It is hard to appreciate how huge a cruise ship is until you actually see one in person. I took this picture on Mein Schiff 4, a new cruise ship from TUI. Standing outside on the deck and looking up, it is almost as if you are standing outside an office building, or more appropriately large hotel. As I looked up and enjoyed the beautiful weather, I noticed that the curves of the ship blended well into the surroundings. I love when man-made objects harmonize with their surroundings.
Not much to say about the technique taking this picture. I had the aperture a bit wider than you normally would on a sunny day, but I did get bright colors and a crisp picture. I like the orderly nature of the curves of the ship deck in contrast to the chaotic nature of the cloud.
