    Homecoming - HMAS Toowoomba

    Managed to get a few images today of the return to port for HMAS Toowoomba who was returning from a tour of duty.

    I like the 4th and 5th, Karl. Particularly the 4th, that is really dramatic (if that is the right word). More and more, I find the simpler, less cluttered, compositions are the most effective. I think this one is outstanding: a sailor backing up the flag. You could probably sell that to the navy.

    Couldn't agree more.

    This is a very fine set. Rich tones. Vibrant colour. Good compositions. Ticks the boxes!

    I like these a lot too Karl. Good colour, clarity and exposure and you've managed to add a lot of interest with your compositions.

    Thanks all - No 4 is probably one of my favourite photos this year.

    Hi Karl.

    I like all the photos with the ship in them because each tells a story. #4 is my favorite too for reasons mentioned.

    I second Donald's comments about rich tones, vibrant colours and good compositions.
