Sopot is a seaside town in Eastern Pomerania on the southern coast of the Baltic Sea in northern Poland, with a population of approximately 40,000.
Sopot is a city with powiat (county) status, in the Pomeranian Voivodeship. Until 1999 it was part of the Gdañsk Voivodeship. It lies between the larger cities of Gdansk to the southeast and Gdynia to the northwest. The three cities together make up the metropolitan agglomeration of the Trójmiasto (Tri-City).
Sopot is a major health-spa and tourist resort destination. It has the longest wooden pier in Europe, at 515.5 metres, stretching out into the Bay of Gdañsk. The city is also famous for its Sopot International Song Festival, the largest such event in Europe after the Eurovision Song Contest. Among its other attractions is a fountain of bromide spring water, known as the "inhalation mushroom".

This is a very fine photo. The clouds look almost as nice as the old style boat and I like the diagonal composition very much. The colours and sharpness are exceptionally good.

A pier half a kilometre long? Wow, that is an impressive record indeed. This is a splendid capture of this old tall ship, a vessel that still today capturesthe imagination and camera of anybody who passes. Really nicely composed to capture the ship so well and the wooden deck leading off into the distance.

From your well chosen POV we get a splendid view of this wonderful ship. It's colours look most attractive in the sunlight. The sky makes a great backdrop too, especially those white clouds in contrast with the grey part on top.
Best regards, Paul

What a fine presentation in brilliant rich tones, contrast and the majestic looking galleon and the high masts nicely framed. You are smart technically spot on with the composition while we get to enjoy the full view of the vista, its depth and perspective.The mouth watering sky & clouds clinch the shot so brilliantly. You grabbed the moment beautifully Congrats, TFS
