The prow tip of a fishing boat moored in the harbour of Ayia Marina. There's a group of lovely wooden boats moored close together, the red tips at their prows and poops giving a lot of ideas for photographs.
A couple of years ago fishermen were encouraged by E.U. and the government to substitute their wooden boats for modern vessels. The old boats were destroyed. Fortunately there are quite a few beautiful, colourful boats still around.
Thank you for visiting

you take us again in a journey into a dreamland.
Love the view,the way you framed and close-up it and obove all its abstract feeling created by the distracted reflections.
Beautiful picture and superb idea for it!
Wish You a nice weekend ahead

An artistic and restful image Ourania. The reflection has an attractive fluidity and range of tones, the highlight on the strong wavy edge adds the all important contrast.

Καμπύλες και χρώμα σε μια αφαιρετική σύνθεση!

Avec tous les petits ports de pêche que vous avez en Grêce, c'est une mine inépuisable de sujets tous plus beaux les uns que les autres. Surtout avec les reflets qui s'offrent au regard.

quel détail et compo sueprbe image quel reflet et effet cette proue de bâteau qui se déforme et fait un très beau dessin mervielleux.
Bravo et amitié

An immaculate water-painted mirror on photo, Ourania.
Simple, yet masterfully applied.
Vivid tones by the bright daylight, and sharp image.
My cong.'s, kalispera,

C'est une photo intéressante et une bonne idée;
j'aime bien le côté abstrait de l'image.
L'ondulation déforme les contours et rend attractive cette composition.

This compositio has an elegant simplicity that I like very much. There are fewer colours and fewer distorted lines than in most reflections. At the same time it makes me a bit puzzled. Everybody else seems to refer to this as just reflections, but to me it looks like a combination of reflections and a "real" view. It seems that the yellow part of the prow is above the surface, or am I completely wrong? Regardless what, i love the colours and shapes, including the three black spots at the upper corner. A composition like this reveals an obvious artistic talent.

Modernity does not equal beauty, we see that everywhere but like you say, thanks be that some remain and that your eye is there to capture these moments that could be lost forever at a moments notice. This is another beautiful abstract, the colors so vibrant against the soft blue canvass of the sea. I am also trying to figure out how part of the boat is disconnected! A fascinating study on this subject.

A wonderful abstract image of the reflection with good sharpness and marvellous warm cold color contrasts between the red and blue. I like the wavy rippled patterns in the water. A good exposure on the highlights. Tfs!

Γεια σου Ουρανία,
Πανέμορφη αντανάκλαση με υπέροχα χρώματα.

that is a beautiful composition with lovely colours. I loved the abstract beauty of the picture that achieves so much with so few elements. absolutely superb!
Congratulations and thanks for sharing.
Have a great weekend.

Bien vu et réaliser, top dans le cadrage et les couleurs, tel une peinture abstraite, très agréable a regarder
Passer une très belle soirée

eldancer1 (31349) 2014-03-16 7:36
Beautiful and very creative composition. Unique perspective of the reflection and the boat. I like the lines created by the ripple in the water and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
Didi (58730) 2014-03-16 10:41
Tu excelles parfaitement dans l'abstrait grâce aux réfections sur l'eau
Un bon sujet pour une exposition photographique
jcpix (13804) 2014-03-16 19:28
As long as they're not completely rotting away and left for dead, it would be a shame to dispense of the old wooden boats. They generally hold so much character appeal and are chuck full of textures...doesn't the government realize photographers will be the ones hurt in the end?? :)
What can I say, another beautiful reflection you've captured. The gentle undulations of the waters surface add a dream-like quality to the imagery, and of course the wavy rendition of the boat itself makes sublime abstract art. The tri-color scheme works harmoniously to produce a pleasant tone which accompanies the warm sunlight. Good to see full on reflections without the requirement of its origin. ;) Have a wonderful week ahead. All the best.

As in the novel 'Alice and the Mirror' of 1871, the prow asked to the waters "who was the cutest of them all"!
And the reflexions sent back a fancy artistic answer to the vainglorious ship!!

Αυτή μου ήταν αδύνατον να τη προσπεράσω χωρίς να γράψω μία κριτική Ουρανία,
είναι απ' αυτές που θυμίζουν περισσότερο έργο τέχνης και ζωγραφιά παρά φωτογραφία,
την κατάλληλη ματιά χρειάζεται κανείς για να την δει,όπως εσύ εδώ...
mirosu (15156) 2014-03-18 2:56
For a while I was thinking how to comment this photo. I like the details which you have captured in very good light. I also admire your skill how you captured the smooth water waves on quiet surface, and the excellently chosen crop. Of course the colourful reflections are beautiful, they make this photo special.
Very well done.
mcmtanyel (15979) 2014-03-20 20:08
Simple but lovely photo with deep colors. I love that illusion where the top of the bow seems to be floating in the air.
pili51 (1487) 2014-03-23 16:30
Buenas noches Ourania,
A fine reflection with nice distorted shapes, an artist would not have done better... very sharp composition..Great shapes and colors.
RhodieIke (11742) 2014-03-24 10:06
Love this reflection, it's like a abstract painting.
Wonderful, shapes, colours and ripples.
BennyV (14333) 2014-05-12 10:04
(An older post, but I just noticed it...)
Terrific picture, this one, Ourania. The effect that the top (here: bottom) of the prow tip is cut off by the dancing water...that's just magic! A very playful effect that really adds to the shot! Congratulations.
