Dining Salon aboard the Star of India

This section in the aft of the ship is the only comfortable area aboard. Under the skylight is the dining table.
On the left are the captain's cabin, the pantry, the surgeon's cabin and the lavatory. On the right are the mates cabins and passenger cabins.
I finished photographing the contents of these cabins today with the assistance of JB. Next week we go down to the main deck to photograph ship models, tools, instruments etc.

This image was a difficult exposure by the way with both very bright bright and dark areas.

A superb picture. You're right, below decks in a ship there is a tremendous contrast between the light and dark areas and you have managed this very well indeed.
