Three pictures (2 WS's), showing an old fisherman fixing a net, after the boat return from night out at sea. Sitting on one corner of Jaffa old fishing port, caring for wire after wire, apparently with great skill.
The two Small-Egret (Egreta-Grazetta) is patiently waiting for their due's.

it's great to watch a skillful person doing what they know best. Their movements have a fascinating elegance and rhythm. You've captured these in all three of your photos with exquisite clarity and management of the strong morning light. The colours are brilliant and this fisherman an unforgettable figure. I like all three photos. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

Like this daily life shot where the fisherman is fixing this net. I like the way he is keeping the cigarette in his mouth and at the same time using his fingers skilfully. The colors , sharpness and light are excellent.

bella immagine ricca di luce con l'anziano pescatore intento a riparare le reti.
Mi piace l'inserimento dei gabbiani che aspettano qualcosa da mangiare,

Hello Ike ,
An excellent documentary picture , well framed and composed , full of interesting elements . The fisherman in his working attitude is perfectly captured .
pierrefonds (65276) 2012-04-22 17:23
The fishing net is helping to frame the scene. The point of view is showing the action of the old fisherman. The morning light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.
Sonata11 (33763) 2012-04-22 20:25

Lovely daylife scene, you got even a piece of the blue sea and a seagull! Nice moment very well captured.
Royaldevon (37927) 2012-04-23 2:45
Oh, I'm so cross, I wrote a really long critique and somehow lost the whole lot as I was updating it. Dam!!
Anyway, here goes again!
I fine shot with so much to see and so much to learn. The fisherman is very well positioned in the frame, with his vivid red seat as an added attraction. You have controlled the light well for there are many pale colours in this strong sunlight.
Although I like all the shots, I do have a slight favourite, the latter one in your w/s from a slightly different angle. Here, it is so easy to engage with the fisherman and the nets make a fine lead into the rest of the shot.
Have a lovely day,
delpeoples (57278) 2012-04-23 3:08
Hi dear Ike

jlbrthnn (76037) 2012-04-24 6:35
Fishermen are still subjects of interesting and attractive pictures. The focused picture, is full of details very clear. Light and color are excellent. Bravo.
Have a nice day
ManuMay (36097) 2012-04-24 9:08
A beautiful photo that I think a beautiful tribute to these workers who are working every day by hand, so hard work always deserves to be recognized ...
The composition, definition, and colors are really good, and the two WS. In my opinion you got a great use of light in a place where the strong light conditions are not ideal for photography ...
ciakgiak (30429) 2012-04-24 12:02
sono sempre molto belle queste scene strappate alla vita quotidiana, molto interessante la vista del pescatore intento a sistemare le sue reti.
Molto belli i colori e la luce, eccellente la qualità dell'immagine.
Un caro saluto.
adramad (44846) 2012-04-24 12:42
Very good three images that we have a very vivid picture of everyday life, is a superb portrait of the fisherman mending their nets.

Belle et intéressante scéne d'action du pécheur en plein travail, bon cadrage et deux WS en bon complément
Kielia (24077) 2012-04-26 5:36
this is a great daily life shot. There are so many interesting and fascinating details visible and the perspective is excellent. But what I like most is the nonchalant attitude of the fisherman in the white dress. My compliments!
danos (96760) 2012-04-27 0:35

Lep pogled na coveka koji plete mrezu za ribolov, dobra kompozicija.
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina, kontrast i prikaz lepim bojama.
Imajte mirnu noc i dobar san.
Nice view of the man who weaves a net for fishing, good composition.
A good moment shot, sharpness, contrast and display beautiful colors.
Keep calm and a good night sleep.
All the best.

charming portrait of the man at work.
I like his pose and the face he is making. There are plenty of interesting elements around him which make the composition look very busy, I like such scenes.
Very well seen and photographed,
