For a fact, kids on the Greek islands learn from early age about the fishing skills.
Superb taken the moment, face expression of the youngster show a careful search around.
Fine technical details on picture, boats in juxtaposition, some of them leisure-crafts and some simple wooden boats. Also, marvelous shining water reflection on close range.
Pleasent to look at,

How very well you have composed this - once again. The rickety-looking jetty and its shadow fill the foreground very nicely and on top of them the boy becomes a good central focus. His activity makes me curious as to weather he found anything. He is completely surrounded by more boats and jetties, all of them offering interesting details, but is very clearly the most important element of the composition. This is the kind of picture that tells a little story, hopefully with a happy ending.

μια καθημερινή σκηνή που βλέπει κάποιος στις Καλοκαιρινές διακοπές με τους πιτσιρικάδες και τις απόχες τους να είναι σε ημερησία διάταξη.
Όμορφη σκηνή με τον νεαρό να ακροβατεί στη λεπτή λωρίδα της παραλίας για να πιάσει το κάτι που θα τον κάνει 'μεγάλο' στην παρέα του.

charming and having its own pleasant atmosphere composition!
Again I´m delighted how you captured the water with its reflections in the FG and generally how excellently and considered you composed the scene.
The boy looking for a fish or sea food.Simple,but how beautiful and evocative!
Wish You a nice evening

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobra kompozicija i perspektiva, lepo pokazano ribarski camci i decak koji lovi rakove.
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepe boje.
Srecan ti lov decace.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view and a second ...

Good time recording and contrast, beautiful colors.
Happy hunting you, boy.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best.

Hi Ourania. So many discoveries for any boy in such a setting and from memory as a boy, for me the sea always had that element of a possible unexpected find, something that it had kept secret, that only you, the child, were to find. After all, the deepest ocean and the widest, in fact a limitless universe, is to be found in a child's mind/imagination.Great moment in time, in a life. Regards. Klaudio.

I hope he was able to catch what he was looking for. A pleasantly busy photograph that captures a slice of everyday life along the harbor, one that I am all to familiar with and of which I cannot have enough. Change the name of that boat to "Rüzgar" (Turkish for Anemos) and you could convince me this was taken at a small town near Bodrum. But wait, it was taken at a small town near Bodrum!

Ουρανία, καβουράκια ψάχνει ο πιτσιρικάς και ισως κοχυλάκια...ετσι μεγάλωσα κι εγω απο παιδί στην Σέριφο πέρναγα ολη μέρα στην θάλασσα με τα άλλα παιδάκια και δεν είχαμε απόχη γι αυτο πιάναμε τα καβούρια με τα χέρια...τι ομορφα χρόνια και η φωτογραφία σου αυτο μου θυμίζει...σ' ευχαριστω πολύ!!

This brings me back to the days when I too used to search for crabs in rock pools on Dublins beaches, how nice to see its still popular! I like the point of view from this too, at first glance, I thought the kid was balanced on the side of the boat!
Funny though, even though I was actively looking for crabs as a kid, they terrified me and if I spotted one, I would tend to run away :)
All the best

Je trouve que tua très bien cadré pour nous montrer cette scène dans la vie quotidienne du jeune homme au filet.L'histoire est bien situé dans le petit port de pèche et on voit qu'il peut s'amuser seul avec bien peu de choses.

I like very much the composition with the piers and moored boats taking the viewer deeper and deeper into the scene. The boy and his rather acrobatic stance makes an interesting and well placed focal point. I like also the play of light across the gently shimmering waters of the harbour.

Un bel ensemble de barques et de bateaux, le garçon satonnant tranquillement a sa passion, belle lumière qui donne de la brillance a l'eau, belle présentation

Ciao Ourania, deliziosa composizione col giovane pescatore in azione, bel taglio, splendida nitidezza e magnifici colori, brava, ciao Silvio

Now people just love to see other people in pictures! I've noticed that some people here won't really comment on a photograph unless there's at least one human being in the frame. I suppose I can understand that because in this picture the boy with his little fishing net holds the whole composition together perfectly.
You have captured a lovely scene in which the boy is the centre of interest but there's also lots else to look at too - the boats, the little jetty in the foreground and the delightful reflections on the water.
Very well taken with lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite details and sharpness.

hello, another great shot here. Like the atmosphere which you presented perfectly. The boats, the small connecting bridge, the person in middle all have nice photographical interest. Excellent light and endless depth. Superb shot. Tfs.
jhm (142852) 2013-11-22 3:20
Young but full attention with looking for, fishing with his small net.
But the environment with the nice yachts makes certainly impression
Your picture is very nice, excellent presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Good warm vs cool color contrasts between the reflected blue skylight in the sea and the red striped boats. The boy with the net animates the scene and provides scale. Good sharpness and wonderful reflections. The shadow of the fg pier adds graphism. Tfs!

This looks fun and that's one of the joys of childhood. What summer is all about and this looks nice to see kid enjoying and learning himself as the same time. Love this very natural shot with his deep concentration enjoying the simple pleasures of seaside life and that he is completely unaware that he is the focus of your lens going in close. This is beautifully composed, brilliant detail wonderful colour and light as this photo gives a very warm feeling. Simple delight, Congrats

nikkitta (16230) 2013-11-22 15:12
You chose the right moment to take the photo of the concentraed fisher boy, did he obtain something?
As usual a FG of water and reflections that add character at the composition and then all kind of boats, simple and luxurious ones
Good title and note for refreshing capture
