A photo taken in the Monte-Carlo Bay area, where millions of pounds worth of boats & yachts sit with people like me looking on enviously. A very impressive sight I must say, This is the one I wanted. However with the credit crunch I was a couple of pounds short.

Very expensive place Monte Carlo and it,s not reachable for us simpley people
Good picture of this boats in Monte Carlo harbour
Gerrit (51935) 2009-02-08 3:18
Which one, Wilson, Haha
Wonderful boat and a curious collection of ships of all sorts. Very well framed photo.
Jean-Luc (5488) 2009-02-08 3:35
Je comprend parfaitement ce rêve car je suis aussi très amateur de ces vieux gréements d'une autre époque. Ils font rêver par leur beauté rustique mais aussi par leur histoire de vieux coursiers des mers.
Une composition tout à fait réussie!
ocskaymarci (2690) 2009-02-08 6:16
Very impressive boats that I would also accept for sure! (:
You had perfect lights here to carry out beautiful and vivid colours. I also like the way you composed the photo and framed it with the two yahts on the sides.
Budapestman (82620) 2009-02-08 8:56
Beautiful ships, blue sky, superb mood. Always in other harbour...first on Rodosz, next on Malta. I would be able to travel around on the Mediterranean Sea on a ship like this. Have a nice Sunday!
danos (97831) 2009-02-08 12:31
really nice this sailing boat that in combination with the others that anchored in the Monte-Carlo bay are eye catchers for a lot of people.I like the brilliant light and the vivid colours of the scene, this day of September.Well done.
Have a nice week,Danos
mesutilgim (95260) 2009-02-08 13:51

dans cette scène animée, le bateau ressort bien et sous un bon angle dynamique dirais-je. Une photo où domine le bleu, estivale et agréable.
siolaw (38292) 2009-02-08 23:36
Somehow the scene is kind of messy, but your dream yacht, the only black one (i suppose you don't mean the dinghy! ;D) attracts the eye and 'anchors' the compo. Color and sharpness are spot on.
Graal (102894) 2009-02-08 23:56
good reportage from Monte Carlo, amazing group of boats. Fine quality of photo. Great weather You had. I like it.
fulvio52 (8314) 2009-02-09 2:32
Good morning, Wilson.
Great framing of a vast array of boats, excellent lighting and definition. When it comes down to it, all I can do is look at this kind of wealth & beauty and sigh... LOL!!! Have a great day, I'll be seeing you.
Photo65Net (43120) 2009-02-09 3:35
Nice compo with these boats.
I like the sunny colors you caught.
Have a nice day,
BWJ (3094) 2009-02-09 5:09
A very nice pictures with lovely colors and brightness. I like the way you framed the picture by including the front portion of two yachts. A great POV! Monte Carlo is an incredibly rich and impressive place to see. Thanks for sharing.
Cricri (119495) 2009-02-09 9:15
Vraiment trés joli ce bateau qui peut faire rêver plus d'un, belle lumiére et couleurs qui le met encore plus en valeur
mauro61 (52855) 2009-02-09 9:39
immagine di mare che evoca vacanze e viaggi...
bellissimi colori con un'ottima luce e composizione piena, bravo
patdeph (35748) 2009-02-09 9:47
if I could buy a boat like this,I would do it immediatly,as you say this is a dream of boat,superb!It's standing very well out the blue sky and water,and the fact that each boats around it is white,enhance its beauty very much!Thi is very well framed too!Splendid!
claudeD (38720) 2009-02-09 9:48
I was in the harbor of Monaco for several times and I was always fascinated by the amazing yachts which can be seen there.Excellent picture with remains me the beautiful summer holidays in the South of France.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
Silvio1953 (143184) 2009-02-09 11:54
Ciao Wilson, lovely composition with beauutiful boat, beautiful reflections and fantastic colors, very well done, ciao Silvio
Vasa (515) 2009-02-09 16:00
So many different boats on one picture. Only yellow submarin of Beatles is not here. Or, it is in the water..
Nice idea and so good realization, Wilson, dear friend!
stego (24132) 2009-02-09 16:14
You have good taste my friend! Instead of choosing one of those aerodynamic modern gasoline burners, you chose the much more charming and elegant sail boat. If, like you, I wasn't too short on pounds, euros or whatever, I'd be very happy to lend you money to buy it on the condition that you took me with you on a trip through the Mediterranean.
About the photo: I did a very nice and well thought compo, putting the sail boat on the left with the other boats surrounding it in a way that makes it stand out. Good clarity and colours.
Nicou (142130) 2009-02-10 0:42
Mangigique vue sur ces beaux bâteaux, des gros, des petit, un netteté et luminisité parfaite, ce bleu dominant, superbe compo.
Bravo et amitié
JCG (35129) 2009-02-10 1:04
There is everything here to satisfy lovers of fine vessels. A harmonious and pleasant unit under a beautiful light. Actually that old boat is very beautiful, I love. A resting image on the inverse of this windy morning today, thank you Wilson.
With all my friendships and a very good day,
gunbud (34066) 2009-02-10 3:31
Beautifully busy harbor scene.
The large rubber dighny makes quite a figure cutting between the beautiful yachts.
The cloudless blue sky and the subtle reflections in the riffling harbor complete this wonderful coastal scene.
jhm (152938) 2009-02-10 5:04
I think that more people have these dream, a great sailboat.
I as poorman shall alone can look at when the rich man allow to pass.
I am very satisfied with my live without boat.
Quality and sharpness are superb.
Composition and perspective are also very well. TFS.
feather (51130) 2009-02-10 7:05
Ah well if it's just a couple of pounds I can give it to you for a half share! ;D
Lovely shot with excellent composition, with your dream on the left while the 'also-rans' fill up the space. Those tiny touches of red make a big differnce to the impact of the image.
carper (96) 2009-02-10 9:48
it's a dream boat Wilson,and Monaco is a nice place.
a pleasant shot, well taken, good point of view, fine details, good job I like it, have a nice evening.
UlfE (14641) 2009-02-10 10:17
My apologies for not having seen your latest post. Excellent shot. I really like you POV between two other boats. It adds a feeling of standing there yourself looking at the boat that is approaching. Also wonderful light and colours. I seen these boats myself and I am not envious of those people on board those boats. You have the impression they never leave the boat and always have dinner on board. Perhaps a dream boat but not necessarily a dream life. TFS and have a nice evening!
ALIRIZA (16423) 2009-02-10 12:07
Wonderful blue sky, beautiful ships and very nice scene from harbour. Well done my dear friend...
Philippe (11836) 2009-02-10 12:55
Hi, Wilson. A good off-centre composition with the two boats in the foreground leading the eye towards the main point of interest. Good contrast between the blue of the sea and sky and the white of the boats.
Have a nice evening,
vinicio (23423) 2009-02-10 13:47
It's also my dream boat :) 50%? :)
Nice and dreaming view, compliments Wilson.
pierrefonds (66436) 2009-02-10 15:16
The reflections in the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the boats. The subject is well frame. The intensity of the light brings out the colors. Have a nice day.
trekks (14348) 2009-02-10 19:50
Super rich and famous lifestyle. This makes a fine scenery of the marina with so many expensive boats and you are really going to be envied by TE as proud owner of this one when you strike your Lottery. Despite the cluster of boats, you have tried to isolate the brown boat as the masterpiece with its masts and color to stand out. Good work.
AROBN54 (11475) 2009-02-10 19:59
you are too funny! I think I'd probably be a couple of dollars short, too. :))) When my Navy ship went to Monaco there were yachts there as big as it. This is fabulous! Magnificent light, marvelous color and clarity, sharp clear detail and the larger boat is perfectly placed and contrasts wonderfully in your composition. MAD good shot! Many thanks and warmest regards,
axiotea (21651) 2009-02-10 20:57
It looks quite busy on the Monte-Carlo Bay ;)
The sky makes for a good BG on which all the elements stand out well. You had an excellent light as well and I can understand your dream for this boat (the one with the wooden body)...
I've noticed some dust spots on the image, probably(hopefully not) on your sensor.
TopGeo (38216) 2009-02-11 0:09
Hello Wilson,A superb picture and a superb dream for me! Beautiful sailboat, with excellent composition with blue sky, superb mood. Always in marine good framing! give a great prospect to the image. The big boat that impressed me him you have in the picture in the place that dominate!
jlbrthnn (76037) 2009-02-11 3:27
I am of agreement with your choice, these superb boat is much more cordial than the Incredible boats of the large billionaires. The light, the colors, quality are perfect. Cheer.
Have a nice day
snunney (99088) 2009-02-11 5:23
A good composition with crisp clear colours. I like the composition and the disposition of the boats about the frame. The wake of the dinghy brings a dynamism to the image. No cost for dreaming :-)
maltese (22875) 2009-02-11 6:16
Quand tu auras acheté ton splendide bateau, je veux bien venir avec toi pour faire une croisière ;o))
Une très belle réalisation sous ce ciel limpide
Très bien vu!!
plimrn (21344) 2009-02-11 11:16
You've framed your dream perfectly; very interesting to bookend it between the the two sets of boat bumpers while the speeding run-about adding some action. The clarity of colors is also wonderful. We lived on a sailboat for seven years while our son was in grade school; it is an idyllic life for the young. Right now, I'm really glad to have electricity and not be rowing out to the boat while carrying the water in 5 gallon jugs. I am SO glad that we've always been such, "Let'sdo it NOW," people.
papagolf21 (101944) 2009-02-11 11:32
Bonjour, cher Wilson,
Vous avez bon goût, même dans un rêve ! il faut reconnaître que ce genre de bateau dans la marina de Monte-Carlo n'est pas courant. Il a fière allure parmi les yachts. Une image pleine de soleil et de chaleur. Je remarque une embarcation type pneumatique dont je me contenterais bien !
Une très belle prise qui laisse rêveur.
gracious (20025) 2009-02-11 13:54
Richmen paradise indeed with those beautiful boats and yachts!
your dream boat really looks great which captured with the perfect angle!
looks nice with a fine weather like this, hope we can meet over this beautiful place!
take care and warmest regards
macondo (19516) 2009-02-12 2:05
A relatively modest desire, this boat, compared to some of the 'ships' on offer in this port. You timed the shot well, catching what appears to be the owner speeding up on his rubber launch. Nice angle of view, and the pieces on either side in the bottom corners make a good framing device to add depth and create the effect of 'spying' on the rich.
John_F_Kennedy (43665) 2009-02-12 22:59
The perspective to capture this nice sailor. Lovely details and colours. Yes, it's a dream. Well done.
jemaflor (97287) 2009-02-13 11:00
Nice boat well taken from this pov, beautiful light for colours and reflections on sea.
chrisnet (22978) 2009-02-14 10:02
Yes it's a nice place with these wonderful boats and the superb blue sky, the framing is well done.
MLINES (12516) 2009-02-14 13:00
Hi Wilson, It is good that we can still dream of these things. It shows your heart still beats strongly. Well presented image from one of the most expensive marinas on the globe. The blue sea and clear skies make the ideal backdrop. Maybe we both helped pay for this with petrol at the pump or similar, so in a way you are a part owner! TFS Murray
Behind most fortunes is a crime - maybe here too.
gildasjan (43608) 2009-02-16 7:01
Effectivement un beau bateau de rêve et quel bleu pour cette image tant dans le ciel que sur la mer!
Juntas (7960) 2009-02-16 8:36
Hi Wilson. A dream indeed :-). Very good compo with great colors and sharpness. Very nice job. Regards. Paulo
ahmetgedikli (25605) 2009-02-16 13:36
Yes, the 100th point for me...
Wonderful photo! The POV, lighting and composition are very good.
Bluejeans (64251) 2009-02-16 16:46
Acho que é o sonho de qualquer um de nós ter um barco destes :), muito bonito tem belos detalhes , bonitos tons de azul , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
zeca (19762) 2009-02-16 18:55
Very nice capture, Wilson! What a crazy place, where we can see so different boats in so different views. Nice quality.
PixelTerror (0) 2009-02-16 22:25
LOL busy harbour and an image that gets good highlights from the boats, the one moving looks a bit cheap...
Have a nice day JY
bakes888 (18499) 2009-02-16 23:31
Hi Wilson. All of a sudden I feel a little envious also. I’d be happy with any, even the wee one ;-). Nice catch. Excellent colours and clarity. Thanks for sharing.
guillaumejm (0) 2009-02-18 13:31
yes it look a nice one. Prefer sailing to yatching!.
dumbo (4541) 2009-02-25 13:28
We all have a dream and your dream is... a BIG dream:)
Anyway, this is a great photo with lots of beautiful (and expensive) boats and nice composition. The colors are also good.
All the best with your dream:)
emilbo (22616) 2009-02-25 13:42
Le bel éclairage et la qualité d'image mettent bien en valeur cette merveilleuse scène. Le voilier est superbe et je suis d'accord qu'il y a de quoi être envieux. Bonne composition et beau contraste de couleurs en les bateaux, le bleu de la mer et du ciel.
Tout mes compliments pour cette belle photo,
asajernigan (21427) 2009-02-26 2:41
Great shot of this active harbor. The varying angles and directions of the boats make for an interesting composition. The lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and DOF.
pablominto (53746) 2009-03-20 0:04
Playground of the rich & famous... and an odd oldtimer!
A nice ship from days gone by and I'd love to see the inside...
A well framed view with good details, conveying the marina atmosphere well!
jafadabret (56501) 2011-03-27 5:41
Je crois qu'on est assez nombreux dans ton cas mais on peut toujours rêver. J'aime ces bateaux sous la belle lumière et sur un fond d'azur.
ines8 (6112) 2011-05-17 14:14
A splendid dream and a very beautiful picture.
