Your title is very well chosen indeed exactly butterflies with a little bit fantasia
Your colours and subject are very well chosen.
An excellent composition, nice choice of your angle, this cares for depth and perspective.
Very well done, TFS.

The close panoramic crop works well here, creating a fine sense of dynamism. I like the colorus and the shimmering light across the water.

Μου αρέσει πάρα πολύ το παιχνίδι που έχεις παίξει με τον τίτλο και τα ιστιοφόρα, όντως σας πεταλούδες είναι. Μια πολύ όμορφη εικόνα και άκρως καλοκαιρινή. Η απλότητα και η καλαισθησία αναδεικνύεται μέσα από την σύνθεσή σου.
Να έχεις ένα καλό απόγευμα,

With all respect, boats are nicer than cars (though some may disagree) :-). This is a very nicely shaped photo and the boats are elegantly placed. I like the pattern of various blue tones created by the ripples on the water. This is the kind of photo to watch when you need to wind down.

The boats are well positioned on the calm but glittering water. A beautiful summer scene!

Light made the sea view with metallic texture, shining under the bright daylight. Same pattern on the boats(as far as I can understand, with my little knowlkedge about), all collected in fine clear details.
Cheers and best reagards,

Excellent view to blue sea water and white sailing boats. The tight crop is very good and the panoramic arrangement excellent. Also the light reflections are very nice.
Very well done.

A great summer frame

Ciao Ourania, deliziosa composizione con le graziose vele su un fantastico mare, poi l'amicizia tra Italia e Grecia mi fa tanto piacere, brava, ciao Silvio

The limited colour palette helps set the scene for your racing shot. The disturbed water still gives interesting reflections, perhaps helping to add to the sense of movement.
I imagine this was a very enjoyable spectacle.
How many races take place in this Friendship Regatta?

Hola Ourania querida
So, so charming Summer scene, well composed and taken and yes, the boats seems smart butterflies on the sea, a true joy to watch with the different patterns, tones and.. some reflections
Well done, enjoy Summer

I know nothing about sailing, but it sure doesn't stop me from appreciating a few boats in a scene like this. As you might suspect, the dominance of blue color is a big attraction for me, but it's the subtleties within that really draw my eye. The combination of ripples and relatively untouched spaces of the waters surface is rather intriguing. And then of course, the triangular sails and the contrast of color they provide to break up the frame is simple, but elegant. The direction of light is well defined from this point of view, and casts a relaxed mood over the imagery. Nicely timed as well for adequate spacing between the boats....I mean, butterflies. :) Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Hi Ourania dear
This shot is very beautiful and attractive. It is like a postcard. Exposure clarity and well performed. Congratulations and thanks for sharing
abmdsudi (52325) 2014-08-08 7:16
Love the shot where you can really appreciate those saily sails on the yachty yachts. So nice and airy full of life, the focus looks deep enough with f9 in the shot and those sails set against the blue water make a wonderful image and very well composed with the subjects filling the frame nicely. Well done shot, TFS.

Joli point de vue sur ces voiliers bien disposés
Une bonne idée de n'avoir pas inclu le ciel
Noel_Byrne (30059) 2014-08-08 9:35
Very nice title :) So perfect for these delicate looking boats, but by including the little dinghy we get an idea of how big these fine vessels actually are! A very nice idea too to compose this scene with no sky, unusual but it works perfectly with this glittering blue sea.

Hello dear Ourania,
Very nice summery capture. The beauty of the simplicity.
TFS and have a nice weekend
photoray (13967) 2014-08-08 15:07
Sea Butterflies indeed. Not the heavy wind race with boats slanted against the wind and flying across the surface, but a smoother flowing movement.
This size sailboat is my favorite in the 23 to 29 foot length range, the type I sailed on in San Francisco Bay. And I wish I still did.
Thanks for sharing,
bukitgolfb301 (40684) 2014-08-08 17:34

Lovely composition with an ethereal atmosphere. The boats spread across the beautiful water present a perfect picture of tranquility that has great beauty too. Lovely minimalistic picture with great light and colours.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice weekend.

Une image joliment bien composer et apaisante a regarder par son bleu brillant et les doux reflets
Une belle soirée a vous
macjake (66492) 2014-08-10 16:31
the title you chose works well...sea butterflies.
there's something about sailboats in the water isn't it. they can be so photogenic and often they set a peaceful type of mood.
nice to see the boats spread out here.
thanks for this one
jemaflor (95253) 2014-08-10 23:44
Lovely blue sea with a good pov and composition with these sailboats, good result and contrast with the small boat, tfs.
CLODO (33816) 2014-08-11 7:36
Almost no wind, and it's hard to be the first at the buoy. good high POV without sky to concentrate on the blueish seascape.
SnapRJW (31629) 2014-08-12 9:10
Hello Ourania - A delicate image well suited to your title. The light across the sails and reflecting off the hulls adds an attractive subtle contrast to the image. I do like the limited colour palette, it gives a serenity to the shot.
PiotrF (16594) 2014-08-12 9:37
nice scene from the regatta. I like your very good composition.
Very pleasant Picture.
stego (24132) 2014-08-13 10:57
Apparently simple compo, but very effective and beautiful. It's a very attractive image.
adores (44807) 2014-08-13 17:01
Regattas are usually nice places to take a few shots:)! I like the textures of the water and the way you framed the little boats. Nice colours also!
fabianoleite (10468) 2015-04-30 14:02
Nice array of boats, creating a balanced composition and with good contrasts. Nice work, congratulations!
