[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is the Carnival Cruise Lines ship "Fascination," docked at Nassau in the Bahamas. I was aboard another ship just across the water from her and did my best to shoot a longish exposure without benefit of a tripod. My lens wasn't wide enough to capture the whole ship, so I shot the stern and bow with an overlap, and stitched them together in Photoshop CS. Cropped, sharpened, adjusted levels and curves.

Great shot Robert and I cannot see the join. TFS


Great shot, Robert! I love the lights reflected in the water, and the lights strung across the top of the ship! I can't see the stitch either. These ships are just magnificent.


Neatly joined. Cannot make it out at all! Lovely picture of teh ship.I liked teh colours and teh reflections. Very well done.

Really Really Great,

Félicitation, Robert …
Vous avez réussi à mettre dans votre photographie un bateau de croisière et environ deux mille personnes dans 150 pixels de largeur sur 50 pixels de hauteur et tout cela sans tripod …
Good work and Thanks for sharing

Wow! Great shot Robert. I think you've done a perfect job of getting both the shots and also of stitching them together seamlessly. The colours and light are amazing, they have been perfectly captured. The shapes, light, reflections and clouds all go together very well. Great work. TFS.


Magnificant Shot Robert! U have captured it beautifully and the PP is amazing without even a single clue except for the note :) Beautiful colors... The silver (I wont call it white) ... The blue... The green.. The red.... The lights are Amazing and the image sharp. U have captured the reflections beautifully... Great one... :) TFS :)

Take care...

Excellent panorama. I like how it darkens towards the right end - that conveys the sense that night is falling (and night falls quickly in the tropics). Thanks for post - very impressive shot.

HEY ROBERT!!!! I was working on this very ship in 1997!!! Man, it's good to see her back!!! Thank YOU!! :))
cheers from Hungary

Beautiful night photo Robert. Excellent PP. Very well done.

What a beautiful night shot! The composition is perfect and I particularly like the blue colours of the sky. An image which is a pleasure to look at,


Sorry, just a photostitched shot of a cruise ship at night. Obviously photoshop altered.
I wouln't get too excited about not seeing joints. Photostitch does a good job.
No work of art.

Hi Robert

I really like this shot, the reflections in the water and the color really stand out. Nice job, would not be able to tell you had stitched it together.

Wonderful shot Robert. Great use of Photoshop, and the colors are quite nice too.


Hi Robert. An excellent wide image seamlessly joined. The ship is certainly impressive and the lighting and colours are excellent. TFS. Murray.

Hello Robert,

I just noticed this image as I was opening TL. Have you ever tried creating a panorama shot by combining multiple images? That would enable you to photograph the entire length of the ship in various shots, then put them together. It's a part of this technology that I find very cool. I'm kind of a provincial and am still in awe of many of these digital technologies. My HP comptuer comes with a software to do that and I'm sure there are many others that can do the same thing.

Keep shootin'

nice panoramic shot
well done

Great photograph :D

Well done with the PP stitching. The only way to know that it is a composition is looking at the lamp line over the ship, where there is a "dent".

The overall composition and colors are good.

wow. fantastique!
