The sea in the gap between the quay of Lakki and the long array of boats moored there. About ten of them were the catamarans that had arrived at noon from Didim, Turkey, on a short tour to neighbouring greek islands and recieved on Leros by the Nautical Club of the island. The Nautical Club of Leros, the Italo-Hellenic Cultural Association of leros and the Marina of Didim had collaborated a few months earlier for the organization of an international sailing race.

A nicely composed abstract composition; the mooring lines bring a good touch of graphism to the shot. I like the lighting and shimmering reflections.

Hi Ourania ,
Well done,very nice composition of the shimmering reflections from the moored boats. Nice colours and lighting but what really makes the shot is the mooring ropes zigzagging across the frame. Nice one.

Sensational view when the awesome water reflections, those squiggly lines and certain ripple patterns are making wonderful sparkling abstract effect that looks like an oil painting and the light makes this subtle and intricate. Compositionally it is superb, but what is even more impressive is your absolutely brilliant handling of the exposure and dynamic range. The well tensioned mooring ropes are nicely oriented as strong focal holding the eye focused into the scene and fractions of the boats serve as good ref. I love the fact that actually there are only three basic colours to play with but the outcome is a total surprise, and the base deep steely blue creates such a strong eye puller there. Beautiful piece of work and an enjoyable image. Congrats

Tu as su bien saisir le moment.Les reflets sont magnifiques dans les eaux calmes du petit port de pêche. J'aime l'effet que les cordages apportent et la très belle luminosité de l'ensemble.

You live in a place where the combination of clear water, many boats and good sunshine has blessed you with many opportunities to capture fine reflections in the harbours. You have done it before and you do it again. This is another fine composition, this time maybe most of all characterized by the diagonal lines created by the white wires in the lower part and the brown wires in the upper part.
I also again notice with great pleasure, as a matter of fact, when reading your note how Greeks and Turks nowadays seem to enjoy a friendly companionship without much thought of the dark past. I wish that old wounds would always heal that way.

Hello Ourania - Superbly captured, I do so admire your ability to compose this style of shot. I know through trying myself, it is a lot more difficult than one would think. Here the balance of light, contrast, colour and line is eye-catching and successful. I love the richness of pattern here. Warm regards Rosemary

A beautiful play of rippling light and color, all criss crossed with the ropes creating a scene that is perfect for your title. As I always say, I am amazed at how clean and blue the water is, with boats there I would expect it to be stained with oil. Wonderful to see it isn't!
All the best
jacquest (16408) 2013-08-13 11:06
This is a magic moment captured with great art. The light, the colors and the sharpness make an image of excellent quality. If I look closely at the reflections on the water, I can see so many different figures ranging from the beek of a bird to en embryo of a small fish. Thank you for sharing and also for the nice comments you made earlier on one of my photos.

Well seen thes edetails with these reflections on the sea, good brightness and aaaaaalso effect with these ropes, tfs.
carlo62 (19421) 2013-08-13 14:13
i riflessi sono veramente belli e proprio per questo non riesco a decidermi se tutte quelle corde vadano bene oppure era meglio il riflesso senza niente intorno.
Nell'indecisione, opto per la tua scelta, probabilmente, con le corde, la foto crea più interesse.
mcmtanyel (5249) 2013-08-13 18:28
What did you do, you threw beige paint in the sea, didn't you? I thought so, caught you in the act!
PS. If I may ask, what is the origin of your last name?
bukitgolfb301 (32638) 2013-08-13 20:12
Hi dear Ourania, sorry for my late reaction.

Thanks a lot and have a good day! Takero
jjcordier (67226) 2013-08-13 23:48
Ces reflets composent un beau tableau moderne. Jolie prise!
dkmurphys (42493) 2013-08-14 3:24
Another spectacular detail from the port. The reflections are just great, well taken.
mesutilgim (73024) 2013-08-14 13:40
Hello dear Ourania,
Wonderfull capture of this game of light, color and reflections on waters surface !
TFS and best regards
tyro (15711) 2013-08-14 15:00
Yes, the myriad of crossing ropes is complicated but they stand out perfectly against the gorgeous reflections on the water. Those reflections remind me so much of swirls of paint on an artist's palette!
This is a picture to gaze at and savour - all those wonderful abstract shapes of bright light and colour against a background of deep blue, and yet we are brought back to reality by the clever inclusion of just very small parts of two boats.
Gorgeous light, fabulous vibrant colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness. Very well seen and very well taken!
fabbs99 (11126) 2013-08-14 22:19
Lovely color pattern of the reflection in waters.Very attractive capture in great contrasts and colors. Well done.TFS.
delpeoples (48634) 2013-08-16 6:36
Un capolavoro in oro e blu. Le linee, i riflessi ed i colori luminosi sono fantastici. Mi piace particolarmente il taglio stretto, dando quel tocco artistico ed astratto.
Un abbraccio e bella giornata
nikkitta (8951) 2013-08-16 16:45
Hola Ourania, thanks again for remember my day
Reflects and reflects arranged in a creative way that seems an abstract painting and a very beautiful one with the dark blue of the sea as the background
Great color contrast
Have a wonderful week end
adores (30831) 2013-08-31 15:07
Another really beautiful reflection! The pattern and colours are wonderful and I like the idea of including the ropes. Different and very good!
s_lush (16048) 2013-09-01 5:12
The artistically distorted optical reflection in the seawater is my favorite subject in your pictures. In this one inclusion of the the originals makes the composition looking even more interesting and aesthetic. A highly colorful and attractive image!

Ουρανία, εχεις μια υπέροχη συλλογή απο αντανακλάσεις στην θάλασσα και όλες είναι ξεχωριστές για τα χρώματα τους και τίς αποχρώσεις όπως και για τον ιδιαίτερο φωτισμό τους!
