A motor-schooner enters Hvar harbour, with Otok Gališnik beyond. We had moored up here a couple of hours before, and were taking a walk round the shore, when I saw this yacht approaching. The harbour was pretty full already, but I suspect she had a berth booked in advance. The lady posing in the foreground was an added bonus. Or is she in fact the focus of the photograph?

A great capture, the lady cooling off with a paddle in the sea gives added dimension to the shot. Good POV.

A nice place for sure, but the bonus is this young lady in white summer dress feeling the sea temperature. the position of her head leads our eye to the moored schooner.

This is a wonderful postcard, is a scenery with marvelous details and a lot of summer. Whole composition is like a movie scenery. Fascinating!
Have a nice evening,

The combination of the view and the lady makes an excellent image, I could easily see this as the cover of a book, Iikely a romance novel with the way the woman is dressed and gazing out to sea like this. Avert beautiful composition with lots of nice points of interest.

These lady lies perfect in the focus of the camera.
But how you took the boat and the background also very nice.
We get excellent depth and perspective with with the sea.
Colours and presentation are very well.
Excellent composition and good presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

I can't make up my mind if this is a photo of a woman standing in the water with a boat and a small island in the background, or a photo of a boat and a small island with a woman standing in the water in the foreground. It's great when a picture offers such possibilities of interpretations. Actually, it's a very well composed and totally attractive picture with interesting ingredients, good colours and a nice invisible diagonal line between the woman and the central part of the boat. I just wonder why she is standing in the water dressed like that, clearly not prepared for a swim.

Hello Will, I was only once on the sail boat and I am sure it was the last one. When I didn't see the coast I lied like dead. But with many islands around on Adritic it must be pleasant. But I am not interested so much in boats, so the main subject is for me this lovely romantic girl.

For me she is the focus of the photo because of how well she is positioned and the gorgeous light and water surrounding her. She is also very sharp as are the rocks and water. I would have cropped out the boat but then I am not a sailor like you!
Kind Regards, Ann

Yes, of course she most certainly is! The boat and the land, trees and sky are lovely but surely this young lady is the centre of attention in this photograph!
Whether the arrival and placement of the young lady was by good fortune or by very careful planning is quite irrelevant as you have composed this photograph superbly well with all the elements nicely arranged throughout the frame. And having the lady more brightly lit in the foreground as compared to the boat and land which are in relative shade all gives a wonderful depth to the image.
Lovely light and colours, bang-on exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

The lady looking at the boat makes all the difference here. Her pose and her hat are just great. I also like the movement and textures of the water. You captured the moment really well.
