The Columbus Fontana in Santa-Margherita has 4 fish statues on sides.
I had chosen this POV, because there was a good contrast of the fish under the shadow, and the water-droplets sparkled with the sun-light.
Location of the Fontana: 44.334, 9.2137

ben colto l'effetto dell'acqua sulla fontana con un buon gioco di luci e ombre.
Taglio stretto che mette in mostra i particolari,

Sharp picture, excellent colors and light
Have a good week end

The waterdrops make this image wonderful, also through the light on the drops.
Soft colors, splendid picture.
Lovely composition, very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,

A very good close-up on this stony fish. I like the dappled lighting and the excellent detail to be observed. The water droplets and stonework are both very well rendered.

The capture of the water droplets is an asset to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Columbus fountain. The afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

The water cools the atmosphere, which seems very bright and hot. The view is cleverly chosen. The exposure and the exposure time are well controlled. Bravo.
Have a nice day

a great point of view and composition to show the strange sea creatures sculpted on the fontana. You've managed the framing, sharpness and lighting superbly and made the image delightful and very interesting. I love how the shade and the waterdrops wandering all over the frame isolate the details of the fountain from the surroundings. The play of light and shade on the sculpture and on the flying waterdrops is wonderful, the colours are lovely. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely day,

Four fountains crown.
Excellent choice of light and classical elements in evidence.
A neo-classicism that riorta Piazza Navona.
Elements sharp and the camera "immobilize" the drops of water glistening
A place that is presented with elegance and finesse

Great snapshot. I like the the way how you captured the falling water. A well chosen crop allows eyes to remain fixed on open mouth. The side light is excellent and your composition with the water drops works so well. Very nice!

the aggressive expression of this sculpture of the fish in the fountain worry us a bit, but in this composition you have compensated the power of the close-up with the beautiful effect of the water drops frozen in the air, because of the high shutter speed.
The light and the colors are very well managed, and the aesthetic result of the photo is very good.

Believe it or not, haven't seen a fountain with fish statues.The details are very nicely captured. I like the water drops looking like ice pellets. Nice colors and atmosphere.

The water is in chaos creating a splendid POV here. Colors, lighting, shadows, and clarity are presented perfectly, great job here Ike!!

Ciao caro Ike
Love this close up and how you've frozen the water in mid air. It makes a lovely graphism and exalts the already vibrant colours. Wonderful shot, thanks for sharing, have a lovely day.
Un caro saluto

Wonderful shoot from an excellent but so difficult POV.Splendid colors and the frozen water is marvelous. Great details and superb atmosphere so refreshing.
jemaflor (79970) 2012-08-06 6:44
Well managed good rsult with all these drops, good light and warm color for the stone, tfs.
danos (82665) 2012-08-06 8:22
fascinating the view as the presentation of the Columbus fontana as we can see the two of the four fish statues of it.I like the clarity of the image,as the falling drops that making the image more effective and charmy.
Have a good afternoon,Danos

Good Morning Ike,
A very unusual shot!
Excellent sculptural details.
For me, the very best and life-giving aspect of the shot is the use of those water droplets flying around the frame. Great!!!
have a lovely day,
sacimar (25971) 2012-08-07 4:19
I like this image, the moment you captured is good with the drops of water all around, the fountain is interesting,
kathryn_weir (2056) 2012-08-07 4:57
Thank you for your recent critique and also for your tip on TE etiquette. I am still quite new to the site and so learning how to find my way around. Enjoying the interaction enormously. This is a great capture. The very fast shutter freezing the water motion and the POV looking into the fishes eye , very effective. Placing the fishes gaping mouth and eye on the intersect is perfect composition.
Thanks for sharing and your advice

It's quite normal to see droplets falling from a fountain and you "froze" those beautifully, in association with the marine life represented by the stone fish.
jmdias (51959) 2012-08-19 3:12
very beautiful effects of light with the water falling. I liked these details.
even yesterday I was trying to make a plan to reach portofino using this village like a link.

Dobra ostrina i kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar tekst i kompozicija, lepa fontana.
Lep trenutak sa kapima vode koje lete u vazduh.
Good sharpness and contrast, beautiful color.
Good content and composition, beautiful fountains.
A nice moment with drops of water flying in the air.
All the best.

Un choix de POV bien choisi, bon rétro éclairages, la prise des gouttelettes, le poisson semble sourire :-)

The fish must be thinking, "instead of teasing me with drops of water, immerse me into it." Nice close-up, the frozen drops of water are the strong suit of this photo.
