Cal earlier posted a shot taken in a cruise ship. Reminded me of one I had from the Crystal Serenity.

Nice shot of the passageway. Looks like a beautiful ship. The vanishing point and converging lines are definitely there.

Either my eyes are going bad (a definite possibility!) or this shot seems a little soft in the focus. The close foreground (the sign on the left side) is in focus but the rest seems a little fuzzy.

Walter,

A true display of the vanishing point. It took me some deep thinking about what Cal said and then I noticed that he was correctly pointing out the loss of detail in the columns as you look further in. Perhaps as he hypothesized due to soft focus.

Am I correct that this was a handheld shot with no flash? and thus a long exposure?or am I way off?

Aloha

Yes, this was a handheld shot with a very small Olympus C-50. Flash was fired automatically but, as you might expect, didn't have much reach. Exposure was 1/30th sec., too slow for steady handheld. I also took my DSLR on the trip, but for on board quick shots like this I carried a less obtrusive palm-sized digicam.

Good question. As I recall the ship's casino had an entrance to the left where you see a break in the carpet. That entry tile (or whatever) was not square, so the angle of the carpet on both sides was angled. Other than that, I don't have an explanation.
