Hello best TE friends, I was with my dance friends in England, but I don't know not good where this picture is taken.
We stopping for to drink a cup of coffee, I took different picture, but when I back to home than I was forget the name of the city, but I think Falmouth.
Help is very welcome.
I found on the official site from Falmouth this note.
Falmouth is famous for its harbour. Together with Carrick Roads, it forms the third deepest natural harbour in the world, and the deepest in Western Europe. It is also famous for being the start or finish point of various round-the-world record-breaking voyages, such as those of Sir Francis Chichester and Dame Ellen MacArthur.
Thank you very much.

Beautifull shot from the harbour, with the lady watching the cool waters,the dramatic clouds and the sails..
The tones are excellent..
All the best, dear friend.
cherryripe (21033) 2008-03-14 12:05
Excellent scene with the lady making this shot so dynamic the way she's looking out onto the water. I also like your strong saturation of the little boats and heavy contrast. The sharpness is also very good and there is lots of depth.
lousat (98367) 2008-03-14 12:09
Hi Johm,what a wonderfull landscape,i wish to sitting me too to observe..eheheh..great colours and fantastics clouds,very very great as your style,thanks for share,Luciano
ben4321 (9875) 2008-03-14 12:12
Classic composition John - the old lady looking out over the harbour really draws the eye into the scene. I'd have preferred it with her on the left side of the bench, but not much you could do about that.
Setting some exposure compensation (-0.3 or so) would have helped you reduce the slight over-exposure in the white areas of the scene, but in terms of the composition the shot is first-rate. The cloudy sky is the icing on the cake - typical British seaside weather.
Emile (20352) 2008-03-14 12:24
Wonderful composition with the lady watching this beautiful view of the city and harbor, very good depth and perspective, nice colors and sharpness. Good POV. Well done.
Best regards and wish you a good weekend.
jackart (6702) 2008-03-14 12:53
It's weekend, so thank You for this relaxing shot! Great sharpness and colors, very good framing, anyway I agree with ben4321 - blouse of the lady is slightly overexposed
Have a nice weekend
evanrizo (456) 2008-03-14 12:54
Hi John, except that is very good technical photo, I like very much the theatrical impression it comes from the lonely people sitting on the bench.
Have a nice weekend.
Didi (60590) 2008-03-14 12:54
Lors de mon séjour dans ce port en 1985 je n'ai pas pris de photos car le temps était couvert.
Intéressant point de vue sur le port avec cette dame au style très British :)
Royaldevon (43965) 2008-03-14 13:11
I like your pov very much. It makes me feel to be sharing the view with the lady! There are plenty of details to observe!
The shot is very sharp and has a good dof. The reflections, the colour tones and the dramatic sky give lots of extra interest to the shot.
jwmunro (286) 2008-03-14 13:55
Hello John -
A very nice and peaceful image. I think have the lady in the image really makes it work. She also helps focus our attention into the scene. All of the technicals details are right where they belong. IMO, the clouds are the star of this image. Well done!
Thank you for sharing.
UnTrained (0) 2008-03-14 14:55
a very pleseant view on the water with the lady sitting on a bench, the slope of the city and those marvelous clouds. Must be a good place for a rest where the the lady is. Great light and clarity.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf
vero07 (1781) 2008-03-14 15:05
What a privilege to have a seat here! amazing and relaxing view. And of course great shot, with nice light and colours. Lovely clouds.
Thanks for the useful information!
JPlumb (3159) 2008-03-14 16:54
Hi John, I've said it before, but it is worth saying again. I like how you can take a simple scene and make it look very good. This is a simple scene of a lady looking out over the water. With your composition set the way it is we end up looking with the ladies eyes out over the scene. There are three points of interest in this shot which set up a triangular effect. We look from the lady out to the boats and then up to the city. You have it all in good sharp detail with great colour, and all beautifully blanketed by that blue sky with clouds.
ChrisJ (119013) 2008-03-14 19:23
I like the dramatic sky. A good capture of a quiet moment of solitude, with the lone woman seated on the bench, gathering her thoughts. Good sharpness, & tfs!
carper (96) 2008-03-14 23:15
zeer fraai en orginele view hier John.
heel mooi genomen, de balans is goed mooie kwaliteit, zeer fraai werk.
berek (50508) 2008-03-14 23:48
what a wonderful clouds. you caught very good perspective with this. I like lonely waiting women composition. Have a nice weekend.
Stepan (27210) 2008-03-15 0:24
I'm here, with that lady, enjoying the view... Well composed to share that place, which seems to be lovely with all that colored boats.
gracious (20025) 2008-03-15 1:54
Very beautiful view well captured with the best pov here!
excellent exposure and focus in perfect sharpness, vivid colour and details also included a beautiful cloud formation!
snunney (107513) 2008-03-15 1:59
A very nice composition of this lady sitting peacefully on a bench and contemplating the beautiful view in front of her. The composition has good balance with all the elements nicely placed in the frame. Very good light, colours and clarity.
maltese (22907) 2008-03-15 4:02
Une bonne composition avec cette personne qui admire ce port, une belle gestion des paramètres pour avoir un maximum de netteté sur toute la photo.
une très belle réalisation sous cette bonne lumière.
Jean-Luc (5488) 2008-03-15 4:05
Cette lady, comme nous, profite d'un magnifique POV sur ce petit port.
Les couleurs sont très douces sous ce ciel nuageux.
La composition et la netteté sont excellents.
yedirenk (11244) 2008-03-15 4:20
Great shot,like a dream.excellent light and superb sharpness.very good POV.Amazing scene and perfect frame.TFS.
Have a nice weekend.
lucasgalodoido (23651) 2008-03-15 4:22
interessante essa solitária mulher contemplando a vista da baía, uma imagem muito atrativa essa, gostei.
Parabéns e Abraço!
pierrefonds (71745) 2008-03-15 4:33
Your note is giving a lot of information. The point of view is giving depth to the photo which is well framed. The person on the banch has an excellent view of the harbour and of the city. The light brings out the colors. A place to relax and enjoy the day. Have a good weekend.
GilbertB (12258) 2008-03-15 6:26
Salut John, belle vue de ce port , la personne sur le banc doit rèver à de grands voyages sur les océans.
Tue (43938) 2008-03-15 8:19
Goed te begrijpen dat deze dame op dat bankje is gaan zitten, het uitzicht op het stadje en zijn haventje is prachtig. Zeker op deze dag met zo'n fijn licht. Uitstekende compositie ook bovendien. Een heel mooi gezicht, bedankt!
Prettig weekend verder!
JCG (35129) 2008-03-15 10:47
What a luminosity in the image!!! It is very pleasant and I see that this woman appreciates too. Very pretty panorama on this harbour. I like much the balance of the image with this bench in the foreground. This sky with these clouds of good weather gives a good relief in the photograph. Pretty work John, cheer.
With all my friendships and a very good WE,
pasternak (15185) 2008-03-15 11:20
Very well composed with this woman sitting on a bench and enjoying such a deep and luminous view, the low clouds match well the whites of the railings and the houses...
delkoo (68) 2008-03-15 13:59
nice view of this little harbour, The woman in particular adds so much to this scene.
gilou530 (34) 2008-03-15 14:07
une vue pleine de tendresse et de simplicité avec une bonne lumiére, couleurs naturelles, beau travail
jusninasirun (17527) 2008-03-15 21:36
Hello John. I kept seeing first class top quality images on my every visit to your gallery. The lady on the bench is captured in perfection. The view is in pristine sharpness in brilliant perspective. The puffy white clouds add icing to this already wonderful composition. Well done and best regards. Jusni
dip (23892) 2008-03-16 2:46
good capture of the scene with excellent lighting and perspective,nice colors and amazing sky too!
markstaples (15670) 2008-03-16 4:57
I'm intrigued by the comment claiming that there is slight overexposure on the whites of this shot. Rest assured that I can see no overexposure at all. The exposure has in fact been managed to perfection. The composition is well seen. A beautiful piece of photography.
Budapestman (82620) 2008-03-16 10:18
Peaceful and calm atmosphere with picturesque details, the composition is very attractive and spectacular. Fascinating view, indeed. Very well done! Have a nice evening
Graal (103038) 2008-03-16 10:55
beautiful place and view. I like the light and colours. Fine composition with the bench on FG. Good work.
Jeppe (18654) 2008-03-16 12:16
You captured a photo with an 50 year old atmosphere - I like the tourist giving us the feeling of being there - the lines of clouds and ships completes the photos.
josepmarin (58359) 2008-03-16 13:12
Good scene in which the lady sat in the bench contemplating the landscape inspires us many tranquility.
And the landscape is very beautiful, you have worked very well the light and have obtained a great quality of image and of colors.
Excellent work, as usual.
stego (24132) 2008-03-16 14:24
As usual in your posts, a beautiful place masterfully photographed. The compo is perfect and gorgeous, I almost feel tempted to believe that you ordered the boats to be aligned that way so they could combine so well with the bench on the FG. The clouds, the light, the colours, the sharpness, are all great also. I like the presence of the lady, it aids us imagining be seated beside her enjoying the view.
bracasha75 (24591) 2008-03-16 14:59
A place with view
Excellent point for rest and join in beautiful area...
danyy (0) 2008-03-16 15:51
c'est bien entendu le ciel qui fait la vedette à mes yeux, mais quand je les baisse, je découvre une toute belle ville avec un plan d'eau très plaisancier.
Bravi pour la qualité technique de la photo.
John_F_Kennedy (43763) 2008-03-17 0:48
I like this view, The waterfront is great. Great capture, well done.
sacavem (18620) 2008-03-17 4:40
Bela composição com a senhora a olhar o bonito porto e cidade,certamente num momento de pausa e a recordar .Profundidade e perspective muito bom, cores agradáveis e agudeza.
Kenny10pin (19301) 2008-03-17 6:28
how nice with the human touch here, I like it very very very much
gildasjan (43824) 2008-03-17 10:07
Comme nous cette dame regarde ce joli spectacle offert par ce paysage maritime.Des nuances de couleurs très agréables.
UlfE (14641) 2008-03-17 11:11
The view of the harbour is really beautiful. I love the inclusion of the lady in the bench. It makes it very vivid and also original. I guess thousands of look-a-like photos have been taken from a position just behind the fence. Excellent photo job!
gary91 (15348) 2008-03-17 12:34
It is a very nice composition and the woman on the bench is really perfectly placed. The strong white lines of the barriere contrast a lot with this nice city with all its details in the background. The sky is really great, typical of what it can be quite often in England, when it doesn't rain too much ;-)
Have a nice evening.
Best regards, Christian
Henryk_Bilor (20801) 2008-03-17 13:34
Nice view of this view ;). Lovely composition with the woman on the bench. Beautiful light and cloudy sky.
amaryllis (37039) 2008-03-17 14:34
belle photo de ce port avec la ville en arrière plan et cette femme assise sur le banc qui regarde vers le port
belles couleurs et netteté
saylan-cb (12738) 2008-03-18 4:25
Superb image!Great colours with nice light and sharpness,POV,well done.
rigoletto (34279) 2008-03-18 4:32
Romantic or rock'n roll?
Very nice place to visit for sure. With the human element in the front, the harbour looks very nice. Excellent clarity and wonderful puffy clouds...
Gerrit (52283) 2008-03-18 5:25
een mooi zicght op deze prachtige haven. De lijnen van de bootjes zijn geweldig en de compositie is optimaal. U had ook het weer mee met zo'n mooie lucht en de zonneschijn.
lukas (2067) 2008-03-18 8:32
De foto doet me denken aan mijn foto van Antwerpen. Persoon op de bank nodigt uit om mee het mooie landschap te bewonderen.
Een wat klassieke truc mar toch een die werkt.
Je hebt er wel een prachtige lucht bij!
Veel groeten uit Halle.
jemaflor (103719) 2008-03-18 10:38
A good place to see this plaesant view, good composition and light, well taken.
leo61 (0) 2008-03-18 12:26
Even without this woman this would have been a good composition ,but with her it`s a great one.Great depth with this row of boats and the diagonla of the shore with the city.Sharpness is perfect here and I like the low clouds.
gneufeld (15890) 2008-03-18 18:06
What a great spot to take a break from the business of the day. Very well composed with excellent pov. I like the very well saturated and natural colors and details. Great shot and TFS. Gerald
mvdisco (17796) 2008-03-18 21:00
A well composed picture and beautiful view of the place of Falmouth, great naturel colors and détails, Excellent POV. very well done.
AiresSantos (56155) 2008-03-19 4:11
A little bit fifferent of your usual pictures but also very nice.
I like your POV, The woman seated in the sit and the lovely sky
mikeo (12129) 2008-03-19 5:24
Is the lady sitting at the front of water or a big painting:)?
Its absolutely superb! Great colours, amazing sharpness...
Well chosen POV.
pastadog (13111) 2008-03-20 2:33
I like this compo, John, with the lady as main subject, in attractive watching pose... well exposed shot - sharp and deep... nice busy sky too... well done, Daniel
Paolo (41230) 2008-03-20 4:11
Hi John, excellent one, a great composition, with th elady well placed on the pictrue and that wonderful view on the bay and on Falmouth.
excellent light and colours too.
wolf38 (31296) 2008-03-25 0:13
Hello John. A beautiful scene. Water, boats, sunshine. Peace and contemplative. Worth seeing and photographically outstanding realizes. Best regards, Wolfgang.
Bluejeans (64251) 2008-03-25 6:18
Ola John ,
Bonita foto desta cidade pitoresca a beira mar tem um belo porto, a senhora sentada na cadeira em primeiro plano ficou fantástica , boa profundidade de foto , parabéns!!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
giorgimer (34965) 2008-04-01 5:06
great place to have a rest, excellent view, great details and beautiful sky.
gunbud (34066) 2008-04-05 20:07
This lovely lady is enjoying a spectular view full of vibrant colors and wonderful depth. The pale blue sky with its low clouds looks wonderful above the traditional English homes in this charming village. Falmouth is the name of several small villages along the cost of New England in the US.
macondo (19806) 2008-04-16 5:39
I just viewed your recent shots, and found this delightful scene from England. Yes, there's a little over-exposure of the white rails and the lady's blouse, but that is always difficult when pure white. I like the position of the lady on the seat - it looks like she is waiting for another person to come. Very sharp capture of the buildings and yachts, and a great sky. Very pleasing seaside picture.
MLINES (12516) 2008-04-23 6:35
Hi John, A well arranged and clear composition. The placement of the lady and the seat is ideal. TFS. Murray.
jmdias (69298) 2008-04-30 7:27
I liked this pov and the place too. The light is nice and the compo too. I think if you had put it in B&W it could be more dramatic. Anyway it is a nice work
Amaz (11475) 2009-04-28 13:47
Interesting composition with this lady in the middle, a port, harour, town, sky...all very good integred!!!
Sorry for ask you ; where is you number 901????
Schnappilic (9692) 2011-02-02 11:17
A romantic composition with best sharpness. This lady seems to look a picture. Congratulation!
serp2000 (45970) 2011-04-23 12:20
Excellent snapshot! Good composition and fine background! This camera has more possibilities, no doubt. (before I looked your photos from Luxembourg)
ikeharel (79263) 2012-04-01 5:35
Sitting and watching the fabulous day in a harbour area, made this a wonderful subject to photo, John.
Good light and contrast, depth and clearity on image.
Boats parking in rows - so one need a boat to get to his boat...
Have a nice sunday afternoon.

Hello John, what a view!!!
The picture is very panoramic with great color and an amazing sharpness that makes you almost touch the scenery!Thanks for sharing this unknown but very lovely place!
jcpix (13950) 2013-02-22 18:31
I've always had kind of a soft spot for images with benches, they just seem to set the scene to be so very welcoming...and this one does just that! I would love to sit back and spend some quality time doing absolutely nothing but enjoy the view and listen to the sounds around me. This arrangement offers a wonderful sentiment to the surroundings and a desire to be there in person. I really like the cloud formations captured here, an imagination could run wild. Nice exposure helps set the atmosphere. Lovely photo. Best Regards.
Robert1969 (7160) 2013-02-23 3:20
Goede dag John,
Een mooie "meekijk" foto, m.a.w. alsof ik naast je
staat. De dame op de bank versterkt het effect, zij
kijkt over de gehele haven. De lagen in de foto,
maar ook de lijnenspellen (zoals de rijen bootjes)
versterken de diepte.
Samengevat: een goede standpunt ingenomen en alles
Vriendelijke groeten en een fijn weekend,
dale54 (9146) 2014-03-17 9:14
john hello..i like this shot..well thought out and taken.superb composition! tfs. have a great day! dale
omid266 (6750) 2014-06-09 21:14
another spectacular shot from England,
excellent POV, fine details,
with woman watching and enjoying beautiful view,
All the BEST and Thanks!
abmdsudi (58302) 2014-10-23 5:47
This looks so fresh and what an image of a stunning harbour view, the low warm summer light and the brilliance of the boats and the backdrop created nice echoes which is visually exciting under the dramatic clouds. A joy to behold indeed in such luminosity and richness of colour and I feel inclusion of the admirer adds extra life and sense of depth to this lovely capture. Congrats, tfs
aliabazari (16304) 2014-11-12 20:42
Hoi lieve John
Shot van een mooie vrouw die op het strand. Samenstelling is goed gedaan. Uitzettingen is zeer goed.
ourania (51103) 2015-05-16 9:25
a very interesting and enjoyable view, it should be hard to leave this privileged viewpoint or stop exploring the view through the lens of your camera. I like very much how the perspective leads us across the frame and through this lovely area. There are interesting details, very pleasant light, colours and atmosphere. I also like how the description becomes even more thorough and rewarding with the human presence and the full sky. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
Periko (6398) 2015-05-19 22:54
The lady has a great sight with many interesing things to enjoy, such as that sky or these sail boats.
It seems a good place to rest.
TFS & regards
danos (103216) 2016-06-10 23:32
nice the view of the town with the sitting woman on the bench to enjoy the beautiful and charmy area with the lot of the sailing boats to dominating the scene.
Have a good WE,Danos
mcmtanyel (29752) 2016-08-12 18:19
Wherever it was, it is a lovely harbor view made even prettier by the inclusion of the lady looking out at the ocean. She serves to draw our attention to the boats in the harbor.
