The small village of Manarola in the Cinque Terre area of Italy's Ligurian coast. The foreground is of a platform about 50 to 100 feet above the water where the village's boats are kept. The boats are lowered to the water using a winch, then the fisherman meet the boats at the water by going down the stairway just under the pastel houses across the way. Picture was taken late in the afternoon when the sun was shining a nice soft light on the town.

another top shot, Colin, of this eye catching scene. The vivid colors are beautiful, and the vertical framing works great.
Well done on the postcard perfect shots!

Wonderful composition very well thought in this perfect vertical format. The overall quality is superb and I like the way you have used the wall to guide the eye in the image.
Have a nice day
Best regards, Christian

First, my apologize because I can't bring the points for your splendid picture at this moment, but I couldn't leave to write some note about your good work. In my opinion, this picture is very well composed with shinned lights and colors, and by the way I appreciate a lot the fishermen's daily life because I think that these people, in general, have a hard life. Good work! Best regards, Consuelo

A very good sight to this lovely village: colors, good use of light, good use of "vertical" format and especially nice composition with a part for the village and a part for the sea.

a phantastic architecture. I like the vivid colours and the good composition that allows us to feel the depth and imagine the work of the fishermen.

This small village is very special, tipic and beauty and you catch it very well. Good colors and light. It is interesting your note explaining how the boats and fishermen will get in to the water.
