After 5 stormy days (and nights), the sun came out again, and the fishermen again set out to sea, so did I: Went for a stroll in Old-Jaffa port, to catch some reflections (which I intend to post in the future). While taken an easy time photography, I saw this fisherman collected a small number of fishs in the net. The fishs did not know the storm was already over...
Location in the port: 32.0515, 34.7488

Very nice scene, with the image of this fisherman, hard at work to unravel its network and take their catch, which in this case is greatly diminished.
I really like these shades of blue sea, with these glare and reflections, is a magnificent background.
Very good brightness and sharpness.
Have a nice day.

An eye-catching picture featuring this fisherman and his rather meagre catch. The reflections in the background are quite superb. I like the point of view and composition, which has a good sense of animation. Good colours and sharpness.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. You have captured well the action of the fisherman. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

une photo bien nette de ce pêcheur qui regarde son filet où effectivement peu de poissons mais peut être va t-il raprtir?...
de très beaux reflets sur l'eau et de belles couleurs

Bonsoir, cher Ike,
Je n'ai jamais compris comment les marins arrivaient à s'y retrouver dans leur filet de pêche. Les filets sont de véritables entrelacs, voire des puzzles incompréhensibles (du moins, pour ma part) !!
L'image est excellente et réalisée sur le vif.

Looks like the guy is fishing in the harbor. Nice capture though with good lighting and dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

nice capture of the scene,very good sharpness and clarity!
Royaldevon (17811) 2013-01-14 12:27
You have done well to get such fine reflections but, for me, the fisherman, showing immense concentration, is the star of the show. He is well placed in the frame, nicely sharp and shows up well against the white reflections.
I know it probably wasn't planned but don't the blue and white stripes, in the b/g reflections, link well with the fisherman's shirt!
My arm regards,
ourania (12469) 2013-01-14 13:44
the fisherman must be a bit frustrated, but surely knows to read the weather and the habits of the fish. You have placed him very well in the frame to attract attention to his figure and activity. I like very much the lustrous reflections as a backdrop to the whole scene. It would be nice if you could avoid the bright white surfaces next to him but I know it was difficult and the fiesherman wasn't posing:) Clarity is great. The chromatic harmony and the morning light are lovely. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a good night,

Good morning Ike,
nice the scenery with the fisherman to do his daily work with his nets.I like the created reflections on the surface of the sea as the excellent light and the colour management of the shot.
Have a good day,Danos

Hello Ike ,
Le pêcheur est tout à son travail , qui demande toujours de l'attention , même si la pêche n'est pas miraculeuse .
Jolie scène de la vie quotidienne .

serp2000 (29242) 2013-01-14 23:52
I like this topic, it reminds me "The Old man and the sea" of Hemingway. Perfect sharpness, vivid colors and attractive reflection. Good contribution to the fisherman's theme.

Ciao Ike, lovely composition with fisherman in action, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
jhm (122490) 2013-01-15 3:39
You've captured these in photos with exquisite clarity and management of the strong morning light.
The colours are brilliant and this fisherman an unforgettable figure.
An excellent composition, a lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Lep pogled na ribolovca sa mrezom ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina i kontrast, lepe boje.
Dobar tekst i kompozicija, lepo pokazano.
Lepi refleksi na vodi.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc, sve najbolje.
Nice view of the angler with the network ...
A good time recording, sharpness and contrast, beautiful color.
Good content and composition, well demonstrated.
Nice reflections on the water.
Good evening and peaceful night, all the best.
clic (11045) 2013-01-15 8:08
He can be disappointed, for shure, but I'm convinced you're not, given the many points this picture brought you, convied by his attentive posture over the net and those fabulous reflexions!
josepmarin (55063) 2013-01-15 9:58
a fresh and spontaneous capture, which you have caught with a great sharpness and with a splendid light.
The fisherman collecting some fish of his net provides a great vitality to your composition.
It is a beautiful work on the daily life.
rbassin (11167) 2013-01-15 11:32
Très belle prise de vue, très belle couleur en surface de l'eau avec les reflets.
cornejo (18130) 2013-01-15 11:37
Hello Ike, I love this great shot of the beautiful and interesting scene, taking the old fisherman catches network, we offer here. A charming and interesting image, captured with very good technique and quality. Very good and nice job perfectly done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.
Sonata11 (28391) 2013-01-15 17:41
beautiful capture of daily life scene. Wonderfully executed this moment. It is pleasant and beautiful photo. Like it. Thank you.
delpeoples (45018) 2013-01-15 22:17
It seems that the fish had been hiding in the storm! The poor fisherman, after all that hard work and all he gets are 1 or 2 fish. But thanks to the storm, the water looks so beautiful and glassy. The reflections on the right FG are beautiful and I love the effect of the fishing net, it looks so fine, like a spider's web. Wonderful choice of subject matter (I LOVE fishermen) and a superb quality to the photo.
thebest (3370) 2013-01-15 22:23
How on earth do you untangle the net - this poor chappy hasn't fare well for his hard work - not much of a catch.
Excellent daily life image I like the overall content of your photo especially the colours & the clarity - the water has a really nice glossy effect to it.
krzychu30 (8935) 2013-01-16 0:21
interesting and excellently composed scene.Fisherman at his daily actions and and the background,which really catches our eyes.Just love these beautiful reflections in the water.They add a lot of charm to the whole composition.The image has superb overall quality.You captured it perfectly.
Have a nice day
emilbo (20872) 2013-01-16 9:56
Magnifique scène de pêche mais pas chanceux le gars, les poissons se font rares. Une belle présentation de qualité et bien composée. La position du pêcheur est très intéressante et les tons de bleus sont superbes avec de merveilleux reflets.
Bravo mon ami,
jmdias (45830) 2013-01-16 15:39
very beautiful image., the fisher is very well positioned, natural and sharp and the background with these reflections is special. TFS.
raszid62 (18216) 2013-01-17 2:19
Great report from the working fisherman. But as you can see the catch of the day was not too successful. The fisherman has a very noble, truly royal face. Excellent quality and great color image.
הצהריים טובים. דו"ח גדול מדייג העבודה. אבל כפי שאתה יכול לראות את השלל של היום לא הייתה מוצלח מדי. הדייג יש לו פנים מאוד אציליים, מלכותיים באמת. איכות מעולה ותמונה צבעונית גדולה. .
macjake (39235) 2013-01-17 4:39
funny that you mentioned the reflections, as that is what caught my eye at the first moment with this shot.
I look forward to viewing those soon :)
the man is actually very striking with his black hat, black gloves and white/black stripped shirt :)
elenimavrandoni (5803) 2013-01-18 11:41
Hello Ike, I find this a great picture with all the details highlighted beautifully, including the amazing clear reflection on the water and the sharp colors.
Great clarity and detail of the fish nets!

sacavem (18578) 2013-01-24 13:54
Good work to capture this image. Very good colour, contrast and definition.
gus72 (2508) 2013-01-24 19:25
HI Ike !!
I can see the fisherman with hardly ... any fish...... bad luck on the day...
but the reflections are absolutely fantastic, really, really nice.
very nice spontaneous shot...... it has several interesting elements.
Have a nice week end.
Fis2 (73146) 2013-01-29 10:16
Good evening Ike!
A very curious scene.
I like colors and sharpness.
Good reportorial shot.
Cricri (86535) 2013-01-30 9:53
Une belle scéne du pêcheur prise au bon moment, étirant son filet, la lumière est très belle et donne de merveilleux reflets
jcpix (3331) 2013-01-31 14:47
I always find it interesting to see photos of locals going about their daily business. This is a great moment captured of such a thing, a fisherman working his trade and doing what he knows best. I like the sharpness of this picture, and the reflections on the water give even more interest to the scene. A slight distraction by the bar in the bottom right corner (which I'm sure was unavoidable from your point of view), but otherwise this is a splendid composition that places this gentleman in a strong focal point and shows us his natural environment. Great shot!
jemaflor (69035) 2013-02-04 3:14
An interesting scene with this man and the net, excellent light and brightness, Nice reflections on water.
maria-v1981 (10403) 2013-02-14 4:03
Very interesting shot you have there, I love the composition, colors and level of details. The simple life evoked here may not seem glamorous, but it sure is interesting compared to our too-fast paced life.
Have a nice day,
kato (6801) 2013-04-03 5:51
You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle that a fisherman is handling the net on boat bending the waist. The whole is unified well the bright tone and a good arrangement. And, the reflection projected to the water draws out a good effect in this image.
