Aqua is just one of the many bars and restaurants that grace the harbour front at Brighton Marina in East Sussex, Kent. The marina completed in 1979 is the largest in Europe with 1500 berths, and is a mixture of gated communities with private moorings as well as being a large leisure complex with shops, boutiques, bars, restaurants, hotel, bowling alley, cinema, health club and casino.
Regrettably I have found it necessary to add a discrete watermark to my images posted on TE as some have been hi-jacked and are now being used commercially on other websites, without my permission.
I realise it is impossible to stop people sharing images once posted on the internet and I have no real issue with that, it is flattering to know that they like them that much………but to make money from them is another matter and infringes copyright.
My anti-virus software dislikes the forums on TE! So please do not think I am rude if I do not answer any comments or questions raised…………

Such a beautiful shot!
How can so many people have opened it and not commented!
Love the use of the r/h boat to act as a guide and to set the scene. The eyes move straight to the bar, which is a lovely building, and then rebound to take in the exquisite reflections
You know, at first, I thought this was a shot from Greece!!
Have a lovely day,

looks like a great place to relax.
And I like your presentation of it-especially FG with the boats and water with so lovely reflections make really superb "opening" of the scene and lead our eyes towards the "Aqua" building.Excellently considered and composed image.Quality and colors are superb too!
I must confess at first I thought exactly like Beverley it was taken in Greece:)
Have a good day

Another attractive port scene. I like the colors and the deep calm atmosphere. Always attractive, well seen.

Brighton è nota per la sua rotonda in mezzo al mare e i suoi mille intrattenimenti, ma questa tua foto fa pensare a tutto fuorchè alla cittadina ingluse, per via dell'inquadratura inconsueta, ma pur sempre molto graziosa, che hai colto.
Stupefacente la nitidezza e molto belli i colori.
Un'altra ottima cattura.
Ciao e buona serata

My initial thought was Greece, it's a pleasant surprise to see this from the U.K. I'm sure it's probably a lot more common than someone like me would expect, so please pardon my lack of familiarity. :)
Two things stand out to me here, the saturated color in the water...I really like the fade to black for contrast as it progresses towards the forefront of the frame. Secondly, the small portion of the foreground boat lends a strong lead in, as if pointing to the harbor front restaurant. A vivid reflection overall, and a keen inclusion of the mast as it comes to a point near the bottom. Solid composition as always! Enjoy the day ahead. Take it easy.
Your note today had me laughing pretty good, "LSD" would change everything about that image! :) Psychedelic 60's!

Hello Brian - Including the bits of boat in the FG gives this lovely shot an immediacy which I like. I feel very much part of the scene here. An attractive shot with beautiful reflections and a pleasant atmosphere. Warm regards Rosemary

Well composed using the rule of thirds and smart choice of a vertical format. Wonderful reflections and I like the slight distortions and ripples. Looks similar to a shot Ourania uploaded recently. Fantastic warm cold colour contrasts between the blue and red. Tfs!

what a mirror image it is! Great work again. The hexogonal building at front. Beautiful boats are present with its reflections... Superb colour tone. Great shot. Tfs.
