A few weeks ago I was in the beautiful city of Angers on a business trip. The river Maine runs through Angers and feed into the Loire five kilometers away. Luckily I had a bike with me and could cycle along the Maine and Loire rivers and witness scenes like this. It is Angers centre in the background.
Technically I improved contrast and colour saturation before resizing.

It's a pleasure and a surprise to see you and your work at TE. I have some nostalgy of not receiving your fine critiques and well done opinion to my work and also to other TE members. This is a great one of you very well seen, with a great composition and a nice shadow light contrast, and with the silhouettes od he fisherman. Possible by resize factors you have some disturbing pixels in the upper frame. Possible also with a noise reduction sotware and after wit a small increase of HUE you could have a better result. But the work is so fine and som is not necessary to make negliciable corrections. For me is a must to se you and post now.
Best to you and congratulations.

That's a beautiful place for fishing. I like the way you have compose this picture with the fisherman in the dark on the right and the trees on the left full of colors. TFS

Nice shot with those relaxing fishermen along the river. I like the trees at left as well as the view of the city in the background. Good work!

Very long ago but very welcome again, thanks for comment, I always take into account the comment on my photos. The silhouettes of the two fishermans is a lovely contrast against the blue water. Splendid autumn colours in the background

Hi Per, welcome back mate. A nice relaxed scene with the fishing guys by the river, where the back-/sidelight came out quite well to accentuate the seasonal colors of the riverside foliage, and to show the to men as silhouettes. Nice depth as the eye follows the river towards the old-town buildings in the back. Nice capture.

Hej Per - Et nydeligt komponeret billede - jeg kan godt lide lystfiskerne som modvægt til den gyldne skov - Fint arbejde fra din hånd og FZ20.

A very calm and relaxing scenery, Per; the light is very good, but I also like the colours of the trees, the perspective and the position of the fishermen, at right. Good work!
