A fisherman working on his nets while standing in his boat in the harbour of Ayia Marina. Fishing is one of the major professions of the inhabitants of Leros but there are hundreds of amateur fishermen too.
The harbour of Ayia Marina is blessed with a delicious warm light on sunny afternoons. I believe that this liquid picture says something about the pretty harbour of Ayia Marina.
Decoding (I wish I could write it upside down too:)
The fisherman is wearing a red jumper and black trousers, the grey area on the right is the boat's window and the dark area on the left is his shadow.
Thank you for visiting, a lovely weekend to all

Hello dear Ourania,
I like the splash of red contrasting against the dominant blue tones to give a superb warm cold color contrast in this tightly framed almost abstract shot. Punchy light contrasts with good saturation and graphic elements. Tfs & have a great weekend!

I see him, colourful, distorted, wavy with abstract patterns.
Well spotted and managed.

Splendidi riflessi colorati, una vera pittura astratta. Mi piace molto!
Ti auguro un buon fine settimana amica.
carlo62 (34380) 2014-02-07 16:01
questo deve essere il particolare del riflesso di qualche giorno fa, non mi sbagliavo, da solo è ancor più bello.
Quel rosso contornato di nero in alto a destra, è fantastico, un vero capolavoro.

Hi Ourania Dear Friend
This image is too saturated in color, rich and charm of the image is added. Exposure to the best possible done a good reflection of everyday life in the sea area of the display.
Thanks for sharing
batalay (35791) 2014-02-07 20:03
You've framed the area perfectly to create a superb abstract painting. The colors and resolution are extraordinary. I am confident that this photo will draw the attention it so rightly deserves.

Although you say this reflection is that of a fisherman the beauty of the shot is in the dynamic, dancing colours, wonderful contrasts and clarity of the image.
A super shot Ourania.
Have a fine weekend Rosemary

uno dei tuoi sogggetti preferiti inserito come al solito in una composizione di grande effetto.
Colpisce come sempre la saturazione dei colori che aiutano a disegnare figure astratte di grande e particolare efficacia.
Ciao e buon fine settimana
dkmurphys (50144) 2014-02-08 3:50
Spectacular reflections, wonderful artistic detail. Well taken, have a fine weekend.
snunney (85543) 2014-02-08 4:55
A fine capture of this pleasantly lit reflection. Your commentary is useful, but the composition stands well on its own as an abstract image. An excellent study in light and colour. Thanks for sharing.
mohammad_H (9530) 2014-02-08 6:30
Like a painting Reflection in water Various colored lines and shapes, created waves of water, so beautiful
jhm (140585) 2014-02-08 6:58
I think not that we would see a lot difference when we turning the picture.
This is really a nice modern painting with colourfully elements
I am a regular visitor to museums, only the difference is sometimes very great.
Sharpness and clarity are excellent.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

εντυπωσιακές οι αντανακλάσεις στην επιφάνεια της θάλασσας,ιδιαίτερα με το κόκκινο να κάνει την τέλεια αντίθεση με το μπλε.Ένας όμορφος 'πίνακας' με εντυπωσιακά χρώματα και φως.

saxo042 (37588) 2014-02-09 1:23
Floating colours like an aquarelle painting. A real work of art with a nicely balanced composition. Excellent!
abmdsudi (44238) 2014-02-09 6:53
A lovely straight crop showing the distorted reflections creating superb abstract effect and this makes for a striking image boosted by good colour saturation, brightness and contrast. Full of abstract fun and beauty, Congrats
holmertz (42235) 2014-02-09 7:32
Obviously the same reflections as in an earlier photo, but water changes quickly so the composition is already a bit different. Since you this time also cropped the upper part it has become more difficult to identify, so your explanation was needed. Especially I like the red pattern in the upper right corner and the white lines inside the red areas.
jcpix (13704) 2014-02-09 15:07
Haha, I see you've tempted fate and gone with the full reflection. :) Well, to state the obvious...it worked, and is still here! Although you had already provided a preview and a description of the scene, this is just as impressive. I can't get enough of the smooth finish you've executed, and if I didn't know any better, parts of this abstract look like a melted candle.
The rich blues and warm sunlight play right into the atmosphere which you wanted to convey, it's just gorgeous. Even as I'm looking at a still photograph, I'm half expecting the ripples to shift and alter the appearance, much like clouds in the sky creating a new image over and over. I really like what possibilities there are for the imagination...let in run free. :) Have a wonderful week ahead.
Didi (57482) 2014-03-03 10:24
Je préfère celle ci par rapport à la composition précédente du même sujet
Le crop permet de bien se concentrée sur les reflets
