Still on duty,

This ship actually just sailed an hour ago. The photo was taken however yesterday at 16:39hours when she was approaching the dock No. 11 at Trois-Rivieres. A heavy shower just passed over us and was slowly going away, as the sun came out illuminating the scene. Therefore the dark sky and rainbow next to the ship.

Photo taken from my car, through the opened window as it was obviously still raining.

Wow, a dark dramatic sky and a beautiful rainbow!!! A great background to make a picture of this boat!! So, you did this on the best moment en captured it very well! A splendid shot!!

hi Robert i like the details colours here the details are very sharp and makes the ship stand out well
tfs regards bryan

Hi Robert
It is possible to get such pure colours only after the rain. Very curious, good technically photograph. The rainbow is adding additional colours for your image.
Races are interesting but I prefer the sea, large ships and small boats.

Hi Robert :)
To such a view, such a light, contrasts and as well the rainbow it is necessary to have happiness ;-) As it okay, you could shoot it.:)
Superb view!

Hellow Robert,
A dramatic dark sky with rainbow highlighted by the reflective light from the ship creating a strong impressive image.

Hi Robert,
Superb image, stunning contrast created by the bright ship's hull and the dark sky. The rainbow is a nice bonus. Great presentation of such a mighty ship!

Hi Robert,
A very sharp and neat presentation in this artistic presentation.
Splendid lighting and a wonderful telephoto viewpoint. Excellent details and a complementing frame!
Again, my compliments for this fabulous lighting, you must have a good sense of fine photography, my friend.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Bravo Robert,
La lumière et l'arc en ciel sont les deux cjoses qui m'ont frappé en premier . Le résultat est remarquable . La composition est également impécable tout comme la présentation d'ailleurs . Tu as su capter l'image au bon moment .

Hi Robert,
For me this is master piece in the ship photography,the way you composed with amazing lighting condition with darker BG and the rainbow makes it so beautiful.

Best Wishes

Hello Robert,

One of the sharpest posts on here today. For a shot taken from your car, it could easily be mistaken for a tripod captured image.
The moody light really adds something special to the overall image. The detail is pin sharp throughout and colours are perfectly balanced with not one hot spot.
Compositionally it can't be faulted, it's a fantastic capture and very well presented.

Bonjour Robert,
Je crois que c'est une de tes plus belle photos de bateaux à date!
Le point de vue avec le bateau qui semble avancer vers nous est spectaculaire...l'atmosphère avec ce ciel orageux et l'arc en ciel l'est tout autant.
Côté technique, tous les paramètres sont parfaitement contrôlés.
Directement dans mes favoris!

Bonjour Robert,
Une superbe prise de vue, tu as d'ailleurs toujours de belles photos avec ces bateaux dans les ports de la Mauricie. Cute cet arc-en-ciel... bravo encore une fois
Bonne soirée !

Bonsoir Robert,

Une impressionnante lumière que tu nous montres ici. La brillance la lumière sur le bateau par rapport à l'eau et le ciel sombre détache le bateau à merveille. Et un bonus un ptit arc-en-ciel. Excellent point de vue, focus et exposition parfaites. Présentation sombre. Mille fois Bravo!


I like the contrast between the cloudy sky and a comparatively light color tones of the gigantic ship, Robert!

The picture is pin-sharp and clarity is amazing. The colors are natural and so nicely define the beauty of the picture. In addition, an elegant black frame also enhances the beauty of the work.

A high-quality work!

My greetings,

Salut Robert,
Jolie prise de vue Robert et composition,
les couleurs sont magnifiques par un temps orageux,
bel effect d'arc-en-ciel en arrière-plant que cadre très bien ta photo..
Excellent cliché
compliments et salutations..

Quelle image impressionnante! Bravo Robert c'est vraiment extraordinaire, du beau et du bon travail! Rien n'y manque, une réussite totale. Merci.


Hello Robert,
good to see you still favour the extraordinary.
I like this view. It is strong, accurate and a perfect catch of very good light. Exposure and sharpness are just on the point - as with 99% of your posts. The detailed note makes it a great post to look at and read the story behind it.
Thank you for sharing this.

Hi Robert...fantastic tones and saturation. I really don't understand how you can get this great shot from a car...unbelievable.
