View from Cuxhaven towards the busy waterway at the entrance of Elbe river which leads to huge port of Hamburg about 100 km further east.
MSC Krystal is a typical modern container cargo ship. She was built in 2008 in South Korea and sails under flag of Panama.

A very cool shot and yes, the presence of the small speed boats really give a sense of scale and perspective. A good use camparision of the Rabbit and turtle. The speed boat may be fast but not for long distance. The turtle will win :) And for the size of things, it's Gozilla versus lizards :)

Good use of those jet skis to show how big the ship is. Good capture with good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.

A very impressive container ship and a fine picture with these three boats in different sizes.

Smart choice of a high shutter speed to avoid motion blur of the fast moving yellow jet skis. Good colour and the bg cargo ship is certainly packed to the gunwales with container boxes! The smaller red pilot ship at left heightens the depth. Tfs!

I'm a big fan of such subjects.
we should be seeing more of these on TE but for some reason many people just aren't attracted to them...great to see you post this one.
and the two 'rabbits' in the fg add scale, depth perception and color - a fine addition for the 'turtle'
a fun photo that was well put together

I like this scene very much. Your composition is minimal and effective, the horizon, the cargo ship and the two small vessels have been placed in the frame superbly. The colours are lovely and rewarding, the texture of the sea great. I like the interaction of the three vessels and the sense of movement and anticipation your photo conveys. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
