Interesting, light in the water, and similar in this shot of her in the Central North Sea:

I was trying not to loose detail burning out the white superstructure and, as usual, underexposed the image. If companies would use anything but white, I wouldn't loose days trying to recover detail from "white holes" in photos.

Interesting view of her following the link. I've painted one PSV, for exhibition, but no-one's ever commissioned one. I'm tempted to paint Siem Sailor sometime, that's one that stands out from the crowd. Don't know if this link will get you where it should, but there's a very good pair of PSV photos at the other end.

Hi Rob, Not the light on her, but how she sits in the water with regard to her boot topping , her "trim" and depth.

Interesting to not how light she seems to be sitting, in comparison to the numerous other examples of the UT design. We had the Greatship Dhwani out here at the Borgsten last week, and remember well, noting how light she was forward. Reading the draft marks, albeit from a large angle, she seemed to still have about 3 metres draught there. Didn't seem to be any particular reaon for sitting light. I'll bet she was lively that night when the seas got messy!
