La Barceloneta is a neighborhood in the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona. The neighborhood was constructed during the 18th century for the residents of the Ribera neighborhood who had been displaced by the construction of the Ciudadela of Barcelona. The neighborhood is roughly triangular, bordered by the Mediterranean Sea, the Moll d'Espanya of Port Vell, and the El Born neighborhood. The neighborhood is serviced by its own stop on the Barcelona Metro. Torre Sant Sebastià is the terminus of the Port Vell Aerial Tramway; opened in 1931, it connects La Barceloneta with Montjuïc across Port Vell.
La Barceloneta's beach gained notoriety as "the best urban beach in the world" and overall "third best beach in the world", according 2005 Travel Channel show Worlds Best Beaches.
La Barceloneta is known for its sandy beach (which made an appearance in Don Quixote, book 2) and its many restaurants and nightclubs along the boardwalk. Over the past several years the quality of the sand on the beach has become a source of continued controversy. In February 2008, the World Health Organisation began an inquiry designed to ascertain whether the sand meets WHO beach health and safety guidelines.

This is a graphically interesting composition with those large yellow squares (it dosn't really matter that I don't know what they are) standing on the brown regularly shaped areas and contrasting with the dark blue clouds. The weak evening light gives the yellow parts an even bigger significance than they would have had in bright sunshine.

this is photo-graphics of the very best kind. Sharp contradiction of sky, dark sand and a wall colour that might have been torn off some US american barracks anywhere in Europe.

un très bonne photo, d'un graphisme coloré et créatif.
Bravo, c'est bien vu!

il bel taglio verticale aggiunge molto blu del cielo ed il giallo delle pareti risalta ancora di più.
Mi piace la presenza delle persone, anche se appena accennato.

Superbe le contraste des couleurs et l'ouverture des panneaux sur la mer, bien vu et surtout bien réaliser

this is something we'd usually see from Manuel or Ra.
wonderful minimalist type of production.
simple lines and colors make for a beautifully attractive and unique beach scene.

This very well-composed image looks almost surreal! Nice contrasting colours and the people on the beach add scale.

actually a nice shot thru an graphical point of view.

A very graphical shot, beautiful in its minimalism
Merry Xmas and best wishes for 2013

There is something about Barca that inspires artistic shots like this. The angles and geometry and the colours build this scene well. This reminds me of some of the excellent Spanish photographers here (Rafer and JFS).
CLODO (30858) 2013-01-03 5:52
Superb play with surfaces and colors. The tiny colored silhouettes add a supplementary interest.
Best wishes for 2013

a minimalist composition with human presence to give it a strong sense of proportion. You've turned that bit of beach into a modern piece of art, where mood, feeling is, to me, more important than the faithful reproduction of reality.
Have a nice day,
