I would credit the photo whether the original photographer was dead or alive. That's a given. But I didn't know about the post death restrictions.
Ok, thanks for clarifying. At this point, I'm giving up.
Regards,
Marek

UPDATE:

So I emailed the seller of the slides and he was able to provide me with a name that was written on another batch they had from the same person. Doing some research, I sadly learned that the photographer of these slides had passed away in 2007. (RIP)
I assume that with the original owner of these photos being deceased, I am allowed to post?

I am attaching a link to his obituary where one of his friends specifically mentions his knowledge of cruise ships:

Again, thank you for helping with this.

Thank you Michael! This answers my question in great detail.
I will try to find out if I can track down the photographer. Until then, no posting.

Best regards,
Marek

Greetings folks!

Wanted to ask: I buy 35mm slides on Ebay, often ships. Am I allowed to post scanned slides here. Obviously they were not taken by me, but I do have a very high end slide scanner and these photos do go back in time a little bit. I see people here posting some B&W scans which I doubt were taken by them.
Thanks for helping with this!

Ah....got it. Not wanting to stir up trouble or be a smart alec, but why only from the water line up? What's the reasoning for not allowing some of that red paint in the shot? Genuine question.

Thank you,
Marek

Why was this photo deleted? Are bow/stern shots not allowed?

Any clarification would be appreciated.

Thanks David. Very well put. I just thought that maybe bringing this topic up would stir up some consideration to further site evolution and photographic expression. Ultimately it's up to the admins. I'm just glad that I can contribute some content.

Cheers,
Marek

Thanks Phil! I completely understand. Looking forward to posting more. Interesting discussion none the less Smiley

I honestly don't want to stir up any trouble here. Just something I think the site admins may consider. I approach this from a purely photography point of view. I don't care what ship is in my viewfinder, as long as I have something interesting to capture or present it in a way that makes my audience smile.

Could a general category be added which would encompass closeup/detail shots? No sub-categories inside. Just detailed shots of any vessel. I think this would bring a new dimension to the fine marine photography on this site and enable us and our audience to see things most don't, especially when our subjects tend to be quite a distance away from us and many will never set foot on the decks of the ships we photograph.

The aviation community faced the same issue when for the longest time some of the foremost aviation photography sites also disallowed posting of close ups, and yet with the advent of social media, sites like FB and IG now find these types of shots to be very popular.

Just a humble thought Smiley

I totally missed that! My apologies. Thanks for pointing that out. Much appreciated. And thank you for the kind words. Smiley

I'm wondering, are close up/isolation photos allowed? I often shoot at 1200mm and get some nice details of anchors being hoisted up but I'm not sure that's allowed in picture posting. Can someone advise please?

Thank you!

1.3MB isn't necessary for posting here. At a resolution of 72dpi, a 1400x1050 pic (as an example) shouldn't take more than 600kb. Make sure your pics are no more than 72 dpi since that's all any monitor will display. There's also no use in posting pics that are 4000x4000 pixels. Try to keep it within a reasonable size and you'll have better success!
Good luck,
Marek

Thanks for the great news Steve. Damn..I'd give and arm and a leg (among other body parts not so frequently used these days) to photograph that. A few years back we had a Russian sub here. Well...it was quite a while ago. Too bad I wasn't into photography back then. I'd make my cameras smoke had it been nowadays.
