Good framing using the rule of thirds & well composed leaving space at left for the huge boat to 'move' into. Terima kasih!

Like a photo from Scandinavia where they do have big ships that dwarf everything else. Nice inclusion of the pilot boat to provide sense of scale. Nice Baltic colors as well. Regards. Latiff.

Those large cruise ships are floating cities, with all possible service facilities...
A classic composition with fine details, the great light makes the colours pop!

A composition very simple but a beautiful image rich in details. I like too the contrast between the large boat and the small boat. a great prospect too with the mountains in the BG on the left.
Have a good evening,

Excellent capture, the white impressive boat on the blue sea and the other, small one. It must be a fascinating adventure to travel by this enormous boat... Well framed.

Excellent view of the mighty cruiser from the beautiful sunlight, and the small boat adds a great perspective towards this composition!

immagine molto bella in cui viene esaltata l'imponenza della nave da crociera.
Gradevole il secondo elemento che da l'idea delle proporzioni il tutto accompagnato da ottimi colori e luce,saluti maurizio

A fine presentation of the cruise boat in majestic style on the water, very well composed and with good light control to show sharp details of the starboard. A dream cruise that many will surely admire.

Great composition"big vs small".
Great POV and both ships are perfect place.Good contrast with the nice blue tones of the sky and the sea.

An excellent photo quality under the strong lighting conditions, displaying a vast array of clear details. The blue boat in the FG provides a good comparison of scale. The StarVirgo is really huge compared to StarGemini which we saw in Kuching.
ewanshamsudin (347) 2008-09-01 22:53
What a sharp shot of the Virgo. The lighting is good and as always, the accompanying write-up is informative.
Also, look at her at home here

Imagine my 3.25m-long inflatable by this giant!!
The smaller boat is for the perfectly-balanced disposition within the frame.
serp2000 (35094) 2008-09-05 5:38
Nice shot! Beatiful composed, good contrast between small boat and SuperStar Virgo! Very nice colours and details!

Hello Jusni, nice and interesting photo! Superb ship!

Seeing this ship this way reminded me of my tour of duty on board such a cruise ship before but smaller. At that time, 23 years ago, the ship I was assigned to was the 2nd biggest.
Seeing this ship this way also reminded me when I missed it. I was practically an illegal/fugitive in my own country because technically, a ship is like a country of its own. Once you are on board a liner, you are its citizen. The shipping agent had to "smuggle" me across the country to the next port of call and "slipped" me in :
To me, the other side and beyond photography, is memories of another day. Make it good.

Excellent sharpness and colours well communicated here. Great visual effect in the contrast of size between the ship and the boat.
Thanks for sharing,

The scale opposition is simply cool and it's the main interest of the compo. Eye-catching and striking. And you composed it well.
ekinokswest (2992) 2008-10-04 18:00
I like it you have captured the ship view from a good angle also it s important to include the little boat it brings more liveliness and makes it better in terms of having many objects
