It is possible to get a boat from Amalfi town to the Isle of Capri, and this is the last view of Amalfi town seen here. The hillsides are covered in vineyards and the local white wine is not bad at all and a little cheaper than imported wines from elsewhere. A glass or 2 with fresh pizza or pasta watching the sunset is a great way to spend an evening!

C'est une région que je n'ai pas encore eu le plaisir de visiter en Italie. Le point de vue est superbe et le regard suit le sillon du bateau dans l'eau vers la ville qui brille sous le soleil. Les montagnes sont impressionnantes.

It's a magical town alright, one of my favourites on the Amalfi Coast, if even a little too touristic these days. Beautiful vivid colours and contrasts. You did well in the harsh sun to get this kind of definition and richness of colour.
PS: It's called Positano - there's no "r". It's also not part of the province of Naples, it's part of Salerno.

This seaside village looks like part of the mountain, I like the architectures and the way they blend in. Good lighting and sharp details. Well done, tfs.

The mountains are framing well the small town. The distance between the boat and the town is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details, the colors of the nountains and of the town. The good luminosity is bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

very nice POV with great depth of field and very good contrast.
The scum of the boat still gives more relief to the image.

Your selected point of view reveals all the beauty of the Positano Bay set in a wonderful and very scenic location. The view is just fabulous with the impressive mountains in the BG giving depth to the photo. The image is sharp, bright and detailed, and you managed the strong sunlight perfectly. Very well done.
macjake (66604) 2013-10-15 12:17
well, no matter how you spell it, i like it :)
For being as far back as you are in this scene, the amount of detail and sharpness is excellent.
love the overall light, and the rocky hillsides.
thanks for your WS on my Warsaw photo. nice to see a different view.

Clear, clean and colorful landscape. All in focus.
I saw Positano in a film some years ago.
PaulVDV (27854) 2013-10-15 17:24
This is the first time that I get a view of Positano of the sea. It looks extremely beautiful as always but this original POV is a very nice surprise to me.
The wonderful coastline is shown beautifully and I specially like that view of the buildings on the steep mountain slopes on the middle of the picture.
The wake of your boat adds more depth to the image.
Best regards, Paul

Très bonne photo de Positano. La vue depuis la mer permet d'apprécier la beauté de la ville et de son superbe environnement montagneux.

A great one showing the town from sea to mountains and with good depth of field despite being taken from a boat.

Hello Chris - Your note is a fabulous invitation to visit this location and your shot shows off some of the delights of the place really well. A wonderful clean shot with the very finest of detail. A real pleasure to view this and take in all that it shows. Warm regards Rosemary

Most beautiful view of the rocky terrain and rough seashore, taken from the boat, Chris.
Exquisite clear shot, show well the town houses, bridge and churchs, its green forst backfrop and great blue sea.
Natural colors superbly collected.

I have been at the port eating pizza with..beer, sorry and enjoying the view of the sea, now I can enjoy Positano from the sea with a good POV given by the wake of the boat
From that distance we can watch not only all the village ( see the tower of the cathedral) but the mountains and the vegetation
Charming capture of a charming village
Quite agree with you about people from Cambodia
npecanhuk (74462) 2013-10-20 16:58
A wonderful pov for that magnificent spot!
Sharpness, exposure, colors, contrasts, horizontal format and composition are all excellent photo qualities as well!
TFS - congrats,

this is a place of striking beauty, the view you are offering us from the sea is marvellous. I love how the mountains and the town are framed by two delightful shades of blue that set them off so effectively. There's a great deal of interesting details to enjoy and the natural textures make the picture very vivid. The light and the colours are wonderful and the wake evokes a feeling of sadness at leaving this beautiful place. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
