[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Lost in Thought, or Feeling Alone. I do not know which, but this scene caught me at dawn on the cruise ship. This woman sat on the deck while the entire line of chairs to her right were empty and the tqbles down stairs were empty. I don't know why. There was no avenue to engage in conversation after the shot to ask, but it just looked lonely.

Handheld Nikon D200 with -2.00 exposure dialed in. PS CS2 for cropping, levels, sharpening, and some burning in the sky.

a very well taken photo, enjoying the fact that the subject is not located in the centre of the image, thus applying a greater DOF. the colours are nice and intense especially around the clouds. all in all an excellent image.

Hi Skip,
My first question to her would be to ask why she is on the deck with all those empty chairs, but then realized that the rail must have obstructed her vision of the sunrise.
Wonderful shot . . . I like the layers and the repetition, as well as the depth and three-dimensional quality of the clouds, not to mention the human aspect of her loneliness.
Take care,
