Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is One Shot, Two Ways. “For this challenge, capture two images — a horizontal and a vertical version — of the same scene or subject.”

At last year’s Great North River Tugboat Race & Competition

The biggest and the smallest

The landscape format just doesn’t do it… It takes a portrait shot to show just how enormous Lincoln Sea is!

And the tugs are getting ready again for this year’s rematch. If you are anywhere near New York Harbor on Sunday, September 1, don’t miss the 21st annual running of the Great North River Tugboat Race & Competition!

  6. Wow. How fun!!! You weren’t in a kayak during that craziness, were you?!


    • No, they probably wouldn’t have let us get anywhere close in kayaks. But we were on a boat—a Circle Line boat, chartered especially for the occasion, that was able to get us very close to the action. I highly recommend getting on that boat, as opposed to staying on shore, to see the tug race in its full glory…


  7. My kind of photos… :-)

  18. great shots vlad, put me right into the action


  19. Fabulous photos of a great unknown (unknown by me, probably little-known at best?) New York event. Tuffy the Tugboat all grown up, taking his place in the sun!
    For the challenge, especially love the fireboat (?) welcoming the winner with those enormous arcs of water. Terrific either way, vertical or horizontal, but the vertical (to me) really is overwhelming in effect.


  20. Wow! In Sydney, it’s the ferries that get the glory. But I have to wonder — given how big Lincoln is, what size are the ships it, uh, tugs??


    • Not quite what you might expect. There are huge ships in the harbor, but the Lincoln Sea was designed as the tug part of an Articulated Tug and Barge (ATB) combination, which means that it pushes its own dedicated barge (and other barges) around. The size and strength comes in handy in adverse weather, in winter, etc.You can read more about the Lincoln Sea and see it in action pushing barges here.
