It looks like some sort of Photoshop trickery, but this is exactly how it looked. This is Princess Cruises Island Princess, plowing into thick fog along the Inside Passage off Canada back in 2006. No horizon, no sky, no frame of reference. Thank goodness for radar. I suppose the unpleasant recent news about the disabled Carnival ship got me to thinking about my cruise ship photos. Happily, nothing went wrong with the ship on this excursion.
I was driving today in the oppressive heat, and for some unknown reason it occurred to me to try a single exposure HDR from one of the night images I took in Puerto Rico a couple of years ago. This is strange because I don’t recall thinking about these at all for a couple of years. Does this sort of thing happen to anybody else? A sudden idea about a certain photo or photo in your archives? Anyhow, this is the Celebrity Cruises Celebrity Solstice, docked at Old Puerto Rico. My wife and I were on the ship next door, so to speak. The Solstice was lit up like a city, and I thought it was visually attractive. Having no tripod, I had to crank up the ISO and brace on a handrail if I recall correctly.
