The Turks living next to any stretch of water are mad about fishing, the extreme manifestation of this obsession is best seen at Galata bridge in Istanbul.
Small boys are at it, old men too- all ages.
here by the shores of the Black Sea we saw many people fishing as the sun set. I focused on only one in order to make the scene more of a communion between the individual and the setting sun.
In workshop you can see the same fellow with his two friends.

The colors and lighting in this image are the most compelling and captivating aspects. I love the nice colors of the sky and the darkened waters, as well as the rich salmon colored light of the fading sunset. The nice sunlight reflections and aqua of the furthermost water area also blends well with the colors and provides a good deep feeling to the image.

Hi Klaudio, I have just returned from Istanbul and of course I have seen all these fishermen near Galata bridge and Eminonu. Even women were fishing. I wonder it this guy caught anything except the last rays of sun. Narvelous colours in this nicely composed shot. Beautiful clouds and reflection. Romantic landscape.
Warm regrads MAlgo

Nice one, simple but subtle, and with the human element gently blending into the shadowy side of the photo. This kind of shot knocks most sunset pictures into a cocked hat.

Sunsets are always beautiful to watch on the sea, and the inclusion of the fisher is perfect in this picture! Wonderful colors and perfect framing to show it! Great composition! Well done!

Despite the simplicity of the composition, despite the usual maddness of the Black Sea (which didn't show its real face in this photo), the soft-pastel colours and vastness of the sea give a feeling of peace and tranquility. I also liked the Workshop. Best regards.

It is nice to see such a beautiful scene from NE Turkey, where I was two year ago. Well chosen moment, composition and camera settings!

U velikom sam zaostatku u tvojoj galeriji Dado, pa sam najpre probrao scene sa ljudima koje mi prvo privlače pažnju. Sada je došao red na pejzaže i mogu ti reći da mi je lepo ovde na obali Crnog Mora. Ti kuda god kreneš ti izađeš na more. Blago tebi!

I like this calm and vital scene, with the solitary fisherman and a wonderful sight on a beautiful landscape of the Black Sea.
The grey tonalities on the sea and in the clouds, contrasting with the warm light and the shines of the setting sun, create a very pleasant atmosphere.
A superb work.
