    Between all the snowshowers today I managed to take this picture when the crew had a lifeboat exercise.
    For one moment I thought they had got a new lifeboat,but I guess this one belongs to someone else.

        I had expected that "NX" would go to Prostneset quay this late evening and take up the southbound route from Tromsø 01:30 A.M,but not this time.

        From HRG:

        MS Nordstjernen - route change 11.03 - 13.03.2010.

        Ref. route change submitted 08/03/2010.

        Due to delay repair machine - cancels MS Nordstjernen southbound route from Harstad to Trondheim11.03 -13.03.2010.

        The ship will resume the southbound route from Trondheim 13.03.2010.


        Since she will stay a little bit longer,here is a late evening shot.

          Me thinks Nordstjernen is tired and needs a short vacation...

          Maybe she misses her sister which is sitting in the warm waters in Panama.

                And in the afternoon of the 13th, 20 minutes late, here she arrives in Kristiansund. In the background, we see from left the Tahitifestival area, Arnulf Øverland art gallery and Barcalore Tapas restaurant and Thon Hotel to the far right.

                      Are you feeling a bit more comfortable with your camera now? Looks like your handling has improved quite a bit, and let me also add that the image commented above is very nice!

                        The other lifeboat was from Tromsø Maritime skole, i think. They had lifeboat driver course.

                            Don't know..., maybe just a bit.

                            Without me want it to sound like braging, I just had to take one picture with my old camera to get an image to be satisfied with.
                            Now I have to take three, four or five to get a desent one to upload in a post.
                            I know most of the photographers see it as normal to take several pictures of an object and then pick the best, but I don't like to operate like that.
                            When I take a picture, I want it to be as close to perfect as possible in one shot...., but my new camera is unable to do that for me, unfortunately.

                            And what irritates me most, is that all my pictures now has a certain "soft" tone to them, as they had a sharper tone with my old camera.
                            I have the camera set on "Hard" in 'Sharpness', but it doesn't seem to help.

                                Love the fact that my new camera also takes Black&White images as well (monochrome). This image is straight out of the camera, no PS (apart from resizing and framing), taken today when Nordstjernen departed from Trondheim bound for Rørvik:
