Guess what's that?!

Hi all,

I'm sure many of you can easily recognise HOW I made these pictures. Try to guess WHAT I pictured...

Bow of a ship taken from beneath the bridge with harbour lights in the background?

First one taken as the vessel passes beneath a bridge.

Second one looks a if there were people waving torches while the camera's shutter was open

Looks like it's crossing the wash of another vessel - whilst barely making way (if at all). Could be from a moored boat.

The second one I go with shore lights plus port and starboard hand channel marks (the red and green) taken from vessel pitching and rolling. There could be a cardinal fine off the starboard bow (assuming we are looking forward)

The first I have no idea

Re: Guess what's that?!

Sorry for delay, being out of range of internet connection...

To maccabeej and Ellie: Right! I have to add - it was lifting bridge (it's Spijkernisser Bridge in Oude Maas river, Rotterdam area, the Netherlands) so the lights of the middle part of the bridge were moving in two directions against the camera. That's why top lights have different tracks. BTW a lot of people said it's rockets

To Adagio: Bingo! The second - an approach to the port Belfast on a swell - my ship was really rolling and pitching so when I took this photo I was surprised a lot...

Thank you to all watched and replied!
