Taken under bright daylight that allowed a metallic-texture reflection over water.
A scene from a visit in the Jaffa old-port, exactly one year ago.

Nice reflections, creating a perfect graphical effect.
Square format and the metallic texture creates an artisanal effect.
TFS and best regards

Bonsoir, cher Ike,
Les reflets sur l'eau nous réservent bien des surprises, un jeu de palettes extraordinaire. Les coques et les mouvements de l'eau sont superbement reproduits.
Très bonne soirée.

what a beautiful atmosphere, the composition is spectacular and I like the reflection and the attractive POV. Great view,

a wonderful reflections picture, very crisp and vibrant in its definition. There's a fine dynamism in your composition and a strong sense of movement hardly restricted by the borders of the frame. I love the graphism of this composition and the clear and vivid colours that convey a fantastic light. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

If well cropped, like this, reflections can make really attractive abstract art. The boat hulls give us a good starting point to follow the suddenly curving ropes!
I could certainly live with this on my wall!
My warm regards,

The capture of the ripples and the the reflections on the water are assets to the composition. I like the effect of the light on the colours of the water. Well done, have a nice day.

I'm so glad you mentioned it in your note, because I couldn't think of the perfect word to describe this particular reflection, and I think "metallic" is absolutely spot on! That shiny surface gives a slightly unique perspective on the traditional water reflection. Good idea to fill a majority of the frame with the abstract visual, there's just enough of the boats to let us in on what were seeing rippling throughout. I'm curious as the the "squigglies" along the bottom of the frame, is that simply just part of the water surface reflection, or something else causing that effect? This is a fun, isolated and well realized photo. Enjoy the day ahead.

nice way to show us the maritime side and character of Jaffa.
Enjoy the way you composed and framed the scene.Together with these abstract looking reflections it makes your composition eye-catching!
Have a nice day

You shows alone a very small part of the Old Jaffa-port.
But I can enjoy of the reflections, exactly a aquarelle painting.
Excellent composition, nice captured.
Very well done, TFS.

Bien vu et réaliser, bon cadrage des bateaux laissant un grand espace a ces reflets fantastique, belle réalisation
adramad (46542) 2014-01-14 7:53
Very beautiful this composition reminiscent of a modern painting, great reflexes both hull boats, as the mooring ropes, glare, lights and colors in the water are wonderful.
The image has a luscious color in these very natural tones.
Excellent brightness and very good focus.
Very good job. I love it.
Enjoy a happy evening.

The reflection looks like a piece of abstract painting. It's a very nice work well done.
macjake (69223) 2014-01-14 18:58
water reflection photos on TE are like a bone to a dog...irrestible :)
and why not right?
I like that you added in a little bit of the boat too, just to make it easier to visualize.
strong wiggles in the water too.
enjoy your day
delpeoples (58618) 2014-01-14 20:27
A stunning photo, with those lovely metallic colours and light on the water. It is a photo that brings to mind very clearly Ourania's lovely reflection work. I like the tight framing and the abstract quality to the image. You could take that same POV and every time you would get something different because of the changing light. Well done!
danos (99309) 2014-01-15 8:18
a beautiful seascape scenery with the colourful reflections to make the image even more effective.I like this beautiful synthesis with the light to enhance the vivid colours of the image.

Ciao Ike, lovely composition with fascinating reflections, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio
UlfE (14641) 2014-01-15 10:13
A really great reflection photo. Very good that you included part of the two boats and the ropes because a pure reflection would not have been very exciting. TFS and have nice evening!
eldancer1 (36343) 2014-01-15 10:30
More like an abstract painting than a photograph, nicely done with good lighting and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
boa (7411) 2014-01-15 12:52
beautiful reflections from the boats and it is easy to dream away when looking at reflections in the water:)
A nice and creative shot, Tfs!
Have a nice evening/

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Lepa igra boja na vodi.
Dobar snimak i kontrast, lepo pokazano mesto i trenutak, lepe boje.
Nice view and a second ...
Beautiful play of colors on the water.
Good footage and contrast nicely shown the place and moment, beautiful colors.
All the best.

Fantastic reflection that look like an abstract paint, good color, lighting and exposure, distinct photo, well done.

Hi Ike, beautifully this picture has been taken. Colors, sharpness, clarity and I like the reflection. Perfectly well done. Tfs.
All the best,
Kielia (24077) 2014-01-17 4:43
a very strong impression, you have very well realized the artistic potential of the reflections.
What I also like is the amazing contrast of the colors. The composition is also successful. My compliments!
RhodieIke (11744) 2014-01-18 2:02
You know I am a sucker for reflections. Love the Fg ripples and squiggles, super colours and light.
Well spotted and presented,
amaryllis (37039) 2014-01-18 6:05
comme tu dois le savoir, je suis attirée par les reflets et ta photo avec le devant de ces deux bateaux et le mouvement de l'eau donnent un superbe reflet et couleurs
josepmarin (58359) 2014-01-23 10:20
I like the graphical power of this composition, its nice simplicity, and the good proposed visual angle, emphasizing the beauty of the reflections of the boats and of the ropes on the wavinesses of the water.
A great idea, and a good work.
berek (50504) 2014-12-22 20:08
The reflections on the water we hold many surprises, a set of special pallets. Shells and water movements are beautifully reproduced.
ChrisJ (115575) 2015-05-03 10:46
Spotted this one in your gallery. A superb shot focusing primarily on the reflections with an attractive mix of blue and white. The streak of red top right adds a fine warm cold color contrast. Good sharpness and density levels. Nice repetition of the ripples in the water. Tfs.
