Flotsam and Jetsam.

Flotsam is floating wreckage of a ship or its cargo. Jetsam is part of a ship, its equipment, or its cargo that is purposefully cast overboard or jettisoned to lighten the load in time of distress and that sinks or is washed ashore......something I always wanted to know.

This is a collection of floating equipement associated with nets and fisherman.
I have cropped close and converted to b/w tones to add to the mood.

Hi Steve, effective in b/w and yet I would have liked to see this collection in colour.
I do like the tight crop concentrating the eyes on the shapes and textures.The 'plain' framing works well.
Tfs, regards Jean.


The b&w conversion is a good idea, the result gives an interesting atmosphere.
Textures look great and lighting is nicely managed.

Ciao Steve, lovely and original B&W, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hi Steve,
A great crop to obtain this composition. Perfect details of these ship's parts.
Good light and splendid PP work in this B&W conversion.
