    Photos from my Cruise around the world

    So a lot of you old schoolers know that I went away for a little bit. I managed to take 1300 pictures while I was gone. These are all from my Sony T200. Very durable, and took a lot of abuse while still giving me great results!

    I didn't use any editing software other than Lightroom on a few of the pictures to adjust contrast, brightness and some colors that were lost, but unfortunately 64bit colors are out of question with Photobucket, so the majority of reds, oranges, and bright yellows were lost. Also, there was a lot of size distortion, all the pictures are about the same size, and photobucket made some small and some huge... ?? Who knows.

    If anyone wants to see the picture in it's original form, let me know, and I'll send it.

    I'm pretty amateur, but I thought that quite a few of these were worth posting...


    The USS Tarawa LHA-1... Such a piece of crap, that this was the last deployment for her.


    CH-53E (Transformers) and the American Flag the night before we headed out


    Gorgeous Sunset (Not Photoshopped!)


    Another Great Sunset! (Also, Not Photoshopped)


    Our fleet in formation (Was going for a WWII Era look with this one)


    Harrier Mid-STO (In the middle of taking off)


    53 sunset


    Photobucket absolutely killed the colors on this one. This is my favorite picture of a cobra (L) and a Seahawk (R) If you want to see the original, PM me. I'll forward it to you.


    Sailors near the bow of another ship while our ship was refilling theirs (I Believe the USS Hopper?)


    CH-46 (Phrog) Sunset


    The calm before the storm. No editing at all.


    Singapore Metro station. Was going for the "Vanishing Point" style of picture


    Clarke Quay (pronounced Key) in Singapore


    Chinatown in Singapore. Photobucket absolutely abused the reds in this.


    one of the "Twin Pagodas" in Singapore. I was also going for the vanishing point thing on this one.


    Koi Pond in Singapore (Reds and Oranges straight SLAUGHTERED by Photobucket)


    The Chinese Gardens in Singapore


    Harriers


    Rusted relic of a boat in a Kuwaiti Harbour


    Cobra landing


    Sunset


    Harrier Landing


    Market in Dubai


    Oldest Mosque in the United Arab Emirates


    Clock tower in Perth Australia


    Seagull on Rottnest Island, Australia


    Sepia-tone beach on Rottnest Island, Australia. We were the only ones here, it was gorgeous, and the snorkeling wasn't bad


    Coral head on Rottnest


    Macro of a seashell that is less than 1/4 inch tall


    Harbor in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia


    Wombat


    2 Tasmanian Devils fighting. Way cool to watch.


    Koala (Very friendly)


    Koala


    Emu. Extremely hard photo to take. I used a macro, but he was so twitchy I ended up taking about 20 pictures to catch it.


    Myself with a Kangaroo. Really cool animals.

    Pretty long, I'm sorry. Mods just email me if you want me to cut some of these out.

    Someone needs to caption the picture of the bird.

    I like the picture of the koala. I have heard that the males are mean.

    Awesome pictures!!! But lacking captions! I want to know where you were or descriptions of what you were looking at!

    Like what's that place with the riverboat and the multi-colored buildings? Looked like a superb place to visit!

    And thanks again for protecting our freedoms.
