the harbor of the old fishing town of Essaouira on the atlantic coast of Morocco is a photographers dream. Hundreds of blue fishing barks wait in the docks for the daily business, while in the busy working fishing port, fishermen and patrons alike sort trough the latest catch or are even preparing the charcoal BBQ to prepare the freshest of what the sea has to offer, while thousands of seagulls await their turn for the leftovers. The chaotic hustle and buste, the noise and the smell of the sea, all add up to a truly alluring experience.

Hello Daniel, I agree, the Essaouira harbour with all the blue fishing boats is a photographers dream. Original composition.

I like the way you composed this image cropping closely on the boat which fills almost the whole frame. The lines and textures are very well captured. Good idea to present it in portrait format.

Bonjour Daniel ,
J'aime beaucoup ce genre d'image de bateau . Excellent point de vue bas et tout bon cadrage , même si j'aurais supprimé le petit élément sur le bord en bas à droite .

I like this a lot, a portrait of a boat, and if I did not kinow better, I would say it looks quite inquisitive in how its holding itself! Almost as if it is viewing you and your camera and wondering what you are doing. Haha, I love when an image imbues a character onto a lifeless object, and this is done perfectly here. The off centre composition is really nicely thought out.
Thanks as always

Salut mon cher Daniel
This reminds me a lot of the photos of Brian Timecapturer. I love the vivid colours and textures. The closeup is superb and you have excellent depth of field, detailing the snippet of house in the background. Wonderful photo job, very artistic.

well, this is a different sort of photo for a boat.
i like it.
a photographers dream here eh?
sounds great to me.
if this boat is what's out there, it must be heaven haha
for obvious reasons, the vertical compo is the best way to go, and of course the blues and whites look great.
glad to see the boat has some 'use' to it

I like the tonalities of white and blue here! The boat is very beautiful and you framed it well, with the window in background. Very good colours and textures.

hi daniel. i know, missing essaouira was a bad choice during my trip to morocco, and seeing photos like this, i regret more and more. this is a "wow" compo, very impressive presentation of the humble boat and i like your inclusion of the building in the bg. great blues and textures everywhere. cropping a bit (or cloning out) from the right side could enhance the compo.
