SMS.262 is one of the fishing boats that leave the flag markers along the coast each morning, presumably marking the location of pots or nets?

I love this muted picture of the boat with the large ship in the distance.

To me there was a nostalgic feel to it, although it is very much a working boat. So the perfect opportunity to try a little artistic experimentation. The first two use various luminance & colour curves in RawTherapee to ‘age’ the image. The third is produced using an open source haldCLUT tonal profile in RawTherapee (an open source RAW image processor) simulating real film stock.
