The Patsy Carolyn

This colorful shrimper sank during hurricane Florence (September 2018). I was with a group of 4 photographers, and we were all attracted to this wreck, and all ended up with variations of this shot. One of my friends ambitiously photoshopped out the rope and its reflection, another included most of the mast, and one included some ragged grass/weeds as a foreground. All of repeatedly slipped up and called her the "Patsy Cline."

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

Attractive subject, but we must not forget the horror of hurricanes.

There are just so many possible images that could be taken with this beautiful boat. I love the point of view, the color and the reflection. A gorgeous image.

I don't know about the others.... I don't like the idea of photoshopping out pieces of her. But I love your image,Harry - great balance - this is where the rule of thirds needs to be broken!
