Re: Ship being towed to mooring place

Thanks for the link to the article on diffraction limitation. I've been trying to buy myself a good book on photography if only for this type of problems, but it seems like there aren't any --it's all far more evolved.

The 1/90th was unavoidable: I had the sun almost straight ahead. You used to be able to go anywhere in the port of Antwerp but free movement for anyone without an access pass is very restricted these days with the 'war on terror'. I did use a tripod to avoid camera shake. The ship was moving at dead slow speed so I took my chances with that (I come from a family of deck officers and know well what dead slow means in terms of snail speed

I'll learn this by heart, though, as well as the theory on hyperfocal distance.
