Ballycastle Marina is used for small local fishing boats,pleasure craft and the local Rathlin Island ferry that carries visitors to Rathlin Island which lies 6 miles east of Ballycastle.

Bood choice of POV, in an askewed angle to the jetty, Arthur. That's gave extra depth in view out to the far side.
Fine blue tone, on sky and water, mingle with fine white in contrast.

Interesantan tekst o pristanistu ...
Dobra kompozicija i perspektiva, lepo pokazano pristaniste sa camcima i trenutak sa oblacima koji donose kisu.
Lepo pristaniste i camci.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela,srecno.
An interesting article on the pier ...
Good composition and perspective, nicely demonstrated harbor with boats and the moment the clouds that bring rain.
Nice dock and boats.
Nice afternoon and all the best in the new week that started, good luck.

I love the long expansive view out over the water and to the cliffs beyond, truly a great sense of depth. And as I look at the marina, I do what I always do when I see these places, and seek out which boat I would choose if I had the choice. I think I'd go for the one with the black hood, it looks like a watery sports car! A beautiful sky tops this off, and the blue tone of the water is really cool.
All the best

I like how you anchored the strong perspective, leading to the other side with the pier, in the foreground. You've enhanced the depth of this lovely view in an effective way. There's great clarity and the boats are described with fine precision that makes them attractive and interesting. I wonder if a tighter crop, eliminating the free space on the right side, would make the view of the marina even more interesting. The glowing sky wasn't a convenient backdrop but you handled it well. There's a silvely tint on the colours that gives the view a consistent a special character. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

This is a good documentary photo showing the Marina and the distant cliff in a very pleasant manner. TFS.

A splendid composition with this beautiful harbor well protected against storms, pretty picture of all the boats moored in the harbor, the sky was not ideal, but the image is of sufficient clarity and beautiful colors.
Very good sharpness and adequate brightness.
Enjoy a good evening.

I could not help but notice the number of places prefixed by 'Bally' when I was in Ireland. According to the Internet it means 'pass' or 'passage', unless, of course, you know better.
I do like the way you have composed the shot with the 'T' shape of the mooring berths. It gives a strong f/g triangle and then a diagonal lead into the safe harbour. The yachts, moored at right angles, produce an interesting pattern, with a strong emphasis on blue.
Not oversharpened and with a good sense of depth.
My warm regards,

Bon cadrage de la jetée, la lumière sur ce petit port de plaisance et un beau contraste du blanc et du bleu
