A scene from the harbour of Ayia Marina on a lovely winter afternoon. A group of ladies had gathered at a cafe' nearby to watch a Tupperware display, their voices and laughter occasionally interrupted the quiet at my vantage point but couldn't disturb the peace of the anglers.
In the background there's a glimpse of the beach Dio Liskaria, near the other end of the bay.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

όμορφο το απογευματινό στιγμιότυπο με τους ερασιτέχνες ψαράδες να κάθονται στην άκρη του προβλήτα του λιμανιού της Αγίας Μαρίνας και να επιδίδονται στην αγαπημένη τους ασχολεία,στο ψάρεμα.
Οι δημιουργούμενες αντανακλάσεις και το ζεστό απογευματινό φως κάνουν το όλο σκηνικό τόσο γαλήνιο και μοναδικό.

Love the sense of calm here, I can almost here the swish of the gently moving water, and the blips of the fish within. The light has illuminated the pier side and your subjects really nicely here, and helped create that fascinating reflection which in itself is like a slice of abstract art. Thanks as always!

You are right, a quiet, tranquil afternoon.
You have captured the mood to good effect.
I particularly like how the low sun is gilding the edge of the wharf and then being reflected even more vividly in the water. The red clothes add to the vibrancy and to the impact of the reflections.
The figures are strongly positioned in the frame, nicely detailed against an unobtrusive oof b/g.
Have a great w/e,

bella luce e bella inquadratura, i colori rossi dei vestiti attirano l'attenzione e creano delle splendide sfumature nei riflessi.

Ahaha, a Tupperware "party,"...wow, that takes me back to my childhood when my mom used to do the same. :)
This is the kind of golden light any photographer would love to have, particularly for a scene of this nature. It provides an exponential amount of atmosphere to the imagery, and something which cannot be duplicated by any other means. Sure, there are those who can add it during post processing, but it just doesn't carry the same sensation of natures warmth and glow.
Another brilliant observation of a seemingly mundane moment, but your ability to realize the potential shines through....yes, pun intended. :) Carefully composed as well, and I love the long red reflection that stretches from the end of the dock to the bottom of the frame. Enjoy the weekend. Take good care.

Calm water and reflection in the water and soft waves
Charm for me boy fishing, and remember me memories, childhood throws
Photos are our memories reminded the prime subject of the photo, it is important to me, and a good idea to demonstrate the technique in the next step
This photo is a good and comprehensive subject, and the means of photography
I looked carefully at the photo, the photo charm
I hope you have a nice day, and every moment of life enjoy

Everyone is very quiet, alone a little bit dangerous of the little boy close to the water.
Your picture is very pleasant to look at.
I like the reflections between the small waves.
Excellent composition, with pleasant colours.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Living by the sea, one learn from early age about fishing technique.
I find this people teching the youger generation of a skill definitely learnt from their ancestors: The man whoes sitting gave a glance over the boy, kept examine what he was doing.
Nice moment collected with seascape in the suroounding's.
Enjoy your weekend,

I have just come back to Greece after few months of traveling and the scene looks very much the same as the one I spotted only yesterday in our port. I guess there not that much to do in small villages in the winter so chatting lazily can be one of the favorite activities. I like the whole composition with so much space - it makes the image light and pleasant. The colors are lovely thanks to this pretty warm light.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day

une très belle image, la scène simple se déroule sous une belle lumière; un moment sympa entre amis.

good title, yes, afternoon here is quiet. I like the warm light and reflections in water. Good shot.
Have a nice WE.

Tu reste loin mais on voit bien l'action qui se passe au bout du quai. Le rouge des vêtements capte le regard. On sent que la pêche est une entreprise familiale . Ils profitent bien du soleil.

Your idyllic Ayia Marina waterfront scene with fishermen and fisherboy is enhanced by the late afternoon lighting, radiating and reflected in the water.
Reminds me of many a Saturday, when my Father would awake me before sunrise to go on a fishing adventure to the California coast, or inland lake or river.
My love of Nature was stimulated at an early age...
eldancer1 (31359) 2014-02-01 7:47
It is said that fishermen go fishing not necessarily to catch but just to relax and visit with friends, this image somewhat confirm that notion. I like the low angle of lighting and it produce better colors. Good details. Well done, tfs.

Bonne mise au point sélective avec un léger flou sur l'arrière plan
Intéressante profondeur réfléchissante de l'avant plan

I liked the title just a quiet afternoon
we all need having a quiet afternoon after
a very difficult day
the red clothes add beauty and to the
impact of the reflections
I loved this golden light and in my opinion
everybody would like to have
the surface of the sea with so many tones
of colors very well composed is amazing
have a nice Sunday

Ja sam strastven ribolovac, ja volim ovakva mesta i trenutke ...
Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak sa ribolovcima, lepe boje i refleks na vodi.
Dete uziva u ribolovu i lepom danu sa suncem.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
I am an avid fisherman, I love these places and moments ...
Nice view and a moment ...
Good time recording, contrast and perspective, nice place and moment shown with fishermen, beautiful colors and reflection on the water.
A child enjoys fishing and beautiful day with the sun.
Good evening and all the best for the weekend, good luck.

It looks like one of the anglers is quite younger than the others. Their red garments stand out pleasantly in the late afternoon sun. The calm sea with its reflections is soothing as ever.
abmdsudi (46176) 2014-02-01 22:55
This is wonderfully bright and clear evening shot and the lovely low warm light playing on the rippled reflections with the avid anglers settle the focus of attention. This is fabulous, natural and your trained eye is able to identify the hidden beauty, it's mesmerising in rich colours, contrast and impressive. Very well done, TFS
mirosu (15156) 2014-02-02 20:03
I like this peaceful image, you have captured and placed the group of fishers in excellent way. The late afternoon light is very nice and the reflections in water superb.
Very well done.
Wish you a very nice week ahead.

La lumière de fin de journée est magnifique, réchauffe le petit groupe et donne de merveilleux reflets, une image entre l'ombre et la lumière super bien présenter et réaliser
nikkitta (16476) 2014-02-03 15:35
Hola Ourania querida
Quiet scene it seems , but in realllity full of action, chats, laughters as sounds at your back
On the other hand the calm serios men enjoying view and last rays of sum
Of course my admiration goes to the colorful reflets on the quiet waters, being the red one my prefered
Have a great week
holmertz (44362) 2014-02-04 4:18
Here you have captured a fine atmosphere among the men chatting and the child trying to catch a fish. The warm light of the setting sun has given the colours a beautiful natural saturation. You have placed the small group very well and surrounded them with a suitable amount of water and reflections.

Tupperware was really popular here a few years ago:)! I believe it's much nicer outside:)! A good scene, with nice golden light and reflections. The red colour stand out perfectly. I believe the little kid is really enjoying fishing!
