Best Regards

Yep tvtech. I noticed sharper images coming from our friend in the North. Some new equipment no doubt! How nice you can take shots from the bridge. We are not allowed to do that in New York.

Holding my horses here...

I (we) here know you purchased a new lens a while back. Pin sharp....and now getting better with ever shot.

Constructive chirps only from me.

You take some of the very best Photo's of ships I have ever seen. Keep going and keep getting better.

Best Regards,

Hold your horses everyone.
I dont think i make any better photos by any of the photographers onboard. Perhaps i have the privilege to live and work in Norway, where the conditions are good. I dont know. But thanks!

Hey Thomas. Brilliant shot again.

As a famous golfer once said: "The more I practice..the luckier I get" I believe it was Gary Player who uttered these famous words.

Fantastic photo's by you always here Thomas.

Life's not fair!!!! (Ok, nobody said it would be...) But while I'm exploring the outer limits of boredom here at Hamburg for days now (the finest weather and all ships of interest arriving and/or departing at night) you're pulling one excellent photo after another out of your hat. It's pathetic!:-))

Thanks a lot, my pleasure. She is to leving in ten minutes, in fine weather.

Very best regards: Tomas
