This photo, in addition to excellent use of shadows and the available lighting, coveys how large the ships are relative to the men who work on the reclamation/demolition projects, usually with little more than hacksaws, sledgehammers or, very occasionally, a blowtorch. The man pictured is dwarfed by one of the blades of one of the ship's propellers, which is only a tiny fraction of the size of the ship itself. The use of black and white enhances the viewers' sense of the bleakness of the scene as well as the ships' mass.
