We often talk about a "play of shadow" in our notes and comments. Here is a shadow at work:)
A scene from the harbour of Ayia Marina on a bright, sunny afternoon.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

Light and good resolution

Simple but very creative photo. I like the arrangement with the man shadow and the simple crop allowing full concentration on all details. All in very good light.
Wish you a very nice weekend.

That's a beautiful idea, to show the shadow over the boat, and not the whole body on.
Otherwise, it would have been just yet another boat work photo, but you elaborated the subject and posted a special and diff. way to show this man while doing his rutine.
I like the idea very much, great material to think about, at least this way I see it.
Enjoy a nice weekend,

Hi Ourania, I loved the compo showing the fisherman only in his shadow, and loved the theme of course. Wonderful colors.Leros is one of the islands I love in Aegean, and love to visit nearly every year. Congrats.

That is a nice innovative shot. I like your play with shadows over here. Good neutral BG provided by the white of the boat. Very keen observation and nice creativity to get this shot. Like it a lot.
Thanks for sharing.

J'aime beaucoup les ombres dans cette composition. Surtout au niveau de la tête de l'homme que l'on voit bien sur le blanc du bateau.Une composition remarquable.

He he, this is quite an amusing photo, very well spotted. There's not much to say but that you composed this very well, cropping at the right place, and that the light and colours are warm and vivid.

A very good idea to make this portrait with a real arm and a shadow head. The red yellow and blue colours are very good too. Well observed!
fabbs99 (17167) 2014-01-25 9:31
You have used the shadow intelligently to project a different kind of image.Very well captured with good lightings and sharpness.Very well done.TFS.

Intéressant jeu d'ombres qui contraste bien avec la lumière
On devine que le monsieur à un gros pif :)
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-01-25 14:51
Wow! Simple yet so powerful as the image does not only represents one person but all fishermen. Very telling indeed. Good lighting and sharp details with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
mcmtanyel (23953) 2014-01-25 18:34
Very clever composition, well spotted! The combination of red, blue and off-white produces an eye-catching photo.
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-01-26 3:18
very evocative and working on our imagination composition.Really enjoy your approach and vision of this scene.Magnificent imaginary,that makes photography so interesting and unpredictable.
And the way you close-up the scene and how you play here with light&shade is just brilliant and it definitely enhances the strong graphics of the image.
Have a nice sunday

well framed with the silhouette completing the french flag colors!

Ciao Ourania, gran bella con la favolosa ombra, ottima nitidezza, splendida luce e magnifici colori, bravo, ciao Silvio

This is creative, I really like how you've essentially fused the human figure with his shadow. A fun and intriguing play of light indeed...and you've come away with a wonderful and inventive shot. Not only that, but the timing of this is essential as well, because the elements "in play" also work in your favor to help fill what would have otherwise been a large, empty space. Not only that, but the red colors works in perfect compliment to the blue stripes and window trim. A smart observation and concept which you've executed to be most effective. For me, this is the kind of photo that reflects a photographers eye, as I'm sure most people would never envision this in the same manner. Very well done! Enjoy the week ahead.

Amazing what we can find when we are lurking, perfect for shadow play. An interesting close-up with nice contrast as the casting shadows by low warm light lead the eye taken from good angle. The vivid red serves as strong focal, simple yet dynamic just seemed about right to capture all the textures and detail. Great work, tfs

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
Ωραίο το παιχνίδι με τις σκιές.
Έχεις καδράρει εξαιρετικά, τα χρώματα και το φως είναι εξαιρετικά.
