Pibroch of Glasgow another godforsaken.

The Pibroch was built at Bowling, Scotland, in 1957 as a diesel engined boat for the Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd, and since 2002 has been lying at Letterfrack, County Galway, Ireland, in desperate need of restoration.

I would like to ivite you to my
Rusty Spotting Theme on TLens. Pibroch is one of them.
Thank you for your time.

Hi Janek, I like your pov where the perspective changes the form of the boat. It looks so huge in the front, just like if it were coming out of the pic. It brings also the details in the texture and the colour made by the corosion.

Great work! Yan. I will try to participate to your theme.

ps: Many thx for your crit in "Horses Cantering in Motion" :)

Details are so sharp it looks like its coming straight at you.

Well seen and captured.

A great looking picture of this old boat. I like how the pattern of the rust is kind of reflected in the pattern of the pier.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Janek,
TERRIFIC posting. Excellent sharpness of color and details. Good POV and the textures are true to form. Galway is one of my favorite spots !! My company had an office in Shannon. Well done and TFS Julie

Hi J-23,
A great nautical shot; and good detail on the rust/peeling paint as well as the stone or concrete on the right. Wonderful colors and POV; love how the bow of the boat pushes into your frame.
All the best,

hi Janek,
i thought I commented on this one earlier (i'm surprised I didn't!)

Colours are brilliant.
Details and textures are absolutely brilliant - the metal texture and rust on the ship's hull really come out well!
And range of tones are splendid.

It's a great presentation.
Well done.
best regards, Daniel

excellent POV here janek :)
beautiful rusty colors
i like the framing and final presentation
well done :)

Belle photo, netteté, jolie composition, belles couleurs, bien réalisée, pour moi j'évite trop d'écritures autout du cadre, peut être ce sera meilleur. Merci pour le partage, salutations.

Janek, very nice POV, feels like boat is coming out of the frame (I know that technique). Sharp, well done. :) Vandana

hi Janek. nice POV and tones. giving us the idea how old the boat was. love the rusty colors. Tfs


Interesting POV; I like closed foreground; visual impact photo.

Wow! The texture Don't call it rust! Call it relief as it's so evident! With the deep blue of the water to make a great contrast... Excellent!

Great stuff Janek, perfect colours, composition and framing.
Thanks for sharing.

Great composition!!!Deep composition!!!

hello Janek
there is a great richness on this boat, the various layers of color attract me especially. Beautiful framing. It is excellent.

Fantástica imagen, con un colorido fabuloso.
Muy buenos detalles. Buen DOF y estupendo BG.
Saludos JL.

Hi Janek,
The perspective works well in this image, almost abstract, makes it very dramatic, fantastic colours and very well presented. Some noise in the sky (blues)

red,old and some blue tones..
real good color combination and great objekt and greath POV.
have a nice day

Hello Janek,
Not the prettiest ship I have seen..!
But I easily admit the colour of rust looks good in sunshine...
Nice point of view, good details are captured!
Pablo -

superbe vieux bateau, c'est plein de matière, tout ça...

Very good composition. Excellent colours, good perspective. Very sharp and in focus.
This picture reminds me of a similar scene here in Canada, in a little town called Southampton, where a similar boat sit on the dock.
tfs (btw, nice gallerie you have here on TL)

Lovely colours in this shot, Janek. A pity they just leave the ship to rot away like this... what a pollution in the water it must be. At least you got an interesting shot out of it.
