    Actually, less people would see them there. Spare a thought for the rest of the internet who can't view the gallery.
    (and if you can only post 850pix wide there, you may as well shoot a phone-camera. If it's been shot at LF quality then it's worth viewing at LF quality).

    I'm very impressed that you could get 1-second exposures and keep the ship that sharp. Did you tie-down your tripod so that it rocked along with the ship and didn't vibrate?

    Yes, how did you do this?

    I really liked this set of photos! Great work there is such a feeling of energy and motion in those images.

    I would also guess that you tied down your tripod? Or is it the effect that a larger ship doesn't seem to rock as much?

    I'm going on the fact that the horizons are motion-blurry, it's not just the waves. So the camera must have been very well locked to the ship which both rocked together.

    I was contemplating if it might have been a 35mm with an IS/VR/VC lens, but it can't because then the horizon would have been sharp but the ship blurry (that, and I know he shoots LF).

    all those digital shots are on a 5D mk2 with a 24mm f1.4 LII lens. & 3 stop GND filter

    The camera was on a really cheap shitty tripod. I just set it up and held the tripod as firmly as I could with my hands, pushing 'down' into the deck. I was really surprised how sharp they came out especially the ones where I am on the monkey island (top deck) with 50 knots of wind slamming me. I didn't expect them to work. The one of the water rushing over that gate towards the camera I nearly lost the camera. It came at me harder than expected and nearly knocked me and the camera over. It was a bit blurry because in the I lost my footing in the last part of the exposure (it was really rough) but I still liked how it came out. it was too dangerous to stay there much longer

    Beautiful pictures, but this site is not for digital photography, my friend. Film only, please.
