A capture I'd made a few years ago in the marina of Dalaman.
This fisherman was preparing his nets for a big catch :-)
I don't have any idea what was the result !

The scenery reminded me the famous novel by Hemingway.

The Old Man and the Sea, short novel by Ernest Hemingway, published in 1952 and awarded the 1953 Pulitzer Prize for fiction.
It was a highly popular novella, published first in Life magazine on September 1, 1952, to much acclaim, and the story helped revive interest in his work in general. The book’s success made Hemingway a worldwide celebrity and contributed to the honour he then received in 1954—the Nobel Prize for Literature. It was Hemingway’s last major work of fiction.

Hello Mesut,
An excellent photo of this fisherman busy with his net. Excellent sharpness and the composition is perfect. The yellow net adds some colour, just as the blue of the boat. Very well done.

Hello Mesut,
People at work are always interesting photo objects. This is a good close view of the fisherman handling his nets. The yellow net makes a nice contrast to the blue boat. In the background the light is beautifully reflected in the rippled water.
Kind regards,

Merhaba Mesut,

It is interesting to see a man whose job it is to fish in a small boat, and to see him working on the tools of trade makes it even more interesting.
I like that you have cropped the scene, focussing directly on the fisherman, who is well placed in the frame.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Ciao Mesut, lovely daily life scene with fisherman in action, fine details, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Le vrai travial du pêcheur avec ces filets jaune en train de les réparer et contrôler comme il est concentré sur son sujet sueprbe cpatage et vue.
Bravo et amitié

Bonjour Mesut,

Comme j'ai des mains pleines de pouces, j'aurais beaucoup de difficulté à réparer des filets et comme je suis toujours tout mêlé, je ne me retrouverais plus.Très beau portrait d'un homme au travail.



Dobro vece.
Lep pogled i trenutak, interesantan tekst, lepo secanje na Ernest Hemingway ...
Lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak.
Ribolovac priprema mrezu za nov lov i avanturu.
Zelim vam lepu i mirnu noc, sve najbolje.

Good evening.
A nice view and a moment, interesting text, nice memories of Ernest Hemingway ...
Beautifully shown, good contrast, beautiful colors, beautifully captured moment.
A fisherman prepares a network for new hunting and adventure.
I wish you a nice and peaceful night, all the best.

Hi Mesut,
Excellent daily life portrait showing this fisherman sorting out the net on his boat. Yellow net and blue boat make a good colour combination. Sidelight works very well.

Hello Mesut,

A superb daily life scene of the fisherman repairing his net. Good sharpness and nice use of a shallow dof throwing the bg water oof. I like the reflected sheen in the water. Tfs!

Hi Mesut
The hard life shows in the face and a fascinating glimpse into another way of life. I liked the way this fishermen is framed fully engrossed in his task mending the nets while stealing most of the attention in. Good angle filled with a wealth of colourful things and good clarity. An image with plenty to take in. Excellent shot.
Best regards

Hi Mesut,
Good timing to take this fisherman with the net, perfect sharpness and nice warm light, well captured, tfs.

Ciao Mesut
hai fotografato un gesto che viene ripetuto da migliaia d'anni, il rapporto dell'uomo con la pesca è uno dei più antichi.

Hello Mesut,
A very beautiful picture of the fisherman being busy with his job.
Clear and sharp view from close by.
The fact that he keeps his attention on his work makes the picture very attractive.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Mesut
A very suitable design for a new edition of the novel "The old man and the sea"
Interesting to see how concentrated the fisherman inspects this net. It must have become a good catch, at least for you with this successful photo.
Excellent work
Have a nice day, groet Rob

Hello Mesut,

Fishers and nets are one part of them live.
Again a nice picture with pleasant colours.
An excellent composition nice photographed.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Hi, Mesut.
Wonderful portrait of this fisherman, captured with a fantastic detail, while he is reviewing his fishing net, the surface of the sea as a background enhances his figure.
Sharpness, lighting ande color, are perfect.
Well done. I like it.
You have a good day.
Very best regards.

Merhaba Mesut
Superbe portrait du pêcheur avec son filet de pêche jaune
sublime lumière et couleurs
Bonne soirée

Dear Mesut,

Its a nice capture of the fisherman as he is folding his net.

Best Wishes,

Hi Mesut,
fisherman with its nets: it is such a photogenic subject! Men at work in general but fisherman have always something special about them.
Great portrait here, I would probably title it "The old man and the sea" like the Hemingway novel.
Very well seen and captured,

Why B&W depicted as "Medium"?
Gunaydin Mesut,
Wonderful capture of the fisherman preparing the nets.
Light and shadows work well with the colors, superbly gave him nice glow.
Added this to my "People at work" theme.
Best regards,

Merhaba Mesut, very good photo of this scene of the daily life of the fisherman, very well captured in this interesting image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. A great job perfectly done, my congratulations, my friend. Thanks for sharing this interesting work.

Good night and happy Sunday.
All the best from the south of Spain.
