Good day everybody!

Let me propose you another view of the Artic Icebreaker NGCC Pierre Radisson which was in attendance at Becancour yesterday. I just left another ship and was heading my way back to the office. The icebreaker cleared the basin in preparation for the arrival of another visitor.

See the NGCC Pierre Radisson dimensions , engineering

Robert

Technically: Here the image was slightly cropped after correcting the tilt of the horizon. I liked the water leaking from the starboard anchor, creating these circles in the open water. The ice floes were drifting in the main Channel. A batture on the left kept the ice floes away from the dock. Note the reflection of the sun on the water surface is creaing an original texture on ship's hull too.

Cheers!
Robert

Hola Robert! Une belle composition! J'aime enormement le jeu des plans et la nettété de ta photo! Bravo...(je vois tous mes anciens amis sont rendu 'Doyens du pointage' ;)

Hi Robert! The blue water is just so stunning. I like the flatness of it with some ripples, it really shows that the movements of water molecules are getting slower in this frigid weather. Great colors and details. I like the saturation. Very good vantage point.
Cheers!
Freddie :)

Bonsoir Robert
Composition, netteté et couleurs sont au rendez-vous. De toute beauté. Merci

Paul

Superbe image Robert. Un autre delice pour l'oeil. Felicitation! Jean.

Extremely sharp image! Crips details, colors are amazing. J'aime vraiment l'Effet de l'onde sur l'eau, petit détail mais combien frappant. les gravures sur le bateau, l'effet de courbes de la coque, l'horizon sur le tier haut. Tout est bien pensé dans cette photo bravo!

Comment améliorer cette photo ? Tehniquement rien à faire, au niveau créatif non plus, le reflet du bateau canadian est excellent, la seule chose que j'aurais tenté est une police différente.

Bravo ! Excellent travail!

Bonsoir Robert,
Une petite visite éclair pour te dire comme j'apprécie les couleurs et le cadrage de cette superbe photo. Comme Michel Rivard, elle chante le goût de l'eau. Bravo, c'est vraiment plaisant à l'oeil!
Annie

Ps/ Demain matin, je serai à nouveau dans mes valises jusqu'à dimanche prochain. Une bonne semaine à toi!

Hello Robert,

You have always to get nice perspective and this is so cleverly peek. Making the foreground with this haul in contrasting colors is such a great idea capturing this winter tranquility. Beautiful horizon with the red/white ship and blue sky.

Regards,
Jusni

Great composition Robert, I like the detail that you have in both the foreground and the background. I like the blues that you have captured. Your photo is as crisp as the temperature when it was taken!

Bonjour Robert
Très belle photo avec certains détails que fonta la distinction, tels comme le reflets des mats du bateau rouge et cet angle de bateau beu.

Stunning photo dear Robert, everything is so crystal clear and sharp..love the colours..

What I find eyecatching is the water ripples, the scratches on the boat, and the little reflections from the boat in the background..just beautiful... very well done.

Thanks for sharing it with us.

Kindest wishes
Dawn

Haha! What a brilliant shot! Ecellent composition, amazing sharpness, tones, saturation and detail.

Hi Robert,

I especia;;y like the play of colors here, the red returning in both vessels and the blue in the right vessel, the water and sky. Razor sharp and great composition. Framing is outstanding as well. Again a winner!

Best regards,

Edwin

Hi Robert,

Interesting view of seeing the icebreaker . . Contrast color of red and white at the distance . .
Well composed by having another ship as a frame . .
Great shot my friend

Tfs,
Tjutjut

Many thanks for your kind words on Today's breakfast .

Hello Robert.
Very nice and colourful picture.
It has all the ingredients for a fine looking scene.
Regards from Jan

Ça sera pas mal aprés une bonne couche de peinture :-)
Excellente capture.
Excellente netteté et détails.
J'adore la composition
Pierre

Bonjour Robert,
C'est toujours un plaisir renouvelé de regarder ce que vous avez publié.
Cette dernière photo en est encore la preuve.Les couleurs et la façon originale de capturer votre image me plaisent beaucoup.
Bravo et bonne journée.
Guylaine

Hi Robert,
Indeed tranquility! Superb shar and clear capture well presented as always. the blue and red tones are striking in this picture and so is the serene water and it's ref;ections. A pity the ship isn't fully reflected on the water, but you can't have it all. Superb posting my friend!
Hans

Bonjour Robert
Superbe point de vue artistiquement cadré avec cette étrave en premier plan qui situe immédiatement le photographe dans son espace. Couleurs vives et bien rendues, mise au point parfaite et belle profondeur de champ qui nous permet même de voir Champlain sur la rive nord. J'aime bien cette eau calme à peine ridée par l'eau que l'ancre laisse s'égoutter.
Bravo Robert
Serge

i like how u use the ship in the forground as part of the frame robert :)
it givs this image an interesting POV
beautiful colors
the ripple on the water is a plus :)

koh

bon POV et bon cadrage, j'aime ce genre de compo, de la profondeur, une bonne lumière, de belles couleurs
amicalement

Bonjour Robert,

Michel

Hey Robert !
Excellent photographic quality !
The blues and other colours are very vibrant as is a usual feature in your pictures :-)
I really like the crop on the ship !

Well done. Best regards, Daniel

Hi, Robert,
Bravissimo for this shot.
Nicely seen and the presentation is refined.

Very tranquil Robert. That ring of water grabs my attention, and then the cold ice. Super composition, well done

Well Robert, it sure is a tranquil scene. Excellently saturated colours and a sublime compo: perfect use of the ship's bow to lead the eye to the other ship. Again, one to put on your wall.
TFS

Superb contrasts Robert! Very well composed, good colour and such a silky effect on the water. TFS,
David

Robert,

Wonderful shot - the sharpness is superb, lovely composition, and the depth of colours is excellent. The rippling water adds that final touch.

...tim

Hi Robert,

Did you throw in a stone yourself to get such a nice ripple in the water, or was that pure coincidence? ;-) Ha, I now read it in the note. Wonderful point of view and all the primary colours you always use in it - being blue and red, both of the more vibrant kind. Nice!

Greetings, Dennis

Salut Robert, c'est une excellente composition, vraiment très bien. Avec ta qualité de couleurs habituelle. Du grand Robert, merci !

Colors and composition are, as always, amazing, Robert! A beautiful calm day, and agreed, the ripples add visual interest to the shot. Water drops from the anchor? I take your word for it ;)

Hi Robert, Good bold colours here and an interesting composition. I like the ripples on the right breaking the flat water and the foregound bow colours are contrast nicely with the inverse from the water and the background ship. Nice work.

Robert,
For a young lad (see your photo) you're pretty nifty with the old magic box!
Great gallery - outstanding sharpness and colour in this one. Neat composition too.
