I do not know about that, but in just one photo you have waaaaaaaayy more boats than I do in many of mine. Very well done!

Thanks jerryy. I hope you appreciate that I went to Scotland just to help you here with this boat and ships thread. I have a few more for you coming (whether you like it or not 😀). I am properly photobombing this thread that you had all for yourself for too long.

You are making me blush.

I do appreciate your efforts, keep them floating on in (or rolling on in as the case may be for those poor unfortunate ones that are stranded without water). Great work!

p.s. Did you cook those snails and mussels or just munch them down as you found them?

I used to do a fair bit of sailing many years ago, often with sailors from Austria. I had a skipper license, owned a part of a boat etc. The legend had it that two Austrian sailors, "world-famous" as my Austrian friends would describe them, who sailed all over the world and wrote a book about their ventures, after visiting their next port of destination and spending time in the port and in the city, would meticulously record the B/F factor into the nautical charts, with the purpose for the other sailors to know which port is more worth visiting than the other. 

The way they calculated it was that Baraviczka would count all the pretty girls he saw and Vatermann would count all the girls he saw and then they divided those two numbers and there you have it jerryy, the B/F factor. I hope I will not be scorched to death for this not PC post. No offence meant to anybody, just some old-fashioned fun.

      Had a weekend at Chatham in Kent staying with some friends, during which we got to enjoy a walk around the old Naval Base/ Naval Museum and surrounding walks etc.
      Along the way we came along this view of the yacjts all moored and apparently in a fairly straight line. A quick reach into my pocket resulted in this image being created - it's why you own a camera like the X-100T.
      The image has been cropped in Adobe Lightroom and the trees recovered using the shadow slider, otherwise it is fairly close to how it came out of the camera.
      Just not sure if I should have cropped more tightly along the bottom edge?

    • Shame, you should seriously look at Capture One as a) you don't have to pay for it, the Fuji version is free to users of Fuji. b) Capture one really does not have a big learning curve at all, people make out it does, and it put me off for a long while, and then I did it and it was great. It has a tool to import and covert your existing LR catalogue (whilst preserving the LR catalogue) c) There are options to configure the view and workflow to ape LR as closely as is possible to he
    • As well as any other camera. Its fine till you go below the auto focus low light threshold which I believe is -5, in practice I have not found it to be a blocker for flash photography outside or in studio, which is where I use them, YMMV
    • So after all your requests have been answered favorably by Fuji with the X_t4, have you bought one?
    • I have been using my XT4 quite a bit lately--mostly making outdoors videos, but also some family/portrait shoots.   One strange thing that I've noticed:  After setting up the display exactly how I like it, the EVF will display histogram, level, and battery level (among other things).  However, when I am just looking at the back screen, these 3 items are not displayed--UNLESS I turn off the AF!  As soon as AF is turned off, histogram, level, batt level appear on the rear screen exactly where
    • Fuji gave us the X-Pro3 for still focused users, no? Personally, I'd sacrifice AF for IBIS and if Fuji had more OIS lenses, sacrifice IBIS desires as OIS is close enough. Just too useful with environmental portraits. I have the GF45-100 primarily because of OIS.
