After 3 days walks in the Basque country uphill and downhill, a small rest on the Hendaye beach with the square buildings of Fontarrabie in Spain.
I will be absent for 3 weeks, visiting family and friends (an english TE meeting is forecast during this period), so no post, comment or WS during that time. Back on June 8th

Il me semblait bien avoir reconnu la plage d'Hendaye, avec les immeubles de Fontaraby, si reconnaissables.
Cette photo est bien composée avec le placement des différentes silhouettes sur l'avant plan de la plage.

this is like a lesson on careful composition: from the couple on the bottom right to the couple in the sea, from the half cut of parallel line of shore to the boxy blocks on the coast. my favourite is of course "the crescent" adding almost an abstract feeling. have a nice trip to the neighbours :)

mi piace molto questa composizione, mi piacciono le persone sparse per questa grande spiaggia e il paracadute che contrasta con i palazzi sullo sfondo.
Buona vacanza a te e buon divertimento.

this is a wonderful composition, the scenery and its atmosphere are very appealing and the implied diagonal connecting the kite with the surfer adds dynamism to a composition that already has great depth and sense of movement. I like very much the placement and movement of the people, they lead our attention around the beach and make us realize how vast it is. The distant background fills the frame in an interesting way without distracting from what's happening on the beach. The chromatic harmony is pleasing and elegant. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

nice scenery on the beach. I like the silhouettes of surfers and kite. Amazing modern architecture of buildings in BG. Photo I like.
Have a nice evening.

Surf sailing is also popular in Southern California. Great action shot with good lighting and nice details. I like the compression effect of the long lens. Well done, tfs.

Bien vu ces silhouettes bien réparties sur la photo avec cette voile et les surfers, le fond à priori peu photogénique avec son effet de répétition donne un effet original.

Welcome back cher Clodo
Good to see you back here on TE. I trust you enjoyed your TE meeting in England.
The Basque Country has always fascinated me, and also the French towns nest that border. This is very attractive, a symphony of blues and greys. The surfers have been defined brilliantly. I like the haze in the BG and the para glider makes the icing on the cake.

an excellent composition. I like its understated graphical quality and also the colour palette. The surfers bottom right anchor the image.
