Visually this was a stunning episode. I think you could have arguably chosen any scene and it would have been a standout for this episode. But all of your picks were perfect. The submarine was probably my favorite though. They put a tremendous amount of effort into constructing it and it came off just fantastic.

Agreed! I really loved the shot where it went from the sub cruising topside into the drawing of it in the book. Beautifully done.

Hi cheryl42
The submarine was my favourite as well. I had a hard time keeping the picture count down to a reasonable amount :)
Thank you so much for your comments.

There isn't alot to comment on "The Vessel" it was just perfect woe to go. All of the above shots stunning, and the submarine seeing it for the first time with the threatening lightening storm -- drew you all the way in like a great movie. I hope these VFX ?? guys get some kind of reward this yr. Do they know how greatful we are for their work ?? Hope so.

Hi Jen and Lilah_Kane
I was so happy I was able to capture the lightning. I agree with you and Lilah_Kane, the VFX have been outstanding this season. I would love to see them get some award or special recognition.
