One of the lady-rowers in this picture, turned away and started a full-force rowing session.
Her face expression show how much of strength she put on the task, and concentrated. Also, see the wake of the oar on water surface - left a notable turbulence on.

A very well composed photograph, the boat following the thirds line, nicely. The surface is the water is eye-catching with its repeating ripples and excellent shimmering reflections.
The lady is brave. I have great admiration for her and her effort!
I have just been watching the Winter Olympics and am amazed at the stamina and bravery shown there!
have a great day,

This is an excellent action snapshot. It is nice to see the woman face showing that she is trying really very hard. I like the arrangement with nice colors and superb reflections (would be nice to see the whole boat and right paddle-rowing direction, but this is only minor flaw).
Very well done.

The reflections on the water are assets to the composition. You have captured well the action of the rower. The light has a good effect on the colours. Have a nice day.

it is nice to keep your body in shape and good condition and the rowing woman is really giving it a go. Well captured expression on her face shows the effort she puts into her activity. I like a bit of shore included in the image which frames it neatly and blurred reflections on the water.
Good colors and light.
Have a nice evening

a delightful picture, you captured the action and the lady's effort with great sharpness and placed the scene in a marvelous, liquid, luminous and colourful context. The surrounding scenery is shown through intriguing hints in the reflections, many fine diagonals enhance the dynamic impression we got at first glance. If the lady could see this photo, she'd appreciate her practice along the Yarkon River even more. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely evening,

The photo seem to be two river and woman rowing at the up and the reflections ( great ones)at the lower part
Very symailar at some of Ourania captures and just saw her comment, the last one
And yes the woman expresion isa mix of efford and fatigue ( my idea)
jcpix (13404) 2014-02-13 18:52
That expression would suggest concentration and physical exertion, you've caught this at a prime moment to convey the energy put into this activity. You've placed her well within the frame, technically very much in line with the rule of thirds. What I most enjoy about that aspect is that ii separates the background and foreground water colors and effects, adding that little extra nuance to the overall image. Sharp, clear and timed just right. :) Thanks for providing us with another fun and lively shot along the river. Enjoy the day ahead. Take good care.

bello scatto, dinamico per il movimento e splendido per i colori e il riflesso.
La signora è molto concentrata e la sua espressione aggiunge valore alla foto.
saxo042 (37224) 2014-02-14 1:09
A picture with a lot of force and action! Her facial expression really shows the power she is using here. A great picture with very good reflections too.
delpeoples (52905) 2014-02-14 3:41
Yes that is a face of determination for sure. I can imagine that this lady would be a formidable opponent, on the water or on land. I like the light here and the richly contrasted reflections. A photo with great impact, well done.
Warmest wishes, happy Friday

Good candid of female rower, mirrored in abstract ripples. All forms of rowing are popular in California, especially paddle boards, requiring standing up on a surfboard.
Thanks for sharing,
UlfE (14641) 2014-02-14 12:29
A really fine photo of this rowing lady. Her concentrated facial expression is really great and I love the ripples and the reflections the water. Could almost be taken along my own river. TFS and have a nice weekend!

Lep pogled i trenutak ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, kontrast i ostrina, lepo pokazana dama koja vesla i refleks na vodi, lepe boje.
Lepo ulovljen trenutak igre boje na vodi.
Sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.
Nice view and a moment ...
Good time recording, contrast and sharpness, nice lady demonstrated that the oars and reflection on the water, beautiful colors.
Beautifully captured moments game of color on the water.
All the best for the weekend, good luck.
mcmtanyel (12029) 2014-02-14 18:23
The reflections on the water paint a beautiful picture, as usual. Her red outfit especially stands out on the surface of the water.
clic (14712) 2014-02-16 18:14
So, two years after you rekindled an old relationship! The kayakist appears more energic this time, to the point of drawing beautiful reflects!

Bon cadrage serré , lumière et reflets excellent, l'expression de force ce dessine sur son visage
Gigidusud (14675) 2014-02-25 10:50
Great capture of the sporting scene with splendid reflections on the water. Well done!
kato (11630) 2014-03-04 20:23
You're capturing well this woman's rower by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the spectacle in which the woman is rowing boat strengthly using two oars in the river. She wears the suitable uniform for this kind of sports. And, the the small wake on water surface and reflection draw out a good effect.
papagolf21 (84740) 2014-03-07 7:11
Bonsoir, cher Ike,
Manifestement cette femme connaît ce sport et sait manoeuvrer les avirons avec talent.
La prise de vue est fort bien réalisée, l'on sent l'effort et la mouvance de l'embarcation.
jmdias (54091) 2014-05-12 17:19
nice image. I liked the effort of the personage and the match between the reflections, colors and shapes here.
