This weeks random image was taken during a harbor tour of Charleston Harbor. Its of the Maersk Visby Cargo Ship with the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge as a back drop.
Maersk Visby Cargo Ship
This colorful vessel is named the Maersk Visby and is sailing under the flag of Singapore. She was built in 2010. For more information about her or to see her current location check out Vessel Finder. I first saw her sailing into the harbor at the beginning of the harbor but she was to far out I couldn’t get a view of with the camera.
Towards the end of the tour we were able to get close enough to her that I could get a few shots with the SEL55210 lens. What I love about these cargo ships is all the color. At least with this one, the Maersk Visby Cargo Ship is a rusty blue color and the containers bring even more colors into the ship.
About the Image
I took this shot at almost full zoom on a boat in the rocky waters of the harbor with a mixture of clouds and bright sunlight. I used Adobe Lightroom to edit the image, Topaz Denoise 5, and Topaz Clarity to add the texture and clarity back into the image. I then used Lightroom to play with the lighting.
