I love the colours you have captured in these churning waters....it goes well with the yellow suit.
The cement breaker blocks are not attractive but it illustrates the need for erosion control in that area.
Are we to assume much of this shore has already been lost over the years?

Very good "man against the forces of nature" shot, Ayman! Quite an effecive composition, with the gushing incoming water on the left, and the fishing guy on the right. Great color saturation and sharpness. Good shot.

I love the color of the sea and the fisherman. The turbulence of the water is so strong in this. It's really good. I wonder how much he caught in these conditions. Very nicely done.

This is a really nicely composed pic. Colors are well saturated too. I never imaged the water of Alexandria so blue. They're very stormy here too.

I like much the photo, very beautiful colors... excellent work.

His yellow suit is very important here and the cubic scour protection also gives a special feeling as it is rough but yet very organized at the same time and a bit unusual. The position of the man is very well chosen in your composition.

Alexendria make me think at Claude François and the song "Alexendrie Alexendra" in French that we always heard at each party here. The turquoise color of the sea in amazing and you framed very well the fisher man. Well done, Ayman!

Great photo here. The waves at the water is great and the bright read color of the coat is amazing, making a great contrast with the colors of the sea. Well done!

a great strong shot, Ayman. The sea looks very stormy and the fisherman is so small. off centered. I like those concrete cubes and the rust :-) Very nice composition, Ayman.

Good composition in choosing to place the fisherman on the right side. Lovely capture of the roaring seas. Great colours. Very, very well done, Ayman.

You've captured this shot very well.
The contrast between the blue water and the guy with yellow suit are great. Very well done.
orme (7213) 2004-02-13 2:19
Great shot, Ayman. The colours are excellent. You captured the wave crashing on the stones perfectly. I like the way the fisherman seems to be cautiously looking at the waves to come. Well done.

Nice photo! The color and texture contrast is great and the presence of the man add the perfect detail to the composition.
Also like his body position and placement in the composition.
Anyway I've made a WS. Hope you'll like it.

Wow great shot. The composition with the fisherman is just perfect. I really like the color of the sea. It seems like the sea is very strong.

Nice colors Ayman, I love the framing you choose to do here. The guy alone on the right..
zto (292) 2004-02-13 15:46
A stormy sea. This is very well seen of you Ayman, as usual. That fisherman looks really brave, and lonely. A wonderfull but simple composition.
dominique (11414) 2004-02-13 16:23
A super framing for a very interesting photograph. I like the composition and the colors. it is really well done.

superb effect, the sea seems so clear it is almost real
timleahy (2193) 2005-09-01 4:15
Excellent slot Ayman. The colour of the sea is lovely. Composition very good, in the way the sea looks so big and powerful, and one small man battling against it. Well done!
tootsie (400) 2006-01-30 2:36
wow this is really awesome. i love the perspective with the sea so great and powerful, and the man so small. his yellow rain suit offers a striking contrast to the blue backdrop. so nicely positioned and framed - very well done!!
schobi (187) 2006-04-07 6:40

Best regards, Schobi

Great foto!I love the color of the sea and it makes perfect contradiction with the "yellow" fisherman...
goonivuz (170) 2007-03-15 20:21
Great comp of colours. and a great way to spend any morning...
There is an excellent sense of scale ( the size of the wave compared to the size of the man) - you can tell he really wants that fish...
THanks for sharing - john
