I drew a line,
I drew a line for you,
Oh what a thing to do,
And it was all yellow.
From "Yellow" by Coldplay
The picture was taken at the usual reflection-mine, the harbour of Ayia Marina, on an ordinary sunny afternoon.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

J'aime bien cette composition.J'aime aussi le titre qui l'accompagne. Une ligne jetée à l'eau, toute jaune .J'aime que l'on ne voie pas le point final. Le cadrage est excellent.

A lovely capture, the lovely reflection of the water on the hull of the boat, I can imagine it dancing as the sea ebbs and flows, also the red reflection beyond the boat and of course the striking yellow rope. Very sharp and good POV.
Have a nice weekend.
P.S. Will catch up with your photos in July we are off to Dalyan (Turkey) on Monday for 2 weeks of relaxation.

A little bit the same if your previous picture, but the picture remains very fine, lovely reflections.
Also very well depth and perspective picture.
Colours and sharpness make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Fabulous yet another boat and rope with a reflection, Ourania.
Cheers for the vivid colors, under favorite light conditions.
Kalispera and nice weekend,

υπέροχο το κοντινό πλάνο με τον φακό σου να έχει εστιαστεί στην βάρκα που με το κίτρινο σχοινί που είναι δεμένη κάνει την τέλεια αντίθεση.Οι πολύχρωμες αντανακλάσεις που την περιτριγυρίζουν κάνουν το όλο σκηνικό ακόμα πιό εντυπωιακό.

une belle composition avec une excellente netteté d'image. La photo est colorée, lumineuse et les reflets sur la mer sont superbes. Voilà qui donne des envies de vacances. Merci pour le partage.

I did not understand the title until I read your full note, very clever, I like that :)
The reflections of the light shimmering on the boat is really wonderful and combined with the light on the sea, it has that great sense of motion, something you seem to have a real gift for. Colors are beautiful, the yellow line cuts the scene perfectly.
Thanks as always
P.S. I just listened to that song on YouTube for old times sake. Good song!

A bientôt,demain je part pour une semaine en Corse, passer une très bonne semaine

Bravo et amitié

penso che la foto abbia una leggera pendenza a destra, ma questo non influisce assolutamente sulla sua bellezza. Un bellissimo taglio e tanti bei riflessi colorati. La corda gialla taglia la foto a S rovesciata, lasciando la barca a sinistra e i riflessi a destra.

Ciao Ourania, gran bel taglio e deliziosi riflessi, splendida luce e magnifici colori, brava, ciao Silvio

Superb detail from the port. I love the yellow rope and the reflections. Well taken.
mesutilgim (86688) 2014-06-15 11:48
Hello dear Ourania,
Ports are allways really treasure chests for a good photographers eye.
Also here you've noticed the hidden beauty and captured it well.
TFS and best regards

I'm familiar with coal, diamonds and other precious gems...but we now have a new classification of mining, reflections....I love it! :) One might well say this is indeed a gold mine, with a yellow twist....of rope. lol
Nice incorporation of the Coldplay song, it fits well with the color association and "line" which has been succinctly brought forth by the imagery and note. You must really have a field day with the endless reflections at your disposal, and I must say, I sure enjoy seeing them!
Each one unique, with its own character and abstract detail. My favorite aspect about this one are the reflected ripples of light projecting on the boat, as if the sun is rising from the surface of the water...but in a ghostly manner. :) Please keep 'em coming. Have a wonderful new week. All the best.

What an excellent full on image with wonderful reflections and lovely the way the boat just breaks them up in the middle. A well composed with both interest and quality in abundance. Excellent capture and TFS
holmertz (42815) 2014-06-16 12:40
This is so simple and so elegant. A nicely curving yellow rope, a bkue and white Greek boat and touches of red in the water. Nothing else is really needed.
Kielia (23847) 2014-06-19 8:07
this is really another fine boat photo that I appreciate very much. An excellently composed and very beautiful impression of this well known place. The moody colors makes the image very interesting. My compliments also for the accompanying song!

Ciao cara Ourania
Che bella la foto e la canzone. Ricordo bene Yellow di Coldplay. Stupendi i riflessi, i colori e quella luce calorosa ed incandescente. Mi piace specialmentenil taglio stretto. Niente cielo, solo la barchetta ed il mare. Complimentoni, un vero capolavoro.
Un caro saluto e buon weekend
PS: Mille grazie delle tue parole alla mia foto per la. Grande Barriera Corallina. La lotta continua, ma non dobbiamo mai perdere la speranza.

The colors and the reflections are lovely, congratulations Lovely contribution to TE, TFS!
adores (38707) 2014-07-12 14:32
Somehow, you always get good compositions with these boats. Once again the reflection is great, I like a lot that red colour there. Very well seen and framed!

As you will understand, I had to find your Coldplay inspired picture! Great to see that "Yellow" turns out to be so inspiring for us photographers! It's a wonderful photo too! The reflections are just gorgeous.
