Falukas on the Nile are an ancient Arabic trading vessel. Now they are a tourist pleasure craft. On the shoreline you see some of the apartment buildings in the Maadi district.

Excellent pp work on the levels in the highlights & the pp is almost indistinguishable which is exactly what was intended. Good choice of a vertical frame to get all of the Egyptian boat in frame. Excellent sharpness & saturation. A nice old vs new contrast with the modern hotels & apartments in the bg. Maybe a slight rotation to the right? Tfs!

This is a very pleasant photo in terms of composition, sharpness, clarity and depth. Vertical framing is the right choice here. I like the strong color tones and reflections on the water. Thanks for sharing. Regards,

I envy you having the sites og Egypt to photograph! My son has just returned with some fine shots.
Your use of portrait style was well chosen for this shot, allowing inclusion of the light reflecting water before reaching the focal boat with its tall mast and sails. There is implied movement whilst the boat is sharp enough.
My only suggestion for improvement would be to position the boat more to the r/h edge so that it would be sailing into the frame not out of it.
My warm regards,

Un cadre vertical très bien composé et les reflets de la voile au premier plan apportent de l'intensité à cette image.

J'ai toujours aimé la forme pittoresque de ces voiles. Le cadrage vertical la met bien en valeur et la luminosité est superbe.

Bon format verticale et la composition du bateau a voile, belle lumière sous le ciel gris et de beaux reflets en avant plan

looking at the small thumbnails in your gallery, this large white sail caught my attention almost right away.
I really like the strong angle, the way it almost is moving across the frame.
the lighted reflections are an added bonus.

Perfect the sailing boat in front of contemporary modern Buildings. And looking at the sail we must be in down-town, with modern towers in the BG. Good light management with high sharpness. Well done
