Moored boats line the jetty at the colourful fishing village of Portmagee. Will the weather remain clear? This is the place to take a trip to the Skellig Islands weather permitting

A very attractive composition, beautifully lit and with very good saturated colours. The fishing boats drawn up in a line makes an excellent frame and guide the viewer towards the far quayside with its multi-coloured façades. That sky is gorgeous as indeed are the reflections. I trust the weather did remain clear for you.

irresistible shot of this little fishing village. Love the sense of tranquillity here and the bright colours that stand out so beautifully despite the dimming of the day. Stunning!
Enjoy your Sunday - B.

On dirait bien que les propriétaires de bateaux se sont donné le mot pour peindre leurs embarcations avec les mêmes couleurs que les maisons sur le quai à l'arrière plan. Une très belle diagonale dans l'image ainsi qu'une superbe gestion de la lumière.

i colori e la composizione sono impeccabili.
Il riflesso nelle acque del porto aggiunge un valore maggiore alla bellezza della foto.
Straordinaria la nitidezza.
Ciao e buona domenica

A very pleasant mild light on this very colorful little village
As simple as beautiful
best regards, have a nice sunday

Quelle belle image du port et des maisons colorées, j'aime comme vous avez cadrer les bateaux en diagonale, laissant une grande place aux reflets du ciel, un ciel magnifique ce qui n'est pas souvent le cas en Irlande

My memories from 46 years ago may not be crystal clear, but I don't remember Irish villages as neat and colourful as this. I wonder if it always looked this way or if it has been more recently spruced up to attract tourists. With all these colourful boats as well, and the superb reflections, you certainly found a perfect place for a photo. It looks great, but I get a feeling that the heat wasn't overwhelming.

Gorgeous photo of the small fishing harbor of Portmagee indeed. Lovely warm light, superb reflection of the sky in the still water and sumptuously saturated colors makes this a real winner. Besides the ever so attractive fishing boats, the row of colored houses completes this composition beautifully.
have a grease sunday

Phenomenal shot, this town has such a vast array of color, once more you teach me to open my eyes more in my own country. The diagonal created by the boats is so pleasing, and to top all this off with a mirror like reflection of the delicately painted sky is just superb. This is like a very beautiful painting.
Thanks once again
Subhogen (4067) 2014-04-13 9:38
A beautiful well planned view from the harbour. I like the way the colourful houses in the BG is balanced by the colourful boats in the FG. Spectacular cloud formations and their reflections in the water. Good pun intended in the title as well :-) A smart presentation, I like it. Thanks for sharing.
papagolf21 (105198) 2014-04-13 11:33
Bonsoir, chère Rosemary,
Un pur régal dès que l'on ouvre la version large !
Tout est beau dans cette composition.
Il est bien difficile de détacher son regard de l'ensemble.
RhodieIke (11744) 2014-04-13 14:10
With weather like this comes a bonus for us photographers as we get fantastic moody light, such in this image of yours in Portmagee.
Love the colours and the reflections of the clouds.
Wonderful, Top marks.
npecanhuk (75660) 2014-04-13 17:25
Very beautiful picture with special regards to the composition, exposure and colors!
I love that sky and its reflections on the mirror-like water surface!
TFS - congrats,
jjcordier (79297) 2014-04-13 22:33
Très belle lumière sur ce port aux bateaux et maisons colorés. La bande de brume apporte un peu de mystère à l'image.
williewhistler (16404) 2014-04-14 1:54
viewed at full size this is even more attractive if that were possible,the saturated colours of the boats across the diagonal in the harbour combine beautifully with the picturesque houses to provide a stunning harbour scene.
The seagulls atop the masts are the finishing touch to a beautifully composed shot.
Kind regards Les.
gildasjan (43654) 2014-04-14 3:56
La lumière est sublime,elle permet de bien mettre en valeur ces couleurs si typiques de L'Irlande.Une image également bien composée.
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-04-14 7:21
this is an amazing picture and I like everything about it. The little town has plenty of charm with its colorful houses and the rows of the boats. The perfect reflection of the sky on the water surface is just unbelievable - it looks like massive mirror - well done for choosing ideal moment to catch it. Superb light, colors and sharpness!
Thanks for sharing!
dip (23890) 2014-04-14 7:39
wonderful image of the fishing village with the multicolored houses,
the clarity and sharpness are excellent,perfect management of light and colors as well,
thanks for sharing,
Kielia (24077) 2014-04-14 8:10
superb light brings out the colors and contrasts in this attractive scene. Different boats make a great subject. The photographer’s perspective is excellent. My compliments!
photoray (13981) 2014-04-14 8:40
Fine view of the boats lined up at rest, the colorful paint jobs on the waterfront buildings, then the sun reflected clouds in the calm water.
dkmurphys (61967) 2014-04-14 10:13
Lovely atmosphere and colors in this small port. I like the perfect reflections also, brings even more open space feeling.
Have a nice week.
ourania (48684) 2014-04-14 14:28
I remember this port from a previous photo of yours that I also like very much. This is even richer and more impressive, each of the elements depicted makes the greatest impact possible, despite the light that would have put off many photographers (myself included, of course). You worked with perspective and symmetry in an inspired way, definition is superb and your creative touch on the colour and contrast management makes this view unique. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
carlo62 (51994) 2014-04-14 14:55
bella l'intersezione della linea delle barche e quella delle case con i loro colori vivaci.
Straordinario è il cielo, soprattutto grazie al suo riflesso, l'acqua funziona perfettamente da specchio.
PS ormai i giorni sono pochi....
brianmcc (6219) 2014-04-16 12:44
this is a lovely scene, and typical of the irish harbour. you have framed this perfectly with the boats angled to merge with the buildings along the centre of the image. the colours are bright and very appealing. the clouds and their reflections in the water add an extra element of interest.
macjake (70515) 2014-04-17 9:25
this is very sweet indeed.
marina's are one of my all time favorite subjects, and when you can travel to Ireland, get colors like this and more rainbow colors in the bg houses its hard to beat.
wouldn't change a thing - other than me being here too!
Didi (60590) 2014-04-17 11:30
Wonderful direction lights ambiance a very good moment for taking this picture
Good control of the exposure
Interesting tsunami of louds in the background
rogerl (1620) 2014-04-17 15:17
Rosemary, the colors, and the calm sea, are really beautiful. I swear, the Irish just tell us that it rains all the time to keep the tourists away. You timed this shot beautifully, with the low sun from the left and a very interesting sky with an odd cloudbank at the bottom. Thanks.
mesutilgim (96248) 2014-04-18 1:03
I missed this wonderfull capture ! Another good lecture for a perfect pov and light management as well as pictorial layout.
TFS and have a nice weekend
annjackman (21899) 2014-04-18 4:31
The colourful houses and boats make this look like a village on CBeebies. You can see what I watch on TV these days! Seriously though I love the light and colours caught at an exceptionally beautiful time of day. The clouds are very well reflected in the water of the harbour. The boats make a very good diagonal so well done for choosing such a great viewpoint.
A gorgeous image.
Kind Regards, Ann
tatadalou (7459) 2014-04-27 7:27
Great shot (even more spectaclar in large version). The sky, and specially its reflection, and the light make your picture wonderful. Excellent sharpness and contrasts management.
Good job !
adores (46079) 2014-05-06 16:59
This seems a really peceful place! I like the composition with the boats and the street of colourful houses and the sky is really something, I just love is reflection on the water. Really good work!
ikeharel (74701) 2014-06-13 7:08
Taken me few seconds to realize what made this picture so alive and vivid, Rosemary.
It is the sky that shine both aloft and over the water. Combined with the multi-colors of the boats and houses - all culminate to a wonderful scene.
Cheers and good evening,
