Congrats on your sale Mel !! You have wonderfully captured a piece of history ... an image that can be passed down from generation to generation !! GREAT JOB !!

Now THAT's what I call nostalgia! Beautiful shot. Reminds me of a piece written by Mark Twain about the joy of being a riverboat pilot!

I'll bet Mark Twain would have had this picture on on his wall had it been taken a century and a half ago. Great shot with tons of atmosphere.

Powerful. Big seller is right ! I love river boats.

Artist's Description

(Copyright Mel Steinhauer all rights reserved) At the 2006 Tall Stacks Event, river conditions prevented all of the boats from docking at Cincinnati. The Mississippi and Delta Queens took passengers on over-night visits to the towns of Madison and Maysville. When these grand old riverboats returned, they met for a race, a parade of boats and a fireworks display. That night, they docked side-by-side at nearby Schmidt Field. Early the next morning as a fog slowly lifted, I witnessed a timeless scene that sadly may never occur again. This magnificent sight made me feel like a lucky riverboat gambler holding three of a kind, when I was dealt ... A Pair Of Queens. I created this image from my original photograph taken on location by adding digital enhancements, textures and painterly-style effects. These effects and image details will become more visible by clicking inside the green magnifier square as the cursor is placed over the image.
