In October 2012, we took an 11-day Mediterranean cruise onboard the elegant ship of Celebrity Equinox. The cruise was a round trip from Civitavecchia, a port city outside Rome. We arrived in Rome two days earlier. Visited Umbrian hill town Orvieto first, then reached Civitavecchia to embark the ship. The cruise journey visited three countries: three ports of call in Greece (Santorini, Athens, and Mykonos); two ports of call in Turkey (Istanbul and Kusadasi); one port of call in Italy (Naples). For post-cruise, we stayed in Rome for extra two days.
The entire trip mixed with natural sceneries, vibrant cities, and ancient ruins which the travel experiences I preferred. I am by no means a photographer, but I can tell, it is more favorable for photography in this time of the year. Compare to summer’s bright sun, the light is softer. Even better, the colorful clouds are appeared in the skies more often.
This picture was taken while Equinox docked in Istanbul in an early morning.

your POV shows the symmetry of this ship very well. Also the time this photo was taken is good: Everything is enlightened, so the ship sparkles in Yellow and Blue. Yellow and blue are also the colors of the sky in the background. So everything fits together perfectly. The frame makes it look like a postcard.

Nos deux photos se suivent et ne se ressemblent pas.Tu étais tournée vers d'intérieur et moi vers l'extérieur. Ta technique est impeccable et ton sujet bien joli.

I like the symmetry and quality of this shot and the fact that thereare no tourists to see.
It`s a good exposure with good colors and contrast and fine details to view.

Bella ripresa ricca di colore e che lascia stupiti per l'assoluta mancanza di passeggeri.
Hai colto una bella luce e ne hai approfittato per riprendere un soggetto insolito che però si è dimostrato molto valido, considerando l'ottimo risultato che hai ottenuto.
Non posso che complimentarmi con te.
Ciao e buona serata

Perfect symmetry too
Bravo, have a nice day

We are thankful you are not on a Carnival cruise. Your sunset view of the pool area looks like my kind of place to relax, especially when not crowded, and the Equinox is obviously more elaborate than the Celebrity ship cruise I ventured on a few years ago to Alaska.
Congratulations on a warm lit and golden vision,
PS: You are a photographer like all our friends on Trekearth. And I am jealous also of not cruising now.

Awesome capture of the blue hour especially onboard this cruise ship. I envy you, I wish I don't get seasick, I would love to take a cruise from Vancouver to Alaska. Great lighting and nice details in spite of wide open lens. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
