Eckernförde is a summer resort on the Baltic coast of Schleswig-Holstein, about 65 miles north of Hamburg and 35 south of the Danish border. The name means 'Acorn-firth'. In the 19th century this city was one of the largest fishing towns on the Baltic Sea with a huge fish-processing industry. Smokehouse chimneys dominated the skyline and one third of the town‘s population of 6,000 then was dependent on this industry. Today the fishing fleet consists of just a handful of boats since this industry steadily lost importance. It is in the tourist area that the harbor is now thriving.
A stroll along the harbor is a must for every visitor. However, it is not only the visitor who feels drawn by the fishing boats, locals too like to inspect the fishermen‘s catches.
Eckernförde is also the oldest spa town in the North, the first spa opened in 1831, the year from which the development of the ever-more important tourist industry dates. The potential in this industry will be exploited to the fullest extent.
The photo shows the harbor with Eckernförde’s landmark, the famous round warehouse (silo), built in 1931.

Hello Harriet - What wonderful light, it has such a good impact on the colours, tones, contrasts and mood of this shot. Beautifully composed and managed, I love the way the boats are placed on the diagonal and are backed by the cylindrical building; what a very well balanced shot. Warm regards Rosemary

ourania (18918) 2013-08-30 7:51
a wonderful, rewarding view of this picturesque northern harbour. I love the way you've arranged so many elements of interest in the frame so that each of them gets its fair share of our attention. Clarity is fantastic and allows us to observe a tremendous amount of details getting deeper into the character of this place. You've managed the special light and the contrasts excellently obtaining beautiful colours and fine textures. Great work, congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

a very colourful atmosphere here. Like your composition. Like the depth you achieved with f/10. Great shot. Very well done. Tfs.
saxo042 (33984) 2013-08-30 8:45
The round silo is nicely positioned in this composition and so is also the red roofs at the side. A nice diagonal line of small boats lead up to this landmark. many attractive colours. The clouds look a bit threatening, did it rain later?
Romano46 (11845) 2013-08-30 10:10
sei stata assente per qualche giorno, ma sei tornata con una bellissima foto, ricca di particolare luminosità e brillantezza di colori, oltre che molto bella per la composizione che valorizza un soggetto assai interessante.
Eccellente anche la nitidezza che valorizza ulteriormente gli splendidi riflessi.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
rbassin (13467) 2013-08-30 10:14
une magnifique photo, bien composée avec ces bateaux allignés dans la diagonale et le bâtiment rouge.
Très belles couleurs, ciel changeant créant une atmosphère agréable.
gildasjan (39622) 2013-08-30 10:20
La composition est soignée et la lumière met bien en valeur tous les éléments de cette image.La partie sombre du ciel donne la bonne touche à cette image.

Guten Tag Harriet,
The circular warehouse reminds me in size and appearance of our Hollywood Capitol Records building.
And your fishing and tour boats are attractive for the variety and coloring.
pajaran (41931) 2013-08-30 11:19
Interesantan tekst o gradu, sa datim podacima ...
Lep pogled na pristaniste sa camcima i stari silos ...
Dobra kompozicija i perspektiva, lepe boje.
Dobar rad, lepo pokazano mesto i trentak sa oblacima koji donose kisu.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje za vikend.
An interesting article about the city, with the given data ...
Nice view of the harbor with boats and old silo ...
Good composition and perspective, beautiful colors.
Good work, nice place and shown trentak with clouds that bring rain.
Good evening and all the best for the weekend.
elenimavrandoni (10063) 2013-08-30 11:29
Harriet, this is a marvelous composition, fantastic setting, very picturesque and beautiful! Great color and light, spectacular sky!!
all the best for the weekend!
holmertz (31516) 2013-08-30 11:48
In this photo you managed to combine a quite interesting architecture with fine and colourful boats, as well as a blue sky and dark clouds. You found a POV from where you could shoot the boats on a diagonal, which benefits most compositions, and at the same time give us a clear view of the old silo. The note gives us an interesting description of the history of Eckernförde.
carlo62 (19701) 2013-08-30 15:04
molto bella questa immagine, c'è un bel contrasto tra le due parti della foto, una più drammatica dell'altra.
Il tutto è ben equilibrato dai colori delle barche e dai riflessi.
thebest (4122) 2013-08-30 21:07
Hello dear Harriet,
I do like your photo's very much - I can tell you love the boats just as much as I do - my father loved the boats & harbours I guess that is where I get it from - the ambience of life on the edge of the harbours docks etc; has such a peaceful relaxing feel about it... I love the reflections in the water & the colours of the vast variety of boats.
Never two photo's are the same... hence one does not tire of looking at these sea-harbour scape images.
jurek1951 (37040) 2013-08-30 22:42
Eine herrliche Stimmung.
emka (64464) 2013-08-30 23:56
Fine composition with so many beautiful details. colourful boats on diagonal, very interesting round building and even lovely bridge in bg. All in beautiful colours and sharpness. Excellent picture.
ikeharel (44279) 2013-08-31 1:07
Selected your position in a perfect POV, Harriet.
I like the skewed angel over the boats anchored, and there was a fine light inspite the cloudy sky.
The big edifice on the other side, a waterhouse(?) is an eyes catching element on photo. Also, good depth down the canal to the left.
Enjoy a nice weekend,
chrisvek (6995) 2013-08-31 6:35
Amazing post with a very well composed image.Great note.I like very much the details and the depth.Nice lightning usage and POV.

Bonsoir, chère Harriet,
Le ciel exprime tout de suite la mise en situation de la composition. L'ombre et la lumière vient baigner cette jolie peinture marine.
L'architecture étonnante en arrière-plan vient conforter l'intérêt d'ensemble.
Très bonne soirée.

Fantastique vue de ce port avec la belle tour burne en fond quelle pureté dans les tons quel cadrage et le reflet des bâteaux sommeilleux.
Bravo et amitié
abmdsudi (32685) 2013-09-01 2:10
Wonderful timely shot full of vibrancy, sublime light and colours that just leaps off the screen, I like the array of colours in them with the boats effectively framed and lead to the famous silo and beautifully shaded by an eye catching skyscape. A captivating water front not lacking of interests around, Congrats.
jhm (128259) 2013-09-01 5:12

Very nice view on the harbour with a very good lights ambiance
Good lights balance.
In these kind of views I always make panoramic stitched pictures to include more field
PiotrF (2380) 2013-09-04 11:01

wolf38 (29126) 2013-09-05 8:37
Hallo Harriet. Um es vorweg zu sagen, das Foto gefällt mir sehr gut, - und ebenso der informative Text. Auch die technische Qualität ist bestens. Es sind so viele Details zu sehen. Das runde Warenhaus ist natürlich der dominierende Blickpunkt. Zusätzlich prima Farben und sehr gutes Licht.
Viele Grüße, Wolfgang.
bayno (18338) 2013-09-06 5:15
I really like the composition, beautiful light and colors, you set well your Camera...obtaining depth and exquisite details, nice reflection too....
Buin (42128) 2013-09-07 11:30
Das kam mir doch gleich bekannt vor ;-) Du hast einen wunderschönen Blickwinkel gewählt, der diese schöne Diagonale der Boote und Pfähle erzeugt. Das herrliche Licht und der z.T. dunkle nd fast dramatische Himmel sind zusätzliche Pluspunkte im Bild. Wirklich sehenswert! Naja, und zum Kommentar muss ich wohl nichts sagen - außer: Klasse!
Grüße aus Westfalen, wo sich der Sommer heute wohl erabschiet hat. Es war ein guter Sommer - nur zu trocken.Ein schönes Wochenende!
fds (6359) 2013-09-07 23:37
ciao dear friend kielia

shevchenko (18725) 2013-09-09 19:42
Nice to see some fishing boats at the harbour although fishing works is less important in nowaday at this city, beautiful local architectures on the bank, the round warehouse is so unique, good pov and good frame to show a charming view that full with relaxing feel, distinct photo, good shoot.
Royaldevon (21655) 2013-09-17 4:17
This is a very busy photograph in contrast to your normal postings.
The boats make an irresistible line from the bottom corner, leading directly to the imposing circular building. (Is this the smoke house?)
You have employed a great dof, with details sharply captured and reflections shimmering in the disturbed water.
Have a great day,
SWEETFREEDOM (19970) 2013-09-20 4:17
interesting notes and view, i like the colored boats and the round warehouse in bg. excellent sharpness.
Cricri (92501) 2013-09-24 7:07
Très belle composition, j'aime la lumière , le ciel mitiger , les bateaux en diagonale et la vue sur le bâtiment, La netteté et les couleurs, très jolie
dip (22130) 2013-09-24 11:22
eine tolle Aufnahme aus Eckernförde!
Ich mag die Klarheit und die gute Schärfe sowie die schönen natürlichen Farben,
der Rundsilo ist der Blickfang im Bild,
ciakgiak (30385) 2013-10-11 12:50
splendidi i colori ed i riflessi, composizione molto efficace e piacevole.
Bellissimo il contrasto col cielo scuro!
Un caro abbraccio
olive224 (2653) 2013-10-21 8:15
Really nice light on this image, i like the round building and the dark sky giving a really dark water to the right of the composition
Kamilutka (3738) 2013-10-23 12:38
very good picture in all terms: perfectly balanced composition and lovely saturated colors. Interesting sky as a background and very well handled light.
Thanks for sharing
delpeoples (48832) 2013-10-27 4:03
Another luminous marine scene. The ripples on the sea show a light breeze blowing across the port and give us a sense of movement. I like the vivid colours and the excellent depth of field, detailing the background architecture so well. An attractive shot.
Angshu (52966) 2013-10-29 7:13
The round warehouse is indeed a very attractive building and seems to stand out for miles. the boats in the FG create a fine perspective and the reflections are really great. Fine clarity & crispness in this shot wth fine colours!
Waylim (23416) 2013-10-30 15:31
This is very nice. I particularly love the pattern of the water and the reflection. Beautiful light with some warm tone but not too strong so everything is nicely exposed but not too bright and the color is deep and rich. Excellent quality with good sharpness and clarity. The composition is really good too. Thanks.
COSTANTINO (44295) 2013-11-05 8:02
what could I say for this dreamy capture
only greetings for this composition
almost perfectly executed
excellent exposure with great details
lovely colors lovely inspiration even
the reflections are perfect
mkamionka (27179) 2013-11-15 13:17
great light here it creates an amazing ambience. I like the contrast of the dark clouds approaching with the well lit foreground. You have composed the picture perfectly with the line of boats making nice diagonal across the frame. The view is so vivid, there is so much color and even the reflections contribute to the rich composition. The silo so unique indeed adds here an point of interest.
