Welcome to Worldwide Ship Spotters. This group has now been running since April 2008 and I would like to thank all those members and non-members for posting some wonderful images to the pool. Anyone joining this group will know that the intention of this group is to bring together images of ships from all over the World, whether it's a fishing boat, cargo carrier or cruise liner, most are welcome here.

***PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE: DECK SHOTS, ROWING BOATS, RIGGING OR SHIP INTERIORS***

Group Description

Worldwide Ship Spotters is a group that was set up to allow ship lovers from all over the globe, an opportunity to submit their marvelous photographs of ships from the Seven Seas and Waterways of the world, for the pleasure of viewing and discussing those images in the group.

We welcome Ships, Ships and More Ships - Cruise liners, Tankers, Cargo Carriers, Yachts, Barges, Ferries and Lifeboats, Vessels of the Emergency Services and Hovercraft. Please do not include Oil or Drilling Rigs!

Thank You.

Group Rules

1) Only the vessel must be the main focus of the image.
2) All vessels must be able to make way by engine, sail or both. No rowing boats or punts.
3) Watermarks should be discreet and not obscure the image. But if you do have a copyright watermark, and I would advise you should to protect YOUR work, then these watermarks should be discreet and placed as close to the vessel as is possible without touching the vessel either above, below or to the sides.
4) Images must not be so small that images cannot be seen properly in normal view.
5) Images must not be too blurred or out of focus, self explanatory really.
6) Images should not be too dark, so as to not make out the vessel, even with ship board lighting.
7) Images must not contain large numbers of vessels gathered in marinas or docks, these types of images leave to viewer wondering which boat or ship is the main focus of the image. There is possibly room for a suitable new group being called "Which Vessel Am I Looking At Now?"
8) And finally, Please do not include; deck shots, rigging or interiors.

Other than that we welcome Ships, Ships and More Ships - Cruise, Tanker, Cargo, Yachts, Barges, Ferries and Lifeboats, Navies from around the world!

The Admin will use the above criteria to ensure that images meet the requirements of the group.
