[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The cruise ship awaits its passengers who are touring Key West Florida. A storm was coming in, giving the sky and water an other-worldly look, which I have enhanced somewhat.

Hello Robert,

Excellent shot. The color of the water and the sky looks great. The bird in the shot adds to the nice view.

Good post processing also.


The love the bird in the shot. Very moody feeling - would love to read in your note what it is you did in PP to enhance.

Fabulous processing work here Robert.
Very impressive colors and composition.
Awesome work, it's really great.

Excellente image avec un cadrage impécable. Bravo Robert. Gilles

Excellent job with your post processing. It has an HDR feel to it, is that the technique that was used? The composition is also very strong and really helps to show the massive size of the boat. TFS

Very cool shot. Stunning lighting. Well composed and the pelican is a nice touch.

Hi Robert,
Lovely coastal image with the giant ocean linner looming over the beautiful green harbor.
Nice bit of gold in the sky and of course the charming pelican could not go unnoticed.
Regards, Tom

MY my...you get an award for this one Robert! Excellent pp work, an almost surreal sight, using the greenish cast, with the sun peeking in is really nice. LOVE the water here, it almost glows! You get a TEXAS EXCELLENCE AWARD for this one...and I did look at your drinking messes you up pic and giggled....so true!

Hi Robert

I like the silhouetted pelican, which is placed so that its graphism attracts more attention than the much larger cruise ship. Fantastic sunset colour & sharpness, with a superb upward pov on the ship. Good lighting contrasts & framing. Tfs!

Hi Bob

This is a fantastic POV to capture the shear size of this ship, the pp-ing looks good, possibly slightly overdone on the sky but still a great image. Nice one mate....


Amazing colors in the sky and waters. Great atmosphere. Amazing shoot overall

Hi Robert!
Fantastic shot with superb POV, sharpness and lovely colors. Very, very nice! (I like the pelikan in the foreground. :) )
Thanks for sharing!

I went thru your entire gallery Robert, because of that one, single photo in your gallery, and I must express my sincere doubts about this photo.

It looks like a poster, fabricated in some graphic design lab, and it is a combination of some photographs, and ( possibly) some highly technical, digital painting.

This is too surrealistic and untrue to be.. Well... To be true ?

God, forgive me, for I am full of doubts


Both the pelican and the tie-off post for the docking of ships balance the ship on the right hand side of the image. Impressive work, Sir. Thanks for sharing!
