Three friends set out to sea on their yacht, I reckon each has a different role on the boat: One is on the helm, the second is deploying the sails, and the third I noticed was responsible for the coffee… what a hobby for the weekend's.
Took this from the most far point of the pier, in the Herzliya marina. The top of the mast was constantly tilting, any small movement of the boat affected it's stability - so reckon it was a bit blured as a result.
32.1660, 34.7927 on the map. Cropped the 16:9 aspect ratio.

If there is a better format to present this photo, I don't know it. It's a beautiful shot of the sailboat, colorful, sharp and well composed.

bella e semplice, perfettamente perpendicolare e con colori nel più classico dei contrasti per quello che riguarda il mare.
Tanta voglia di libertà espressa in così poco spazio...

Interesantan tekst o putnicima na jahti i zaduzenjima, lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana jahta i horizont, lepe boje.
Lepa su putovanja sa jahtom.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
An interesting article about the passengers on the yacht and charges, nice view and a moment ...
Good time recording and contrast nicely demonstrated yacht and the horizon, beautiful colors.
Fancy traveling the yacht.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.

I like very much the theme, the light and the colours of your picture, how you adjusted the frame to the height of the boat and how clear your capture is. You managed the contrasts and the brightness of the light very effectively. There's a delightful sense of movement in the lower part and very appealing depth in the seascape. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Fine view of this sailboat from the stern, and obviously not windy for the mast is straight up and no whitecaps on the water.
Therefore coffee sipping ok before heavy winds.
Thanks for sharing,
PS: Actually the young female in the bikini at June Lake beach was removing her shorts for Paparazi Ray...

The distance between the saitboat and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the sailboat. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice dya.
jcpix (13930) 2014-06-17 19:30
I have taken a similar picture, so I must applaud your decision on this one! haha Plain and simple, but it sure projects that idea of sailing off for a good time with friends and having nothing to detract from the fun ahead. Bright, airy and well composed to accentuate the height of the mast and sail...which I'm sure will be getting put to use shortly. :) Nicely observed and presented. Enjoy the new day. All the best.
mcmtanyel (22660) 2014-06-17 19:47
This is a lovely image of a yacht sailing in the direction of the sunset. The top of the mast looks just fine to me, BTW.
I am done with my pre-general assembly touristy stuff and have started the meetings.
Sonata11 (33831) 2014-06-17 20:09
wonderful composition. Beautifully done it and perfect light management with great colors, sharpness, clarity.
A pleasant composition.
Well done and have a great day, Barbara

Hello Ike. When I see the white sail boat, I think of vacation, freedom, and the big wide world. The boat is sort of a symbol for many things. But we all like these images.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.
jhm (152938) 2014-06-18 5:24
Sailboats are Always a very interesting subject, alone the feeling of the small boat on this great water.
Your picture is made in high quality with nice pleasant colours.
Excellent perspective and depth, nice choice of your angle.
Composition and presentation be superb.
Very well done, TFS.

I really miss sailing since I move to Las Vegas, there's Lake Mead nearby but nothing is better than sailing the ocean. Awesome capture of this sailboat with good details. Well done, tfs.

Cricri (119495) 2014-06-28 8:45
Un format verticale qui s'imposait, deux couleurs dominante le bleu et le blanc, bon POV, belle scène de vie mis en image

I use to write about " butterflies of the seas" when I comment pictures of sailboats; yours appears like taking a breath, wings closed, mesmerized by such an infinite blue extent, while flying through the ocean.
Quite a peaceful and attractive scenery you show above.
jmdias (64444) 2014-07-10 2:15
interesting point of view showing the boat in the back position, giving a sense of going out to the sea. nice contrast between the shapes of the boat and the sea and sky.
PS: I hope you and your family will be safe in this another delicate moment for your country.
ChrisJ (114043) 2014-07-16 6:33
Comparatively good sharpness considering the boat was in movement. Good color, saturation and density levels. Smart choice of a vertical format with the tall mast which neatly bisects the image into two. Good placement of the horizon line off center. Tfs!
berek (50494) 2014-07-23 7:43
A summary of freedom, with a picture that is as good as described.simple and beautiful composition.
papagolf21 (101944) 2014-07-26 0:31
Bonjour, cher Ike,
CE beau voilier fend la mer avec une beauté toute particulière.
Un choix de cadrage très judicieux.
Une bien belle réussite.

Small before taste over the next holidays !!! Pretty framing on the sailboat which cross. I appreciate the beautiful light which illuminates this scene. Pleasant and resting photo. Well considering and thank you for the note.
siudzi (34141) 2014-08-15 23:13
An elegant capture this taken with simple but classy composition. You have acheieved an eye catching result here due to the well executed color contrast and natural saturation. TFS.
ruisc_pt (10892) 2014-09-15 13:27
Difficult image even at 1/1000 secs yet you got a reasonable sharpness even though the tilting...
Nice shot Ike
NorthernLight (2383) 2014-09-22 1:05
a nice hobby. I also like water and boats.
You've perfectly captured the boat in the vertical format. The winning color combination of shades of blue and white makes the picture beautiful.
Kind regards from Sweden
fritzi007 (10715) 2015-09-27 13:02
I think you live in the Herzliya marina, perfect photo, well done!
Royaldevon (38860) 2016-02-11 3:37
With such constant changing of position, this must have been difficult to photograph but you have managed it extremely well.
It must be an exhilarating hobby!
I like how you have given the photograph a real sense of adventure, as the boat heads out to sea, no other vessels or features in view!
The vertical format works so very well, emphasising the height of the mast and, therefore the sail!
A great way to spend a w/e!
Have a lovely day,
