Jeepers. People pay to ride on one of those. Why not shack up in a tiny hotel somewhere in downtown Manhattan? Lots and Lots more opportunities/choices for dining, movies, live entertainment, museums, shopping, everything. A hypercrowded city on the seas. A bedroom the size of a bathroom, less that half what you'd get at a modestly-priced hotel/motel. PAY to be a captive consumer. NOT for me.

Oh, and by the way, impressive display of photo-skill.
The other problem with that kind of "vacation" is that when ashore, you are always in a hurry and you have not time to explore the local experience. Besides, you are not really given the chance to do so. There is pre-defined set of actions for you to do and a pre-defined set of places for you to visit. In most cases it looks like a herd with a shepherd. The passenger capacity of this very ship is roughly 3600 persons, which makes it a small floating city.

Thanks ! Live view and electronic level were very useful when shooting this panorama hand-held.

I was shooting from another pier / jetty. I found a spot there, which roughly coincided with the centre of the ship and made a couple of test shots. I figured out that shooting in landscape orientation would cause too much distortion during processing, so I switched to portrait orientation. Out of five shots the thrid one, i.e. the central one was meant to be roughly in line with the central section of the ship. Two previous shots and two next shots were done to ensure a more or less equal overlapping areas. With ships it is quite easy, because there are many details, that you can use as control points. Electronic level was very useful to avoid differences in tilt and rotation between the images. And I was actually standing tall

A few from today's outing....








On this last one, it's cropped to about 2000 pixels wide, it's one of those, "Have a K-3 or go home" shots. Wolf on a moose carcass from 500 meters away.

I went to a local park today and ran into a deer. As I was talking to the deer I showed her some shots of Rupert and asked what she though of squirrels. The first shot is her reply. Then I asked her to strike a nice dignified pose. That is the second shot. Then I saw some picnic tables (Shot #3) and talked to them a bit. We were all wondering the same thing. When the heck is spring coming.

Nice shots, Norm. Sharp and story-telling.

Here's an experimental shot taken with a Raynox 2.5X macro filter on a 200mm SMCA mounted on a K3. First image is the entire frame, second is a crop from the first of the "UM" from "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and finally a shot of the rig. The Raynox is an excellent quality achromatic close-up filter. JPGs as out of the card, no PP except for inversion and cropping the second image.

The lenses in use today were the A-400 with the 1.7 (no keepers) the A-400 with the 1.4, a few keepers, and the DA*60-250 with the 1.4 TC, for the wolf images... the DA*60-250 and 1.4 TC for the bird feeder images, and the F 70-210 for the other squirrel and Boreal Chickadee.

Nice penny! I love my Raynox DCR-250 also, but haven't used it too much on my K-3.

I tried for the first time some low key in a little studio. I was curious how many details are in that dark shot, so +4.5 stops in LR.
