previously, this deserted island has been shown from far away, from the almost luxuriant area of Krk Island (just in comparison...), here & here... now we are in the harbor of Biska, very touristic with a huge beach and a 'lunar' landscape all around, at least it was my impression...
here I included the odd lighthouse to balance the composition with the people on the right, kids which were playing to dive in the water.
i guess this island in background is named Prvic

very nice and tender capture!!!
Compo is simply perfect... also the sharpness!
The subject is so touching and reminds me when I was a child... and it was Summer...

This is a very nice image, beuatiful light, good composition with the people on the right looking into the image. Great sharpness and clarity, looks warm and inviting.

Bonjour JC ,
C'est superbe . Ces enfants qui se détachent si bien sur fond de montagne et de mer bleu . Le petit phare équilibre la composition et ajoute un plan suppémentaire . Belle netteté , aussi .

A nice view well composed and pleasant with the children in th foreground. But perhaps also a sad one as this island was probably forested in the past and human activity destroyed thsi and let erosion play its game...

a nice evening light going along with a very relaxed scene. Summer ! Holidays !

une vue trés agréable ou la netteté est sans faille avec une grande profondeur dans le cadrage, lumière nickel

i like because it`s very close from a movie poster. a felinni movie.
jplebrun (21208) 2009-01-09 16:38
superbe image de ces enfants dans un moment tranquille, ce qui est rare normalement pour de jeunes garçons, en admiration devant cet ile.

Il y a de ces iles désertiques en Croatie : l'exemple même e, est l'ile de Pag. D'ailleurs ne serais ce pas celle ci ?

They seem to be having all the fun whether the landscape is lunar or solar it doesnt seem to matter much to them!!! Nice balanced and well spread composition
ChrisJ (91200) 2009-01-10 4:42
The brown skinned children contrast well against the blue water in the bg. Good sharpness & flattened perspective from the zoom. Tfs!

An interesting shot. My first impression was "How do we get over there without Mom?"
Nicely composed and well exposed.
lestans (16896) 2009-01-10 9:24
I know these islands, so I know very well that they have two different landascapes: wind is the artist that makes such places!
i like here the composition, people in the foreground seem to come out of the photo; good aso to put the lighthouse, something "man made" in this hard place.

Ciao JC, beautiful group of people and wonderful landscape, great light and wonderful colors, very well done, ciao Silvio

Really fantastic compositon. You have nice deep DOF here which allows us to appreciate the incredible scenery. The boat on the left and the kids on the right create a nice counterbalance which makes for a very good, even composition.

Hi JC, great light and sharpness, and I particularly like the mood of this one. The little boy on the right with a starnge grown-up's body, the girl looking away, the barren islandandthe unusual military-looking lighthouse all contribute to the quirky atmsophere of this shot. Nice one!
giorgimer (34642) 2009-01-13 12:27
I remember the beauty of this island, you had a very good idea for this shot, particularly because of the guys in the FG.
Very well done!
holmertz (31226) 2009-01-14 4:52
The lighthouse isn't the most beautiful I've seen, but it serves its purpose for the composition well. A very attractive picture, conveying a strong atmosphere of summer.
CatherineD (4864) 2009-01-14 13:10
C'est superbe d'avoir placé les enfants devant le paysage et dans leurs différentes attitudes. La lumière du soir est très belle et l'île vraiment mystérieuse (volcanique?). Bonne idée aussi d'avoir inclu le phare dans la composition. Un bonne vue panoramique.

Hi Jonathan. A lovely image of Adriatic Summer.Reminds me of my childhood when my friends and I were in the water most of the day. How i miss the blue, clear sea.Nicely balanced shot and a restful mood.Beautiful light makes the island stand out as if in bas-relief. Regards. Klaudio.
jmdias (48315) 2009-01-31 14:08
amazing image. I liked the beauty of the background, that texture of the hills.. The light house and the children are perfect shown here, excellent framing and light. well done, very beautiful

Very good composition, that shows us a peculiar landscape enriched by the human element. I like the inclusion of the lighthouse at the left and the boys as a interesting focal point. I like also how the low evening sunlight cast long shadows. Very evocative,

Hey great Picture... Remindes off good old young times with no worries:))))
