Well, I hope they don't expect anymore rope because I think they used it all! Very nice focus - that ornament in the front looks really cool.

Busy. Subject isn't really clear. Sorry, I don't know why.

Too busy for some, I'm sure, but I rather like the mass of rigging - shows the complexity of the vessel well.

The angles created by the ropes creates interest

Interesting angle, really shows the intracate rigging, seems to be more back-lit to me could be why the yellow isn't screaming - that might be a good thing.

Wow. All kinds of crazy lines here and there and everywhere. But I think it works. Gives you a real sense of what went into manning one of these ships. Such intricate work.

the rigging is too busy, a wider view with some background may have helped, good color and focus

Expects what? Stange title. Nice shot although the rigging is a mess and detracts from the fine colors.

I wouldn't want to be in charge of mastering that rigging!!! Nice capture. I like the crop. 6

I love old historic ships and you've found one here! Only wish it wasn't cropped/framed so tight

All those ropes really accentuate the mastery that went behind building those...

How did they ever manage all those lines - nice perspective...
