The harbour wall at Kaštel Lukšić in Kaštelanski Zaliv (Kastela Bay), Croatia.
We had moored up against the harbour wall (no tides to speak of, so not a problem), and I was sitting on the cabin roof enjoying a beer, when these three girls walked past going out to the end of the breakwater. There was no way back apart from the way they had gone, so I grabbed my camera, and waited patiently for them to return. Sure enough, after sitting watching the water, and no doubt discussing matters of import, for some minutes, they duly retraced their steps. I was ready for them, gave them a cheery (I hope!) wave, and shot off a couple of frames. They didn't seem to mind, and even smiled back in an indulgent, forbearing way; but they didn't wave back. Probably wondering what the dodgy old man in the boat was up to...

This is a fine photo with nice girls who are nicely placed and wearing nice colours. You were lucky to have such a great sky and perfect light. Along with the beer you must have had a great time.

Great shot, this is like an ad come to life, the scene is full of energy and vitality and the girls seem very happy with life. Perfect composition and as mentioned, how lucky to get that excellent sky too!

Perhaps they were concentrating too hard on their footing, to wave back. Other wise it could have been ... 'And if one young lady should accidentally fall, there'd be two young ladies walking on a wall'!
It is a great shot.
Perfectly composed, wonderful sharpness and, yet, still maintaining a sense of movement.
Have a great day,

Hello Will, Charming picture of these three nice girls walking. It it was just a one old woman it wouldn't be so attractive. Very pleasant colourful shot, well noticed and beautifully presented.

Perfect timing for the girls' hands and legs to be in almost exactly the same position. Photographer's patience well rewarded! It's one of those happy countries where people don't (yet) mind to be photographed by strangers.
Lovely weather but what really makes me envious is your "sitting on the cabin roof..." sentence. :-)

Hi Will. Three girls. Summertime, blue sky. The photo is a real eye-catcher. Best composition, light and colors.

As always, I'm late watching the gallery:)! This is a very good moment, specially because of the good light and beautiful sky. Funny how they walk, like in a parade and the first one is watching you:)! I like the wind blowing their hair! Very well captured!

Colors, exposure, sharpness, chosen pov and composition really pleased me!
