Dear TE Members this one is my 200th post from my Country Portugal and not my really 200th post at TE because I posted some of other countries. For this moment I choose a past one taken in the first days of May last year that I like very much that was taken at my birthtown at Espinho near 20Km South of Oporto and in a special Sea LOW TIDE cycle of Year.
I will post more Two in WS's for celebrate this nice moment and event.
In my first WS Info I post a second picture taken some moments after this one that is nice but not to post as primary and in the second a picture that I take today day post with my Evolt-500 near this place and taken to a south view with the fisherman and the boats. THIS one is a preview for a future one to post here on a near approach similar perspective and I hope you like. So, tell me something about this WS post about traditional old ways of fishing.
YOU can see the place I shot in the Google Map with some preference locals where I take pictures and in this specific case is referenced as BAIA Beach at center and the FISHERMAN Beach with also a Green Camera Icon at South in my second WS that you can see here: Link OR also in the Map View Info in your left of this Page TE reference.
You can see a previous posts from near this place and that was taken 2Km South that was really my 200th post at TE here: Link
Important INFORMATION Note: This shot was taken near one half hour Sunset with low sunrays near my frontal view.
COMPLEMENTARY Notes: I give a smell touch of light and contrast. Not Cropped and other information:
ISO=64 Focal Lenght=364mm and no Filters
Thanks for sharing and I hope you enjoy my feeling and this approach heart view scenery moment for a dedicated post to my second century of Portuguese nature posts.
The Best to you All and TFS.

This time we have a nice interesting scene in the foreground.
I think theese rocks are plenty of mussels.
I cook them with oignons garlake and one cup of white dry wine inside.

Olà Fernando: I do like this photo, the sense of calm, the people sharing the same space but at the same time all of them attending their bussiness and thoughts. I do like also because reflect the mood of the late afternoon moments at the beaches, always kind of specials. Take care.

Parece que tive a honra de ser o primeiro a comentar esta sua foto, que celebra um marco importante na sua carreira. 200 fotos sobre as belezas do seu país é de facto um acontecimento importante e que merece ser comemorado. Desde já os meus sinceros parabéns por isso. Relativamente à foto, acho que ela é, de facto, especial. É uma cena do quotidiano onde está registada de forma notável a componente lúdica do mar a outra visão, não menos importante, de quem faz dele uma das formas de vida. A composição é excelente, muito bem cuidada como sempre, e as cores e formas quase fazem sentir o cheiro da maresia... Belíssima escolha como forma de comemorar o seu extenso trabalho na arte de divulgar o que é nosso. Parabéns, um abraço amigo e votos de um óptimo fim de semana!

Esta imagem lembra-me na altura em que eu adorava apanhar o marisco nas rochas, já foi há uns aninhos mas é sempre bom recordar.
Gostei do momento em que foi captado, com o miudo e a prancha. Muito Bom.

Great Daily life shot.
Nice composition and atmosphere is great.
I like the different activities of the people in it.
aznegrao (10316) 2006-04-06 16:14
Interesante tiro com as pessoas a se movimentar na praia criando uma atmosfera dinamica.
Um grande abraço amigo!!

A very good composition with the sucesssive centers of interests. I think the rocks in the foreground are perhaps a little dark but the wet sand and the sea are very nice. You can almost see the movement of the waves.
All the best,
Emile (20350) 2006-04-06 17:20
This is a very interesting picture, the foreground presents a great atmosphere with people looking for mussels ??. The background with the surfer and the sea produces a nice contrast. Very good lighting and composition. Congratulation for your 200th picture of Portugal posted in TE. You do have an amazing country, hope we will see more pictures from your beautiful Portugal.
Very well done.

200 th wwith a "peche à pied".. Good choice Fernando this is life for the people living at the seaside.
I like the subject done with differenet activities at different "stages".
Good light too;
A nice one
ahmetgedikli (25482) 2006-04-06 18:14
Great composition and capture. Beautiful sunlight, waves and colors. Thanks for sharing.
singuanti (15250) 2006-04-06 22:10
Hi Fernando. Congrats on posting #200 from Portugal! For me this is about all of the different activities taking place in front of us. It's great the way the backlight is working its way through the shot. Excellent shot Fernando!
ChrisJ (100136) 2006-04-07 4:14
Olà Fernando & congratulations on your 200th!
A superb coastal scene, with excellent colour, lighting, & sharpness. Felicitations!
plimrn (21344) 2006-04-07 4:30
I think that water is cold!! That guy with the body board looks like he's freezing. In both of your Olympus posts, the activity of the people provides great interest but your new camera is just lovely. The clouds are perfect; no noise, no overexposure. the colors throughout are very natural, the sand is sandy the grass is green and the sky a very natural blue. The detail is also very good throughout. Good choice in cameras.
Gerrit (49060) 2006-04-07 4:39
Congratulations and a fine picture it is ful of actiovity. Giood composition and colours.
thanks and regards, gerrit

Bom dia Fernando,
Obrigado pelas suas palavras no meu último post. Já estava a vir para aqui, quando reparei que chegou primeiro...
Parabéns pela sua 200ª foto de Portugal. Eu lá vou fazendo um esforço para postar mais de Portugal, mas tenho tantas do resto do mundo...
Excelentes três imagens da sua cidade natal. Não sei qual delas gosto mais. Gosto do ambiente criado pelas várias actividades e diferentes personagens, da luminosidade e do contraste com as rochas escuras, pontilhadas por pontos brancos de luminosidade. No 1º ws, gosto da diagonal criada pelas 3 pessoas e no 2º ws, gosto do cenário dos barcose pescadores enquadrado pelo magnífico céu (neatimage?).
Parabéns por tudo e muito obrigado pela partilha!
Um excelente fim de semana para si,

Bonjour mon ami Fernando,
Félicitations pour votre 200ème publication (cela dit, vous êtes modeste, car avec toutes les photos présentées en atelier, il faudrait prévoir un coefficient multiplicateur).
J'aime beaucoup cette prise de vue qui présente différents aspects d'une journée : les pêcheurs, le véliplanchiste, le penseur de Rodin, la mer qui roule ses vagues sans fatigue.
Un réel plaisir à regarder et très bon cadrage.
P.S. : Bravo, pour la seconde photo présentée en atelier !
markstaples (15670) 2006-04-07 5:27
A very nice pic with much busy activity. What strikes me is the feeling of concentration coming from all the people in the picture. I like the lines and diagonals of the waves too. Nice work Fernando!!
efigesta (12188) 2006-04-07 5:30
mais uma foto da nossa bela parai em Espinho e tanta coisa para ver num espaço tão pequeno, cores fabulosas e como alguem disse me faz lembrar eu em miudo atras das "lapas" e das estrelas do mar

nwoehnl (122) 2006-04-07 8:56
Congrats on your 200th Portuguese photo, Fernando. A quite interesting beach scene with a good half-and-half division between water and shoreside rocks, and fun to see how everybody seems to be engaged in a different kind of activity. Greetings from Kyoto.
Giorgio (11279) 2006-04-07 9:10
- Well considering this beach with the surfer who gives a sporting energy to the image and these pick-ups of shells for the quiet side, the intrinsic quality of the photograph, colors, light, POV are in addition excellent, cheers!
Kenny10pin (19301) 2006-04-07 10:05
Great daily life shot, I like the people in the shot, very good goings on, well done
josepmarin (57831) 2006-04-07 11:17
Felicidades por tu 200ª post en TE.
Buena imagen de los mariscadores y de su duro trabajo, en contraste con unos chicos que están divirtiéndose con el surf.
Teniendo en cuenta las condiciones de luz, y la dificultad de conseguir una buena exposición, has conseguido una muy buena foto, con una gran definición y detalles, y unos colores bonitos y suaves.
El mar está también muy hermoso.
syd1946 (18663) 2006-04-07 11:43
Congratulations for your 200th post for Portugal!Very interesting and nice daily life scene you capture here.In the right time you
catched the moment.The detail is clear and the
colors so nice and strong.Five poeple looking
and doing something different!
Have a nice weekend,
anavazao (5592) 2006-04-07 11:48
PARABÉNS.... por várias razões pela qualidade da tua galeria, pelas tuas dicas etc! Continua:)
Uma foto muito interessante gostei da luz, cores, POV...
Fixfocus (9385) 2006-04-07 13:03
A nice one to clebrate the 200th,the contrast between the darker foreground and the bright background is superb.Good to have the people here too with so many different activties.
TeresaT (10806) 2006-04-07 14:21
Antes de mais parabéns pelas 200 belissimas imagens que colocou no TE...e que prestigiam bastante a beleza do nosso país.
Agora realtivamente à foto...como não poderia deixar de ser está muito bem concebida...uma composição interessante com vários motivos de interesse (o rapaz com a prancha...as pessoas a apanharem marisco nas rochas e claro...o mar como plano de fundo).
Continue a brindar-nos com esta lindas imagens.
bertolucci (13358) 2006-04-07 15:03
Ola Fernando, I really like the way you captured the joy the beach brings people - searching for small clams, seaboarding or just contemplating on a stone with the feet in the water. Well composed with great clarity. Very good work & very good eye!
And of course congrats with your 200th post from Portugal.
Best regards and have a nice weekend!
weswang (18223) 2006-04-07 17:41
Hi Fernando, Thank you for your photos to bring us to know your beautiful country better. I have been enjoying the beautiful Portugal coastal line through your lens.
This is another well taken picture to show the beach, the rocks, and people enjoying the activity on the beach. Good snap shot of the enjoyable daily life on the beach.
feather (51130) 2006-04-08 5:52
There is lots of detail here to catch our eye, and not one of the people have noticed you. Well composed with the rocks set diagonally as well as the diagonals of teh waves in opposition to the strip of sand.
Congratulations on 200 Portugal photos.
Jribeirosantos (1916) 2006-04-08 10:27
Hoje duplamente.. pela foto e pelo 200 foto:)
Infelizmente os :) estão em saldo e esgotaram-se rapidamente .. mas amanha voltarei para repor a justiça :) ( já cá estão) :)
jafadabret (56501) 2006-04-08 11:23
Félicitations pour ta 200ème, Fernando !
Elle est magnifique on voit tous ces gens occupés à des activités diverses en bord de mer. Le sufer s'adonne à son sport et les autres personnes ont chacune leur activité propre.
Belle lumière, c'est une réussite.
Jeppe (18654) 2006-04-08 14:04
Congratulation with your post #200 from the beautiful Portugal - too bad I never visit your country.
This gives a fine view of the time to come - summer and warm weather.
elihesamian (26149) 2006-04-08 16:49
glad to see your 200th post from/about your beautiful country,with a nice elements as the sea and rocks and the poeple,too,great POV you had and very well composed,excellents sharpness an dnicely done,
What an appealing sunlight!
cam (9041) 2006-04-08 20:16
Lots of animation in this seaside composition.
It is fun to look at the persons going about their different activities.
A good choice,this daily life,for your 200th
huynt (5079) 2006-04-09 2:33
Hi Congratulation. I like this shot with nice beach. What are tey doing in this beach?
john_c (24662) 2006-04-09 11:39
A well composed and interesting scene. It is really true that there are five different people here, all doing different things and very much in their own separate worlds. Good colour and contrast. I also like the dual image here - the boy with the surfboard and the tempestuous sea, balanced by the quieter shore scene that is more contemplative. Congratulations on this shot, Fernando. All the best.
pitai (3985) 2006-04-09 19:14
Hello Fernando, five persons and five different activities. lol. I like the individuality of all the persons in this shot. Very rich textures. The colors are a bit overexposed, though. Well done, Gabriel
capthaddock (28790) 2006-04-10 9:57
Hi Fernando - very sharp and clear beach scenery, nice moment of daily life, under a beautiful light, and congratulations on 200 portuguese photos.
ngola (8) 2006-04-10 15:55
To me this image contains the typical human action in Espinho's beach. Fernando had the feeling to synthecise all, in a well done enquadrement.
aloyho (6798) 2006-04-10 22:45
A lovely scene of beach activities with good contrast between the rocks and the waves. I find the semi circular arrangement of the figures interesting as it harmonized with the lines of the waves and the clarity suggest a lively day. Well done!! Have a good day ahead.
DLM (6479) 2006-04-11 12:22
Hi fernando,great 200th,A very nice composition of this delightful scene,well captured.TFS
Vato_Law (12720) 2006-04-16 6:23
hoje com os O-O, já consigo ver que esta foto é de Espinho :). Interesante abordagem esta, deiza-nos ver o que podemos fazer na praia para alem de apanhar sol. Bom enquadramento, luminosdade e detalhes.
