James... Fantabulous (new word) photos! I have quite a few great shots of the battleship of NJ from the Camden side. I work 1 minute from the waterfront! :)

I really like that first picture. It is awesome. The battleship New Jersey is spectacular. The Missouri is over here in Honolulu and it's fantastic to go tour. I love it. Great shots :)

Martha in PA said...

Great shots. The composition of the 1st is awesome!

I like all three shots! Fantastic pictures.

RuneE said...

Somehow the monochrome version (a reflection) game me the most impressive, but also austere version of this momentous vessel of war.

Leora said...

Outdoor Wednesday - I didn't know that meme!
Love your monochrome - very creative.
Your second photo is a lovely water shot and a great show of the ship.
Your third is sky, sky, beautiful sky.

Thanks for all 3!

Really, it represents the end of an era.

Great ship, this one is one of the few I'd really like to see with my eyes! Beautiful photos, the middle one is perfect. But this time, and oddly for a color-maniac, I like more the black and white version.

Wow! Excellent! Especially the first shot with the lantern! Great angle!

Asta said...

Hi James,

Wonderful pictures. You know how much I love water and this is just perfect!

Best regards
Asta

PS: I left a small thing for you at my blog today. You already got it, but one can never get too much of the goodies-:)

Beautiful images. I'm leaning towards the last one as my fave.

Julie said...

Big boat! I liked the monochrome the most /although the blue in the rest is gorgeous/. The composition is very interesting - the ship is like a giant ghost shadow on the background - like the contrast and everything about this view!

Arija said...

Great shots, love the sky in the last one.

Irene Toh said...

Beautiful sky and a big battleship.

Norm said...

I think the first shot is the most interesting. The juxtaposition of the lamppost and doorway, with the battleship. Maybe I am still living in my hippie days, but it would be a wonderful world if the battleships were all relegated to the background.

Christi said...

Impressive. Thank God for the sailors and ships who protect our freedoms!

Joie de vivre is a good thing James.

The third picture with the sky line is gorgeous!

Joyce said...

We use to live on the Jersey side of Philly and we would see the ships on the way to the airport. I love your first shot. I am glad I peaked in your blog today. I am having so much fun seeing what people photograph. Thanks for sharing your shots with me.

Love your monochrome!

That second one with the gorgeous skies behind the ship makes it most worthy of framing!
