The colourful wooden fishing boats in the harbour of Ayia Marina have always a treat for the roaming photographers, even on cloudy days. Here I was attracted to the way the silvery sea reflected the colours. I noticed the subtle, rhythmical motion of the surface and tried to capture it clearly.
Thank you for visiting

This is a signature presentation from you and one with superb colours and composition! The distinct textural division at the surface of the water is excellent while the uppermost part of the boat adds a tiny touch of reality which I feel is very important for the picture. The fine exposure has brought out with clarity the texture and the vivid colours of the hull.
Thanks for sharing this excellent photograph.
Have a nice day

I like the way you have captured the soft wind riffles on the water that blend the colours rather than reflecting a mirror image Ourania. As you say a subtle difference to the norm and it is a great shot. TYFS.

Reflections are often attractive. These are brilliantly captured!
The line where the boat meets the water is a great detail. I think I would crop off the top though.
All the best,

Charming and beautifully captured image with fantastic graphical layout. Like it a lot! The vertical framing was carefully selected to achieve a really elegant result. Well done! TFS.

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazan trenutak igre boje i svetla na povrsini vode, lepe boje.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela, srecno.
Nice view and a moment ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely shown a moment game of color and light on the water surface, beautiful color.
Have a nice evening and night, all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

These reflections are really outstanding. The lower half of the picture is like an abstract painting, but by including the regular view of the boat you help us easily identify the origins of the reflections. They are not as twisted and strange as some others you have shown us, just enough transformed by the "subtle motion" of the sea to be interesting. They are really very attractive.

Ottima inquadratura su questa barca, splendidi i suoi riflessi. Bellissima minimalista composition, complimenti.
Buona serata amica mia.

Ciao Ourania,un classico della tua gallery dove il riflesso molto soft ha fatto la differenza,gran taglio verticale con le linee sull'acqua che formano un sacco di "underscores" coloratissime.Molto bella nella sua semplicita'.Complimenti e buona giornata,Luciano

As I can see I've missed many nice photos from your gallery during my TE absence. Don't worry I'll catch up soon.
This is excellent colourful detail photo in very good light, nice tight crop. The reflections are very nice.
Very well done.

"Subtle motion" is a fine yet charming title for the scene. Water ripples with the colors of the boat anchored, moved by the mild wave across pic, spoace.
A lovely reflection shot,halved by real sight and the FG by painted water's.

The painted lines along this boat make very attractive reflections in the water. The colours blend very nicely and create a painting here. Beautiful!

J'aime beaucoup l'effet des reflets un peu brouillés dans cette composition. Le cadrage serré est excellent et les couleurs très bien rendues.

You know that feeling you get when you are in a bus and it goes over a bridge, making it feel that your stomach has risen a bit? That's the feeling I get when I see this image, as I feel myself bobbing up and down on the water. A gentle feeling of motion, but gentle soft colors too, all of which combine beautifully. That is to me a little unexpected, as I would not expect these strong prime colors to mix so well, but they do, and especially so in the beautiful Monet style reflection.
Thanks as always

quando ti capita di concentrarti su simili soggetti riesci sempre a dare il meglio di te stessa creando delle composizioni piacevolissime nelle quale il colore e la nitidezza concorrono sempre ad un risultato straordinario.
E anche con questa hai fatto un centro perfetto!
Ciao e buona serata

Ciao Ourania, gran bel taglio, deliziosi riflessi e fantastici colori, bravissima, ciao Silvio

Ahhh, once again...simplicity refined. :) A slightly different kind of reflection, as noted, with the soft ripples and diffused light. It puts the imagery into motion, even projecting a bit of vibration effect...and if you saw Jurassic Park, I hope it doesn't mean a T-rex is on the loose. lol
Great primary colors and a fully filled frame give the imagery an instant "punch." I'm sure it would be easy to fill an entire memory card with nothing but reflections, and I'm glad you've decided to share some of them with us. A lovely half and half picture of stark elemental contrast. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

Ουρανία γεια σου,
πολύ όμορφα τα χρώματα της βάρκας που καθρεφτιζόμενα στην θάλασσα,
κάνουν το στιγμιότυπο τόσο ενδιαφέρον και μοναδικό και μοιάζει περισσότερο με καμβά ζωγράφου.Τα χρώματα καθαρά και διαυγεί παρά αν και Φεβρουάριος.

Γεια σου Ουρανία,

Une capture excellente des reflets bien mis en avant plan, le cadrage de la barque et le contraste des couleurs qui on donner ces merveilleux reflets, belle réalisation
Très belle soirée
abmdsudi (48769) 2014-05-08 23:05
Well spotted reflections, one of those great abstracts that occur in the twinkling of an eye with those lovely tones, random colopurs and light.
A pretty capture, Congrats

this is indeed a well spotted scenery. The boat is fabulous with great colour and detail. The reflection in the water makes it look like graphical artwork. The composition is excellent.
eldancer1 (33901) 2014-05-11 7:26
Excellent tight composition and one does not need to see the whole to get the picture. I like the lines created and dividing the colors. Good textures even the water. Sharp details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hola Ourania Querida
Truly creative composition,, up the boat, down (repecting third rule) color mouvement given by riffles and reflctions in a well seen mix
Well seen , composed and posted
