************DEDICATED TO ALL TL FRIENDS************


Hello dear FOLKS!
Here I dedicate the colors of beautiful flags to all TL MEMBERS. I shot this moment the day when we were going to get the delivery of newly built ship from Hyundai Shipyard. We had arrived in Ulsan on 8th of April and had the hotel stay there till 13th of April. It was very nice time we had there.
The ship under discussion is capable of carrying 7000 TEU's (Twenty Equivalent Unit) i.e; 7000 containers of 20 feet long at a time. The ship is 306.1 meters long and 40 meter wide which is propelled with an engine of above 62000 KW.

That day we had a good and memorable time and the evening we were bound for the Maiden Voyage to Busan, another city of S.K.
I titled the shot as COLORS because in Naval terminology whenever there is the ceremony or event where the national flag is hoisted is called COLORS.

Thanks for visiting and sharing your helpful ideas.

Best Regards,
Ali Raza

Hi Ali,

Thank you for your colorful dedication!
The sharpness and POV in teh shot are so nice and very well thought. The colors are so beautiful and well defined in your capture. Great energy is hidden in the shot, it seems!

Very well done!
best regards,

Hello Ali

A very interesting image here. I like the way the flags fly opposite of each other in their respective rows. Good pov. Must be nice to visit all of these exciting places in around the world. Have a nice day Ali tfs


Hi Ali,

A very colorful capture of the flags, nicely highlighted by the vignetting you added. The repetition of the rows of flags is well seen from an almost abstract perspective. I'm wondering if it might have been better to crop out the metal roof at the top? I agree with Jimmy, it must be nice to travel the world and see what you have seen.

Best regards,

Hi Ali,
A very pretty sight it is a lot of flags. I did not know that these are real national flags, I thought that only decoration.
Thank you for your nice shot.
Or wherever in the world, be a nice weekend.

Good lighting and sharpness.

Hello my dear friend Ali!

I love to see your photos! It looks like you did a little shading around the edges too. Most call it vignetting, but I'm simple. I like the shading. What program do you work with for pp?

Very interesting note!

I've been thinking about capturing a photo of flags, but I haven't seen this many together before. Great capture, and composition! I see someone did a WS. I like the congratulations sign in the photo; it goes with your story.

I hope you have a good evening!

Ciao Ali,

it cannot certainly be said that in this image the colors lack: all are own!
Also I as EOSF1 I would have cut the superfluous part.

Saluti dall'Italia
