Not because of the ship but because of the picture. With the low sun behind her she is heading for Rotterdam. Starting off with 1/3 underexposure and then using the computer to increase the contrast to make the skies look darker, this is what I got. Any comments are welcome whether this is to be considered over-enhanced or not.

Allan, both the camera and the lense involved have already been replaced. Out of necessity because all our equipment was stolen in Italy.

it does show up a few dust spots on the sensor - time for a clean me thinks

Thanks Cody, we just call it a polarizer. That it is circular seems to be the only option...and no I did not use one this time, but I should make more use of the one I have.

Hi Pieter, CPL is short for circular polarising filter. :)
pieter melissen on Oct 31, 2015 14:40 (3 years ago)
Hi Cody et al) thanks for the comments) What is a CPL? (Wiki gave Communist Party of Lithuania but that was surely not what you meant)
Any I did not reduce the noise, will think of it in future.
And finally nice to have a discussion about photography rather than of ships.....

Nice one, Pieter! It doesn't look over-enhanced to me. At first glance it just looks like you've 'shot to the right' and used a CPL. Kind regards, Cody.

You could turn up noise to get rid of pixels on full screen-Like!
victor radio74 on Oct 31, 2015 10:59 (3 years ago)
A great result,in my opinion,cheers!
pieter melissen on Oct 31, 2015 07:15 (3 years ago)

Pier Master on Oct 30, 2015 16:38 (3 years ago)
Looks OK to me Pieter.
