Nearly hidden in its own harbour, the small port of Union Hall has always had a strong seafaring tradition and provides a safe shelter for its own active fishing fleet as well as anchorage to pleasure boats. The main source of employment is fishing and the pier has its own ice plant and fish processing factory run by Glenmar Shellfish Ltd. This shot was taken from Keelbeg Pier looking towards the single lane Poulgorm Bridge.

The bright red trawler is well framed and makes an excellent pointer into the bay. I like very much the vivid colour contrasts and the fine clarity. Thanks for sharing.

the graphical effect you´ve achieved here is superb!
Red boat contrasts really great with green landscape in the distance.I like also the way you placed the boat in the frame,which fills excellently the FG.
Have a nice day

The bright red trawler other than being photogenic is multi-functional as well from your well chosen POV. It acts as a fine lead line into the sea and also presents a fine diagonal across the frame. The green highlands in the BG is complementing the scene nicely. Thanks for sharing a good one.

boats are always going to grab my attention and bright red ones all the more so. You only have to take a look in my gallery to see that I find them irresistible subjects. I really like your POV here as it makes the viewer follow the diagonal of the boat out into the beauty of its setting. Exquisite detailing as always and a really captivating shot from the Emerald Isle.

in questa foto il rosso del battello ruba la scena ed attrae immediatamente l'attenzione pur senza distogliere dalle bellezze del paesaggio irlandese.
La composizione è perfetta è l'avere accentuato la saturazione del colore non disturba. Ottimo il contrasto.
Ciao e buona giornata

J'aime le point de vue qui donne un bel angle au bateau rouge dans l'image. Il semble pointer quelque chose au loin comme un indicateur de direction.

This red boat is an eye catcher. It contrasts the green hill in the distance beautifully. This place is so peaceful. It's very enjoyable.

This is a bright and attractive composition with perfect light and colours in spite of the grey sky. The red trawler is well placed pointing diagonally across the bay, and the lush green hills create a beautiful background. I like the inclusion of the two ropes making elegant curves in the foreground. It would have been easily done to overlook them and cut them off.

Like the effect produced the long exposure on the waters that seems like silk with small boats of it
Of course that the main protagonist is the red trawler, positioned in diagonal it helps with perspective and deepness, nor to speak of contrast
Atractive landscape at the back
Well done, kind regards

Le rouge du bateau contraste à merveille avec les verts irlandais.

Bold bright red, image of this fishing vessel, your Pov, is great as we feel we can go on board the boat.
Splendid view of the harbour and bridge, well managed.

Ciao cara Rosemary
Even in thumbnail, this was such an unmistakably Irish photo. Beautiful bright colours, despite the diffused light. The depth of field is sharp as a pin, every detail of those wonderful green fields evident and I like the tight framing with the boat on the angle. A lovely shot, processed immaculately.

Marvellous warm cold color contrasts between the bright red trawler and the blue sea and sky. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. A pleasant diffused light with excellent shadow detail. Have a nice weekend!

Love the capture on a greyish day and still water as this does also add a certain atmosphere and mood Indeed hard to ignore the foreground red boat, it guides the eye in the whole scene. It's a well organised, balanced and sharp focused image in excellent clarity and the boost in contrast makes quite a difference, Lovely capture, Congrats.
