Continuing with my boat theme, i upload a photo today taken from Vancouver's popular Stanley Park.
Yes, I have posted many photo's from this park, and i will probably continue to do so!
On a clear day or even an overcast day, if the wind is calm and there is no rain, you're guaranteed to have an opportunity to photograph some excellent water reflections.
Driving around the park looking for the best spot, i came across this area. I took many photo's this morning, but i chose to post this one because the brown boat on the far right is my favorite :)
Enjoy your day!

It is indeed a wonderful reflection, and the boats add a great feeling of depth. The buildings look quite cold and clinical, but the little boats bring the warmth back. Very nice, TFS!

Mmmmm...a chocolate boat...yummy!!! :-) That's what it looks like to my chocaholic brain! That brown boat does stand out against all of the white and blue. I like the reflections in the water, too.

High-rises and boats? I remember I had that theme in Hong Kong. Yours is of a cooler kind, both in color and quality:) Fantastic mirror reflection, just like crystal glass. Great job!

Very magnificient reflections on the early morning
Good point of view on the back harbour.

I like this kind of architecture and I also like the soft and subdued colours here. That blue boat works as the real eye-catcher in this picture. It doesn´t have to be red to attract the eyes, as long as it is different...

This is the 50/50 reflection Craig,its funny although a modern town,Vancouver has completely its own character and is easely recotniced,even from the thumbnail ;+]].
a lot of glass in the buildings.
Gigidusud (21247) 2012-05-03 12:06

dta (81604) 2012-05-03 12:29
Hello Craig ,
The reflections of the boats and high buildings are splendid . But I like a lot , too , the soft light and the grey sky and water .
A great capture .

stunning reflection from vancouver haven
ourania (50573) 2012-05-03 13:02
a superb picture! The many elements that compose it are placed so well in the frame that the rich composition breathes and all of them get their fair share of attention. The verical lines of the buildings and masts, extended in the reflections, give a delightful rhythm to the view. The light is managed exquisitely. I love the reflections on the water and on the glass buildings, the view of the boats reposing so quietly on the luminous water, and the lovely brown boat that is striking at the side of the frame. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best,

Tu as choisi le point de vue idéal pour prendre cette magnifique photo. Très jolis édifices modernes au bord de l'eau derrière une superbe marina. Bel éclairage malgré l'absence du soleil et excellent rendu des couleurs. les reflets sont fantastiques.
Merci de partager et toutes mes amitiés,

Encore une magnifique photo des buildings de Vancouver. Les reflets sont vraiment superbes et la lumière très belle. J'aime l'effet d'escalier de l'édifice du milieu.
Bonne fin de semaine Craig,
npecanhuk (77699) 2012-05-03 17:33
Beautiful skyline! Wonderful symmetrical reflections! Great idea for the composition, with the inclusion of that brown boat, contrasting with all the others in blue and green mostly!
I loved it!
TFS - congrats,
emka (105528) 2012-05-03 20:59
Hi Craig, You are lucky to have always some nice views of the boats. Nice shot with good colours and stunning sharpness. I like the brown boat too.
Sonata11 (33971) 2012-05-03 21:56
What a lovely picture. The beautiful architecture, blue sky, boats around and the brown too. All in one we have. An excellent executed image with fabulous colors, sharpness, perfect reflection, clarity, fantastic POV and DOF as well. You posted subsequent beautiful photo. Perfectly well done. I like it a lot. Thanks for sharing.
danos (102500) 2012-05-03 23:32
spectacular the view of this 'corner' of Vancouver with the block of flats as the moored boats too,to reflect on the calmly surface of the sea.I like the light and the colour management of the image as the beauty of the place.
mesutilgim (97184) 2012-05-03 23:36
Very nice mirroring effect from Vancouver.
Nice soft ligth and perfect layout.
TFS and best regards
papagolf21 (108031) 2012-05-04 0:43
Ville verticale ! les immeubles se reflètent avec délectation dans les eaux calmes.
Les bateaux attendent sagement la prochaine sortie.
Un cadrage réalisé avec beaucoup de soin et de méthode.
Une excellente prise de vue.
JFS (32459) 2012-05-04 1:01
Your eyes see every single reflection as well...and very well. The image is impressive with this silver and crhomatic tone. Top quality my friend, as usual.
dkmurphys (63687) 2012-05-04 1:33
Spectacular reflections. I wish I had the opportunity to take pictures like this in my hometown but...Great work, enjoy the weekend.
SnapRJW (31629) 2012-05-04 1:54
Hello Craig - Wonderful light and beautiful reflections ... and I love the little brown boat, it remind me of the "Ugly Duckling". Beautiful cityscape. Warm regards rosemary
Royaldevon (42533) 2012-05-04 2:09
Good Morning Craig,
I feel you are back to your roots, today, filming what you love and whatyou do so well. You have achieved a beautiful clarity which is perfectly repeated in the mirrorlike reflections.
The eye-catching blue boat is strongly positioned in your fine composition.
Have a great day,
Nicou (149788) 2012-05-04 2:18
quelle compo moderne superbe captage et iamge fantastique vue et ensemble ce bâtiments ave les reflets, ces bâteaux une merveille
Bravo et amitié
timecapturer (49288) 2012-05-04 3:48
its "little brown jug!" sorry! Seriously this is one immaculate shot and composition. The clarity and sharpness are phenomenal and at F7.1 is amazing. Love the light which is soft and entrancing. A beautiful shot.
Have an enjoyable weekend - warm wishes - Brian.
Cricri (124848) 2012-05-04 4:35
Belle lumière matinale qui donne de magnifiques reflets , excellent POV et cadrage, très belle réalisation
ikeharel (77217) 2012-05-04 5:15
A magnificent marina view, Craig.
POV chosen allow a marvelous reflection's, and inspite the grey sky - you managed a fine light-green tone mirror on water.
Among all boats, I was searching for your little brown one...
abmdsudi (57176) 2012-05-04 9:52
Lovely water front with impeccable sharpness, color tones & wonderful background. Well detailed throughout on the prominent buildings. The foreground subject and almost mirror water reflection anchor the focus so well and the little touches of bright colors have further added the much impact to the shot, a lot to look at within this limited frame. Great picture. Congrats. Have a good weekend
holmertz (58256) 2012-05-04 11:48
t was generous of you to dedicate this picture to the discreet and not so flashy brown boat which could be easily overlooked among all these exravagant buildings and their reflections.
josepmarin (58359) 2012-05-04 13:15
Hi, my friend Craig,
the photos that you have presented of this park always are very attractive at sight, I'm not tired of to see them.
In this framing you have caught the interesting architecture of the buildings, its reflections on the water of the port, the graphical effect of the boats, which add a nice nautical atmosphere to the ensemble, and a great light as well.
It is a beautiful work.
jjcordier (79297) 2012-05-04 13:15
Magnifique photo, superbement composée, avec une lumière créant des reflets splendides; Une belle harmonie de tons dans cette superbe image.
delpeoples (59684) 2012-05-04 17:13
Love the silvery blue tones that dominate this image and of course the symmetry of those amazing reflections. The contrast of the little brown boat at the end provides a nice break in an otherwise uniform image. Lovely reflections and superb geometry. I like this shot alot. Have you forgotten your "Y" signal for John though? :)
Have a great weekend and thanks for sharing this spectacular shot
ChrisJ (117201) 2012-05-05 3:35
This looks familiar. I saw similar scenes elsewhere in Victoria, & from the Burrard Bridge & the bay at the entrance to Stanley Park. Fantastic reflections with good sharpness & symmetry. Have a great weekend!
Silvio1953 (151627) 2012-05-05 6:18
Ciao Craig, lovely composition with fantastic parade of skyscrapers and boats, fascinating reflections, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio
tyro (26142) 2012-05-05 12:42
Hoi! As Lisa says, where is my Y/N for this one? Now let's see - I think this definitely is HDR. Am I right?
As others have said, this is a beautifully composed shot and one which really makes the very most of those lovely reflections. Like yourself, I have a soft spot for that little brown boat at far right - it's understated and rather cute amongst all the posh pure white ones.
Perfect exposure, lovely lighting and colours and exquisite details and sharpness.
rigoletto (34279) 2012-05-06 11:35
with your photo, i've noticed that, all in these 8 years of my TE membership, it is the first time i am writing to a photo from vancouver!
actally i've always wondered why there are not so many photos being shared from the US or canada...
anyway, great POV with lovely reflections, i especially like how the top of the mid building is bent to the right in its reflection. it is somehow funny :)
baddori (20159) 2012-05-06 23:36
Avere un porto turistica a ridosso della città .
Una grande foto con profondità di campo che riempie la scena esaltandola .
kennyblack (4207) 2012-05-07 9:17
Lovely mirrored building on a slightly choppy sea that created the perfect reflection of that vibration. Very beautiful the boats lined up and beautiful coloring. The picture is perfectly detailed with impressive clarity. Thank you for sharing.
The best regard's, have a nice day. ... Marino
Bluejeans (64251) 2012-05-07 10:07
Ola Craig ,
Magnifico este porto em Vancouver para tirar fotos como esta, ficou lindo o reflexo dos barcos e dos edifícios modernos de fundo , boa simetria de foto , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
patdeph (35748) 2012-05-07 10:45
this is true that these reflections are superb and were worth a picture.And like you, i like the brown boat , alone in all these blue colors all around it, that the cloudy sky and the soft light contribute to give.
jlbrthnn (76039) 2012-05-07 12:40
The photo and the reflections are of high purity. The light and colors are superb. The many details have a great sharpness. Excellent work.
Have a nice day
Robert1969 (7160) 2012-05-07 23:38
A picture with a beautiful balance
(light management and composition are
beautiful). The reflection in the
water is a nice extra, but the little
brown boat steals the show: it has
charm and it is a nice warm break
between the fresh (but also nice) colors.
paololg (31448) 2012-05-09 12:32
Ciao dear Craig,
when a photo is captured with this photographic perfection, there is only one thing to do: make the compliments to the photographer and put the photo among the favorites. Simply marvelous! Bravissimo!
Ciao, have a nice Thursday!

taken from Vancouver s popular Stanley Park
nice point of view with impressive details
and interesting architectural elements
very well framed wth clarity depth
brianmcc (6221) 2012-05-12 18:12
the sharpness and detail you have managed here is incredible. this is another very well thought out composition. all the elements combine perfectly with eaach other. there is a wonderful balance to this image, in the buildings, the boats, and then the reflections. i particularly like the positioning of the blue covered boat to the right side.
siudzi (34141) 2012-05-13 1:32
I've missed that one. Absolutely outstanding shot of this beautiful and interesting place. Like a symmetry in your composition and focus on water reflections. Superb sharpness and exposure achieved. Great work!
Have a nice day!
jmdias (67941) 2012-06-02 16:11
