Here's another from Google ......................... https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@53.40435 ... 8192?hl=en ;) and a bit of info about the Ferry boat, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_Royal_Daffodil I fear she may "go" the same way as the Royal Iris .... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MV_Royal_Iris ....

Not wishing to Hijack the original thread, I just feel very strongly / passionately about our Maritime Heritage. ;)

After the requested retouching:

With a low-end-resolution-picture retouching is not that easy – but I have tried my best. Beside the retouching I have tried to enhance to colors, brightness and contrast a little bit...


Or something like this – I have become a paviour (it is not perfect, but still the difference is obvious :)

Great shots of a great car, Stan!

And good work on the retouch, Simon: the front end details make the picture far more vivid...

Thank you Pim – I had a few minutes time to spare, so why not invest them wisely :-)
