First of a series of 6 pictures on Portofino, bay and boats, with it's green surroundings.
We were just on the vessel leaving from this luxurious town, as the light gave a multitude of colors, hope I conveyed it's beauty through those pictures.

Hello my friend,
nice the panoramic view of Portofino,with the converge of the houses in the center to creates depth in the image.The foreground yellow boat adds contrast between the colours as making the image even more effective.
Have a good Sunday,Danos

A fine view over this harbour with its delightful architecture. The image is well lit and has much of interest to occupy the viewer. I like the soft light and pastel tones. Very good sharpness.

Hi Ike,very nice and original point of view to take so well the Portofino bay,great and rich composition and very good details too,just a bit undersaturated.Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano
Royaldevon (43909) 2012-08-26 3:53
Well, certainly there are many colours in your shot, from the vivid luminous ones in the water, to the softer pastel shades of the buildings.
I like how you have used the f/g boat, nicely angled, to lead around the shor from left to right, taking in the many deatils of boats, buildings and vegetation, along the way.
Have a lovely Sunday,

I am sure this place must be amazing offering so many intensive tones and great details. The scene you have captured is very nice. Especially the yellow boat presented in the foreground is an eye-catching element of your composition. Well done.
pierrefonds (71691) 2012-08-26 5:07
The distance between the boats and the hills is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the boats, of the buildings and of the hills. A nice place to visit. have a nice day.
jhm (160917) 2012-08-26 5:15
Nice architecture picture with the facades.
Also the boats in the marina maker this image completely.
Sharpness and clarity are pleasant for look at.
Excellent panorama view about these area.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
mirosu (16273) 2012-08-26 5:41
Nice photo of small boats bay. The deep depth of field is perfect. A well presented crop allows eyes to remain fixed not only on the boats abut also on the green hill in the BG. The great light on the green hill and the colorful housing around the bay also lends a lovely contrast to the scene. Well done.
sacimar (28969) 2012-08-26 6:24
this is a good postcard of Portofino, I like the combination of boats and colorful houses, well seen and presented,
UlfE (14641) 2012-08-26 6:30
A really fine composition with the all the boats in the foreground and all the colourful houses surrounding this small port. I also enjoy the excellent and certainly very natural colours. TFS and have a nice Sunday!
krzychu30 (15512) 2012-08-26 6:54
certainly the variety of different,well-saturated colors help to animate the scene and make it more bautiful.But I think and without this Portofino is so much beautiful and charming place,that it looks always great.I like also the low POV almost from a water level to immortalize so many dettails as possible,from the boats in the foregrount,to beauty of the architecture,till those gren hills in the distance.Excellently composed image.
Have a nice sunday

too strong sharpening
rbellemare (2109) 2012-08-26 7:24
Nice presentation of this beautiful port. I like to see those building close to the water. The yellow of the first boat add to the quality of this picture.
Have a nice day.
JFS (32459) 2012-08-26 7:30
The composition is really nice, one can imagine how nice is this places...natural colors and good light. A luxury post card!
jcpix (13950) 2012-08-26 7:35
Hello again Ike,
Another slightly different viewpoint of Portofino, which is refreshing to see. The yellow boat in the foreground really stands out against the green and blue of the scene. Great composition, well done!
guld (1042) 2012-08-26 8:05
very nice shot of Portofino. I have been there in 1972 and I must say, it hasn't changed much. I love the POV here. Great photo.
eldancer1 (36343) 2012-08-26 9:45
Beautiful architecture! I wouldn't mind living in this seaside village. Nicely captured with good lighting and dof with sharp details. Very well done, tfs.
(I read in today's paper that visitors to Kfar Kedem park ride on donkeys equiped with Wi-Fi router, is nothing sacred anymore?)
cornejo (47266) 2012-08-26 9:50

A pleasant view across this attractive harbour with the delightfully buildings in the background looking resplendent under the wooded hillside. The variety of colors is stunning. The frame seems very rich.
Have a good week,
carlosmarin (11954) 2012-08-26 12:23
I like this frame of the port of Portofino, with good composition, colors and light.
baddori (20161) 2012-08-26 13:47
Big city luxury edanche history of the "Great Capital" Italian.
The villas on the promontory and the hills.
The large "nobility" of entrepreneurship in 1900, ... then the new rich and much tourism.
Excellent image sharpness and richness of color and
emka (107755) 2012-08-26 14:02
Hi Ike, Nice view from Portofino. Nice POV chosen, great depth, but the colours seem to me less vivid than I remember.

a wonderful point of view on the beautiful town, its harbour and surroundings. The composition is very interesting and the excellent lighting and clarity allow us to delight in the abundance od details and colours. Depth and perspective are solid, elegant and captivating. The colours, the brightness of the light and the atmosphere are very pleasing. Congratulations and thank you!

lakshmip1949 (19081) 2012-08-27 4:53
Another excellent composition showing these beautiful colored houses with the mountain in the background. That yellow boat in the foreground is definitely an eye catcher.The panoramic view is very beautiful.

Classic shot of a wonderful, fabulous town of Portofino. Cut to often seen on postcards from Italy. Excellent colors, sharpness a bit weak.
הצהריים טובים. ירייה קלסית של עיר נפלאה נהדרת של פורטופינו. חותך לראה לעתים קרובות בגלויות מאיטליה. צבעים מצוינים, חדות קצת חלשות. .
Cricri (126732) 2012-08-27 10:31
Une vue qui plaît telle une carte postale, bien construite avec le port, suivi des bâtiments colorées ,puis les montagnes verts, j'aime la lumière et la barque jaune en avant plan
gus72 (3719) 2012-08-27 20:03

adramad (49962) 2012-08-28 11:49
That perfect bay and treat these facades surrounding the same, wonderful POV with boats in the foreground, and the green hills surrounding the natural amphitheater of the bay and population.
A place I would love to know, your magnificent composition increases my wishes.
Very good light and color.
Have a good night.
ACL1978 (7511) 2012-08-29 8:24
Beautifully composed shot, Ike - the brightness of the boat in FG really anchors the shot well (pardon the pun), and the panoramic look at the harbor is gorgeous - I love the row houses at right, and the colors they provide to the shot.
josepmarin (58359) 2012-08-29 10:09
I like this nice composition in which you have combined with a great graphical efficiency the charming architecture of the houses of colors in Portofino, the greenery of the hills, and the boats anchored in the port in foreground.
The image is sharp, has a few very natural colors and a good luminosity, you have done a great work.
jmdias (69230) 2012-08-30 7:34
portofino was out my plans but your photos changed my mind and I will try to include the place in my few time in genova.
nice view catching the group of boats and the façades and green slopes ahead. nice mood.
bayno (18344) 2012-08-30 23:02
I see it's your tour in Italy was pleasant and really beautiful places you've visited, this image is delicious and well composed, excellent POV and natural colors, even good depth...nice one...
delpeoples (59846) 2012-08-31 1:11
Ciao caro Ike
Another idyllic scene from this wonderful little town. The colours, the crowd of boats and the cramped architecture all demonstrate how busy, cosmopolitan and summery this gorgeous place is. I like how you've positioned the yellow boat in the foreground to guide the eye into the rest of the image. Well done!

Robert1969 (7160) 2013-01-30 2:04
A picture this very nice diagonal lines in it
(boats and the "line" of the roofs) and it's
a picture with layers and both creates a nice
depth in the picture...Good point of view and
composition. Light management is also very
kato (11630) 2014-01-03 18:31
You're capturing well this sea port by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the port town with buildings with colorful facade, a lot of boats anchored to the bay and green hill in behind. Here looks like a tasteful place remaining old atmosphere.
fritzi007 (12518) 2014-08-25 7:44
I lack a bit of sharpness, but otherwise OK.
many friendly greetings
mcmtanyel (29668) 2016-10-27 20:17
The colors are vivid and the view is tremendous, as though the forest is growing on top of the buildings.
