Hello Ike,
A lovely summer capture of this marina. I like this forest of masts, nicely captured and cropped. Good angle too, the boats add a nice diagonal and the reflections are also very appealing.

Hi Ike,the diagonal perspective is the best choice to create a very busy composition. Very rich,with the geometries and lines of boat trees and with bright reflections too like a lot of white underscores,very sharp and bright as usual,i like it! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Bonjour, cher Ike,
Cet alignement de superbes voiliers et cet entrelacs de mâts qui se détachent joliment sur ce fond de ciel bleu sont un véritable délice.

Hello Ike,
I like the tight framing and the graphism offered by the tightly packed masts. Agreeable lights and colours and very good sharpness.

Hello Ike,
My eyes easily get lost among the masts, all looking more or less the same, but further down I see several differences among the boats, including the life buoys. They all have in common that they produce nice reflections. I imagine there is quite a lot of money seen in this photo.
Kind regards,

Dobar dan.
Interesantan i lep pogled, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast, lepe boje.
Lepe jahte u marini.
Zelim vam lep dan, sve najbolje.

Hi Ike,

The masts of the boats have a graphical effect. The point of view is showing the details of the boats at the marina. The light is enhancing the beauty of the colours. Have a nice day.

Hello Ike,

I like the tight framing with no wasted space, the superb sharpness, the repetition of the yachts and the fg reflections in the water. Tfs!

Witaj Ike!
Nice view from port.
Jachts make impression.
Good POV, composition and colors.
Well done.
Nice weekend.

Hello, Ike.
A beautiful composition, with the perfect alignment of these sailboats, their masts look like a forest of logs.
Very effective coloring, which highlights the details of the image.
Good management, both brightness and sharpness.
Very well done. I like it.
Enjoy the weekend.
My best wishes for you.

Shalom Ike, very good photograph of this beautiful and interesting composition in the port, very well captured in this beautiful image, with good sharpness, light, color and quality. Very good and interesting work perfectly done, my congratulations my friend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful work.

Good night and happy Sunday.
Best wishes from the south of Spain.

Hello Ike,
The repeating patterns of the sterns of the boats and the forest of masts look lovely, not yo mention the reflections. 👍

Hello Ike,
nice the view of the anchored sailing boats with the created reflections to make the image more attractive.The lot of masts make the image more confusing as outline against the blue of the sky.


Ciao Ike
bel taglio sulle barche, ottima la diagonale costruita con le poppe che si contrappone alle tante linee verticali degli alberi, a concludere, un bel riflesso.

Hello Ike,

The masts look like a forest, there are so many of them. I like how the boats are ordered along the diagonal. They all look similar to each other. Beautiful reflections. Lovely picture in white and blue.

Kind regards Malgo

Hi Ike,
Beautiful sun light and water reflections, well framed all these sailboats, tfs.

Hello Ike,
Ports are often the setting for beautiful pictures.
This is also the case with marinas.
The multiplicity of masts plays an important role on this photo.
Also the diagonal line of the boats moored against each other, the brightness and colours make the picture beautiful.
Best regards, Paul

Hello Ike,

A lovely, summer shot, to make us think of bright holidays next to the sea!
The diagonal composition is very well engineered, emphasising the repeating nature of the sterns and the masts and drawing our eyes across the frame.
The gently-rippling sea is a perfect surface for reflecting the yachts and creating an Impressionist type scene!

Have a lovely Sunday,
Bev :-)

Ciao Ike, great parade of boats, beautiful reflections, splendid light and wonderful colors very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Nice pattern of boats and masts, with good reflections on the water too. Excellent, congratulations!

Hello Ike,
A very nice composition from the Herzlyia marina.
Picture with beautiful colors and details.
Very well composition, lovely presentation.

Hi Ike
I like these shots basically because its a sign of summer, at least here in Vancouver anyways. its hard to fit all the masts in, so often is the case where its best to cut them off - as you have done. simple and pleasing shot, nothing wrong with this one at all. cheers

Bonne journée

Hello dear Ikeharel and have a nice time

wow!!!breathtaking view to those boats
anchored in the Herzlyia marina
you captured this moment perfectly
I love the boats the fishing and the sea

Hello Ike

I like the tight framing in this shot. A nicely composed picture of these sailboats. Painting-like effect of the reflections. Fine colours and well managed light. Lovely work:) TFS.

Greetings, Erling

Hello Ike
A marina is always a wonderful hunting ground for the artistically oriented photographer.
A forest of masts, the round shapes of the boats and often abstract reflections in the water make the marina a true el Dorado.
Wonderful work.
Have a good weekend, groet Rob

Hello Ike, an excellent tightly cropped scene from the marina.
The masts fill the top half of the shot, like man-made trees!
Great composition, sharp shot and the bonus of lovely reflections too.
TFS, regards Jean.
