  9. That is a nice photograph. I like the light, the atmosphere, the background - everything. Lovely!

    Bit of history there too, I believe.
     
  10. Wonderful lighting, Harry. And it looks like a ship--not like those modern monstrosities. Very nicely done.
     
  11. Thanks Ron, yes when she was MV STOCKHOLM she had a collision with SS ANDREA DORIA in 1956 off the coast of Nantucket resulting in SS ANDREA DORIA sinking.

  12. Thanks Nick, totally agree modern cruise ships look like a barge with a block of flats built on them......no lines at all.
     
  13. Really an excellent image. Well done.
     
  14. Great shot. Quite an odd stern at the waterline.
     
  15. Thanks Dan.
     
  16. Thanks NaptownSailor, yes the sponson was added to improve her sea keeping capabilities.
     
  17. Excellent tonal qualities. The old girl does look a wee bit tired..
