Excellent! I love surreal shots like this. It needed a big DOF and you delivered 🙂 Surprised the lens was only at 80mm though, the scene seems a lot more “pulled together” for such a short length. I guess it must have been that impressive in reality as well 🙂

Thanks guys! I screwed up the transition from sky to ground a bit near the horizon but I simply don’t have time to make it any better.

I just realized, the tide was out, lowering the ship down at least 2m. It would really have loomed over the town if the tide was in!
