This is quite a pretty ship, considering its huge and boxy funnel, but if you try to redesign that funnel, nothing seems quite as good a fit as the way it ended up. I suppose I could have rotated this photo 2 degrees clockwise for a more nearly level view, but the resolution would have suffered, and I think it's better as a high definition shot this way. However, if there is a demand for a rotated revision, let me know and I will be happy to accommodate.
