Thanks Jens!
jsyrovat, thanks for the kind words. The reason I don't post full res is because then, well...anyone could grab them and print them for what ever reason, including advertising and that wouldn't be fair to me. For viewing, I think the current res is enough :)

Hi Finn!
There are at least two more bridges around, where the cops don't seem to be at your heels within minutes. Unfortunately they're both in Europe: Brevik, Norway and a bridge above Kiel-Canal over here in Germany!
(Look for members ghazten and miraflores, lots of bridge-photos) :-D

And hello to Marek!
You didn't promise too much. It's an outstanding series of photos of cruise liners you posted here! Many thanks for sharing. :-)

Best regards,

Yes, that's right. I had a police in a minute behind me, when shooting a picture of ship in port of Zeebrugge (Belgium) from a public road ! After an hour checking my car, laptop, etc, they expelled me from the town of Zeebrugge without any obvious reason. Of course, I said thank you and returned five minutes later, after they disappeared.
@Marek, great picture, you should upload full res., it's a pity when you shoot with such good camera and upload only small size...

Awesome shots! Thanks a lot! If anybody took pictures from a bridge in my town (New York), you'd have cops with guns drawn inside of five minutes! (That is if you could get even close to a bridge!) You are LUCKY!
