That is one pretty lady. I like your POV and the tight framing. The layers of colors are simple but effective: blue water, predominantly white ship and then blue skies. Very nicely done, TFS.

A real getaway feeling, its only when you can get up close that you see how big this liner is. Well shot with eye catching decor rich in colour tone
that really clicks all the sense here. Good crisp image, a shot for posterity and the archives.

è incredibile fino a che punto possa arrivare la fantasia degli armatori per attrarre viaggiatori e lanciare messaggi pubblicitari sublimali.
Ovviamente è anche una splendida occasione per un fotografo attento come te che ne hai fatto subito un soggetto piacevole.
Una bella composizione ed un soggetto interessante tra colori piacevoli in una atmosfera che richiama l'allegria.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

very clever title, that made me smile. A beautiful point of view on this fine vessel too, the painting of the eye reminds me of the way the ancient boats of the Phoenicians and Egyptians would be painted, I think it was to ward off evil. I guess in the case of this fine pleasure ship though, its more to draw attention and good times! You composed this shot perfectly, it could be a scene from a holiday brochure!
All the best

A stunning composition with this beautiful and original ocean liner, which sports some nice paintings on the perimeter, giving the image a touch of sympathy and joy, I like the nice contrast of the blue sea and sky, with white ship.
Excellent brightness and very good focus.
Very good job.
Enjoy a happy weekend.
