Bob, I tend to disaggree with you, the two other shots of the ship are not in any way close to the perfection that this shot in my eyes has. I don't need to see a remarkable ship to appreciate a good photograph. (probably my photographic background tells me that). And that Mr. Meshkov psoted three pictures of her is a another bonus because you will be hard pressed to find any more shots of her.

And yes I fully agree that one liners how good a shot is, without further explanation (apart from probably that the poster knows the photographer...) are not very productive.

Back in 2009 when this pic was posted, there was not such a fad for "nice shot”, “nice lighting", "nice composition" and "thanks for your compliment", etc, etc, ad nauseam comments on the site that would (and in my view are intended to) bump up the number of hits. It's a good photo but I don’t agree that it’s one of the most beautiful on the site by any stretch of the imagination. Nice scenery but an unremarkable ship. Also Mr Meshkov has diluted the number of hits he got on this pic by posting two others at the same time. Notwithstanding all that, they each clocked up more than 300 hits.
I do tend to agree with Capt Ted about the linkage of photos to/from other sites. It must be very frustrating for those who are into playing numbers game but don’t have such links.

Ted, this is a shot from 2009, from a time that I was not even aware of the existence of Shipspotting... I just posted my comment because of the quality of the shot and not to start a discussions about number of hits etc.

You e corr4ect Pieter,,problem,,the poster does not link his pictures to outside sites, which means he does not get many hits and therefore lower or none comments. Browse my bulker pictures,,some are really good shots,, and if I manage to get 50-100 hits after 30 days then it is tops, after one year not much more. !!!! That ths reason why I always was and are against outside linking and then outside hits counted as hits on this site. One can see it again and again,, pictures of certain posters and withhin 1 day 3-400 hits ,,no special ships though. giving peoples a advantage on this site which destroys the unity,,if that ever existed ..

Nobody ever commented on this shot, which I think is one of the most beautiful on the site. The colours are great and it is totally sharp, also when you enlarge to the max.
