Well well! This is the nicest shot i ever made. And it sure aint my fault! Perhaps a bit dark, but give it a shot. Lucky for me, the lights on the helideck was on, and there was some light at the docks.
Eager as a beaver i started to shoot 07:50, no lights. But some of the ships i was too shoot left just after(or before) i shot them, so.. Thats the reason for pretty dark pictures.

This ship i really like! Oozes of power, flexibility, and.. I dont know whatnot.

Actually i was(am) afraid it will be kicked out because of the darkness. Yes, the ambience is cool! Not difficult to get nice shots with that surroundings!

That's a very cool shot of the ship, in it's harbour surrounding and all that, very atmospheric !

Yeah, i like pictures that is a little "off", but thats me. Man, stavanger was nice. I am going to school again this fall, and petroleum-engineer is one of the options, a study in stavanger.

I'd go along with that, good photo. It sometimes pays to try something before or after the normal daylight hours.
