Ginnie Hart: What a perfect way to espress this moment of oneness, Jojo!!! Merci.
Very nice boat...Yes, Marjoline is the most attractive, normal, good day, thank you for your cuckoos...kiss...
Ginnie Hart: Make that plural, Pierrot: very nice BOATS! smile Kinda like your line-up of girls today. grin
Very appropriate cropping of this photo, and great choice sepia. But please tell more of the story about this ship!
Ginnie Hart: There are 5 tall ships here parked at the dock in Amsterdam for Sail 2010, Patrushka. 3 are Russian, one is Polish and one is Dutch. When you see them from bow end like this, they mesh together as though they are one ship. That's what amazed me about this view. Thanks.
That's a heck of a lot of mastssmile
Ginnie Hart: More than I can count, Bill! smile
Love the editing you've done Ginnie ! Enjoy your weekend !
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Ferdi. Thank you...and you, too. smile

Impressive all the veils, beautiful framing and aspect ratio. Nice day Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: If all the sails had been unfurled, it probably wouldn't have had the same effect, Tede, right? Merci.

Loving the treatment Musketeer, but also the choppy water gives great texture too..smile Happy Weekend
Ginnie Hart: Thank you loads, Musketeer. It was such a perfect day in every way! Thanks. Happy weekend to you, too.
an odd crop that works very well here... smile

Amazing sight Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It actually really was, Tony! Thank you.
Very clever shot Ginnie, you were lucky to find that viewpoint and realize the effect you could get.
Ginnie Hart: It wasn't until later that I really SAW this, Sheila. You know how that is. It was much more impressive to me than the side view. Thanks.

This is one neat capture Ginnie. We all are one...
Ginnie Hart: All for one and one for all...also came to mind, Frida. Yes, indeed! Thanks.
I love the way you have cropped this and the mass of sails.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir. It's not something we see very often, for sure.
That is an amazing shot. You really had to find the right place to stand for this one.
Ginnie Hart: We were on the free ferry going across the IJ river, Mary, when I saw this. I felt very lucky to be there that day. Thanks.
i am so pleased for the people who are on that ship that all those sails are not on just one ship, it would take them ages to get all the sails up, great pov
Ginnie Hart: HA! You're so right, Derek. One too many sails for anyone, for sure! Thank you kindly.
Excellent rendering, your sepia & the narrow crop are so timelessly good.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Karine. smile

You caught them well. The pov also makes them look really tall - I like that and the narrow vertical crop.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Louis. Have a great weekend, you lucky stiff! grin

Hey Grannie :d....been a while. Glad to be back to see you still posting.... Like the vintagish look of it and as always your choice of toning. wink

best wishes to Chris.
Ginnie Hart: Good to see you again, NaCha, as always! Hope you're hanging in there and are up to no good. grin Thank you.
Beautiful photo! It looks so vintage full of history!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Charles. I'm sure there's a LOT of history tied up in those 5 ships!
Well spotted, makes for a very complex ship!
Ginnie Hart: That's what I thought, Nigel. Thanks.

that's cool, i wasn't envying the sailor that had to climb that complicated rigging lol love it!! and your comment on my site made me lol smile
Ginnie Hart: Maybe 5 different sailors climb up their separate riggings and then talk to each other up there...in Russian, Polish and Dutch?! I'd love to see it. smile Thanks, Elaine.
Now that is what you call a mast with crosspieces, it really suits this format Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I'd love to go back and count them all, Brian, if they were still there (they're not, of course). Thanks.

Oh, this is lovely Ginnie. If it weren't for the immense crowds I would definitely go and see this for myself.
Ginnie Hart: Astrid isn't a crowd person either, Scarlet, so I understand. However, she IS a tall-ship person and that won over the decision to go or not. Maybe 5 years from now you'll be able to go? Thanks.
What a fantastic jumble of rigging! Wonderful image. (:o)
Ginnie Hart: It was definitely fun to see, Roz. smile Thanks.

So cool with them lined up like that so many mast and ropes all merging together
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, JJ. It was one time I was glad the sails were unfurled. Thanks.

A well chosen format for the tall ship - and neat processing too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, George. Seeing all 5 of them meshed together as one was so awesome.
a fine moment to shoot Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Wim. I guess that would make a very complicated etching???!

Ginnie Hart: It was awesome, Rob. It was the one time I was glad the sails were NOT unfurled. Thank you.

That is an amazing ship you captured here...
Ginnie Hart: 5 ships all merged together as one, Sidney, which is what made it seem so awesome to me. Thanks.
Now that's what I call having all your ducks...I mean, ships in a row, Ginnie. Extraordinary shot.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Beverly. You got it! smile Thanks.
That is an OH WOW! shot`.
Ginnie Hart: And you're a sweetheart, Michael! Thank you.
Amazing viewpoint Ginnie. You don't get the opportunity to see them lined up like that very often. lucky you and well captured
