I have just one complaint about this image. The resolution isn't high enough for me to use it as a desktop background!! *Grumble grumble*
On a serious note though, Great work as always! :)

Tommy, I found the Picture is Perfect there's nothing wrong with the angle or Lense, See I also having Problem taking Pictures of VLCC came to Gadani for Demolition, I also face the same difficulty to capture the whole ship coz its too lengthy to fit in normal digital camera .. has to move here-n-there to find the appropriate angle to capture the ship completely.

Anyways ... your work is so Good to be decline ..

Sandygates thk for the defence. :) I am ok with Pieter statement.
Pieter, I like the innocent of your (2nd) question. If the helicopter is at that height and that low an angle we will all be swimming. Sometime I do take a boat out to sea to photograph my clients' vessels when they don't have the budget to charter a helicopter. So while at sea, I go crazy shooting all the vessels that we see en-route to the actual vessel that I was to photograph.

During loading/discharging ullages are normally taken by tank radar, however when topping off an MMC type hand gauge is used to determine exact ullages as tank radar systems aren't trusted to be that accurate. Similarly, when tanks are being stripped it is still common for the Pumpman or an AB to use a brass diprod to check the depth of sludge, in conjunction with a tank gauge.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this shot (IMHO) and the criticism of it is (again IMHO) nit-picking and completely unwarranted and
pieter melissen on Nov 24, 2013 17:55 (5 years ago)
Tommy, couldn't you have asked your heli pilot to take some distance or is this a sealevel shot?
sandygates on Nov 24, 2013 17:28 (5 years ago)
Ullage measurement is usually done by radar-based systems these days.
Tommy Chia on Nov 24, 2013 17:27 (5 years ago)
Pieter, this vessel is at 333 meters, normal lens would not have fitted her into frame. Only possible with super wide lenses. FYI; the perspective had already being corrected too therefore the vertical lines are now straight.
pieter melissen on Nov 24, 2013 16:21 (5 years ago)
sometimes wide angle lenses produce distorted results, this is an example.
MattyBoy on Nov 24, 2013 16:07 (5 years ago)
Are there sensors on board to measure capacity or is it still done with a 'dipstick' ?
