[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the Norwegian Majesty, anchored off Great Stirrup Cay in the Berry Islands of the Bahamas. We were anchored here for the day, enjoying snorkeling, sunbathing, and fun and refreshments. I was perched on rocks trying to catch the spray in the foreground as the waves splashed into them but I was only marginally successful. This post is in answer to JeffK's request when critiquing skip108's shot, where Skip was able to really capture the varying colors in the water.

PP work--color saturation (and it still didn't do justice to the real thing), crop, resize, sharpen and frame.

Beautiful composition, and a great capture. Saturation is great - the texture and motion of the water nearby is magic, and the ship ... wow. It must have been a breathtaking sight.

Hola Karen,
magnífica foto, y encuadre excelente,
buenos detalles color y pov.
bonita postal,

Hi Karen,
Fantastic compo, everything's on the right place: rock, water, ship... :) Perfect colors, saturation, POV. No overexposure on the ship or on the waves. Uh, it's hard to say something useful when Rew and Hans were faster than me, so let me make it short: absolutely beautiful, a total pro image. Bravo.
Best regards, László

Bonjour Karen
magnifique photo,quelle beauté sur mer,j'adore l'ensemble et les couleurs vives
beau travail Guylaine

Impressive POV, very colorful shot.

I can imagine if you say that the color saturation still dont do justice to the real colors, should be amazing!!

Hi my friend,

Great shot. Lovely details and excellent POV. Love the blue colours of the seas and looks like a postcard picture to me. Very beautiful composition.

Hi Karen,
Hola...this is a great impression of a beautiful vessel. Excellent compositon, with the rock on the left side, with crisp blue colours and perfect brightness and contrast without OE on the white cruise ship. Perfect presentation my dear Karen. Compliments!
