Photographer’s Notes
• By way of context, we have friends who own this yacht, and are selling it ($2,450,000 if you're interested). I agreed to photograph it so the photos could be included in online marketing materials. They’re friends, so I’m doing this without a fee.
• I felt that owning a 70 foot yacht was an indulgence, and that the salon illustrated the indulgence of it.
• So, here it is. Enjoy! BTW: the title is fictitious; it’s not the real name of their boat. But the boat is obviously real.

Wow this is certainly my idea of luxury. IMO this is certainly indulgent, but I could certainly handle it with no guilt! Great shot! 8

You should had taken it at night. I don't like the white windows. Everything else is very goo.

A quite nice shot. I imagine it was technically difficult to get a crisp sharp shot in tight quarters of a boat. You communicated the "rich" feeling of this ship very well.

have more faith in your shot - to me it meets the challenge without the huge title. I think this is a great shot - worthy of company marketing materials at least! - 7

This must be from a yatching-maniac. Someone who appreciates craftsmanship, form, and function. I wonder who that might be. A good representation of indulgence - if the viewer has the knowledge of the cost of maintaining such a vessel.
