!!*Photography* Challenge Group!! Happy Holidays :-)

This group is all about Themed Photography Challenges

Tall Ships (3 Masted)

This challenge closed over 5 years ago.

The Challenge

We had a similar challenge in this group about 2 years ago, but I thought ‘why not have another one, now that the Cutty Sark is fully restored’ (can’t wait to go and see her at Greenwich!)

To make it more interesting, let’s see whole ships, at least hull and 3 masts visible. Preferably the whole ship visible.

NOT just rigging
NOT just a sail/rope/bow/helm/any isolated part of a ship, however tall

As close to straight out of the camera as possible please. No composites at all. No superimposed images. This is the photography challenge group NOT the PhotoShop challenge group. Thanks!

WORK THAT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE A PHOTOGRAPH WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED, even if it originally started as a photograph!!


  1. as usual, please, no insects, arachnids or butterflies – thank you! (shouldn’t apply here, but…)
  2. also, nothing that requires a safe filter, nothing that you wouldn’t show to your grandma or to a 5-year-old (I shouldn’t have to say this for this subject, but we had some surprises…)
  3. no writing on the images, this is still a photography challenge group, keep images with added writing on them out of this, thank you (unless, of course, the writing is part of the subject)

Judging / Voting Criteria
