Elissa captain

The photo above was taken on the Elissa day sail last week. This is captain Kip Files from Maine, who comes down to Galveston every year to skipper the tall ship Elissa on her annual day sails out of Galveston. This shot was taken as Elissa was coming in to dock. If you're in the area, the Spanish Navy tall ship Juan Sebastián Elcano will be in Galveston with free tours until Monday. For the image here, textures and edges were added in Photoshop.


  1. Great dramatic environmental portrait Steve!

    I really like the composition and your post-processing!

    Well done!

  2. I like this a lot. Great composition, leading lines, nice color, and I think the texture adds to the plain blue sky.


  3. Nicely done. I like the composition a lot. It does a great job showing a small man running this very large piece of machinery.
    Good job.

  6. Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
