He best be careful that the wooden leg doesnt make him float away Jack. Another great painting:)

coops....Thanks Coops, I did spend a bit moretime on the water in this picture,and had to do the pirate twice,as the first time it was far too blurry,and also the sky had too much grain in it(unintentionally,by accident,and in error,and not on purpose).Thanks for looking Coops.....Jack.

A wonderful and witty image. I just hope the wooden leg is well seasoned and waterprofeed. :p

limey-g...Hello Geoff,I think they used to varnish them, wax them oil them,or polish them or something???..Anyway I dont think they lived long enough for them to rot,very lucky to reach forty in those days,so they say, thanks for looking in Geoff....Jack.

Caesar, Hello my friend,thanks for looking in,I have taken your advice regarding adding a bit more contast in my pictures,and it appears to be making quite a difference,I could see what you meant, and previous pictures were a little bit flat,giving more contrast and shadows has increased the depth of the pictures,thanks for that tip ,somethings we just dont notice until its pointed out by others,very helpful........Jack.

Glad to have been somewhow useful, dear Jack!
Your quality is so high that's very hard for You to improve, but it looks like You made the right tests for some more tonal emphasis and, as usual, You succeeded again to climb another step in Your path towards perfection.
