One of many cruise ships docking in Nassau. It's always amazed me how the captains can maneuver these behemoths in tight quarters. I didn't see a tugboat near this one as it used just its bow and stern thrusters to inch toward the dock. And to think, I have trouble parallel parking! Adjusted curves, saturated +20, sharpened 170/0.5/0.

The color saturation you boosted it too looks really great. It still is very crisp and natural but just has such an electric punch. I really like strong colors when done well like this. The angles here are really good with your point of view. The eye is lead right across, seeing all the concrete textures and all the paint right to the ship which sits set at another angle. It looks so large and dominant in the back there. The water textures and color looks great, too. Nicely photographed and worked. It's amazing how well these ships can maneuver with the thrusters and engine pods.

Great shot, Robert. The cruise liner looks very impressive. Beautiful colours, which you have brought out nicely with the extra saturation. Excellent POV - along the dockside. Well captured. Interesting note.

Nice photo Robert! I like the way the colours painted on the sea wall, leads the eye in at the bottom, and take you to the ship. Perfect timing to include the tree on the right too. Nice colours and sharp. Just a pity about that rope! Nothing p/shop couldn't sort out though, well done!

lol I like the note.
I find it very amazing too how the captain's so precise to park those huge ships at the dock, it's only a matter of a few meters.
This is a great photo Robert, very clear, and with this excellent POV we can see how big those ships are.
