La Belle

This model is located at the Texas Maritime Museum in Rockport, Texas. The ship is La Salle's ship La Belle discovered off the Texas coast in Matagorda Bay. The detailed craftsmanship displayed in the model's construction is amazing to me.

Camera / Lens: Canon 40D / Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom

I'll be posting some shots of this ship's big brother next week. I hope they measure up to these.

I like these shots. You are really showing the details that these models have.

I do think that you have a slight white balance shift in the images that, if eliminated, would help bring the details forward even more.

Good job.

I'm looking forward to the "big brother" shots you promised! :-)
