Small fishing boats sit a few meters from the busy coast road that stretchs between Shoreham-by-sea and Worthing, West Sussex, England. They fish the waters just offshore when the high tide makes it easy to re-launch the little open boats. The fish they catch is then sold, where landed to locals or passing trade on the roadside.

The sun orientation allows the textures of the boat to be highly visible, crating an interesting graphic pattern.
I like the deep red color and the low angle. The light string above the boat makes a very amusing frame to top your composition.
Simple and pleasing.

Une belle photo de ce bâteau coloré. La prise serrée nous permet d'en voir tous les détails.
Merci pour le partage et bonne journée.

Hi Brian, I like the simple composition of the head on approach & the strong red & beautiful blue sky really stand-out, also the excellent light assists the whole shot perfect, kind regards Wilson.

A striking and clear image with this bright red boat. Love the patterns on the hull created by the light and shadow, and the various textures created with the pebbles and wood. The detail of the string of little light bulbs on the top completes the shot and helps to frame the boat.

Beautiful close-up of the boat next to the street. Good shot and great colors.
Very interesting the contents of your note.

Unusual shot, well composed and probably cropped close, to good effect. I like the way it seems to fill the frame but you can still see the houses behind - and very English they are, too. I wasn't sure about the string of lights at the top, but now I like them - another whimsical aspect of the picture. Great colours in your excellent exposure.

Lovely and beautiful picture!
I love all those saturated colors!
I really enjoyed its vertical format, black & white borders, level of sharpness, exposure, chosen low pov and, of course, above all, composition!
In addition to the boat and many other details, I really liked those wires with small lamps on top of this image!
TFS - congrats,

Very well seen, and a beautiful and cheery composition. The textures of the boat, and the wonderful red and the blue trim, are rich and vibrant, yet not overdone! The rust colored roofs, the blue sky and the great clouds all add up to a wonderful photo! Excellent low point of view. Very pleasing and striking! Warm regards,

One more time , a good job!
Colors, framing, sharpness...
A beautiful shot.
macjake (54028) 2011-05-12 15:10
I'm glad you added the flowing lights at the top of the frame, as it gives purpose to the tall empty blue space above.
love the colors, the strong lines and shadows.
interesting too how the clouds appear just above the boatline.

Wonderful shot, a very picturesque scene. Red makes it all incredible. Good work, have a great weekend.

Wonderful tight shot of this colourful boat with the low lying puffy clouds. Good clarity in the foreground and throughout. A simple photo elevated by the perfect execution!
