    I did. But the ship looks like it is well maintained so I knew it couldn't be.... (insert puchline)
1. yours.
2. named after you.
3. owned by the same guy that owns that vehicle you drive.

    Didn't you notice my name on the stern?

    Appreciate my support? I must be more careful. ;-) (Seriously, I thought this was a fine take - I'd bet the ship owner would be proud to have this one.)

    Jade: One of those that just would not respond to all my attempts at resuscitation. I cut out the ship and all it's rigging - that was a mammoth task for this subject as I'm sure you would know. Then I could treat the ship and the background separately but whatever I tried it ended up with the ship looking like a cardboard cut out pasted on to the scene. I knew the patient was doa when I posted it :-) No not a cruise ship, I hired the twin of this container ship and had them lift me up high with one of their cranes hehehe Appreciate your comments and support.

    I wasn't sure if this was taken from on a hill (78mm) but obviously a cruise ship would provide this vantage point. (My votes says I thought you deserved TT for this one.)

    Jade O - Funny you mentioned tilt shift. I checked the post processing info during voting to see if it was.

Mepo - Your ship has landed in unfamiliar waters..........

    I think seeing more than just the ship would have made this a better landscape.

    Interesting subject matter, but overall not a very remarkable shot. Perhaps a different shooting angle or lighting would add some drama.

    I like the way you have filled the frame here and an interesting angle.

    Almost looks like tilt-shirt photography. I think the ship needs to be sharpened or maybe there is a little focus or motion blur. Great colour and composition. Fine vantage point.

    Theme - 4
Technical - 3
Composition - 3
Originality - 3
Overall Impression - 3 The ship itself is interesting, but the lighting is flat and colors do not pop

    I think the ship is still lost against the background, despite diffusing it. Perhaps intensifying the colour would have popped it more.

    the crane tops lost in background but a good result
