    I NEVER get tired of these shots!

    This is such a high quality image: could immerse myself for hours looking at it. It evokes so many childhood memories!

      How do you manage to focus on the boat and ceep it clear while the background moves? Is it a "feature" on your camera or?

        I am absolutely no expert on this panning, but I do this with my camera handheld (no tripod)
        I hope that this might be of some help.

        Try this:
        1. Set the camera on Shutter Priority (camera determines the aperture)
        2. Use the auto-focus tracking
        3. Series picture function key must be turned on
        4. Shutting rate is set to 1/15 - 1/20 seconds, sometimes less/or higher (test this out)
        5. You follow your subject in the viewfinder and click while you move the camera in the horizontal direction either left/right
        6. If the background and the object is blurred, increase shutter speed, the opposite if the background and the object is clearly
        You want a blurred background with a clear object in the image.

        Best effect with colored background of (houses, boats, forests, etc.)

        There is only one thing to do, go out to test this out and see what comes out of this.
        Be prepared to send many pictures in the bin to begin with, but it is incredibly fun to keep doing this when everything works.

        Good Luck
        WOW!! You acctually make these shots with the camera handheld?
        Thank you for the advices. I need to try this. But it most be very difficult getting it clear..

            That's a fantastic shot! The snow, the lighting, the deserted quay. Everything comes together to the great mood in this picture. One can really feel the snow flying around. Since I love this kind of weather, I really would have been there myself.

              I'm one of those on "the other side", who not love that weather.
              What I admire, however..., is photographers like Carina here, who manage to take such pictures without a single drop on the lense. Then again, maybe it's taken from inside a warehouse gate down at the docks there...?
              Here is "Lofoten" in Kristiansund today, and she's sized with "Siem Amethyst".

                Yeah. I took the picture from inside the car. Isnt rain/snow possibly ruining or damaging SLR-cameras?

                  Clever, and very comfortable!

                  Yes and no, most cameras can stand some rain/snow. When people are asking I usually say that as long you can stand the rain in "normal clothes" then your camera can. Just be careful to wipe it off as soon as possible. I usually keep a towel in my camera bag, just to be prepared.

                  The same goes for snow, but for cold there's a very important issue:
                  when bringing in a cold camera (or any other electronic gadget) to a warm room you should always let the camera warm up slowly inside the closed camera bag. The reason is that otherwise you will get condensated water inside the camera. If you are in a hurry picking it up, then put it in a plastic bag before bringing it inside. Then the condensation will be outside the bag and not inside your camera. Just wait until the camera get a bit warm before opening the bag.

                  A ordinary lens hood is very helpful when photographing in rain or snow, keeping the drops away from the front lens.

                    wow I never knew that. I often bring it with me outside when it's cold, so thanx for letting me/us know.

                        Lofoten as Honningsvåg's "Hurtigrute du Jour", June 2009 and 2011. The old lady always looks graceful - and small - as she comes into the harbour.

                        When the view is like this from the flat window, it's time to start walking down for coffee!



                        Coming onto the berth - shame about the milky sky



                        Then wait for the passengers to disembark before we can go on for our coffee and cakes!

                            Just scanning all of the old family 35mm prints and negs. Found this one that I thought would fit nicely here. Some time in the 1990s in Vardø - in the days when the classic boats still carried vehicles. Many apologies for quality, but thought subject justified the use of this one. Very, very, very glad it wasn't my car.

                              I guess I wouldn't care too much if that was my car. However, if you watch this video at 09:29 and that Challenger R/T was my car, I would probably end up with a heart attack

                              BTW, keep scanning those 35mm, would love to see more if you have!

                                I must say, picture nr. 2 of post #513 looks like a post card. Very nice job!!!

                                Is one of the bridge windows covered with ply-wood?
                                Nope, that is the sunglare shield. (You got'em on board "Korsfjord" also. You know, like a drop-down curtain)

                                Here you can easily see three of them in the bridge windows of "Lofoten" in one of my images from...., oh....., it must be 2004-2005 or something, when leaving Kristiansund.
