A detail found in the harbour of Ayia Marina that hosts lovely wooden fishing boats from Leros and sometimes from other islands too. Although this is a harbour, the water is clear enough and you can have a glimpse at the fish traffic and the sea bed.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely month to all

This is a nice reflection picture.

Like Brian (timecapturer), you have a boat theme to your photograph but this shot has a completely different character. Yours has a very tranquil mood, as the reflections gently undulate on the water's surface.
You have cropped the shot very well, creating good diagonals. I love how the rope gives new dimensions as it actually rests on the surface of the water.
Have a great w/e,

Excellent idea! Simple and minimalist composition, but I like this realisation, attractive twisted lines, good crop.
All the best wishes,

Yet another charming rope and boat reflection, Ourania, and must admit this is growing better and better. keep doing this, enchanting photojob applied.
The colors and clarity on the smooth water surface is fabulous sight here.
My cong.'s, Kalimera and enjoy a nice weekend,

like this! A simple observation, yet it takes on an attraction and appeal by being such a simple and everyday sight. Arty and beautifully conceived imagery! Well done!
Have a great weekend - B.

Hi Ourania, very good picture of this beautiful and interesting reflection on the harbor, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light and color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good afternoon and happy Sunday.
Warm greetings from southern Spain.

This is an interesting composition where you managed to combine reflections and a "natural" view in a most clever way. I enjoy photos which make me slightly unsure exactly what I am seeing. Besides, I love the fine balance of yellow, green, red and blue.

This is a fine minimal composition with a nice boat and its shadow. The rope and its shadow is very nicely captured as well. The still water has helped the execution of this shot with perfect mirror reflections. Expertly observed and taken, thanks for sharing.

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Elle évoque les petits ports de pèche, les terrasses, les bateaux et l'été. Le cadrage est excellent et offre une tonne de beaux détails tout en restant d'un beau flou.

A very attractive picture and a very enjoyable view. The reflections in the water create very soft forms and colours. Well observed!

très jolie réalisation, belle idée du cadrage , des reflets attrayant, bien capturer , une lumière excellente qui permet de voir beaucoup de détails, bien vu et réaliser, comme quoi il est bon de regarder vers le bas :-))
Passer une très belle fin de journée

This can be 'read' figuratively or as an abstract image and I like that Ourania. What superb details and attractive reflections; they seem to shimmer before my eyes. Excellent. Warm regards Rosemary
amaryllis (35881) 2014-03-01 8:21
superbe photo de ce bateau et de son reflet aux couleurs comme d'un soir qui tombe, une lumière douce baigne l'ensemble
Belle réalisation et cadrage

Amazing reflection. And as a person who is not fond of the sea (I love to look at it, but not be in it) I have to imagine that there must surely be something below the mirror surface looking back at us but outside our view. Perhaps just a fish, perhaps a mermaid, I let my imagination run sometimes. And its not hard to do that with an image like this, it gives us a tempting hint of the overall scene and allows the mind to fill in the blanks.
Thanks as always
mohammad_H (9754) 2014-03-01 9:26
The image is so expressive, the audience, and for all attractive
Clear water, rope, gentle waves under water for Reflection
Beautifully integrated, like mythology, your country,
Photos of philosophical and for me logical
Have a nice evening
subhendu_bagchi (25975) 2014-03-01 10:45
what a fine minimal composition here. You really do such minimal frames nice as here. Great colourful one with fine reflection in water. Great shot. Tfs.
Romano46 (18472) 2014-03-01 11:05
della serie dei riflessi nell'acqua , nella quiale sei mestra, questa forse è la più bella per la bellezza della composizione e per come luce e colore interagiscono in maniera straordinaria regalando belle emozioni.
Ciao e buona domenica

Έγραψες με το φως εδώ Ουρανία!
φανταστική λήψη,τέλεια οξύτητα,φως και χρώματα,
χαιρετώ και καλό μήνα!
photographer_sg (4410) 2014-03-01 12:04
that is a beautiful composition with lovely colours. The exquisite details of the reflection in the water is sheer visual delight! Beautiful and original framing. Thanks for sharing and have a great Sunday.
chrisg76 (747) 2014-03-01 13:07
Η εικόνα σου αυτή είναι μαγευτική.
Νομίζω πως ξεπέρασες τον εαυτό σου.
Τη θεωρώ την καλύτερη από την συλλογή σου με αντανακλάσεις.
Η διαχείριση του φωτός και οι τόνοι των χρωμάτων είνα πραγματικά άψογοι και σαγηνευτικοί.
Το αποτέλεσμα είναι καθηλωτικό.
Τι να πω; Εύχομαι να μας δίνεις πάντα τέτοιες φωτογραφίες.
Αλλά μετά, οι ζωγράφοι τι θα κάνουν;;
Να είσαι πάντα καλά και καλή Καθαρά Δευτέρα!

I've been easily distracted by your note, each time I look up from the keyboard I'm expecting to see some fish swimming under the clear waters. :) What a fantastic illusionary element in this composition...the rope leading straight into the water with its reflection looks to be a continuation of the same rope, and not its counterpart.
It would seem and endless supply of opportunity just in the harbor alone, I envy your access and fully appreciate your observational and composition skills to render such artistic interpretations. You could fill an entire gallery with this one theme. Exquisite golden light helps make this another beautiful display of abstract form, it's tantalizingly warped. :) Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Take it easy.
fabbs99 (16817) 2014-03-01 23:29
Outstanding reflection shot with nice colors and sharpness.The fishing boat can be used intelligently to get perfect frame like this one.Very well done,TFS.
lousat (82720) 2014-03-02 2:31
Ciao Ourania,riflessi impressionanti in questo close-up di altissimo livello,grande taglio e bellissimi colori,fantastica la corda che sembra immegersi nell'acqua! Buona Domenica e complimenti,Luciano
carlo62 (38805) 2014-03-02 3:03
bel riflesso, mi piacciono molto i toni attutiti dei colori, le linee leggermente deformate e il senso di quiete che prevale sulla forza della luce.
Interessante anche il gioco di linee, tra quelle della barca e quelle delle corde.
Corry (4508) 2014-03-02 5:09
Une photo très artistique de cette barque qui se reflète et se déforme dans l'eau. Le résultat est superbe. Bien fait.
COSTANTINO (59991) 2014-03-02 7:32
great work as always
this reflections is not a simple reflection
its a great work welldone and wellseen
simple and minimalistic composition
the painter used pale colors
from his palette I liked the
description about fishing boats
the water is so clear as a mirror
have a n ice new week
eldancer1 (32137) 2014-03-02 7:35
So simple, yet so powerful a composition! And it's more like a painting than a photograph. I like the idea of including just a small portion of the boat to the reflections. Good lighting and nice details. Very well done, tfs.
Schnappilic (9690) 2014-03-02 9:45
Good eye to take a beautiful scene like this. Splendid frame! Congratulations!
krzychu30 (15510) 2014-03-03 2:47
a subject,which has become your Trademark!
Excellent approach to the theme and magnificent,for me also dreamy and kind of nostalgic result and feeling of it.
The scene is perfectly framed and close-up and the light helped you to emphasize the mood of the scene.
Wish You a nice day
abmdsudi (46980) 2014-03-03 21:35
Very restful shot with fantastic distortions- the light is excellent for bringing out the colours, very natural tones and details as these strengthen the composition. Superb capture with imaginative approach, Congrats
adidas5nb (5685) 2014-03-06 23:52
brilliant artistic shot and idea here.just love the frame.specially how you have kept just that little bit of the real ropes in the frame and how they are positioned.
delpeoples (55094) 2014-03-11 1:51
Ciao cara Ourania
Bellissima inquadratura qui. Adoro le curve, i riflessi e la resa cromatica. Il taglio stretto ha lavorato benissimo qui, accentuando la prospettiva. Una foto molto artistica e particolare. complimenti.
adores (41086) 2014-03-29 10:49
Another beautiful reflection! I like the composition,the light and specially the symmetry of the ropes. The water was so calm that we can clearly see the textures of the boat.
pili51 (1507) 2014-05-11 16:25
Hola querida Ourania,
I was all set to comment on your previous picture...and then I opened up your gallery to find this one, and I just can't resist! I most enjoy the sentiment conveyed here. I can envision seeing the boat boat gently rocking on the water surface, and hearing the faint splash. Incredible transition of color in that clear water, adding even more appeal in the reflections gently onduladas on the water's surface.
Simple, and simply beautiful! Congrats.
Enjoy the week. Take care,
