With 1927.7mm of focal length, Ginnie, I am thinking this boat is on the moon!

You have captured great drama here.
Ginnie Hart: That magical 1200 mm lens sometimes amazes me when it zooms out even further like that, Ray. It really WAS a dramatic sight.

Wow!! This looks like it was quite the storm! Great documentary shot!
Ginnie Hart: I've never seen anythin like it on our Merwede river, Steve. Thank you.
That is astonishing. A wonderful shot.
Ginnie Hart: Astonishing is a good word for the day, Michael. Thank you.

Oh, what a great image of an extraordinary day! At the moment it is snowing- heavily snowing!
Ginnie Hart: It really WAS an extraordinary day, Philine, for sure! No snow for us yet....but maybe?

Wow! This looks like a WWI picture
Ginnie Hart: Most interesting to think of that, Lisl, but a war zone does come to mind for how tempestuous it was!

You really have captured the drama of these weather conditions Ginnie. It looks mighty turbulent out there!
Ginnie Hart: You have seen this river, Chris, but NEVER like this. It was a first for me.
On dirait un bateau fantôme.
Ginnie Hart: Well said, Martine!
Impressionnante photo ..wouah..
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Claudine. Merci.

Oh my word! I bet that made for an exciting crossing. I like the edit; it looks like a scan from a very old newspaper.
Ginnie Hart: Astrid told us to take our glasses off before getting out of the car,
Alan. Actually, Nelson and I stayed in the car and SHE got out. But it was scary. I like the "old newspaper" thought!

I love this ghostly image of the boat, Ginnie. That was quite the storm and I have to salut these brave pilots to try to go to Rotterdam and try to be in time to exchange goods and make some money....
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid, but I have a feeling they wished they had stopped somewhere to let the storm pass. Was it worth it, I wonder, to continue???

That looks like shot from the film - The cruel sea.
Ginnie Hart: As I said to Chris, you've seen this river, Chad, and know it does NOT look like this. It was quite extraordinary that day!
wow, i love grain.. or i used to in film days... i used to work hard to try and make my photos grainy... even tho everyone said it was bad haha, those were the days, and this photo, wow!!! remind me to tell you about the time i was on a huge ferry that almost sunk, tho i don't know the code that those waves were!
Ginnie Hart: I'm not sure how I tweaked this, Elaine, but a lot of that "grain" is water spray. It really was that kind of day! A ferry that almost sunk? We were going to take a ferry across the river that day but, needless to say, it was NOT running! HA!
Un traitement qui donne un sentiment dramatique.
J'aime bien ;-)
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale. It was a dramatic day!
Dat ziet er inderdaad erg heftig uit !!
Ginnie Hart: I wonder how bad it was for you that day, Marjolein, where you live????
It's so grainy, Granny Ginnie! wink
How's that? ;p
Ginnie Hart: HA! Leave it to you, LC, to come up with that! smile
Wow! That's scary!
Ginnie Hart: It really was, Robin. I didn't even get out of the car but took this through the windshield!
I love that it appears a newspaper clipping. Excellent.
Ginnie Hart: You and Alan are on the same page, Mary. smile

The texture makes it great and dramatic (a bit worrying too).
Ginnie Hart: It was exactly that kind of day, Anne: worrying.

This looks like an old news film from 1953, when the dikes broke in Zeeland. Dramatic.
Ginnie Hart: I bet you heard about this day from family/friends, Louis? 66 semi-trucks flipped over, that's how windy it was!
In camera club parlance this would be classed as a 'Creative' image and for me it works very well.
Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, it probably wouldn't meet your judge's Blue Ribbon, Brian, but I'll take "creative." smile
The elaboration of this photo is decidedly dramatic, but perhaps it was already the situation.
Ginnie Hart: A little bit of both, Claudio. It really WAS that kind of a day, with water spraying everywhere.
Great shot, and interesting treatment, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: The image itself didn't need a lot of tweaking, Tom, but I did help it along. smile Thanks.
Crikey - pass the sick bag quick !
Ginnie Hart: You and a Facebook friend have had the same reaction, Martin. smile

Wonderful photo and a love your Ginnie treatment to the scene smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Cherry.
That is just SUPER COOL! You and Astrid and Frank win for the best Boat Fridays this week for sure! Maybe ever... smile
Ginnie Hart: Awww. How very kind and sweet, Elizabeth. Thank you.
that is quite some gale, Ginnie smile
Ginnie Hart: I can safely assume you've never experienced anything like it in all your visits to the Netherlands thus far, Ayush. Even Astrid said it was a first for her!
traitement extra!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
