This place seem very nice. I like the way you caught the louds parallel to the long pier. Good colours and fine details. The view is charming. Thanks.

Very good pov and wonderfull colors.

TFS and best regards
danielswalsh (13599) 2009-05-19 23:27
Nice shot Danos;
I actually worked in Richmond for many years (#3 Road and Blundell), but I never did make it out to Steveston. Rich color and sharp detail, but I think the mids could use a little boost as they seem a bit dark.
All the best!
devimeuxbe (58557) 2009-05-19 23:53
This is a nice lesson on the perspective. The clouds also are on the line. Beautifull light.

Lovely light and colors throughout the picture. I also praise the perspective made by the wooden pier.

Γεια σου Δάνο,
Πρέπει να είναι πολύ όμορφα στη μαρίνα αυτή για βολτίτσα και για ένα απολαυστικό καφεδάκι. Πολύ όμορφη η φωτογραφία σου με ωραία έντονα χρώματα και πολύ καλή αντίθεση. Διάλεξες μια πολύ καλή γωνία λήψης.
Καλή σου μέρα, Βασίλης.
Budapestman (82620) 2009-05-20 1:17
I could write it, superb spring photo....but this sight quotes the mood of the summer already. The composition of the photo is spectacular, excellent depth and clarity. I like the splendid details and the atmosphere. Have a nice day!
jlbrthnn (76037) 2009-05-20 2:04
What a depth! I like this Canadian image, agreeably coloured and lit. Framing and realization are of quality. Cheer!
Have a nice day
PixelTerror (0) 2009-05-20 2:21
Pleasant and well exposed perspective, quite empty though, not even a cat... I like the elongated cloud complementing the perspective.
Have a nice day JY
Atousa (7131) 2009-05-20 3:21
I like the harmony of the line of the clouds with other lines started from the FG to create a nice perspective..very nice shot with lots of worth seeing details n great colors..thank you.
Best regards, Atousa
Cricri (107330) 2009-05-20 4:09
Très belle perspective du chemin de bois , un endroit ou il est agréable de prendre son repas tout juste devant le port, très belle lumière
Good day for you
salvator (19102) 2009-05-20 7:19
Wonderfully shot with superb colors and a great sense of depth. The sharpness and definitons look outstanding.
vmf-214 (1648) 2009-05-20 7:36
Excellent view of Steveston Village, Nice POV looking Pier and good color contrast in this image, Beautiful blue sky with clouds. Nice sharpness and clarity Danos.
Gerrit (48316) 2009-05-20 8:02
fine clear and sharp image. The perspecttive is perfect.
Wonderful colors and contrast.
fulvio52 (8314) 2009-05-20 8:33
Superb use of the wide angle to achieve a truly striking perspective, one that leads the eye all the way to the horizon amidst a perfectly balanced display of diagonals. And I absolutely love those clouds, totally complementary and essential at enhancing the arrow-like type of effect in the picture. Great job, TFS! Have a nice evening, buddy. I'll be seeing you.
Charo (51210) 2009-05-20 11:18
Very good overview of this walk along the harbor. Excellent composition with great depth and beautiful colors.
Photo65Net (43120) 2009-05-20 12:14
A beautiful perspective, with great sunny colors.
I like these contrasts and saturation.
Have a nice day,
rodgerg (55767) 2009-05-20 12:27
The POV very well selected give an incredible and very pleasant prospect effect. A very dynamic image rich in contrast and in various details well collected.
Silvio1953 (123643) 2009-05-20 14:42
Ciao Danos, beautiful composition with splendid perspective and wonderful colors, I like a lot, very well done, ciao Silvio
parbo (11092) 2009-05-20 18:24
Skillful usage of wooden pier for creating splendid depth and perspective. The red touches worked perfectly on tents and bank while busy shelter creating splendid ambiance under wonderfully cloudy sky. Congratulations. Ευθυμίες.
syrus_persia (2270) 2009-05-21 0:12
Wonderful POV and clouds in the deep blue sky.
I like the atmosphere and how you framed it
TFS and greetings
alvaraalto (6177) 2009-05-21 4:49
I like this almost central vanishing point in this attractive image. It is a little to the right (could even be a little more) and that is good for the composition. The wooden pier between the boats and the façade is another good element.
anto95 (1840) 2009-05-21 5:19
The POV and the format are very well chosen.
Perspective and depth are very well.
trekks (14348) 2009-05-21 5:51
No I would not believe this is BC.
It looks very much European. Or maybe it is the way you have presented it so cleverly that it does not remind me of BC, although I have not been to Richmond Island. There is a Richmond and Burnaby in Vancouver :)
lrw1966 (1632) 2009-05-21 10:43
Splendid colors, details and tack sharp. Excellent notes, also. Very nicely done.
papagolf21 (86758) 2009-05-21 13:46
Bonsoir, mon ami Danos,
Quelle belle perspective avec un respect parfait des verticales (exercice difficile).
J'aime beaucoup cette composition donnant l'impression de marcher sur ces planches et de flâner tout en contemplant l'environnement.
Les couleurs claquent à merveille.
Très bien réalisé.
ciakgiak (30421) 2009-05-21 14:36
Splendid point of view on Steveston Village. It must be a very pleasant place where eating with the vision of the harbour.
Great sharpness and colours and magnificent clouds.
jonathan_hart (21274) 2009-05-21 15:01
strong perspective lines, great depth, sun, seashore, what else? a good shot ^^
gracious (20025) 2009-05-21 15:43
Excellent pov with the best depth in this beautiful image on the village! the clouds formation really makes a very nice impact and position on the whole composition!
thank you for the wonderful notes as well
my warmest regards
pierrefonds (57545) 2009-05-21 18:07
The point of view leads our eyes to infinity which is giving depth and perspective to the photo. It is also allowing us to see the details and colors of the village. The colors are enhanced by the quality of the light. Have a nice day.
BelCan75 (2201) 2009-05-21 19:55
This is a wonderful shot of Steveston Village. I have walked there before and it's a really lovely place. You did a good job capturing the atmosphere of this place and the beautiful view over the boats and a view down the boardwalk. Great light, beautiful colours and details! Great work, Danos!
hispic (9652) 2009-05-21 20:15
A radial perspective by EF16-35 markII emphasizes further the pleasant scene of this attractive wharf. Beautiful sky and light!
shevchenko (19351) 2009-05-21 20:45
Good pov and good perspective effect to show restaurant, wooden walking space and harbor parking with many boats within a shoot, feel good in a sunny day, I think the restaurant provide fresh seafoods too, thanks for sharing a nice place.
Graal (97885) 2009-05-21 23:45
nice perspective, an interesting place and presentation. Great palette of colours. I like it a lot.
litiancai (1048) 2009-05-22 1:28
The pier jutting straight out from the centre of the frame works well because the building on the right pleasantly unbalances the frame. The clouds are a great addition, but I do wish they were a little more contrasted - they look a bit dull and grey on an otherwise nice looking day.
All the best
jaywalker (16101) 2009-05-22 4:25
Hi Danos, A nice view looking up this walkway, there is very good light & so clear, the colours are excellent & very vivid & there is so much for the eye, a beautiful bright looking day that would be welcome anywhere, kind regards Wilson.
carper (96) 2009-05-22 5:33
a fantastic perspective shot here danos,
very good details and a nice point of view, well composed shot, have a nice day.
ChrisJ (99338) 2009-05-22 5:49
Did you make it to Victoria, on Vancouver Island? I really liked it there. Good use of diminishing linear perspective, with nice warm cold colour contrasts, between the red & blue. Tfs!

La perspective de ce quai en bois est la surface autour de laquelle tout s'organise, sur la gauche les bateaux et les parasols et sur la droite la terrasse et la façade du restaurant. Belle couleurs, y compris celles du ciel !
Bon week end !

joli effet de fuite dans ces lignes de plancher boisé, des rendus de textures excellents et assez naturels. Tu as bien exploité les excellentes lumières à ta disposition.

An incredible perspective indeed. This is an excellent piece of work, your POV is perfect, the light has been brilliantly managed & there is great symmetry, a lovely architectural picture. Congratulations!
Best regards from rainy Dublin,
sunamoon (10) 2009-05-23 6:35
Impresionante trayectoria!, me encanta como la imagen se pierde en el infinito, muy buena definición e increibles colores!
axiotea (21649) 2009-05-23 10:19
Plenty of details to look at, but the best is the perspective along the wooden pier and the good luminosity which gave attractive colors.
Have a good week end
Emile (20350) 2009-05-23 11:49
Beautiful place where you can enjoy the view of the marina with a lot of boats from your seat in the restaurant, very good colors, POV and framing, a pity that there is not a single person in the photo. Sharpness is perfect.
Have a nice weekend.
Fis2 (86333) 2009-05-23 12:07
Good frame and perspective.
I like the colors and sky.
Have a nice weekend.
Tue (27696) 2009-05-23 12:21
A great view of this place with really attractive, well saturated colours and a wonderful perspective down the path. Very well captured with good quality and sharpness.
Philippe (11836) 2009-05-23 12:49
Hi, Danos. An excellent perspective with the planks of the wooden pier running to the far end of the picture. The clouds and the building on the right also guide our eyes towards the horizon. There are also good colour contrasts and a nice light.
Have a nice weekend,
barrufeto_77 (28886) 2009-05-23 13:29
I like how this path invites us to the picture. I also love that amazing clouds...well done!
Vasa (16778) 2009-05-23 15:37
Hi Danos, friend,
you use the optimal light for colorful picture. Your idea to present this geometrical play is great. The view concentrates in the middle, in one point. Nice experience from Canada. I am following you with interest. Friendly,
clio (27955) 2009-05-24 1:22
Geia sou Danos,
Very beautiful and long perspective creates by the wood but also the barriers and even the sky.
It gives a big feeling of space and infinity.
Very well done!
jhm (140090) 2009-05-24 4:21
Perfect perspective and depth, the long wooden pier care for an excellent image.
We see the lovely sky, sharpness and clarity are superb.
I like the panorama and the lovely city in background.
Composition and colour are superb. TFS.
Have a nice sunday,
paura (47166) 2009-05-24 5:08
O enquadramento é o ponto "top"de sua fotografia, mostrando em uma fotografia de eficiente profundidade nesse mar de pequenos e grandes barcos. Muito boa.
josepmarin (57829) 2009-05-24 11:22
The perspective that you have obtained in this framing is very deep and dynamic. The light and the colors have a high level of quality and do this photo very attractive at sight.
It is a beautiful composition, with an impeccable technical execution.
Great work, my friend.
patdeph (35748) 2009-05-24 11:30
the perspective is really good and impressive,and the polarized colours are splendid,superbly enhanced by the light!Very well done!
belido (19934) 2009-05-25 7:44
one thing that impress me in your shots is the intense blue sky. I brings all the dramatism that we expect from a scene like that. The strong perspectiva is another great point in the compo. Well done!
plimrn (21344) 2009-05-25 8:35
I love the way you framed the boardwalk centrally, it makes the photo seem like it goes on forever. Lovely red blue contrast and great clouds as well.
When I was comparing your photos from Greece and BC on your homepage; I could almost feel the difference in the temperature. I tried to analyze some of the differences between this 'fishing village' and one in Greece. Two that leap out at me are that this one is more crowded and the docks are wood. I think it's the wood, which reflects less light.
zeca (19762) 2009-05-25 9:19
The framing got excellent depth, also giving a good space to the beautiful texture of this deck. Good work!
ElAprendiz (30) 2009-05-25 9:39
We've seen well-known exploit your stay in the country's north. This photo draws much attention for its depth of field.
The journey of wooden boards, leads us to go with the view to where it ends in a spectacular blue sky. Great frame and balanced composition.
Special greeting from Colombia, John

It must be very nice to visit the restaurant and enjoy this environment. Very good perspective and colors, the clouds adds more interest to this photo too. Well done and Tfs!

The complete absence of people on this wood walk accentuates the depth of the image. The lunch with a table of this restaurant should not be unpleasant. Saturated colors and the lights are beautiful and I appreciate the good clearness of your composition. Pretty glance, well done Danos.
With all my friendships and a very good evening,
Jakab (3867) 2009-05-30 14:30
village? Your wide angle has trasformed it into a metropolis! Thank to the composition using the effect of parallels I see here an endless quay and a huge fleet of boats. The clours are surprisingly vivid.
stego (24030) 2009-06-02 4:20
Great use of the wide angle and colour saturation. It's an image of great visual impact, with its strong perspective effect and the reds, blues and brown producing a beautiful effect.
Angshu (55936) 2009-06-06 9:03
A fine perspective with the wooden pier and the nice contrast with the eye popping red of the bench & the flags, contrasting also with the blue sky. A fine example of a good use of wide angle lens. An informative note as well! Good work!
marietom (34607) 2009-06-12 12:00
Les lignes dans cette composition, qui nous amènent tout au fond, vers ce beau ciel bleu, sont superbes.
Urs (14082) 2009-08-17 9:14
I would name that a perfect double shot, the marina twice as a silhouette. Not to be forgotten the blue sky with the nice cumulus clouds and the great sharpness from A to Z. The restaurant is empty, perhaps to early? Vivid colors and great contrasts. The wooden quay boosts DOF perfectly. Well done
testmaniac (13508) 2009-10-24 6:09
Hi Danos, nice place and very good photo! I like the colors and contrast. Good job!

Dobar dan, odlazi jos jedna nedelja.
Perspektiva od koje se ne odvaja pogled, neka dodju lososi, flota je spremna. Pravi trenutak snimka ove lepe fotografije i drvene platforme koja vodi u nedogled. Mnogo lepo.
Lep vikend, Paja.
gunbud (34066) 2010-04-01 18:55
This image enjoys great depth and splendid clear colors.
Love the rich textures of the long straight boardwalk and those lovely clouds in the vivid blue sky.
Longroute (19396) 2010-08-15 9:32
Another one of your Canandian trip which I had not seen. Probably I was away at the time.
The perspective here is outstanding: everything contributes to create it: the long wooden pontoon with the rail at left and the house at right, the five unbrellas and even the clouds in the sky. A very interesting pictures of a lovely place with a strong and pleasurable light.
Well done and presented,
kordinator (18606) 2011-03-01 0:41
