Here, I liked the fg anchor framing the parallel bg anchor in the distance, & also mirroring the angle of the roofline of the shiprecks museum, which also is following the same diagonal axis of the fg anchor. Taken on an overcast day with light rain.
The Dutch were in Indonesia for over 300 years, & there was no Suez Canal, so many ships went via Capetown in South Africa, & some crashed into offshore reefs, before they were able to turn north to Batavia (Jakarta). The wreck of the pride of the Dutch East Indies fleet (also called 'Batavia',) is inside the museum, along with many fascinating exhibits. It was excavated from the sea bed in the 1970's . The section of coastline north of Perth to about Shark Bay is aptly known as the 'Shipwreck Coast' with over 7 major wrecks from the 17th to 19th centuries.
Oh & here is a map showing 4 shipwreck locations:

Bonjour, cher Chris,
L'ancre monumentale annonce la couleur quant à l'édifice abritant un musée.
Le choix du cadrage est très bien observé.

I like the way you've composed the image through the old anchor. Well done, great work!

Une bonne idée cette prise de vue qui laisse découvrir le musée derrière l'ancre.
Bravo et bonne journée.

Un point de vue remarquable sur le musée. Très bien choisi et pensé d'utiliser cet ancre qui donne de la profondeur à l'image et du style.

like the POV here it is very effective and almost menacing. The anchor looks like the head of a dragon. Great texturing and detail and considering the weather this shot is managed and presented excellently.
Regards - Brian.

The sea anchor is spectacular thanks to your clever framing. It's a creative way to present the museum. Despite the weather, the picture is bright, colorful and sharp. Bravo.
Have a nice day

Hi Chris, very good and interesting composition with this unique anchor, very sharp and technically very good. Very good and interesting job well done my friend, my congratulations for that. Tfs.
Good afternoon and happy week.

I like how you have used the anchor. I have a feeling that I would have tried to use it in a similar way ... I did at Whitby. I think it makes an eye-catching f/g and a point of reference for the other features in the shot. It has lovely composition whilst the shaft of the anchor creates a diagonal across the frame.
Goos textural details.
My warm regards,

I don't think I've ever seen this place, and I'm sure I've never seen it from this POV. A really inventive POV that ably demonstrates both the beautiful old anchor, puts the maritime theme in context and of course shows off the beautiful old building. Nice work, especially in what looks like very difficult light.
Thanks, and have a beautiful day

Bon cadrage de l'ancre avec vue sur le musée, intéressante composition, bien vu et réaliser

A very clever way of presenting this sculpture in the foreground with the museum in the background. I like the way this anchor occupying the whole frame with another one in the bg. Very informative text.

Good evening Chris,
A big anchor in front of the square leading the viewer onto the museum edifice.
An artistic approach yet, well taken. I can't even imagine the giant ship it served in older times, cruising long ranges from Holland to Australia.
Fine taken POV, and light management.
