While walking along the Yarkon river bank, I heard, than saw these three ladies speak about rowing techniques. It's a daily common scene over the river especially on Saturdays, when the river "filled" with boats.
Also on weekends mostly, many are jogging, riding bikes, besides those who just enjoy an easy stroll and taking pictures.

This is one sport that I would love to try but I have never found the right place. Nice capture of those actions with good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

I enjoy your Yarkon River scene for its composition and the people enjoying Nature via rowing, jogging, strolling and relaxing.
Too often in California, aggressive 'water departments' have concreted in rivers, removing them from public use. I enjoy our Northern California river parks and their natural environment, which is almost non-existent in Southern California.

a very delightful scene from the river. We get an agreeable glimpse at some of the activities that attract people to this place, a wonderful scenery to exercise in and so close to the city. I like very much the subtle diagonal that divides the frame in two, depth and clarity are excellent. The light is so clear and vivid, the colours and the reflections make a brilliant and pleasing impression. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

at a first glance it looks like they have problem and are going to crash but after reading your note i understand they just have a conversation:)These boat seems like they can go very fast(if you can the technique)and it would be fun to try. Nice Daily Life scene from Tel Aviv, tfs!
Have a nice evening/

What a great title! It suits the shot perfectly! You see, women can confer anywhere and with great conviction!
The disturbance in the water tells a tale, how the ladies are turning their crafts to be better positioned for their consultation!
A great daily life shot, well composed, with focal figures nicely placed in the f/g and lots of supporting details to set the scene.
My warm regards,

Bonsoir, cher Ike,
Le sport sous différentes formes, à pied, en kayak , tout est bon pour se maintenir en forme.
Il faut dire que l'environnement se prête à faire du sport.
Belle ambiance générale.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. The point of view is showing the action of the rowing boats. The good luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

Your title gave me a laugh, it sounded more like something I would expect from an office setting. I guess if this is your office though, then why not. :) A great place to have a meeting, yeah? You have a nice series of pictures from along the river, I suspect you don't take a walk here without a camera...and it's no wonder, there seems to be a lot of photo opportunities. A good amount of life and activity in this scene, it looks and feels upbeat, I can see what would make this a popular place. Another fine capture and presentation from here, and a hope we continue to see more in the future. Enjoy the day ahead.

I hope these rowers were able to get out of there without being tangled. A very nice capture, I like the inclusion of the folks in the park.

Harmonious and lively scenery with people jogging and rawing in the park, it is a nice environment too, good pov and good frame to show it all, interesting composition, good shoot.

You're capturing well this weekend scene by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the peaceful spectacle in which residents are enjoying the sport such as jogging or rowing at river or river bank. It looks like to show the importance which has the time of peacefulness in life. It's also impressive in calm river and rich greenery pf bank/field.

December 21 beginning of winter with a summer picture out of your country.
In Belgium are the temperatures but 4° Celsius.
Nice place for all sports, in or out water.
Sharpness and clarity make these picture attractive.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Ciao caro Ike
Cropping out the sky has done a wonderful job in balancing the light and colour. The reflections on the water are a lovely silver and gold tone and I like the sense of movement in the water. Again the gum trees are a welcome addition to the composition and the people add another element of interest.

nice the picturesque view of the scene with the three ladies to 'chat' about rowing techniques,during their presentation in the Yarkon river. A good snapshot with the lot of people to enjoy their walk or their stroll in the park.Excellent the light and the colour management of the scene.
Have a good weekend,Danos

A pretty scene, we see the attraction for the sport of many people, some browsing these canoes, while others do jogging in the green meadow, beautiful reflections and lights in the water.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I love it.
Enjoy a good weekend.

Three for the price of one, this time!
And I notice they form 'one hell of a sportive trio'
The overall mood of your picture is to exercising, given all those guys running after health!
Nice reflects too!
mirosu (12754) 2014-01-17 3:11
Nice photo showing miscellaneous human sport activities. Looks like very nice place for exercise. Light is nice the light reflections excellent. Well done.
Didi (55465) 2014-01-17 3:43
Very nice scene
Just a little suggestion
It would have been fit the scene slightly to the left to avoid cutting rowing boat and fully include the rider in the top left, this is very important in the compositions
COSTANTINO (52782) 2014-02-03 7:27
you are very lucky to walk along the Yarkon
