i like the perspective here, it gives the impression however big the ship is, the small mooring is still the clear winner.

fab shot, one of my favorites, really.

Hi Carolyn! The Queen Mary is impressive in all the shots we've seen, but I love the composition in this one. Also like the side light and shadows. Nice shot.

Is that the huge boat that I've seen on tv? Seems like the rope is not too huge for a gigantic ship hehe. Happy Friday!

It looks like only that rope is holding the majestic ship to that what do you call it?

Your photo reminded me that I have yet to post my Hilton photos. It's been couple of weeks since I went there for dinner, and it seems like yesterday.

Wow! This is a fabulous shot. It's colors are so vivid and the perspective is terrific. It reminds me of those old vintage ocean liner posters. Thanks for stopping by at my skies.
