    They are amazing vessels to see in the harbours!! Very nicely shot, Polly.

  • Thanks Wendi. I don’t think Sydney is a very big harbour either by some standards which makes the ship look even bigger.

    WOW! Fantastic shot Polly. The CS shrinks Sydney a bit.

    Love how the light highlights the ship and the rest of the photo is in shadow…..

  • Thank you Thomas. Light was strange…as you can see by the sky in this shot and the next…the weather was a bit ‘iffy’ that day!

    What a wonderful capture, Polly. Love seeing this massive cruise shop docked, with Sydney skyscrapers in the background. Cannot even imagine being aboard a ship this size – let alone near enough to photograph. Love the light and shadows.

  • Thanks heaps Lori. It was quite an impressive sight. The biggest I’ve been on is The Pride of Bilbao, a P&O Ferry, from UK to Spain.
