The Tall Ships Race, again...

This beautiful sailing ship is the Sørlandet, nicely decorated with flags. It is a Norwegian steel three-masted barque of 577 gross tons, built in 1927.

Apparently during the race the Sørlandet's crew rescued some people who were floating in a raft after abandoning their sinking sailing yacht, read more here.

Now, what really caught my eye that day, were the many women saylors.

PP: added some more light on the saylors (as the sun was already low on the right). Downsized in 4 steps, sharpened.

De boeg mag er zijn frank (nice bow), that was bang on the target.

I like the angle you have chosen to take this picture. We can really see the details and complexity of the three masts. TFS.

*whispers quietly: we want to see more photos of women sailors. ;)

This is a nice shot Frank. You could crop in from the left to the first brick before the solid concrete to eliminate the unnecessary people on the left.

Very nice picture. I wouldn't want to be the one in charge of putting up the flags. Nice perspective. Good idea to put those two "saylorettes" in the foreground.

De mooie boot. Mooie zeelieden. Mooie hoek en punt van overzicht. You are lucky to have tall ship races. Thos boat are so nice. « Now, what really caught my eye that day, were the many women saylors. » :: naturally! Good picture Frank.

wow, those ships are realy incredible,and so mutch ropes,i would get caught in it!!

the people next to and in front of the ship are good to make the scale clear.
i think they most look even beutifull when there sailing.

greetings kirsten

Nice shoot Frank. I like the boat and your composition!
Thank you for interesting notes.


Very nice POV quite good perspectif and ethereal sky-colors. In the compo I had prefered a litlle bit more view to the right. For the target you got two competitive bows there I suspect you that this was intentional. Am I right ?

Zeer mooi schip, Frank, mooi in beeld gebracht met als voorgrond, deze vastberaden matrozessen, mooi gedaan !

I love ships and boats of all descriptions, so I am glad to see your new photo. This is great and the lighting is really good showing up the complexity of the rigging against the pale evening sky. The sharpness is excellent in this shot and the low light gives an almost silhouette like appearance to the image. Great shot.

There is something about a tall ship that is compelling. You did a great job capturing the beauty of this one. Well done.

rire la petite note...belle prise de vue de ce magnifique 3 mâts...l'équipage est bien maquillé ...rire...belle vue d'ensemble bien rendue dans l'action...bien vu ...amicalement BI

Very nice picture, Frank. A beautiful boat. And I like the contrast with the light on the sailboat.

Belle bouée ;°)
cette photo donne envie de faire de la voile ...

Impressive image of a very majestic vessel. Nice portrait frame, nicely composed and good detail.
Very well done!
