    These are a couple of old steamships that are still cruising around Lake Muskoka in Ontario Canada.

  2. Which lens?

    I used to have a picture of one of the sister ships, The Waome, but I can't find the pics. I took them about twenty years ago with my Nikonos down in sixty feet of water. Haze like you wouldn't believe.

    Now thats a picture I'd like to see. These ships are in great shape for their age.

    I used the Tamron 28-75 for those.
     
  4. Very sharp! In particular #2...Perfectly exposed...

    Cheers

    Thanks Ted.
     
  6. I especially enjoyed #2 with the reflection of the ships.
     
  7. very very nice, you have that 300 dialed in right. at first glance #2 looked like a split screen view.

    Thanks Tom, I shot these with the D50, Tamron 28-75. I'm using this combo as my Point & Shoot set up. It's easier to carry while I'm on the road than the D300.
     
  9. Very nice. Like #2 best.

    Thanks Alex.

    Thanks Ed

    Thanks Roger

    Thanks Elliot. The Segwun (small steamship) was built in 1887 and is the oldest steamship in North America. The Wenonah II was built in 1907. Both these ships are kept in great shape. It's nice to see them still working.
