We had a great week end by Astoria, Oregon. We watched this large ship first pass under the Astoria bridge via the mighty Columbia River, then sail her way to mouth of the river, then out to the Pacific Ocean. Also a wonderful sunset to cap off the day.

Actually the Honda ship is a Ro-Ro (Roll On Roll Off), which is specialized in Automobile transportation overseas.

Nice fotos Lar, specialy the sunset. Watch out for the horizon level though.

Lar I like the last two very much

If you ever get the opportunity to look inside those care boats , do it , it's amazing it's got decks who can lower just above the car it's a hell of a job to ride them all out.

Lar,
which editing software are you using :>))

Maybe I can help you with the leveling of your horizons. I know I had a tough time at first.

Hey Gale. Thanks for the input, I think I must just be unaware while shooting. I really need to "focus" on the horizon when I shoot. I use PS7, but I really need to get it right the first time, ie, film. I have noticed lately I've had issues with some pic's not level, I just need to stop look and click. Thanks for your help and intrest in others, that says alot for your character Gale.

Hi Lar -

I like the sunset shot a lot, and as others have said, a bit of clockwise rotation would make it even better.

I like the dark bands under the sun which, combined with the dark waves in the foreground, initially tricked my eye into thinking that the sun was somehow splitting the surface of the water.

Lar,

Very good. That is a gorgeous image. One of the ones I really loved when I saw it.

I try to get my horizons straight also, however sometime I think of it after the fact because I am so envolved in the site I am seeing . :>)))

When I shoot I get very excited at a vision oor view of something that straight seem to come last to my mind. Not that I know I can straighten it later. :>)))

Thank You for your nice compliment.

Yes I love helping where I can.
