

I could barely make out a shadow of this ship across the estuary. I pointed the camera at it and let it have its head, to see if it could make out what my eyes couldn't. After a few minutes with photoshop's raw mode, this is what I wound up with. Here's the original. And duh! I actually looked at the photo later and realized I cropped it like a moron. This is much better.

I also wound up with a cool shot of the moon.

As I was leaving, I got stuck behind a freight train that decided to just sit there for a while. I hopped out of the car and snapped a few photos, including this one. As I was about to shoot another, the train started moving!
