Photography is not just a means of seeing the world, but a vehicle to understand ourselves. On individual and social levels, photography is a way of documenting our lives, capturing important moments, places, and experiences, and sharing those moments with others. - Tim Mantoani -
Photography happens in fractions of seconds. If you totaled the precise time it took to make every image in the book and combined them, it would only amount to a few seconds. In each image, in every frame, there is the moment when the photographer chose to record the image. It is not the camera that makes the picture, it is the photographer. - Tim Mantoani -
In the natural world, there must be a balance; man, animals and mother Earth, sharing the same space. An image that can harness this balance can be extremely powerful: a perfect circle of barracuda, a bond between man and dog, an eagle hunter from an ancient world. And when the balance is disrupted, we too are drawn to see the evils with our own eyes. We canít look, but we canít look away. - Tim Mantoani -

tranquilla immagine con il mare calmo e la barchetta con il suo colore a dare vita alla scena.
Buon inserimento dei massi in FG a dare profonditŗ e a riempire la parte bassa dell'inquadratura,

This is a very harmonious and attractive composition which doesn't need any more ingredients.The red and white boat looks superb in the blue surroundings and its reflections really add a dimension to the view. This could have been a fine composition even without the rocks in the foreground.

Certainly harmony is what you have achieved, here. The boat and its reflections are in perfect harmony with the still water and the stationary rocks.
Perfectly composed, with fine sharpness and lovely contrasts of light on the water.
Have a lovely Sunday,

This small boat seems to be levitating above its shadow. Stones balanced picture and give depth. A beautiful light, pleasant colors. Bravo.
Have a nice day

A perfect mirror, Georgios.
Also, a fine red color of the boat contrast to the smooth water surface.
Lovely shot, kalimera.

Excellent composition with marvelous water reflections. The verical format works very well for this. Nice color contrast. A well presented crop allows eyes to remain fixed on the boat which is also an excellent focal point. Well done.

a simple but well balanced and appealing composition. The red colour is eye-catching and completes perfectly the scene.
Have a nice Sunday

Jolie composition avec ce beau contraste entre l'eau et les couleurs de la barque et de son reflet.

Une image trŤs bien construite qui place parfaitement la petite embarcation dans l'ensemble. Les reflets sont superbes.

The boat is reflected perfectly in the water, as in a mirror. The entire framing is superb. Congratulations!
All the best,

Hello Georgios ,
Splendid light on this little white and red boat , and its superb reflection in the blue water . The composition is interesting with the rock in the FG . It could have been nice , too , with only the boat , but this would have been another picture .

A very peaceful and tranquil view. The red boat is both eye-catchingsitioned in the composition.

The attraction here is the reflection and the vivid red boat within blue surroundings. Very good observation and inclusion of fg to make the shot flows. Well exposed and good color contrast congrats. TFS

I couldn't agree more on Tim Montani's words, great note Georgios! Love the serenity in this scene especially those mirror like reflections, as to the composition, I'd crop the stone below leaving the boat and the water alone, nonetheless, a great image! TFS!
