A View From Western Maryland

Ship In A Window


This photo was taken from a different view point on Baltimore Street in Cumberland, MD. Those who are from this city might find this view if they look long enough. When I saw this I thought about seeing ships in a bottle, but seeing one in a window was definitely different and quite interesting. So, I photographed it from where I was across the street in another building.

Taken with a P&S 5MP camera, the ISO was 100 exposed at 1/80 sec @ f/4.9. In Photoshop Elements I cropped the photo for this view, adjusted levels to make sure the color was the way I saw it and added a touch of vignetting. After re-sizing for web viewing I then added just a smidgen of sharpening to just the ship and nothing else.

Actually, there are many such interesting things to see in Cumberland and all you have to do is just walk around and look. As I always say, if you are not looking you will never see. When you come here take some time and just walk around town for awhile and you will be quite surprised at what you might find.

Yeah, this is my world in Western Maryland and you are welcome to it.
