Good morning John,
This is yet another beautiful photograph from your archives. You've kept this one a secret for over three years!
Again, your composition is excellent with the lines of the water's edges leading us nicely into the frame and with all elements of the picture pleasingly placed. Lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and, as always, exquisite details and sharpness.
An interesting note too.

Very fine atmosphere along the Ghent canals. I like the colors and the wonderful sunny day.
Have a good week ahead.

This is a very attractive, well-composed image with nice autumn colours in the foliage on the riverbank.

magnificent composition showing not only how beautiful town is Ghent,but also showing perfectly its union with the water.It looks really like the whole life goas along these canals.
I like also your carefully chosen POV combined with outstanding quality and lovely,vivid colors.

picture postcard shot this and full of beautiful autumnal tones. A real sense of the tranquillity of the season and of course captured superbly. Wonderful!
Enjoy a good week - B.
holmertz (45297) 2013-12-09 3:14
Another very fine composition with nice details and good light. The boats make the view interesting and lively, as well as adding colours.
Royaldevon (33387) 2013-12-09 3:16
I thought this was a recent photograph, as we have been having much warmer weather than last year but, I see, it was taken three years ago.
It is a really well composed shot, where the canal is the consummate guide and the f/g barge leads the way nicely. The colours on the trees are a real bonus! They are so attractive and seem to embrace the canal either side of the barges.
The reflections on the water are the crowning glory.
Have a lovely day,
Noel_Byrne (27440) 2013-12-09 4:26
this is a really lovely composition on this marina, showing us the boats, the water but also a very nice slice of the skyline of the city. The more I see of this place in your gallery the more I want to go and visit this beautiful city for myself.
Thanks as always
jacquest (18871) 2013-12-09 4:33
This is a very nice view of the river and the curve gives deepness. It is nice to see the colored boats and the touch of autumn colors in the trees. The good light adds to the composition.
pierrefonds (60434) 2013-12-09 4:34
The length of the canal is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the boats. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
Sergiom (67528) 2013-12-09 5:16
Un très beau tournant dans la rivière qui nous offre une perspective très spéciale sur la ville. Les péniches sont très belles et apportent de jolies couleurs. Le ciel est très beau avec tous ces nuages.
Corry (4508) 2013-12-09 6:24
Une belle perspective sur ce port de plaisance. Les belles couleurs d'automne ajoutent à la composition. Bonne profondeur. Très bien fait.
Nicou (130203) 2013-12-09 8:44
quelle compo et iamge sueprbe vue avec ces beaux arbres et les bâteaux qui se croisent ce mur quelle couleur et msie en valeur fantastique.
Bravo et amitié
Gigidusud (18065) 2013-12-09 8:56
Beautiful composition with nice autumn colors and peaceful atmosphere. Well done!
Have a nice week,
ourania (36472) 2013-12-09 9:30
a very lovely and lively place, only 5 minutes from the city centre. I like very much the way the perspective carries several interesting focal points and takes us all the way to the hints of the urban setting in the background. There are very fine textures and lovely bright colours that make the view look natural and vivid. The water has been rendered more interesting by the reflections and the sky is full of large shifting clouds. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
saxo042 (37694) 2013-12-09 10:14
Ghent really seems to be a very attractive and pleasant city. Here you show us a very peaceful and calm view with a beautiful view over the river.
dta (71461) 2013-12-09 10:18
Hello John ,
Une image plaisante et très bien composée , avec de jolies couleurs d'automne et un très beau ciel .
ktanska (25907) 2013-12-09 11:16
Very nice colour variation on those trees. And the river boats add special character to this river view. Half cloudy sky looks good too.
cornejo (35905) 2013-12-09 11:21
Hi John, very good view of this interesting and beautiful scene of daily life in the canal in Ghent, nicely captured by a great pov in this great and beautiful photography. Interesting picture with good sharpness, depth, light and color. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good evening and happy start to the week.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.
yquem46 (38750) 2013-12-09 11:26
nothing sophisticated here, just a beautiful daily life scenery in Ghent worked up with much care so as to have all ingredients, compo, light, colors, sharpness, clarity .... at their best
A very pleasant result
have a nice evening
PaulVDV (24431) 2013-12-09 11:37
Je zal het wel gek vinden maar het heeft vrij lang geduurd vooraleer ik wist dat er in de stad Gent ook een jachthaven te vinden was. Van op de straten en pleinen van de stad, heb je niet meteen de indruk dat er zoveel water aanwezig is om er ook een marina te hebben. Als buitenstaander in Gent dan toch niet.
Op deze foto is het water nadrukkelijk aanwezig en dat geeft meteen een totaal ander beeld van de stad.
Het vele groen langs de waterkant - hier dan in prachtige herfsttinten - straalt iets uit van rust en gemoedelijkheid.
Er hangen verschillende soorten wolken in de lucht maar het is geen dreigend sfeerbeeld. Het licht is prachtig en bezorgt mooie tinten op zowel voor- als achtergrond.
Beste groeten, Paul
Romano46 (18472) 2013-12-09 13:06
le Fiandre e il suo paesaggio sono uno dei tuoi soggetti preferiti anche perchè lo conosci molto bene.
Anche in questa una bella composizione nella quale acqua, terra e cielo si integrano a perfezione sia nei colori che nella varietà di soggetti che interagiscono perfettamente tra loro.
Ciao e buona serata
lousat (82684) 2013-12-09 14:14
Salut John,en effect cette ville offre beaucoup des opportunites,une nouvelle tres interessante et riche composition,avec les couleurs de l'automne capturees dans la meilleure lumiere,mes compliments et belle journee',Luciano
hidibyendu (875) 2013-12-09 14:30
Good morning John.
You are a master. This is such a simple but such a magnificently taken. The colors of the trees, boats are excellent. Good depth. Very nicely framed and composed.
Periko (3865) 2013-12-09 15:11
Hi John, this is a good combination of nature and architecture. I like the boats on these calm waters.
Alco (7131) 2013-12-09 19:34
Beautiful fall picture of that marina.All these boats add nice colors to your picture.Great DOF and sharp picture.Very well done.
Have a nice day.
subhendu_bagchi (25975) 2013-12-10 0:22
a beautiful frame here as always. Like the boat in the river. Great warm colour tone. Superb clarity and sharpness. Excellent composition. Tfs.
Graal (100124) 2013-12-10 3:23
unpleasantly, that you had an accident and now you suffer. I wish this a great deal health.
Very nice picture and autumnal view here. Interesting Marina Lindenlei. Good POV and composition. Photo I like.
Have a nice day.
kato (11630) 2013-12-10 6:29
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the calm winding canal which is flowing in the city, some boats anchored to the canal and trees dyed autumnal tints. It's also impressive in historical architecture at left side. Here looks like the peaceful location with the settled atmosphere. The whole is managed well by a good arrangement and bright/beautiful color combination. And, the reflection projected to the canal draws out a good effect.
rychem (28139) 2013-12-10 8:37
Beautiful scene on the river, great composition and wonderful autumn colors, compliments
Fis2 (90111) 2013-12-10 8:52
Interesting city Gandawa!
I like POV and composition.
Have a nice evening
danos (90413) 2013-12-10 10:37
very nice the view of this section of the canal with the marina in Ghent to makes the image so inviting and unique.I like the light and the colour management as the beauty of the place.
boa (6433) 2013-12-10 12:26
a good result from your Saturday afternoon stroll! I can see why you took this picture. Water and boats are interesting environments in my opinion, add some beautiful autumnal colors and you have a lovely scene.
Well done my friend!
Have a nice evening.
mcmtanyel (16719) 2013-12-10 17:45
The bend in the river makes the composition all the more interesting. The colors are lovely. Thanks for sharing this out of your archives.
fabbs99 (16817) 2013-12-10 22:02
Spectacular view of the meandering river.The boats and the mansion in the BG create a magic scenery over here.Great shot with perfect sharpness and clarity.TFS.
mirosu (15302) 2013-12-10 22:32
Already 300? I'm surprised. Thanks for reminding me.
You have posted an excellent photo. The perfectly lit white ship and the large trees behind are the main focal point of this photo. There is a great use of depth of field to hold the viewer in the foreground ship and the water with nice reflections as well as the other ships, buildings and the nice sky in BG, and the excellent lighting conditions have allowed for very good color saturation. The overall impact is very strong. Very well done.
jemaflor (89405) 2013-12-10 23:06
A composition well balanced with all these details, boat, canal, trees ..., pleasant light capture and colors.
ikeharel (63019) 2013-12-11 8:17
Beautiful town marina view on a bright day, John.
Autumn colors and contrast acheived with the boats along the banks, and the DOF collected, is very charming sight.
Cheers for a well chosen perspective.
jcpix (13814) 2013-12-11 16:17
Plenty of color and interest along the river here, but the clouds steal the show for me...this is a great example of when to include a larger portion of the sky to enhance the atmosphere. The string of colors from the trees accent those big white clouds quite nicely. You sure have a great way of setting the mood through your images, this certainly appears like another peaceful and welcoming place for a slow walk...enough to soak up some intermittent sun and listen to the gentle sounds by the river. Lovely!
photoray (13686) 2013-12-11 18:42
Your Ghent river scene certainly stimulates one to either tour by boat, or stroll along the picturesque river.
carlo62 (38773) 2013-12-12 0:06
la luce e i colori autunnali creano una bella atmosfera intorno a questi battelli.
Piacevole il leggero riflesso che aumenta la luminosità e il colore.
Bel cielo, piuttosto drammatico, ma senza esagerare.
mkamionka (32521) 2013-12-12 5:51
very picturesque scene here. I like the bright colors of autumn, the light is pleasant too making the picture truly eye catching.
Beautiful day, well captured,
Kielia (24073) 2013-12-12 9:09
this shot has a great scenery. It makes me want to go there myself. Nice composition with the tourist boat leading the eye to the left side of the frame. The beautiful sky makes the image very attractive. My compliments!
aleXundar (1256) 2013-12-12 10:24
Again a wonderful autumn in your refreshing image.
The colors, clarity and composition --- wonderful as usual. A superb photo you have chosen for us from your vast archive. Thanks a lot.
With warm regards,
imageme (1790) 2013-12-12 14:42
Hi John, Very nice capture moment of this boats on the river. Green trees and white buildings make a good contrast. Wonderful composition with natural lights. It is always nice to see reflections in the water because it adds life to the image. Thank very much
josepmarin (57947) 2013-12-13 3:06
I can enjoy the beautiful colours of the beginning of the autumn in these trees, in a pleasant view on the marina and of the city, under a sky beautifully decorated with a few very aesthetical clouds.
A perfect management of the light, and a high chromatic quality, make this composition great.
An excellent work, my friend.
Buin (42362) 2013-12-13 10:50
What a colourful photo and what an enjoyable sight! The autumn leaves here are a special attraction in the scene as the vivid sky is. A worth visiting place.
Greetings from all the day grey and cold Siegen!

The enormous beauty of the canal, with the charm of the boats and the preciousness of the abundant trees, with those beautiful autumn colors, a splendid sky that adds great beauty to the whole.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Enjoy a good weekend.
abmdsudi (46936) 2013-12-20 23:55
Excellent scenic capture of the marina with wonderful touch of autumn colours & soft effects, lending to an overall discrete & delightful photographic impact. Two areas I love most; the sky and the wonderful lush trees and the compo work really indeed really where all the supporting elements function to your favour while the boats and sheen on water draw the eye in. As usual your usual flawless work flow is applauded, its beautiful scene full of vigour, Congrats
Miguel82 (26543) 2013-12-21 11:55
