Another great picture, and a wonderful ship. Anne, have you tried learning to use an image editor to tune your photos after you’ve taken them? You can achieve a lot just using Picasa, but now that you are becoming such a proficient photographer you should try the Gimp, which is free and as powerful as Photoshop. It even has a decent manual, which it lacked before.
