Here is another set of photos from last summer, which I had already prepared for publication earlier. The Emerald Princess is yet a yet another variant of Princess Cruises' numerous (and in my opinion, externally terribly unattractive) Grand class. According to Fakta om Fartyg she was originally to be named Californian Princess, but this was changed to the more international Emerald Princess during construction.
The photographs below show the Emerald Princess departing Helsinki West Harbour on the evening of 3 August 2013. Photographed from Sisä-Hattu. Click on the images to see them in larger size.
|In my opinion, the framing of this image is rather successful. The ship itself is not that attractive.|
|Notice how much smaller the sailing boat is in comparison to the Emerald Princess.|
|Traditional shot with The Photogenic Tree.|
|It was a lovely summer day, which I think translates fantastically in this photo.|
|Again, while the ship isn't the most attractive thing out there, this is a superb shot, even if I may say so myself.|
