Grandeur Of The Night

Old Photographs

I was searching through some of my old photos earlier today and was surprised by how grainy and blurry so many of the photos look.  By old photos, I don’t mean ancient old, I mean two to four years ago.  Those pictures were taken with an Olympus point and shoot camera (Stylus 1030SW) that was new when I bought it in 2008.  It was a fairly nice camera at the time, and was waterproof, a feature I used extensively.  But so many of the pictures that seemed fine at the time just don’t look good now.  Having a better understanding of photography no doubt has made my photos better but it is also amazing how much of a difference the jump from a point and shoot to a DSLR made in image quality.

Grandeur In San Juan

This photo of Royal Caribbean’s Grandeur of the Seas was taken in San Juan, Puerto Rico back in 2009.  I was returning to the ship one evening when I noticed how nice the scene was with the moon emerging from behind the clouds.  The shots with a regular length exposure weren’t turning out very well so I tried with a longer exposure and this was the result.  I did not have a tripod with me so I had to brace the camera against wall along the water to keep it still.
