2010 FIFA World Cup-Tribute to the Rainbow Nation
This is V&A or Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. The oldest part of Cape Town harbour after a thorough face-lift, now emerging as bustling multi faceted playground packed with shops, bars, handicraft markets, up market hotels, pubs and restaurants, the most successful tourist development in the country.
In the background, the famous Table Mountain or simply 'the mountain' as the locals call it, is flanked by Devil's Peak on the left and partly hidden Lion's Head.
Shot date May 2003

This is a nicely composed shot of this calm harbor. The additions of the boats in the foreground add good depth to the scene. The reflection is nice and well captured providing fine balance for the shot. The contrast provided by the mountains in the background is great.

What a beautiful marina and these vibrant color hues, it's very dreamy shot. The clouds are just added extra. Very good photo job. Thanks for your critique of my wooden mosque. Even Malays living in Kedah seldom know about this mosque and I guess that there hardly will be a second one like this.

impressionnants ces nuages, leur blancheur parfaite contraste bien avec ces couleurs vives bien reflétées.
Une photo nette et d'une excellente profondeur.

having never been to south africa and cape town, i now want to.
love these marina type shots and the panoramic appeal in the circular view.
all the elements seem to circumvent the entire frame.

You show us that South Africa is a country with
great diversity and you show us one of your
trademarks: boats. The boats, the pier, the
diagonal lines etc. creates a very nice depth.
Light management and composition are also

Hi abmdsudi !!!
Nice view, nice colours, nice reflections and nice place........just about everything one wants in the photograph.
Here in Sydney we have a very similar place ( Darling Harbour ) but without the mountain.
can I please ask you for the origin of your name.... my guess is that it is Indonesian, a country I visited about 36 years ago.

J'aime la composition , les couleurs, les reflets, une image de qualité très agréable a regarder

You're capturing well this landscape by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the waterfront with many elements of harbor, reataurant, high buildings, boat pier and Table Mountain of backdrop etc. And, the reflection of clouds projected to the bay draws out a good atmosphere.

Fine shot over the port and the prominently high Table-mountain above town.
Water surface provided a shine and reflected the surrounding scenery. Picture is very pleasent to look at.
Enjoy your weekend,

Fantastic composition showing well the beauty of this place. The inclusion of the boats at the fg enhance the depth lines leading the eye into the tableberg.
