Leaving Portofino by a boat to Santa-Margherita.
Final memory from a known place with two pictures (see #5 on the WS, a closer view - same place) on the beautiful architecture and combined with a stunning seafront, made this place so superior, for many tourists.

Hello Ike, lovely photo here, i wonder how Portofino looks now in late autumn. Good composition with the marina between the two shades of blue, sky and water. Good sharpness also.

Excellente prise de vue en trois plans et très joli village au bord de l'eau bien entouré par une luxurieuse végétation. Le bleu de la mer est magnifique et l'harmonie de couleurs est superbe. Un belle carte postale présentée dans un bel éclairage.
Félicitations!... et bonne soirée,

Hello Ike, very nice picture of this lovely view of this beautiful place. An interesting and beautiful image very well composed and framed. With good PVO, great clarity, depth, light and color. Very good job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing.
Good night and happy week.
Best regards and best wishes.

a lovely last glance to the wonderful town and its magnificent ambiance. I like your composition and the way you have divided the frame between sea, land and sky. The capture of the boat's wake adds vividness and maybe a little sadness at leaving such a charming place. The light is a little harsh at this angle but appears sweeter and more moderate in your workshop photo, which has richer colours too. Both pictures have captured the scenery with superb clarity and in both I love to look at the tall white house and its shade. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

another nice view with the colored buildings and the gardens above. I liked the intense blue of the water here.

Belle approche sur ce lieu plein de charme par sa situation au bord de mer, et ces couleurs, j'aime la vue mais j'ai plus une préférence pour celle en WS
Royaldevon (42533) 2012-11-14 0:34
good Morning Ike,
The slight wake from the boat, leads nicely to the shore of Portofino, where the buildings climb elegantly up the hilside, neatly sanwiched between the blue of the water and the blue of the sky.
Lovely, natural colours and sharp details.
Have a lovely day,
jhm (158904) 2012-11-14 2:29
I like both pictures but I prefer the first picture through the wonderful angle.
Beautiful place with blue water of the sea and nice buildings in background.
Excellent composition, pleasant colors.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice day,
snunney (105503) 2012-11-14 4:02
The pastel tones of the architecture play well against the beautiful sea. A lovely capture with much detail to appreciate.
pierrefonds (70455) 2012-11-14 5:34
The trees are freaming well the village. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the houses and of the buildings. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Wonderful town of Portofino on the wooded hills above the beautiful blue bay. I was there once, twice, a true paradise on earth. Superb photo quality.
הצהריים טובים. העיר נפלאה של פורטופינו על ידי גבעות מיוערות מעל למפרץ הכחול היפה. אני הייתי שם פעם, פעמים, גן עדן עליי אדמות. איכות תמונה מעולה. .

This farewell shot to Portofino must had been a sad moment for you, leaving such a cozy beautiful place you showed us from different angles to post an informative tour for futur touristic visits.
Appears magnificent set in greenery.
Shalom and many thanks for the "how to"!
Silvio1953 (151627) 2012-11-14 11:30
Ciao Ike, great view of lovely place, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
papagolf21 (108031) 2012-11-14 11:52
Bonsoir, cher Ike,
Cela fait plaisir à voir une telle composition. La mer d'un bleu azur, de magnifiques villas, une végétation luxuriante couronnée d'un ciel d'un bleu pur.
Tout n'est que beauté à travers cette réalisation.
jcpix (13930) 2012-11-14 15:11
Wow, I can't believe how blue that water is...it looks amazing, especially in contrast with the lush green hillside. Pretty good shot from a moving object Ike, probably wouldn't recognize this as Portofino without the note. No matter the location, this is still a very nice capture of classic Italian "La Dolce Vita!"
Sonata11 (33971) 2012-11-14 20:44
interesting composition and great framing of this beautiful architecture ans surroundings. Wonderfully executed like always. Very impressive place. Like it and pleasure to look at. Thank you Ike.
All the best,

What a beautiful coast, I like the vivid colors and light
sharp photo, good contrast
Have a nice day
ciakgiak (30433) 2012-11-15 6:28
davvero un gran peccato lasciare un posto del genere, e proprio per questo l'immagine assume una lieve nota di malinconia!
Ma questo ti ha dato la possibilità di confezionare una splendida cartolina, luminosa, nitida e colorata. Eccellente la qualità dell'immagine.
Molto bello anche il WS con la vista ravvicinata.
Un caro saluto
COSTANTINO (68902) 2012-11-15 9:17

adramad (48980) 2012-11-15 9:40
A wonderful corner in a splendid POV from the sea, the view of this coast is ideal as abundant trees, the seaside town is a postcard perfect.
Very good light with a nice colorful soft tones.
Have a nice day.
mauro61 (52857) 2012-11-15 13:12
ripresa dal mare la cittadina ha un grande fascino per la schiera di case sul mare.
Buona la resa con tanto verde,
Gigidusud (21247) 2012-11-15 13:52
An other POV of Portofino with nice light and splendid vegetation.Well done!
jlbrthnn (76039) 2012-11-16 4:41
We perceive the strong light, you have been able to control. Buildings and greenery are cleverly placed between the blue sky and sea. Quality is very good. Bravo.
Have a nice day
delpeoples (59684) 2012-11-16 5:48
A sad moment, I would imagine, leaving a paradise like this. You provide us with a unique POV, that from the sea on a boat. The summer colours are lovely, and you have captured the details of this very particular architecture so well. I like the trail in the water that the wake of the boat has left.
Warm regards and happy Friday

Didi (60590) 2012-11-18 2:11
Very beautiful place for holidays
In summer the best moment for taking picture is early in the morning or around the evening moment
claudeD (41246) 2012-11-24 2:36
very interesting view from Portofino with very good colors and sharpness. Remembers me my last holidays in Italy.Very well done.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
Robert1969 (7160) 2013-02-05 8:46
Very nice surrounding with beautiful blue water.
The picture has very nice layers, this and the
'trail" of the boat creates a nice depth and
gives the picture some movement....Well done
p.s. you wrote that my picture was taken in
October, but that was the 25th of December.

I found my love in Portofino
Perchè nei sogni credo ancor
Lo strano gioco del destino
A Portofino m'ha preso il cuor
Nel dolce incanto del mattino
Il mare ti ha portato a me
Socchiudo gli occhi
E a me vicino
I grew up listening to this song by Dalida. Thanks for showing us a piece of that song.
kato (11630) 2013-07-13 8:42
You're capturing well this place by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the port town with tasteful/colorful old houses, and faced to beautiful/blue bay. It's impressive in rich surrounding greenery, too.
fritzi007 (12120) 2015-02-02 10:17
beautiful coastline, well done!
ChrisJ (117201) 2015-02-11 14:21
Looks lovely. I just spent the one night in Genova before heading to Nice in France. Good sharpness, saturation and well framed and composed using the rule of thirds. The wake of the boat adds a lead in line towards the shoreline. I like the juxtaposing of the buildings hugging the steep hillside at left with the greener more forested section at right. Tfs!
berek (50506) 2015-04-21 23:00
Good morning Ike,
Excellent shooting in three planes and very pretty village waterfront property surrounded by lush vegetation. The blue of the sea is beautiful and the color composition is superb. congratulations.
All the best.
