It's like a Rembrandt of art at its finest. This photographic image by Emdee is a once in a lifetime shot. Everything is perfect and can never be reproduced no matter how much digital manipulation is tried. A masterpiece.

This is special... I keep returning to have one last look. Time after time.....

One of the most stunning images of a ship I have ever seen! Thank you!

WHen I first saw her as Betsy Ross, the funnel did look somewhat large, but one got used to it and it actually wasn't really that large as some photo's depict. Note, her funnel had not changed in height when I sailed in her.
person
Hello Clive
Although it was thought by some folk that her funnel was oversized, spoiling her appearance somewhat, I agree with your sentiments completely.
I remember her as always looking very smart
Thanks for your kind remarks

Emdee, As you well know, Leda was held in great affection here in the UK. She was, as everyone can see, a fine, handsome and purposeful-looking ship. Your splendid photos do her more than justice. The three-quareters bow view is a fine portrait but these two pictures of her sailing away have a remarkable and very special quality about them.
person
Hi folks
I am quite amazed and humbled by the interest show in the photographs of Leda. I feel quite overwelmed by your kind remarks.
I can only say a very big thank you to everyone who has shown interest and responded to my posts

Looks like a painting. What a quality.

Incredible shot. I sailed on her as Betsy Ross on a local South African cruise. Ship was palgued with problems, delays and cancelled cruises. She departed our shores earlier than planned.
