'Damn the Defiant'

The film 'Damn the Defiant', starring Alec Guiness and Dirk Bogarde, is what I'd call a pretty good maritime yarn. Released in 1962, directed by Lewis Gilbert, it's the story of a mutiny aboard an 18th C. British Naval ship.There is a good Wikipedia synopsis here. I was intrigued enough by the closing battle scenes to take some screen shots with a view toward abstraction. These images could become paintings, we'll see. Let me know what you think.
