Ever had one of those shots that just took forever to get it right? No editing...just the perfected shot, and maybe a description of what made it hard.

Finished my watch on one of my cross atlantic sailing voyages, calm bright night, harnessed myself onto the bow of the vessel to get as wide shot as i can. Handheld the camera for 13 sec to get this exposure.
