More big boats!
On the left:
USS Charles F Adams DDG-2, Lead ship of her class of guided-missile destroyers.
In the center and right, are two Ticonderoga class, guided-missile cruisers. One of which is the lead ship USS Ticonderoga CG-47, the other is the USS Yorktown CG-48

Very nice shot, although it makes me sad to see the Yorktown looking like that. I was stationed aboard her while in the Navy. Good ship.....all of them were. Thanks for posting.

Thanks so much! I'm sure it must be so sad to see your ship sitting in mothballs awaiting her fate.

Thank you for your service. When did you sail on her? What was your job?

You are the only former Navy man, who sailed on one of these beauties, to have commented.

One except is, the picture of the Frigates came about because, while I was at the Navy Yard shooting, I happened to meet an active duty sailor who sailed on the USS Halyburton, so I made that shot for him and emailed him the file. I hope he got it.

Thank you. I was on the Yorktown form 1990 to 1992, she was a good ship, with a great crew. i was an operations Specialist (operator for the radar, communications, and navigation). To date two of the ships I was stationed on have been turned into artificaial reefs, and I have the video of one (USS Peterson DD-969). Each ship had its good points and their bad, but I enjoyed everyone one of them. My last deployment was on the Theodore Roosevelt as part of staff (right after 9/11 and ende up being 10 monts, with 2 port visits), and the JKF was a welcome sight when she came to relieve us (its last deployment).

Thanks again, I really appreciate your photos of them.

Wow! I can't imagine the enormity and power of seeing the USS Theodore Roosevelt. I felt might puny standing in front of the Kennedy, while I was shooting her.

Kerel. River Thames. UK.

Taken with the 100-400L mkII +1.4mkIII extender at close range.
This picture consists of four images stitched in Photoshop CS6 and the resulting high res image cropped at 1600x470px to comply with the forum image size.

HMS Westminster. River Thames, Northfleet. August-08-2019. 2000hrs. Slipping by silently in darkness toward the Thames estuary and the North Sea or English Channel.
The light was fading rapidly.
The two shots are from the same file.
The top picture taken in the existing lighting conditions at the time.
The lower picture recovered with a little tweak in Photoshop CS6.
This is begging the question - Should I have left the original and not tweaked it?-?
Have I demonstrated the ability of the 100-400 L mkII to focus in near darkness?-?

I like the top one better. It's like the viewer is standing beside you watching. Your description is very evocative.

Thanks Annie. I have posted both on marinetraffic.com - we will see if they reject one or accept both. They can hardly reject it on differentiation - can they?:-)
PS I have clicked a few stars for you on that site.

Thanks, Ray, I have a few photos up there. They reject as many of mine as they accept though. I think they consider some photos taken by photographers as being a bit 'arty'!!! When the Ocean GreatWhite came down the sound at the beginning of the year I was out in gale force winds at 3 am taking photos of her coming down the Sound. She was all lit up but they didn't like it as it was dark and you couldn't quite make out the full profile, so I don't think they will accept your dark one but the noisy one will be fine!!! I'll go and search yours out.
