Cruise Liner send off in style.
« on: March 08, 2018, 07:49:51 PM »
Hi Folks.
While waiting for a car ferry home we went in to the Mayflower Park in Southampton for an ice cream and got to accidentally witness this sendoff.
It is the Ovation of the Seas and I think it was the VIP tour. It is a shame that the modern liners have none of the class or style of the older ships and look more like a tower block fell over! :-\

I couldn’t find another thread for liners, if there is one I will happily move this post, if not feel free to add to it if you have anything cruise related, river, lake or whatever you have.

Cheers, Graham.

Queen Mary 2 quietly enters Sydney at Harbour 5:30am today. Hand held on a boldard 0.8s f4.0 iso640 with my point and click SonyRX100 (sorry, this is my walkabout camera, I had left my 6D at home).

For some reason this ship makes me think immediately of 'The Poseidon Adventure' !   ;D

Love 1065.

Hi jwilton.
Very nice shots, thank you for joining in, I have used a bollard as a tripod before, it is still difficult not to wobble around on the rounded top, I think you did well.
Just passing or we’re you working on the dock or awaiting her arrival just to get a shot?

Cheers, Graham.

Hi Sporgon.
Hmm, I’m not sure why it would bring The Poseidon Adventure to mind! :) ‘72 original or ‘05 remake? I have only seen the original.
Thanks for the compliment.

Cheers, Graham.

Very nice pictures. I especially like the first one. I like the city in the background.

I particularly like the first shot. All the elements come together to make it a great picture. I'm not sure that it would have been better with another camera.... yes, you might have gotten it a bit sharper, or you could have shot HDR to get more range, but you would have lost the look.... And besides, the moment would have been gone.

The best camera is the one in your hands

Paddlewheeler on the Columbia River
« Reply #9 on: March 09, 2018, 11:50:08 AM »
This was taken last Fall in the Columbia River Gorge.  We had some big wildfires and I had hiked up Beacon Rock to see if I could get some photos of the fire damage across the river on the Oregon side.  i liked the ominous lighting.

There are three paddle wheel cruise vessels on the river that I know of.  I call them small, medium and large.  This is the medium size one.

Camera:  Canon 77D


Current bodies:  5D4, 5D3, 77D, T5i, S100, S90

Hi Sporgon.
Oops, didn’t think of that, I was looking for physical similarities of the vessels which I couldn’t really find.  ::)

Cheers, Graham.
