I think we already have MORE than enough categories

I think what is meant is a topic on the forum, not a new category for photo's

Ages ago (pre-digital) I went on a boat trip with the Port Authorities. The port area is vast, but activities were/are quite spread out. I cannot tell you how it would be when having to rely on shore based photography only.

just for the record, the Sonatrach ships sold to Turkey are LNG tankers, not LPG.

Yes Vlad, I just counted, I have well over 20000 folders of different ship names, (not counting my old analog stuff). The date is an in-built feature of any shot (supposing you have your camera settings right) so I see no point in sorting them according to date. If I understand you correctly organising by date will need to rename each individual shot, rather than just keeping the camera number. I think I am saving a lot of time by throwing each shot of a ship into one directory with the proper name of the ship (adding IMO number to that name could sometimes also be useful), without having to rename all of the photograph. I suppose you, like me, also take significantly more shots than one of each ship you see.

And yes, I have two back-up hard discs as well.

Vlad, having to deal with 43 different ships is wonderful but it does not change the principle of how to organise your files. I personally still keep a file of each different ship I take a picture of, which also helps me to easily file shots I take of the same ships on another date. (I cannot always remember whether I have seen a ship before or not, so i already have file for the ship when I take a shot for the second or third time. Keeping your files on websites like marine taraffic or this one, is bound to end in tears one day, as you cannot control the operation of those sites.

Vlad, after downloading the shots to a harddrive, the first task should be to put all shots of each particular ship into a separate folder, named after the ship and with the imo number added. After that you can follow up with processing, selecting etc. Where the name of a ship needs to sorted out you can temporary store these pictures in a folder marked: "unknown"...

Hi Pieter

Re "A category should be based on WHAT the ship is, not WHERE it is. This approach would also imply that for instance  "casualties", "ships in drydock"  and "storm pics" should no longer be continued. I would not be opposing that. "

If your suggestion was adopted, how would you suggest dealing with those vessels now categorised as Inland Vessels?

simply as inland vessels, i.e. everything that is not seagoing..

You can indeed stand on the rear deck, and it is about the only way to properly shoot the tankers at the MOT.

Galati it is as the link in Dirk's post specifically mentions.

"See my piece in page one of this Topic http://forum.shipspotting.com/index.php/topic,15231.0.html, as you will see I did request it be developed to replace the comments sadly nothing came of it, it is member only and can only be used once.
Regards
Ken"

Ken, comments like "Great Shot" of "Big like" can be replaced by a simple like button, but explaining WHY somebody likes a photo requires words. (which may even help other people to improve their own shots).

the best viewed pictures are those with the most comments. As soon a shot generates one comment the ball starts rolling. That's why it is not allowed to comment on your own picture.

I approach the "like" system here in a similar fashion as Facebook, a like without a comment is of little value to me, when I like a photo I say why, and when I say why I do not need to "like" it on top.

Well, by putting weight/cargo in a floating hull you increase its displacement.
