Wow, I am liking my office job even more now! Great photo!

A great shot and work...

Excellent and interesting picture depicting life at sea, from a vantage point that most of us will never have.

The solution is so simple: Frans posted an interesting storm photo. Even though it technically may not meet all the requirements, why not use common sense and have room to make exceptions, i.e. not to delete it.
This also could have avoided this whole useless discussion here. Just common sense!
Jens Boldt on Sep 19, 2015 19:42 (3 years ago)
To whom it may concern...

At the time we have no "Category side standards" for storm pics, so normally photos in this specific category would have to be treated according to "Site standards for all photos". As Derek said, "Damned if we do (delete the photo), damned if we don't..."

Our fellow member David Asprey (and our techie Henrik, too) have put a lot of time and hard work to set up a board of consultations and review of site standards. All members are welcome to discuss the current site standards there, propose changes, propose amendments, set up new standards, drop others.

Maybe it would be more constructive to propose some standards for storm pics on the board than to spam the comment section with worries and complaints.

Last but not least: Frans, that's a great photo.

Site standard 5 shouldn't apply to storm pics. How many pictures in this category have part of the ship obscured by high waves. If you applied this standard, then most would have to be deleted.
DEREK SANDS on Sep 19, 2015 16:31 (3 years ago)
Dammed if we do delete, and dammed if we don't.

All solutions to the webmasters on a postcard please!

becky on Sep 19, 2015 14:31 (3 years ago)
960 plus hits and we are discussing deleting? Am I missing something?
Tomas Østberg- Jacobsen on Sep 19, 2015 09:49 (3 years ago)
This is what storm pics is all about.
Patrick Hill on Sep 19, 2015 08:59 (3 years ago)
But the photo is in Storm pics category - surely this group and Ships Deck can be exempt from the 'whole ship' rule...
Jim McQuarrie on Sep 19, 2015 08:51 (3 years ago)
Hi Pilot Frans-If you go to support then site standards-
5. Full ships only. Foreground obstructions must not restrict the view of the ship. For all views, bows or sterns must not be cropped off. I've had some deleted
eptcpt on Sep 19, 2015 07:44 (3 years ago)
Even if the administrator 'delete' me a big sailing cruise vessel for a few meters of masts not shown in the picture i have to admitt that the shot is incredible.

simonwp on Sep 19, 2015 07:41 (3 years ago)
So much more interesting than the usual standard 3/4 bow shots we all post.
simonwp on Sep 19, 2015 07:39 (3 years ago)
Excellent shot, it would be a travesty if this shot was deleted.
Captain Carlitos on Sep 19, 2015 06:35 (3 years ago)
M. K. once more privileges enjoyed by some members of this web, of course, they are not guilty, nothing more and nothing less, are your administrators who allow this is demonstrated. Come on, I picture and hang it takes 2h to be hung. I insist that the author is not to blame.
maripaul on Sep 19, 2015 06:33 (3 years ago)
M.K. Certainly should be an exception permitted under such conditions: In the air under very turbulent conditions, captured main subject on wing of the bridge. This is a very exceptional photograph and deserves recognition as such. Maybe it rates a new subject title "Balls!"
maripaul on Sep 19, 2015 02:27 (3 years ago)
Hey tonker -"Balls cried the Queen, if I had a pair I'd be King!"
maripaul on Sep 19, 2015 02:24 (3 years ago)
That is one great shot! Please keep it up.

Wish that Pilot Helicopters around the world would take similar photos perhaps Columbia River bar in Oregon, Prince Rupert British Columbia, New York harbor approaches, San Juan Puerto Rico, Gijon Spain, Lisbon Portugal, Norwegian ports, and many of the Asian ports with helicopter pilot service.
tonker on Sep 19, 2015 02:23 (3 years ago)
Excellent photo, that looks like a job that requires big balls, bigger than I have, haha!
Evgeniy . on Sep 18, 2015 19:49 (3 years ago)
Very interesting view. Thanks for posting.
