Good Morning Everyone,
This scene, of boats at rest, was taken at Roscoff, a few hours before we took the ferry back to Plymouth.
WE only usually drive to the port and straight onto the ferry but this day, we had time to explore the town. I'm so glad we did, for Roscoff is a pretty town, something you don't experience from the ferry port. It has charming buildings, many old and full of character, as well as a wealth of shops and good eating places. Where better to eat fresh fish!!
Have a lovely day,

Picture perfect, Bev.
Wonderfully shot and framed.

a real sense of tranquillity in this fine image. This little haven is so picturesque although it is a long time since my last visit. It reminds me a little of my hometown with boats bobbing and classic reflections. Executed perfectly and presented attractively.

A well framed image, the eyes drift into the scene and are coaxed gradually up the frame via the moored boats toward the quayside houses. The light is excellent and the colours and reflections very agreeable. Thanks for sharing, et bonne journée.

It's imaginative to present all of the shimmering reflections of the sailboat's mast. The Impressionists would have loved seeing those colors in the water. The scene resonates with calmness and serenity.

this is a little bit unusual composition and I like the idea very much. Normally the boats are placed in the foreground while you kept them all on the second plan giving so much space to the sea. Very original effect supported by the vertical format.
The reflection on the water adds to the less busy lower part and the row of houses frame the image nicely at the top.
Very pretty and well managed light, great colors and sharpness.
Well done and TFS

Nice peaceful scene here. I don't know Roscoff as Portsmouth ferries don't go there, and the only time we stopped there was on the Santander ferry, and we didn't even have time for a run ashore. Good reflection.

Such lovely and beautiful details!
A very attractive and pleasant-looking picture!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, vertical format, chosen pov and composition are all excellent and I truly enjoyed them all!
TFS - congrats,

Boats at Rest, but a nice little bit moving in water through the wind, we see nice the wooden mast as reflection in water.
Technical a wonderful picture, this gives a quiet feeling.
Very well composition, light and colours are excellent taken.
Nice done, TFS.

J'aime beaucoup l'espace laissé au mât du voilier qui se reflète dans l'eau à l'avant plan.Le cadrage vertical aide beaucoup pour cet effet. La lumière en diagonale fait briller le blanc des bateaux.

une photo charmante, des couleurs et une lumière très agréables et un POV qui donne une belle profondeur à l'image. Bien vu.
amaryllis (35597) 2014-02-18 6:19
ton cadrage est superbe, bien réalisée avec le mat en reflet de ce bateau et de la coque et cela forme comme une pointe
les maisons en arrière plan bien cadrées, une photo de qualité

Good evening Beverly,
Placed a vertical POV over the marina in view, that's allow you to show a marvelous sight in depth and as a bonus collected a fine reflection of the mast in FG.
Superbly allocated pic. space, left enough sky-space above the roof-tops on far. Light and colors, and a clear view beautifully applied.

la bellezza della foto sta essenzialmente nel taglio particolarmente indovinato che crea un perfetto equilibrio tra la terra sullo sfondo e la presenza dell'acqua, i suoi colori ed i riflessi in primo piano.
Ottima la nitidezza e gradevolissimi i colori.
Ciao e buona serata

This is a great view. The boats and buoys are so nicely spread out in the bay with the neat village in the background.The nearest mast is beautifully reflected and gets a well deserved large part of the composition.

Hi Bev, I like this great photo of this beautiful composition with boats and interesting town in the background, very well captured in this beautiful image with good sharpness, depth, light and beautiful color. Very good and interesting job well done, congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.
Good night and happy week.
Best wishes from southern Spain.

Belle prise de vue de ces bateaux ancrés avec le reflet du mât dans l'eau. Bon cadrage et belle lumière. Bien fait.
SnapRJW (31625) 2014-02-18 22:11
Hi Bev - Your determination to include the full length of the reflected mast has resulted in an unusual and most attractive composition. I like it very much, the balance works well and what really impresses me is the way you have captured the brighter light on the little boat and its yellow mast. This has the effect of pulling it free from the busier backdrop. Super! Warm regards Rosemary

superbe ensemble de ces bâteaux blanc quelle vue avec le bleu de l'eau et le premeir avec le reflet du mât brun sur le plan d'eau sueprbe.
Merci et bonne journée

Attractive scene from the port. I like the vertical choice, well taken.
carlo62 (37978) 2014-02-19 5:43
splendido taglio verticale, con la barca in primo piano e il suo bel riflesso a fare da apripista a tutta la panoramica.
Una bella realizzazione, la tranquillità del luogo traspare dalla foto ed è piacevole rimanere a osservare l'immagine.

You had a good idea to visit Roscoff before taking the ferry. The town and its area is one of my favourite place in Brittany, you have wonderful white sand beaches to the west in particular. You had a nice light to take this photo of Roscoff port. Maybe not enough space in the top of the picture I think.
Thanks for sharing,
Cricri (110607) 2014-02-21 3:14
Très joli l'utilisation des reflets mis en avant plan du premier bateau accentuant la profondeur, la vue sur les maisons, la lumière et les couleurs sont plus que agréable

This is very beautiful and elegant capture. Like the layout of this composition with well placed and executed long water reflection of the boat. Artistic work. TFS!
Have a nice weekend!
COSTANTINO (59247) 2014-02-22 12:31
the title could be as amazing blue
I liked this scenery with the boats
at rest and the whole atmosphere
a real sense of tranquility
have a pleasant Sunday
macjake (60564) 2014-02-23 18:30
good idea to have the hint of homes at the top :)
you squeezed them in nicely haha
and is that a colorful clothes line in the far bg?
its always fun when you get one of these long sails masts in the water reflection isn't it? its like having a 2nd piece of chocolate cake :)
for obvious reasons, a very charming and elegant scene you've produced, really enjoy it.

Very good point of view with a deep vertical foreground.
I know very well this place
In a gourmet harbor restaurant, I stay shocked to see a couple of English order hamburgers for dinner
ourania (35832) 2014-03-01 6:59
a very original and charming composition. I like very much your bold idea to present the harbor and the town in the upper part of the vertical frame, leaving so much space to the sea and the vibrant, orange reflection of the mast. The reflection echoes the lovely sunshine and brightens the foreground. The upper part is delightfully busy, your framing gave great balance to the group of mooring boats. You managed the contrast effectively and the colours are wonderful. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely month,
elenimavrandoni (14209) 2014-03-02 19:50
Bev, I find your composition simply beautiful!!
Joy and thrill to my eyes anything that has to do with the sea and you have managed to make me dream of my next vacation!!
thanks for visiting me, kind regards!
