Kaga? Maybe in the IO?

EDIT: Not Kaga....I'm switching to Soryu class

Not Kaga for sure.
My bet is on Soryu, Shokaku class had those side towars alongside both edges near the middle and back of the ship.

Possibly the ship in the foreground is a AO? It looks like some kind of hose connection in the front

I know exactly what you mean. Before I started frequenting this forum, I thought I had quite some knowledge concerning these subjects.

It didn't take long before I realized my error ...

I`ll plump for Soryu too I think - the island is too far forward for Hiryu.

Ayup. Compared to your "average" WW2 Pac War history buff I'm a big fish in a little pond.

Compared to most of these guys.... I'm not even a mouthful for a diatom.

The bow is one deck too high for the Soryu.

Its a difficult picture to classify but i will go for Shokaku as Soryu has 2 sponsoons behind the island and this one does not have. Brady from where do you get these wonderful pictures ? I do not want to imagine what you have on your hard-disk.

Bridge looks too far forward for Soryu. Shokaku or Zuikaku.

Those towers, I think, are radio antennae, which, during flight ops would be lowered to clear the flight path.

I place my bet on Shokaku The bridge is correct. The Soryu's bridge widened slightly at top.

 The Image source offers up nothing, but after carefull examanation of the profiles in: Imperial Japanese Navy Aircraft Carriers 1921-45, Stille. I beleave it is almost certainly Soryu.

Well, I beg to differ. The bow rake looks much more a Shokaku's than Soryu
