Yippee! That old adage "if you don't succeed, try again!" sure does work.
(On my personal challenge number 469 that is!)
Thank you all for your votes.
Yes, I wanted to drop that horizon but since the challenge was 'water', well, I went for more water...

Stunning shot here. Combining this moody landscape with a fortress of war like this is so contrasting and yet the mist spells doom. Love it. Fav

Awesome. I favoured it.

Two month later after its departure from the US I could see her in Hong Kong.

Congratulations Alice! I think to get such a large ship placed so perfectly must have required connections in high places.

Great photo- I've always been a big sucker for fog.

Congratulations Alice, for the long deserved ribbon, but even more so for this lovely complete image. The combination of the classic view and this awesome ship slipping into the fog make for a truly great image.

Congrats on your first ribbon! Very eerie with the mist - almost like a 20th Century ghost ship.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Congratulations!!!

Really like how the mist at the waterline gives it a very ghostly look, appropriate for the subject IMO. I'd be curious to see this in grayscale, without the bright blue bit of sky ... perhaps even darkening it -- moving in the direction of the noir look. With a vertical crop I can see it as a WW II movie poster ...

How wonderfully ghost like this is.

Great stuff.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/22/2011 01:58:31 PM
The ship, bridge, mist combination look great, but I think I would have cropped some of the water out (I know the water was the subject). A crop from the left and bottom bringing the horizon lower in the shot with a bit more headroom for the top of the bridge would have been perfect.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/22/2011 08:14:18 AM
I love the mist! And that boat looks awesome! I wonder what would happen is you drop that horizon line to the lower third? Hmm...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/21/2011 08:59:07 AM
Awesome. Love the fog. And your composition emphasizes the expanse of sea.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/17/2011 11:52:51 AM
An iconic image. Good capture of the moment. I might have considered cropping more of the foreground water.

10/17/2011 09:40:47 AM
Wow. I love the fog in this shot. Makes the boat feel mysterious and eerie

Cool shot! gives a real sense of the ship's size. and the bridge too.
