Nets drying on the quayside, Saint-Guénolé (Breton: Gwenole), Finistère, Brittany.
Saint Guénolé is the main fishing port of the Penmarc'h Commune, itself the southwesternmost township of Pays Bigouden. The harbour of Saint-Guénolé has a entrance channel opening due west, pretty dangerous in rough weather. It is protected by two granite peninsulas : Krugen in the South, and Conq in the northwest. Krugen is connected to the mainland by a sandy isthmus; Conq is connected to the shore by an artificial embankment itself protected by concrete blocks to better break the waves. The rocky granite coast is called the "Côte Sauvage" in St. Guénolé. Yet once in the harbour, all is serene.

The thing that struck me immediately on seeing this is the neatness of the fishing nets Will. No confused jumble here but everything laid out in rows. By the looks of the central portion of your composition the fishermen have got brand new nets. I like your approach which takes advantage of the neatness of the nets in the diagonal placement. The FG looks a little more carefree with the 3 red floats. Warm regards Rosemary

This is so colourful, simplistic yet intriguing, who would think fishing nets could be turned into such a splendid image.

This is a subject that photographers love but very often the images end up looking muddled. However, your picture is clean with excellent perspective and diagonal lines. Great colour too.
Very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann

An interesting note and a very fine graphic image too - and all the better for having been so skilfully scanned from a fifteen year old "AgBr" photograph.
An excellent composition, the line of yellow floats almost appearing to disappear off to infinity at top left. Very cleverly executed too with a predominance of yellow floats but with three bright red ones right bang in the foreground to attract our attention.
Fabulous colours, perfect exposure and your usual exquisite details and sharpness throughout.

Hi Will. The nets of the fishermen are a beautiful colored eye-catching. I only say: well seen and presented. Instructive supplementary text.

Excellent photography to create such a colourful composition out of such a simple thing as a fishing net. I Like the contrasting colours and the long perspective created by the colourful floats. Well seen and taken, thanks for sharing.
delpeoples (52289) 2014-02-25 5:28
I seem to remember a similar composition recently posted by Ann. Fishing nets are always a compelling subject and I like the bright colours and perspective you have created by shooting it on the diagonal. Excellent depth of field and sharpness, aswell as having captured the intriguing textures these nets always present.
Thanks for sharing, have a lovely day

Good play with the 3 bold colors and the straight lines of the nets contrasting with the rounded buoys .

una foto che viene da lontano, sono passarti quasi venti anni, ma le belle foto non hanno età e questa è sempre molto attuale. Prospettiva e colori sono eccellenti e il risultato è una bella immagine tutta da osservare con piacere.

A simple subject and a well thought composition! I like the low pov, the combination of colours and shapes and also the diagonal lines. It's a good shot!

We often see piles of nets on TE but more scarcely spread on the ground. Great vivid colours and sharpness. Thanks a lot,
