An interesting composition with much to see, yet not overly busy. I like the light and colours and the reflections. Good choice of the vertical format.

Good shot of this small harbour, well-framed boat, with excellent reflections in water, a good combination between color and light.

This doesn't look like winter, as I know it. The light is lovely, creating attractive, rippling reflections in the water.
The forward boat is nicely angled and creates a direct line with the tall tower, strongly positioned in the b/g, whilst the second boat works on the opposing diagonal.
Thanks again for your good wishes, and all the best to you and your family, Bev :-)

Oh i love fishing marina's like this one.
especially when there are boats with a bit of rust and character just like the one in the fg to the left.
lots of whites and pale blues, so that rusty red is a nice touch of contrasting color.
good photo all around, i like the composition too.
Happy Holidays to you as well

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the boats. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Season Greetings.

You're capturing well this fishing port by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see a lot of fishing boats which anchored to the port and buildings. It's also impressive in the hill and church in back. And, the reflection pf boat projected to the water draws out a good effect.

J'aime beaucoup ce petit port de pêche. J'aime la lumière du mois de janvier qui nous offre de belles ombres mais aussi du blanc éclatant.
Cricri (111373) 2013-12-25 6:02
Belle image de ce petit port de ton pays, la lumière et les couleurs sont très agréable, reflets et bon POV
Joyeux Noel a toi aussi
eldancer1 (32033) 2013-12-25 7:30
Looks like but little marina and it's surprising how those little can navigate and survive the ocean. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.
ourania (36366) 2013-12-25 9:32
a lovely picture that uses the converging perspectives of the boats to frame the dense assembly of boats in the background. The long boats add dynamism and interest, their details stand out more clearly than those in the intricate view beyond them. The light is strong and agreeable, the whites are very attractive amid the deep blue tones that make the greater part of the frame. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,
nikkitta (16758) 2013-12-25 11:30
When in your country it seems you like to stroll along ports, good composition with boats at the front and the tower of the church at the very far and on a hill it seems
Like the view of the warehouses
Thanks for your very kind wishes

Beautiful blue sky and blue sea in a sunny day, good pov and good frame to show a fascinating view at the harbour, distinct color, good shoot.
mcmtanyel (16625) 2013-12-25 18:30
This is an inviting photo of a phishing port full of quaint fishing boats. The reflections on the water are very nice.
Thank you for your Christmas greeting. I wish you and your loved ones a peaceful holiday season, too.
ChrisJ (104209) 2013-12-26 3:24
Harbor shots always look great and the reflections in the still water amplify the effect. Nice repetition of the fishing boats with good sharpness and punchy light contrasts yet with no oe in the highlights. A safe and happy and prosperous New Year to you!
Waylim (25368) 2013-12-26 11:50
A very nice fishing port on a beautiful day with blue sky and good light. Good photo quality with really nice reflection of the boats on the deep blue sea water.
delpeoples (55090) 2013-12-26 20:12
Judging from this and your other photos of Jaffa, it is a city that I would love to see and hope to do so one day. The landscape shot is perfect, I love the crisp, vivid colours and the glassy reflections. The perspective and low POV are enchanting. Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful evening.
Warmest wishes to you and the family - and puppies
Romano46 (18472) 2013-12-29 2:33
il fascino dei porti è un richiamo irresistibile per un fotografo, con i riflessi nelle acque placide e la ruggine che decora le fiancate delle barche.
In questa tua ben studiata anche la composizione per le due diagonali che disegnano le barche in primo piano.
Eccellenti i colori grazie ad una bella giornata luminosa.
Ciao e buona domenica

Lep pogled na pristaniste sa ribarskim camcima ...
Dobra kompozicija i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak sa refleksom na vodi.
Dobar snimka, kontrast, lepe boje.
Imajte lep i uspesan dan, sve najbolje.

Excellent capture to convince us of the hustle and bustle of this fishing port.
The boats seem to be moored in all directions which emphasizes the busy feeling.
A beautiful bright picture with nice reflections on the foreground.
Best regards, Paul
