In the small fishing port in Glyfada area the fishermen are selling their catch as soon as they arrive there after the fishing session. They are small selling stalls on the dock and usually in an hour or so all the fishes are gone:-)...So in the afternoon when this photo was taken the racks and boxes are empty:-)

Another inetersting view of this harbour, but I find the compo just a bit too confused here. The scale is an interesting detail, but I think it would have made a much better shot if you'd used a shallow DoF to through out the background, and I know you can with that camera.

Συμπαθώ την ισορροπία μεταξύ των κλιμάκων & του κάδου. Θαυμάσιο αντανακλάσεις & χρώμα & καλή χρήση μιας διαγώνιοσς & μιας επανάληψης στη σύνθεση. Καλή εργασία!
I like the balance between the scales & the bucket. Superb reflections & colour & good use of a diagonal & repetition in the composition. Well done!

Πολλή όμορφη δουλειά Γιώργο. Η θάλασσα τόσο ήρεμη. Έχεις πετύχει και τον κατάλληλο φωτισμό. Όσο για τα χρώματα, πολύ καθαρά! ΠΟλλή καλή δουλειά!

Nice compositional idea to have the scale in the foreground right, George. The marina details in the back are delightful to watch, and the overall colors as well as the richness in detail add up to a pleasing result. Well done on your 100th :-)

J'aime cette photo reportage, elle décrit bien la vie quotidienne du port George. Une photo gorgée de lumière et de couleurs.
Très bien fait.
Merci du partage.

Ah, what a colorful fisherman port scene. THe point of view, behind the scales is brilliant. I also like this old fashion red truck. Beautiful shot, George.

Kalimera George, nice view on the scale and good placement on the photo, having this view enlarged to show the boats as well stresses the usage of this scale related to fishing activities, beautiful colors all over your photo, I like the smooth water surface here very much.
And warmest congratulations for passing this first important milestone #100 !

You have very nice colors in Greece at the moment and I like very much this composition with that balance in the foreground. Well seen!

Good daily life scene, George; also a good note and the usual quality, as well as very good colours and perspective. Good work!

a bit busy in the left corner, but great scenery! Lively colors! I like the scale as major subject.

I like this compo from the harbour with all the details included. The weigth is masterly captured as it seems to be without any anchoring. Also the people in the back is a fine addition of details in this compo.
Hanssie (10397) 2004-12-21 15:27
Missed this one ?
This one is "beauty full" !
A picture with a lot of colours and details, I especially like the "hanging detail" here, that's nice done, George !
jonick33 (79) 2005-01-11 7:40
I do like the colors very much, reminds me of Velvia colors...
I have done some WS too, trying to give a "Photoshop Depth of Field"... if you could enable WS for this pic, i would be glad to post it!
