Although I spend a fair amount of time searching out specific subjects to photograph, I love the excitement when an unexpected image appears before me. This recently occurred on a cruise that my wife and I took (our first) last Valentine's Day. As we were walking along the gang plank to depart onto to Freeport, Bahamas, the blue colors and mooring lines immediately spoke to me. With my Nikon D300 with 18-200 mm lens over my shoulder, I took numerous images. I tweeked the color and contrast using Nik's Viveza and cropped it so that the mooring line acts as a leading line into the image from the lower left hand corner. Always be ready as you never know what might be around the next corner.
