A knot is a method of fastening or securing linear material such as rope by tying or interweaving. It may consist of a length of one or several segments of rope, string, webbing, twine, strap, or even chain interwoven such that the line can bind to itself or to some other object—the "load". Knots have been the subject of interest for their ancient origins, their common uses, and the area of mathematics known as knot theory.

Great composition. Whilst the knot is a focal point the most powerful thing about this image for me is the way that it feels like a compressed perspective and those shapes of contrasting colour revealing another visual dimension very subtly. Artistic and creative.

A well composed image with a touch of graphism about it. I like the angles formed by the ropes and the rich red background. Excellent rendering of the tones and textures.

A very catchy and appealing picture with fine details. This is a kind of composition I appreciate very much.

An original minimalist composition, both red and white dominant colors give great strength to the composition, the ship's mooring rope gives a nice touch of graphics and enhances fine textures.
Very good management of the brightness, color and sharpness.
Have a good weekend.

3 colours for an attractive picture!
Even i knots sometimes look quiet "rough",they are anyway the fact of professionals fishermen who really know what they do!
In high seas,the difference between a wrong and a right knot may cost lives...

Hello Daniel ,
There are a lot of possibilities of subjects in the ports . Not easy to choose the good one . Here , you've done very well , with the knot as the focal point , and a white and red scenery . The framing works well , too .

a creative and really compelling composition. Love the elements here and the two tones colours that just make the knot stand out so effectively. Wonderful!
Have a great weekend - Brian.

Ce rouge et ce blanc attirent le regard qui va ensuite se concentrer sur ces cordages. Une belle et intéressante composition.

Hi dear Daniel
Another very artistic photo. The tight crops works so well and I like the rich colours and textures (particularly of the rope) alot. The light is wonderful too.

Hello Daniel. A simple knot. Yet the photograph has artistic quality. Colors, lines, shapes, etc. are a good match. Overall, a good shot with strong colors. Best regards, Wolfgang.

Bien vu la réalisation avec les cordages, le cadrage serré et le contraste que donne le rouge et le blanc, excellent
abmdsudi (26339) 2012-10-23 2:46
Good subject for close up work, with the contrasting colors and this also makes an excellent abstract - graphism theme. The fiery red is a real stunner. Opportunity well taken. Fine image, TFS.
