Fishermen from Leros have approached the lovely boat to greet a collegue from the neighbouring island of Kalymnos who has just arrived at the harbour of Ayia Marina bringing some sea fruit.
Thank you for visiting

Bellissima scena nel porto con splendida luce. Bellissimo posto in primo piano per bere il mio caffè! :)
Ti auguro una bella giornata amica.

Hello dear Ourania,
A very well known scene from almost every Greek island !
Boats at landing and a couple of armchairs and table on the shore just to take a seat and enjoy your caffee !
Nice observed and captured.
TFS and have a nice day

Love this, the fisherman can land their catch cook it up in the quay side restaurant and then eat it and admire the sea and their handsome boat, from this little table.

Ciao Ourania,una bella scena quotidiana da Leros,vedo che sono tutti anziani e sicuramente si conoscono anche se il pescatore proviene da un'altra isola,la composizione è davero eccellente,il meeting concentra l'attenzione,ma tu ci hai messo il tavolo con le sedie e l'ombrellone per arricchire alla perfezione il quadro...molto bella! Buona giornata,Luciano

Like the friendly and amicable atmosphere of this photo. The set of chair and tables in the FG is also playing an effective part in welcoming the fishermen from neighbouring villages. The lovely warm light is adding to the atmosphere as well. Excellent moment captured in a nice frame, thanks for sharing.

Excellent snapshot of these group of men probably discussing the news of the day (?). Perfect straight viewpoint and superb light. I like the nicely balanced colors, razor sharpness with superb details. The arrangement with the table and chairs in foreground is superb.
Very well done.

This is a very pleasant photo with a good atmosphere among the men meeting on the quay. It was a very good idea to include the table. It makes us imagine how it will soon be covered with plates and glasses and the air filled with happy voices and laughter of the men (provided they found a nicer topic than politics or economy). This was a simple and fairly unimportant event, but once again you managed to make something interesting out of it.

The four fishermen have their chair abandon, for a discussion for to go, with the boat.
Excellent scene, made in high quality.
Also a nice panoramic view in background.
Excellent composition, very well captured.
Very well done, TFS.

I can only imagine how much they have to talk about. The table with couple of chairs in the foreground will come in handy when they start sharing news and gossip;-)
It is a lovely scene with multiplan composition. The whole party has been placed against nice hills and the sea and the foreground also is pretty and strong.
I like all the warm tones of this image and nice afternoon light.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

Hi Ourania, very nice shot of this interesting and beautiful scene of daily life in the harbor, very well composed and captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, depth, light and beautiful color. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.
Good afternoon and happy rest of the week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

la scenografia è perfetta. Lo sguardo passa dal tavolo e relative sedie in primo piano al peschereccio accostato alla banchina con gli uomini in conversazione accanto ad esso.
Si ha l'impressione che i due soggetti siano complementari e che gli uomini presto si siederenanno attorno al tavolo per bere qualcosa o per fare una partita a carte.
Mi piace anche la luce molto brillante che illumina in maniera perfetta la scena e regala colori molto vivi.
Una scena che dipinge molto bene la vita di tutti i giorni.
Ciao e buona giornata

Cette photo représente parfaitement l'atmosphère de fin de journée après une longue journée de travail sur la mer.Les hommes discutent des prises, probablement de la température . L'idée leur passe par la tête qu'un petit verre d'Ouzo passerait bien.
Une belle image qui raconte une histoire.

εξαιρετικό το στιγμιότυπο από την γραφική Λέρο,με τον ερχομό της ψαρόβαρκας να πρεσελκύει τους γνωστούς και φίλους για το καλωσόρισμα και για το πως πήγε η ψαριά.Το τραπεζάκι με τις καρέκλες δίνει έμφαση στο σκηνικό και το φως αναδεικνύει τις λεπτομέρειες και την ομορφιά του τοπίου.

Ciao Ourania, deliziosa scenettam, composizione ben equilibrata, splendida luce e magnifici colori, brava, ciao Silvio

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
Πολύ ωραίο στιγμιότυπο!! Έχεις συνθέσει πολύ ωραία την φωτογραφία σου βάζοντας και το τραπεζάκι στο κάδρο σου, η οξύτητά της είναι εξαιρετική και ο φωτισμός άψογος. Συγχαρητήρια και καλή συνεχεία.

Oh, this is great...you have two photos in one! This would have worked well with the table setting alone, or the scene taking place in the background on its own...but having them together takes it up a degree with interest and that human presence.
What you've describes falls right in line with the visual, and the foreground setting welcomes both the fishermen and viewer. You've pulled me right into the moment, I feel as if I should gesture them over. :) It would appear to be a fine day for both fishing and a casual meal along the seaside...everything about this shot is inviting! And on the technical side you have clarity, detail and balanced exposure to produce natural tones. So very well achieved! Enjoy the new day.

Hello Ourania - The table and chairs are ready for the friends to sit and chat over a glass of ouzo! A lovely DL scene which is no doubt played out often on the islands. Warm regards Rosemary

Exchanging resipes for a fish-soup, maybe.
Nice taken this daily-life scene, many elements employed the pic. space in most efficient way.
Colors of the boat mingle beautifully onto the grey and brown BG, while the men standing by gave vividness to the whole.
Fine photojob done.
krzychu30 (15510) 2014-02-13 13:48
this one has also very lovely atmosphere(just like your latest photo I´ve just commented),but here we observe friendship and so nice,relaxing atmosphere between friends.
I like the composition with inviting table in the FG,which seems to invite these fishermens to spend more time around it.And one thing more,that helps you to create so lovely mood and to make this scene so pleasant to us,namely the light.It´s really delightful and warm.
nikkitta (15334) 2014-02-13 15:47

subhendu_bagchi (25913) 2014-02-17 2:38
somehow I missed it. A very very good one indeed. I like the colour tone of it. Like the composition a lot. Nice to see the view from your chosen POV. Great daily life shot.
abmdsudi (44800) 2014-02-18 22:31
Enjoy with the placement with some good additional interests around to keep the eye into perspective. like the shape of the boat and the whole feel of the image, contrasts and the way you've composed this around their conversation doing their own thing and enjoying it. The tone is great, good shooting angle, full of interest with colourful local flavour. A social observational image and a well taken street candid shot, Congrats, TFS

Très jolie composition bien cadrer et présenter , les couleurs et la lumière sont magnifiques, belle scène de vie bien mise en image
PaulVDV (23037) 2014-02-21 10:33
A very well composed picture with an excellent depth.
I like the composition in different horizontal layers.
A beautiful daily life-picture with the arid nature on the background.
Best regards, Paul
