Ciao caro Luciano,
WOW! What an amazingly dramatic shot! I can understand why this approaching storm sent everyone back to shore!
The row of boats with their tall and colourful sails is perfectly depicted against a very moody and threatening sky. The light on the boats and their sails is delightful and makes them stand out perfectly against their darker background.
Well composed, perfectly exposed and with superb colours, details and sharpness.
ACL1978 (7467) 2014-03-01 16:46
Beautiful work here, Luciano - one might have been tempted to focus more closely on the boats themselves, but I think presenting a wider view and taking in the cloudy sky works nicely. The sails of these boats now act as a bright counterweight, as well as a strong pattern. Thanks!
npecanhuk (60192) 2014-03-01 17:19
Special regards to the exposure, colors and composition!
You were at the right place, at the right moment and, of course, did the best photo job!
TFS - congrats,
kabel (1541) 2014-03-01 18:21
Hello, gorgeous photograph. Look at that sky! The composition is superb.
Wonderful scene to be a part of and what a great memory for you,
cebe (1477) 2014-03-01 20:14
Nice vacations photo based on the repetition of this colourful pattern under that beautiful and somewhat dramatic sky. Pretty contrasting light on the boats. I can't decide if it's bad luck or good luck that the first boat has a different colour; I guess both are as ok. "Trou aux biches" is a surprising name!
Kind regards, Claude
Corry (4506) 2014-03-01 20:27
Très belle photo de ces bateaux à voile alignés sur la plage sous ce gros nuage menaçant. Belles couleurs contrastantes. Belles composition. Salutations.
PaulVDV (20233) 2014-03-01 22:23
The white sails with their coloured side and top, all neatly on a row, make a very attractive sight.
However the most powerful element on this picture is that threatening tropical sky. This while at the same time the beach enjoys the full sunlight.
Best regards, Paul
jjcordier (72640) 2014-03-01 22:24
Excellente composition exploitant parfaitement ces voiliers sagement alignés sous ce ciel très nuageux. Jolie lumière.
jemaflor (80000) 2014-03-01 23:19
Bel alignement avec ces catamarans et bon contraste ente la luminosité sur la plage et ce ciel gris très menaçant, bien pris.
siudzi (31789) 2014-03-01 23:37
What an interesting scene you have photographed! The dark cloudy sky created a fantastic background for the sailing school meeting and I hope they had some fun with that weather:) Excellent capture! Very well done.
Have a nice Sunday!
fabbs99 (15675) 2014-03-01 23:40
Nice colorful composition of the sailing line-up.Sharp and crisp image.Very well composed photo with excellent vivid colors. TFS.
annjackman (17541) 2014-03-01 23:48
This is most atmospheric with its stormy light. The row of colourful sails really stand out. Expertly taken - very well done.
Kind Regards, Ann
SWEETFREEDOM (21544) 2014-03-01 23:56
il cielo ed i colori in generale sono bellissimi. bella la fila di barche in primo piano.
jurek1951 (40949) 2014-03-02 0:16
a picturesque view with spectacular composition and amazing lights, the POV is very nice, great atmosphere,
SnapRJW (28909) 2014-03-02 0:31
Good Morning dear Luciano - What a fine composition. I love the way you have given so much space to the wonderfully moody sky as it makes a superb backdrop to the line of dinghies. The row of boats is nicely positioned each overlapping the one before it in a neat line, the yellow sail ideally placed at the start of the line.
A most attractive image.
Have a good Sunday Rosemary
CLODO (28622) 2014-03-02 1:00
Les gros nuages sont un gage de vent, donc il est temps d'appareiller sur les catamarans bien rangés après les dernières consignes.
carlo62 (26884) 2014-03-02 1:35
bel contrasto tra le barche colorate e il cielo sormontato da nuvoloni neri ( non bastano i nostri???)
Mi piace come hai composto l'immagine, dando molto spazio a queste nuvole e dividendo in parti eque barche e verde.
Buona domenica, spero asciutta....
Romano46 (16578) 2014-03-02 1:37
in questa ci sono tutti gli elementi che più mi piacciono: il cielo tempestoso, la luce brillante, i colori vivaci ed una composizione di grande effetto.
Mi stupisce che ancora la tenessi nel cassetto.
Complimenti!. E' proprio bella.
Ciao e buona domenica
saxo042 (36712) 2014-03-02 1:42
A very regular line of sails here, with one of them in a deviating colours. This provides a fine tension in the picture. the impressive clouds are also well captured. A very attractive view here!
yquem46 (38378) 2014-03-02 1:43
Une superbe image que cet alignement de voiles de toutes les couleurs sous un ciel majestueux
bon we, amicalement
tenretin (2211) 2014-03-02 2:02
Beautiful sky and in addition you were there at the right time. This is a beautiful photo, well composed and well documented. Congratulations!.
Thank you for sharing and good Sunday.
Gigidusud (13161) 2014-03-02 2:04
Magnifique alignement de ces voiles colorées dans le ciel gris. Une belle lumière et une grande profondeur d'image. Parfait comme d'habitude!
ikeharel (51495) 2014-03-02 2:09
Chosen POV was super, side to the green lawn on right, and sea on left.
Sponsored by Club-Med, one in yellow (instructor's?), and the rest with orange/white sails, nicely placed ashore in juxtaposition, those boats are in great contrast to the grey clouds aloft.
Beautiful location, nice to include sailing-students.
papagolf21 (82978) 2014-03-02 2:15
Bonjour, cher ami Luciano,
Encore une image qui fait rêver, tant mieux !
De plus, la beauté de l'image est réelle.
Une composition très réussie.
Nicou (115336) 2014-03-02 2:16
quel alignement de voile de couleur et blanche superbe sur cette plage et la perspective le tout avec ce sueprbe ciel quelle compo merveilleux.
Bravo et belle journée
Subhogen (4063) 2014-03-02 2:26
Wow! what a fantastic shot with the row of sail boats. The dramatic sky presents a fantastic backdrop for the the colourful boats and the sailors. Great composition, love the depth and perspective achieved by the row of boats and the length of the beach. Excellent work, thanks for sharing.
dip (23512) 2014-03-02 2:34
the scene is indeed a challenge to take a photo,
rich in interesting details,colorful and photogenic, and you captured it perfectly!
ourania (25532) 2014-03-02 3:07
hai catturato le nuvole, il cielo minaccioso e l' atmosfera incerta ed intensa meravigliosamente. Tessiture e tonalita' nel cielo sono ricchissime ed allo stesso tempo la scena sulla spiaggia e' perfettamente nitida, profonda e chiara. Illuminazione e colori mostrano qualita' straordinarie. Credo che anche gli alievi di vela stiano incerti ed affascinanti in questa scena. La loro lezione e' ricordata in modo davvero poetico. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona domenica,
Silvio1953 (115145) 2014-03-02 3:53
Ciao Luciano, gran bella parata di vele, magnifici colori, favoloso il cielo, bravissimo, ciao Silvio
timecapturer (44469) 2014-03-02 3:59
love this! Such a perfectly composed and presented image. A big sky to add to the effect and lots of enticing symmetry and colours to top it all of so beautifully. Awesome!
Enjoy your Sunday - B.

Interesantan tekst o mestu i trenutku ...
Lep pogled ...
Dobar trenutak snimka, ostrina, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto sa takmicarima i oblake koji donose kisu, lepe boje.
Dobra kompozicija, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Lepo popodne i sve najbolje.
An interesting article on the place and time ...
Nice view ...
Good time recording, sharpness, contrast and perspective, nice place shown with competitors and the clouds that bring rain, beautiful colors.
Good composition, well captured moment.
Nice afternoon and all the best.
cornejo (27465) 2014-03-02 4:50
Ciao Luciano, molto buona immagine con grande prospettiva di questa composizione interessante, molto ben catturata in questa bella immagine con una buona nitidezza, profondità, luce e colore. Lavoro eccellente e interessante ben fatto, complimenti amico mio. Grazie per la condivisione di questo bel lavoro.
Buona sera e felice inizio di settimana.
Cordiali saluti dal sud della Spagna.
dta (62392) 2014-03-02 5:19
Ciao Luciano ,
Ces voiliers bien rangés constituent un excellent sujet . Avec ce ciel magnifique(pour moi qui adore les nuages , c'est un régal) , la composition est formidable , dans un format original et bien choisi .
Noel_Byrne (20105) 2014-03-02 5:28
The combination of bright direct sunlight and the darkness of the approaching storm is really striking, and I guess these people were looking at the light and hoping for the best. That sky does not look like one to hope against though! You create a very interesting scene here, the boats making superb lines of depth, and beautiful colors on them too.
Thanks as always
Sergiom (53793) 2014-03-02 5:35
Je ne suis pas certain que je tenterais ma chance en voilier avec le temps couvert qui arrive avec ses vents capricieux. J'aime beaucoup la lumière sur les voiles colorées et la belle ligne de fuite dans l'image.
mirosu (12288) 2014-03-02 5:37
I like very much how you have isolated this beautiful sailing boats in a grand and rewarding vertical frame. You have offered us lovely, clear details in superb light. Your composition is nicely balanced and has an interesting and delightful cloudy sky backdrop. The light has a very agreeable consistency, the colours are well balanced. I especially like the effect of the strong contrasts against darker sky.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice Sunday.
Kamilutka (8085) 2014-03-02 6:26
amazing sky with its darker clouds provided very pretty and contrasting background for this scene. I like your POV which allows to see the sails standing in the neat row almost like soldiers :-) The group of people placed very discreetly adds some human element to the composition. Very nicely saturated colors and superb light.
Enjoy your Sunday
emilbo (22256) 2014-03-02 8:34
Très jolie photo et le bel éclairage sous un ciel menaçant qui met bien valeur ces petits voiliers prêts à prendre la mer. Une belle présentation avec tous ces gens qui vont jouir du plaisir de la voile. Encore plus beau en grand.
Toutes mes amitiés et merci de ta visite,
jmdias (51983) 2014-03-02 9:45
a very nice photo and an excellent opportunity you didn't lost. nice this row of boats and the stormy clouds around. the light is amazing. TFS.
claudeD (30141) 2014-03-02 9:47
I like this wonderful beach picture very much. Excellent composition and perfect fresh colors and sharpness. really-masterpiece of photogrphie. TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
holmertz (36451) 2014-03-02 9:53
This is an astonishing view of the line of sails underneath a very impressive cloud. The colours are strong, but thanks to the hidden sun they have become pleasantly mild. The teacher and students look strangely ignorant of the approaching bad weather. Didn't anyone get the idea to look at the sky?
ciakgiak (30405) 2014-03-02 11:55
davvero difficile trovare le parole giuste per descrivere una simile bellezza!!!!
E ti giuro sono sincero: vele collocate in maniera perfetta, bellissima luce ed un cielo da sballo!!!! Bravissimo!!!
jcpix (11044) 2014-03-02 12:57
Well, at least someone got good use out of the approaching storm...you! :) What a captivating shot, you can really sense the drama from the heavy skies over this setting. The darker clouds also make for some superb contrast against the colorful trim of the sails and green grass. You were certainly in the right spot at the right time to capture this line up of boats and "impending doom," everything has come together perfectly to complete an impressive picture. No wonder this has been so popular, a terrific shot! Have a good week ahead. All the best.
COSTANTINO (50693) 2014-03-02 14:05
Bella scena delle barche di vela in serie
ottimi colori e bel POV
Complimenti e cari saluti
pierrefonds (54610) 2014-03-02 17:19
La distance entre la plage et l'horizon donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs des catamarans. La bonne luminosité valorise les couleurs de l'image. Bonne soirée.
elenimavrandoni (14197) 2014-03-02 19:23
Luciano, I am very impressed by this very exotic place that you presenting so beautifully in your series from a fantastic journey I'm sure...this is what vacation is all about....
thanks for sharing!
rychem (18869) 2014-03-02 19:50
Splendid photo, this is like a painting with different areas: sunny beach with colorful sails and the dramatic sky, compliments
SimoAle (618) 2014-03-03 8:00
questa è una foto alla "Romano" con il cielo in tempesta ed il mare! Ottima luce e bellissimi i colori, una composizione invidiabile e degna delle tue mani e del tuo occhio!
Tanto gelosia io che ultimamente ne azzecco poche..
Royaldevon (25898) 2014-03-03 9:50
Ha! Ha! Luciano, The clouds were a problem for the sailors but were great for adding atmosphere to your shot!
A lovely composition, with the repeating sails guiding naturally into the scene. The gathered students make a colourful focal point but the impending storm is what we all focus upon!!
My warm regards,
mesutilgim (79394) 2014-03-03 14:23
Hello dear Luciano,
What an amazing capture from Mauritius with this nice sailboats on a row.
Very nice light and nice soft pastell colors.
TFS and best regards
jacquest (18095) 2014-03-03 14:38
The menacing sky gives a dramatic mood to this composition. I like the alignment of the sailboats giving deepness to the image. The special light enhances the colors and the sharpnessis very good.
pili51 (739) 2014-03-03 14:56
foto straordinaria, bellissimo l'effetto grafico che viene fuori da questa prospettiva molto schiacciata, una foto davvero elegante con colori bellissimi!
Difficile riportare ogni minimo dettaglio alla perfezione come hai fatto tu!
Bravissima e complimenti.
Un caro saluto, Pili

krzychu30 (15260) 2014-03-05 1:56
magnificent scene and superb PP work here!
This row of small,colorful boats stand out so beautifully against dramatic sky,which your treatment makes look really fabulous and moody.
And also the small green area adds so much to the scene and animates it.
Well done my friend!
Have a nice day
mvdisco (17634) 2014-03-05 11:27
Ciao Luciano, Bonjour,
Magnifique composition et présentation,
Je pense qu'on a attendu une percée de Soleil pour cette jolie photo sous un ciel nuageux!..
Belle lumière et perpective .
macjake (51418) 2014-03-05 21:53
i'm surprised i missed this one...sorry about that :)
I've said it a million times, and i'll say it again...clouds make all the difference in a photo!!!
what an impact the clouds have here.
powerful yet not overpowering.
love the line of sails and their funny colors.
shreya2000 (779) 2014-03-06 0:19
A very good picture. I like the line of the boats as well as the clouds which looks so below. The clarity is good.
Fis2 (81530) 2014-03-06 1:47
Curious photo, good perspective.
Colors suitable climate picture.
I like POV and composition.
Have a nice day
mayjayne (2942) 2014-03-06 3:29
The darkened clouds form such a formidable backdrop for the delicately coloured sailboats. A very impressive composition !
adramad (34939) 2014-03-06 7:48
Great image with all these sailboats, perfectly aligned, their colorful sails contrasts with the splendid sky, very menacing black clouds, all the guys gathered around them give a good vital touch to the picture.
Very good brightness and sharpness, with beautiful colors.
Well seen and done better. I Like
Have a good day.

kato (11630) 2014-03-08 1:47
You're capturing well this scene by a good composition and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the sailing boats the mast of the simple design. Here looks like a place surrounded the good environment of sea, beach and greenery. It's a good training for students of sailing school. And, the heavy cloud in the sky draws out a strong impact.
daddo (22372) 2014-03-08 4:09
Ciao Luciano. A highly artistic composition with its colourful diagonal of sails against a dark background. dramatic sky, excellent light and details. Bravissimo lavoro.Complimenti. Klaudio.
Cricri (100367) 2014-03-08 11:13
Que dire après toutes ces belles critiques, tout me plait, les couleurs, la perspective des bateaux a voiles, et puis ce ciel magnifique qui filtre une merveilleuse lumière, c'est très beau, le nom de la région me fait sourire :-)
ChrisJ (94426) 2014-03-08 11:14
Nice repetition of the boats with the fg lemon yellow sail standing out from the orange sails and nicely breaking the pattern. Good sharpness with a lovely summery feel. 3-6c here in Turkey and overcast. Missing this warm sunny weather! Tfs!
Didi (54667) 2014-03-09 1:52
Je parie qu'il y a plein de biches par ici
Un cadrage magnifique de ces voiles sous ce ciel presque orageux
Une belle luminosité ambiante
fds (7240) 2014-03-09 12:34
ciao luciano splendida visione che come al solito hai saputo tirar fuori da questa semplice immagine con le barchette a vela in primo piano e quei nuvoloni neri molto suggestivi sopra
come al solito grandi colori e grande definizione caro amico
emka (72278) 2014-03-10 14:17
Ciao Luciano, Beautiful picture from MAuritius. How you like all these beaches! Very nice this row of the sails and very impressive cloud before the storm. looks quite dramatic. You had to go quicly to find a shalter.

Strepitosa composizione con le imbarcazioni allineate in una bella prospettiva, posizionate a margine del quadro in basso in modo da dare spazio al meraviglioso cielo grigio! Fantastica!!! Da maestro ormai straconfermato!!!
marina7 (8049) 2014-03-13 10:07
Excellent picture, Luciano! The sails and clouds aligned and parading:) Great's the way you composed it.
Thanks and all the best!

Kielia (22913) 2014-03-14 8:20
an excellently composed mage with the boats as an important feature! You are presenting a fascinating impression of this event under the threatening sky. The perspective is excellent and I also enjoyed reading the notes. My compliments!
josepmarin (57465) 2014-03-17 3:36
espléndida perspectiva de los barcos y sus velas, que dan una bonita profundidad a la imagen, y precioso cielo nublado, poderoso visualmente y amenazando con lluvia, con los que has creado un contraste gráfico magnífico.
La estructura de los elementos en la composición y el eficaz encuadre, proporcionan una alta calidad a tu foto.
Excelente trabajo, caro amico.
nikkitta (12788) 2014-03-17 15:13
Can I add another comment at this great capture?Instruction to go sailing with this menacing sky?
Like your conposition with true colors of the row of colorfull boat sails in the midle of grey sky and sea
Well seen, buona settimana
Miguel82 (19405) 2014-03-18 9:46
Sailboards on the famous beach of Trou aux Biches "hind's hole", perfect sharpness as usual, heavy clouds annoucing clearly rain, I know the logo! the students are listening carefully the teacher I see, that's great!
all the best, greetings
fotka (3183) 2014-03-21 6:25
The most I like of this photo is composition of repeating sails. The dark sky made fantastic background to this shot. The quality of photo is remarkable well captured.
Have a nice weekend,
bartekp (4746) 2014-03-26 14:40
Perfect shot, superb composition and those colors.
Have a nice evening!
Robert1969 (6832) 2014-03-27 2:23
Excellent point of view and composition:
the diagonal line(s) of the sailboats
creates a nice depth and the open space
arround makes the picture nice calmness.
The clouds is the sky is a nice extra.
kwekwekan (1028) 2014-03-28 8:19
Great composition to show off the approaching storm. The vantage point is also very well chosen with the row of boats following a nice curved line into the depth of the image. Good clarity, brightness and contrasts.
adores (33936) 2014-03-29 15:39
A good moment of light and a magnificent sky! The colourful sails in diagonal surely make a nice composition. Good shot, with a good PP!
Angshu (54513) 2014-03-31 2:27
Lovely repetition of sails, their colours contrasting well with the blue sky. The dark cumulus clouds look great as a backdrop. A fine picture, with a dramatic environment, with fine details and clarity...excellent!
