The Mississippi Queen, docked for a quick stop at Paducah, KY. I took the blue saturation down quite a bit across the photograph in order to emphasize the boat more. I wanted the boat to really shine on a drab background. I wish we could upload larger files, though. It needs a bit more viewing area in the width.

long exposure doesn't add much here.

Nice capture...hosirzon seems to be a little askew? Or is it an illusion...?

I dunno, cropping this to a panorama doesn´t really seem to do this shot justice, it just simply lacks visual impact at this pixel size, I have a feeling this would look much better printed out in 60x30cm on somebodys wall but in this web resolution, the impact is lost... Nice shot though, don´t get me wrong.

In my experience its really difficult to get long exposures of anything floating on water, so this really rocks my boat - pun fully intended
