lovely colours Francis well spotted nice add to the theme tfs
regards bryan

Good Morning Francis,

Your use of portrait style has really got the best out of this shot, as it makes the rippling, vibrating patterns go on for ever!
The boat sets the context whilst the abstract patterns are strong and sharp.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hi Francis,

Great contribution on theme "Water"!
I like the intense blue colored reflected sky and distorted reflections of the golden yellow historic buildings. The colors in the picture are extraordinary and the sharpness and POV are just wonderfully managed.

Great work, as always!

best wishes,

Wow, this is attractive Francis. Wonderful ripples, colors, and reflection. As my son would say...awesome. regards

Great contribution to the theme, Francis. The colors are superb.
If you had cloned away the boat, the image would have been surrealistic or modern art.
Nice frame too.

Hi Francis,

The rippled colors are wonderful, water makes such an interesting subject for photography. Superb sharpness and saturation. I like the inclusion of the bow of the anchored boat. TFS

Hello Francis,
Belle contribution pour le thème (eau).
Les réflexions du restaurant offrent au regard de superbes ondulations, elles laissent le bateau dans l'élément silencieux.
Les couleurs pointues sont fantastiques,
bravo, c'est une jolie capture.
Amical bonsoir.


Excellent shot - I like this a lot! Very strong composition with the placement of the boat in the extreme upper left. Strong colours, and a great observation of the abstract created by the reflections in moving water.

That's like a modern painting, Francis, I like the brilliant colours, very pretty, thanks

dear Francis Xavier,
this looks almost an abstract art work,
remained partial red boat holds the interesting actuality,
swinging colors make beautiful wavy pattern, it is still in this, but it shows the duration time of motive pattern, maybe it is the reason of this taste.
break original shape and abstract essence from broken fragments, it is nice way of natural water surface to us,
thank you,

Hi Francis
eye catching painters work.
wonderful brush spreading of marvelous golden pattern.
interesting presentation, well seen and framed in vertical format.
