I took this shot from a ferry going to Fjäderholmarna.
Both the ship and the ferry were going rather quickly in opposite directions, so I did not have a very good chance to make several shots. I did, of course, but this is the only one which is not cropped and the whole ship can be seen. It's a pity that its full sails can't be seen, but I guess every ship approaches the Slussen harbour with sails off.

This is a majestic ship which you were lucky to meet on a beautiful summer day. The ropes from the masts make a very fine pattern against the blue sky.

What a great object! Incredible sharpness - the lines looka like a spider web - fantastic sky - the colour goes from dark blue to light blue - great picture!

you had only some seconds to take this photo, and i think it was with a very good result. Fantastic colours,sharpness and compo. Even if we don´t see the sails, the boat looks very impressive. Maybe we will see some photos from Fjäderholmarna later ?

Well seen, the view is beautiful, great colours and a good composition. The lighting is well done.

You forgot to mention in the intro that cruising on this lovely lady will deprive your wallet of USD 1.000 to 3.000 - per day!
Here you capture the vessel in the best light, rendering great colours and sharp fine details...
This is a fair composition, considering you didn't have much choice when it came to point of view!

Hi Elena Su.
You have framed this beauty really well. So sharp and well exposed white boat. The perspective is stunning and the sky is just brilliant. Well done and thanks for sharing. Warmest regards.

It is an ellegant sailing ship but not too big. The luxury inside it may be taken in consideration. So many hatches in the hull. A good weekend to you. Warm regards. Tomi
