    Thanks Tori.
    Although all pp settings were low level, I was attempting to achieve a subtly improved natural look, I'm not at all sure about applying sharpening to seascapes. Sharpening might be good in landscapes, but water generally looks better softer, so I'm not sure about the overall effect. I guess I'll be able to achieve better results when I learn how to use selection tools in Gimp (or eventually in CNX2) to make selective or isolated changes etc.

    cheers,

    Benjamin

    The nearest one is the Overseas Joyce, an auto carrier.

    Two very different cargo vessels, Kyle, good shot.
    Here are two (three, if you count the little water taxi) vessels on Sydney Harbour, shot at Campbells Cove/Sydney Cove Terminal, The Rocks:

    The a*se end (aka stern) view of the Rottendam, a Dutch cruise ship (making some nice lines with the Opera House in the background):

    A tall ship on Sydney Harbour, available for Harbour cruises:

    (Both shot with the Fuji).

    I really like that last shot, Benjamin. The exposure, colors, and subject are great! The only thing I'd change (if you were ever in a situation to reshoot or a similar situation) is to move the shoreline down to the bottom 1/3, so there is less water and more sky. Excellent job. With the Fuji? So is it an "archive" shot?

    Thanks Tori, you're right about the 1/3 thing, although I shot it that way because I felt the water was more interesting than the sky, which was pretty featureless, no interesting clouds etc, but the reason I didn't move the shoreline/horizon to the top 1/3 to capture more water was that immediately in front of the image captured there was a wharf with distractingly high pillars between the ship & I, hence the shot as is.

    Shot with the Fuji last Friday afternoon, 20MAR09, so no, not from the archive, I still shoot with the Fuji occasionally when I don't feel like taking the D80 to work or carrying it the whole day.

    Kyle, I really enjoyed your San Diego Bay series! The Naval Police boat looks a little serious with, what looks like, an M60 mounted on the back. "God's Blessing" looks like fun, and the last shot is montagesque in its composition, I love the schooner in the right foreground with the raked masts, the ferry or cruise-boat as a modern contrast and the air-craft carrier in the background providing a size reference and some context, a very interesting and well composed shot.
    The Las Vegas gondola is beautiful and the gondolier is obviously dressed for the part.

    cheers,

    Benjamin

    Hi Benjamin:

    Thanks for the nice comments. Being on the Nimitz was fun as it is not something you can normally do, but Las Vegas is interesting photographically.
