A scene I noticed one morning while riding my bike through Ayia Marina. I pulled over quickly, as usual, and took a couple of pictures from the quay. It was moments before the crew member finished his work and climbed up.
The boat is Patmos Star, it connects Patmos with Lipsos and Leros three times a week during winter and daily in the summer.
Thank you for visiting

I like this kind of shot, it is good conceptual photo, a typical journalist support of their articles. Excellent capture of a man at work! TFS!

Your swift action provided a nice moment, when the maintenance guy just about to climb back aboard.
Daylight and superb clarity well collected.

Une touche intéressante de rouge qui contraste bien avec l'arrière-plan
Le travailleur n'a pas intérêt à louper son mouvement au risque de tomber dans l'eau

The moment I opened this page I noticed a very good photo. I was not at all surprised to see it was yours :-). There is a perfect balance between blue and white and between the two small areas of letters. The crew member, superbly dressed in red, is also perfectly balanced, in every way. His particiption here, and that of his shadow, is of course the jewel of this crown.

hello, a very well composed daily life shot here. Like the working man hanging. His red dress is really eyebatching. You composed your shot in such minimal way which is really enjoyable. Great depth and sharpness. Very good one. Tfs.

I have a lot years control the safety of the workers on the work place done.
This would I never have accepted a man with one hand to the cord ladder, without a specially line with fall arrest device.
Your picture is very well taken
Nice perspective and depth.
Excellent captured, nice composed picture.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

Hi Ourania ,
A moment caught in time.i suppose someone has to do the dirty work. Nice capture of this man at work on the side of the boat. Good lighting and colours, the bright orange boiler suit reall stands out against the white.

An everyday subject seen thru the eye of an avid photographer! Well featured highlights with some rich and vibrant colors and thanks to your good close up work and attention to detail. The powerful red is enough to glue the eyes combining superbly with blue and white. It's an inevitably impressive graphism effect finely seen and taken. Congrats, tfs :)

Vous avez capturer la scène au bon moment, la salopette rouge et son ombre sur le blanc du bateau, belle scène de vie même si cela ne doit pas être des plus facile a faire!!!

A truly precious catch! I like the red uniform against the off white and blue of Patmos Star. The shadow cast by the crew member is noteworthy and so are the reflections of the light reflected off the surface of the water.

You have found a very strong subject with excellent positioning of the man in nice light. You´ve placed the main point of interest, the man, to the side of the frame which really does strengthen things and creates excellent balance. The vertical arrangement is very good. Well done.
