Yalta, Crimea peninsula. It is the location of the conference of Stalin, Churchill and Rosevelt in 1945. Yalta is primarily a health and holiday resort. It is not glamorous as expected. Much has even modern. I see Mac Donald. Mothers with the remote control electric cars for their children. In the ports are the yachts of the rich. But even here (as elsewhere in the country), a Lenin statue stands in a central location.
I photographed the lighthouse with the woman in a yellow bikini.

Technically perfect again. Great composition and colour. I like the foreground figures which balance perfectly with the lighthouse. The photo emanates a tranquil and relaxes atmosphere.

merci pour cette petite évasion maritime et estivale, agréable quand on habite loin de la mer et qu'il pleut. Une photo qui me met de bonne humeur.

Hi Wolfgang.Not sure what you mean by less sophisticated. Does it mean a lack of snobs? Perfect POV incorporating vibrant colours, including the top worn by the lady on the left.I wonder if the rich also throw their rubbish overboard as I see bits of this and that floating in the water. Wonderful light and sharpness. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Hello Wolfgang - The FG detail with the two women and the sunshade is lovely, the yellows and vivid blue blouse add a real summery feel to the shot. A stunningly simple composition but really very good. Warm regards Rosemary

I made a photo from almost the same place. You. like men, were interested in the girl in bikini, for me the chess was more interesting.
Fine scene from yalta, excellent composition in nice colours.

This is a real good composition. The deep blue water is well contrasted against the yellow of the bik and umbrella. To add, the tall white watchtower contrast with the sky and water both.TFS.
snunney (86574) 2011-07-22 3:54
Very well composed offering this interesting juxtaposition between the couple with their yellow parasol and the lighthouse. The parasol in fact makes a lovely splash of warm colour against the cool blue tones of sea and sky.

Another nice composition from you. I like the yellow bikin girl under the yellow umbrella. Right across is the nice light house. Deep blue water gives a peaceful atmosphere. Well composed with sharpness.

Je sais pas ce qui attire le plus le regard dans ce beau cadrage vertical. J'ai toujour aimé le jaune et les phares.Je sais, c'est le parasoleil.
gunbud (34066) 2011-07-22 8:08
Charming summer scene with the tow ladies enjoy a bit of warm sun and a splendid view of the old lighthouse.
The vertical presentation works very well and creates excellent depth.
The colors are very clear and the details very sharp.

Your photos have the power to quickly draw my attention among all the thumbnails. It must be the clear colours, the straightforward and uncomplicated compositions. This one has a strong foreground of bright colours and a long view across the water up to the white lighthouse. A fine glimpse of life in a southern climate on a beautiful day.

Very well composed.The parasol in fact makes a lovely splash of warm colour against the cool blue tones of sea and sky.
bema (26361) 2011-07-23 13:18
wie viele deiner Aufnahmen besticht diese hier aus einer Kombination von tägluichem menschlichen Leben und der Faszination aus Natur und Bauwerken...
tolle Farben, klasse Photo..
Cricri (108847) 2011-07-24 11:46
Une composition bien équilibrer entre les personnes et le phare, une scéne de plaisir et de bon temps, j'aime le mariage du jaune avec le bleu,
sacavem (18614) 2011-07-24 15:31
I like your POV.Good work to capture this image.
Excellent composition, very nice colours, and sharpness.
macjake (58014) 2011-07-25 4:38
you could have easily left the scene alone with the sunbather and the umbrella, but including the lighthouse really elongates the scene and provides a secondary focal point. Personally, i think its better this way, as its stretches the photo and moves our eyes.
lilito (3472) 2011-07-26 2:52
Tout endroit est bon pour recevoir un peu les bienfaits du soleil! ;D
Ninello52 (7572) 2011-07-26 13:09
Very interesting image! Wonderful composition with the horizon and the lighthouse and the top pair of beautiful ladies in baso! Beautiful colors (including pandant beautiful umbrella and a bathing suit)! Great inspiration! Congratulations!
Best Regards, Nino.

This is a fine shot of this nautical scene. The people in the foreground provide excellent balance for the lighthouse in the distance. The vertical format works perfectly here. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness.
bergese (6699) 2011-07-29 3:51
Le soleil brille et cette personne semble bien en profiter.J'aime bien les positions des personnages et le jaune du parasol assorti au maillot.Bien vu.
Best regards Isabelle
mkamionka (31317) 2011-07-30 1:54
very interesting and so funny scene. I like the combination of the lighthouse which alone would be not that interesting together with the people in the foreground who add so much life and interest and also color here. The yellow goes so well with the blue and I believe they are even Ukrainian national colors.
Very nice capture,
Juntas (7960) 2011-08-11 3:06
Hi Wolfgang. Very nice scene. I like your composition with the people on the foreground giving a strong sense of depth. Colors are nice specially the yellows that are very eyecatching. Good format, well done.
Have a nice day.
