. . . Another shot of the "Norwegian Majesty", this time taken while borrowing skip108's circular polarizing filter . . .

The stop at Great Stirrup Cay was not on our original itinerary. The itinerary was changed since our cruise was cut short by a day due to three factors: a "medical rescue" of someone in a sailboat; "high winds and heavy seas"; and a "leak on an overhauled cylinder head on one of the main engines". If I were the public relations person writing that letter, I would have avoided the use of the work "leak" at all costs! My kids heard that word, and all of a sudden, to them the ship was sinking.

Despite the changes, we had a wonderful time, and especially enjoyed our day here.

PP work--rotate, crop, tiny saturation(25).

Hi Karen

This belongs in a glossy brochure advertising expensive cruises. Wonderful use of the circular polarizer, the sky and sea look wonderful. Wonderfully composed



Nice, you should go on more cruise vacations and keep shooting!!!! Ya do good work.

Superb, you realy controlled your PP excellent
Very good photo.


Nice one, great lighting and that frame enhances the scene. Well seen and composed, a very nice seascape.


Hello Karen!

Nice to read you had a memorable experience on board.One of the oldest traditions still holds even in our modern era. Assistance to navigators in distress is a priority. Nevermind if you are a cruise ship or a bulk carrier. I certainly applaud this rule.

Simple composition. Saturation is well done too. Bravo!

Well done again Karen. Excellent colour and detail, lovely clouds and I love the way the curve of the rocks appears to cup the ship. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ĎAnniversary Rose Ií

Hello Karen,
Sharp fine details in the big ship!
I like the composition with a lot of wonderfully coloured ocean, inclusion of the rocky shore adds depth!
