Heavy rain clouds gather as the abandoned boats at Hammamet beach catch the sudden burst of late afternoon sunlight.
Picture was taken about 1 hour after my previous posting next to the old medina city wall, exposed on the foreground area.
Additional equipment used: Cokin Gradual Neutral Grey G1-P120 filter.

We are neighbours today! (:-)
And this is precisely my favourite genre: boats and seascapes!
Wonderful light an colours here and a very good composition which exploits well the lovely curves of this colourful boat. A very good mastering of contra light and a very Mediterranean atmosphere.
I wish I had done that! (:-)

This has lots of impacts as a thumbnail and does not disappoint once seen large.The brightly coloured boat is perfectly placed and together with the other boat create a leading line with the sand between taking us to the sea.There is a beautiful light and I like the fg detail.
BluSimo (9392) 2011-02-20 10:39
it's an optimal definition on the boat in fg, its details and colors, and there's trace of the wave that just arrived on the beach. the surface of the sea has a dense, pittoric effect, it is a lot interesting. the blue oval of the boat seems to want to go against the horizon in storm. very evocativ shot... my compliments.
have a good week

npecanhuk (75122) 2011-02-20 11:46
That's a very attractive picture!
I really like this foreground, with that colorful boat, but the background is even more interesting with those clouds, sun rays and silhouettes of mountains!
TFS - congrats,

Abandoned the boats are but the ocean seems to invite them back. The colours and atmosphere are just beautiful. Fascinating patterns in the sand too...and what is that little luminescent object? A fabulous image.
prasun984 (5590) 2011-02-20 12:41
excellent photography...I like the colour tone of the boat...
annjackman (21895) 2011-02-20 13:24
This is a spendid capture with an excellent POV. The beautiful sunlight in the sky and on the water is a perfect bacground fof the strong colours of the boat.
ciakgiak (30431) 2011-02-20 13:34
I like a lot these kind of compositions, the subjects, boat and sea, are two between my favourite subjects, and in this case the image is very well composed, with the boat in FG and the splendid seascape in BG. The effect is superb.
Congratulations and TFS.

ottima la definizione che con una luce molto particolare fa risaltare i colori.
Mi piace molto l'inquadratura con la barca in FG,
Urs (14082) 2011-02-20 16:43
At first I did not see it, but after clicking on your photograph I realized, that you capered a spectacular sunlight bust through the clouds. The light on the sea is magical and the blue of boat has become very vibrant. Well seen the spectacle of nature. Well done.
nikkitta (17066) 2011-02-20 17:45
Incredible good definition of colors in boat and water
Like the composition in diagonal with the boat at the FG
Creative shot, TFS

Salam Mas Abmdsudi,
Photo yang sangat bagus sekali, dengan BG yang sempurna sepertinya disatu sisi awan yang gelap dan disisi yang lain ada sinar matahari, dramatic sekali. Dan saya suka dengan warna perahu yang sangat kontras jernih sekali, berikut juga dengan warna pasir yang basah dan yang kering... pemandangan yang superb! Congrats!
Thanks for sharing.

A beautiful seascape capture, love the way you presented it. Fantastic striking colors and wonderful contrasts and exposure! Great image!
Thanks for sharing.
ManuMay (36141) 2011-02-20 22:52
Hi again Abmdsudi!
Superbly seen this colours play at sunset, with sun rays coming and giving good colours contrasts, excellent definition and point of view to compose, PP treatment is also very good!!
Wanda1 (15142) 2011-02-21 0:20
The boat is very well placed in your composition so that we can give all our attention to its fine colours and form. Nice that you have included a sliver of the sea and horizon with the golden hues of the setting sun.
danos (97479) 2011-02-21 0:33
great the presentation of the resting boats on the sandy beach,with the brilliant light as falling on, brings out the details of them.I like the clarity and the sharpness of the image, as the reflections on the surface of the sea,making the image even more attractive.Well done.
SWEETFREEDOM (24621) 2011-02-21 2:17

Three lovely elements on these picture;
The boat with nice colors, sea and reflection are very nice, the beach and white small waves care for a excellent image.
Colors and subject, are pleasant for look at.
Sharpness and clarity be superb.
Composition and presentation are very well. TFS.

Charo (51212) 2011-02-21 15:03
A classical composition, very attractive and a very special light, that highlights the colors of the boats and water.
Excellent framing and details.
AKITA (15125) 2011-02-21 17:25
a beautiful picture of the very dramatic situation and scenery,
fore vivid colored boat and back sun-rays & reflections on the sea are mysteriously contrasted and composed in this view, like one scene in stimulating story,
warm light on cool seascape is wonderful indeed,
thank you for your excellent shot,
janusz2054 (2) 2011-02-21 23:35
Nice view of this boat, good depth on the horizon with a beautiful sunlight in the sky .well done.
gildasjan (43538) 2011-02-22 10:40
Excellent le cadrage de cette barque et quelle superbe lumière pour éclairer cette composition !
Bravo et bonne journée
delpeoples (57666) 2011-02-22 22:14
This shot is spectacular, a real masterpiece of light and colour. The boat at the far left of the frame is well-positioned and the rays of sun are the cherry on the cake. A top quality photo.
TFS and I wish you a lovely day
Atousa (7131) 2011-02-23 9:03
The resting boat is well placed in the framing n the colors are really eye catching.. I like the rays of light seen in the BG; seems something like a storm is going to happen.. beautiful details in the FG.. a nice capture.. tfs
Best regards, Atousa
kato (11630) 2011-02-25 1:51
Well composed, excellent color tone and a good seaside scenery! You catch two boats that lies in the beach from a good angle, so one is main boat with three colors at center and another is old ones at right side.
It's impressive for sand's color with three density. And, light that pours down over sea draws out a good effect for the whole as well as fishing net at left-middle, I think.
macjake (67534) 2011-02-26 21:10
a very beautiful photo, with vibrant colors, and the blue seems to compliment tunisia's culture.
i like how the photo seems to climb higher, due to the positioning of the horizon line.
the suns rays are another key feature...overall a beautiful scene.
jafadabret (56501) 2011-02-27 7:48
C'est une très belle photo. J'aime la composition avec la barque idéalement placée. La lumière du soir donne au ciel et à la mer un éclat très fort. La couleur bleue de la barque est superbe.
Kielia (24077) 2011-02-27 10:23
I like the mood of this image a lot - and the colors are also very beautiful. Very well working POV on this charming place by the sea. What a wonderful and nicely composed impression. My compliments!

This is a great shot of this colorful boat. The positioning of the boat is nice and the angle adds depth and a sense of direction for the shot. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has fine sharpness.
Robert1969 (7160) 2012-11-26 2:42
A picture with a lots of beautiful elements.
It has a lots of warm and bright colors.
The picture has nice (color) layers (sand -
water - sky)and this with the diagonal
lines of the boats creates a nice depth.
Composition and light management are
excellent. The light from the heaven is
a very nice extra.
In short: a picture that can so in a
book, or calendar.
adidas5nb (5743) 2013-04-30 19:36

elenimavrandoni (0) 2013-07-18 13:03
when I see your pictures, I like to write poems, I absorb the colors and I travel through your images far away... where this place is, daydreaming of journeys, loving the sand, the sky, the waves,admiring the glamour of the simplicity, respecting the world I´m in...and giving thanks to you for capturing priceless moments..
