[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Every year in June, a Market Day is arranged at the fishmarket and nearby surroundings in Bergen. I captured this scene yesterday, when this festival was arranged for the 40th time. Many people were gathered to enjoy old fishing boats, song and music and lots of local food. I thought this was a nice collection of traditional fishing boats.

Hi Erling,the summer is back with its warm and long days and it's possible now to start the fest in the northern Europe. Nice example from Bergen in these days,a lovely composition very sharp and very rich,i like it! Have a nice Sunday and thanks,Luciano

Hello Erling,
There are clouds seem to be gathering above the far horizon, and still you hade favorable daylight for this port scenery. Always intriguing photography on marinas.
Fine outcome, my cong.s'.

Bonjour, Erling,
L'image est trčs belle. La composition générale traduit bien l'ambiance qui se dégage de cette réalisation.
Une photo qui s'apparente ā une peinture.
Trčs bien.

Hello Erling,

This is a wonderful shot, with the boats ablaze with flags and bunting, cosily moored for this exciting festival.
I like the composition, the line of boats guiding into the scene, where the colour of the tall building links nicely with the wood of the boats.

Had you ever thought of reducing the size of your photograph? At around 1300 pixels, the photograph is still clear and can be viewed on Beta without any alterations. At 3500 pixels, it cannot be viewed without reducing the screen about 4 times. On Beta your photograph clearly shows men onboard the boats, even on the small boat to the left. It really is a much clearer site. I have started putting a Beta link on all my shots that are landscape. The problem doesn't seem to arise on portrait shots.

Have a lovely day,
Bev :-)

Hello Erling,
I really like the mood of this photo with these many boats closely together. The many flags and vivid colours add a festive atmosphere. The light was pleasant and went well together with the grey clouds in the background. The reflections in the water are attractive.

Avec le rendu sur ce bois des bateaux quel port et vue de bien beau bateaaux suepčrbe compo et vue ce blanc et ce bois et en fond ces édifices sueprbe.
Bravo et amitié

BOnjour Erling

J'aime vraiment beaucoup cette composition. Les navires profitent d'une belle lumičre tandis que l'arričre plan profite d'un ciel presque noir qui contraste ā merveille.



Hej Erling,
Detta är en väldigt fin bild av de vackra båtarna som ligger tätt intill varandra i hamnen. Bilden är fantastiskt skarp och har en underbar lyster, kanske tack vare de mörka molnen. Jag tycker om balansen mellan de gråa molnen och det nästan svarta vattnet. Alla bäst tycker jag om den lilla båten i mitten med fyra män ombord. Bilden har en trevlig och festlig stämning, trots att det säkert snart började regna.
Vänliga hälsningar,

Hello Erling,a lovely sharp shot of this special day in Bergen.The boats stand out against the grey sky,and there is still a bright enough light creating reflections on the rippled water.
The bunting adds extra colour.
Thanks for sharing,
regards Jean.

Good morning,
I like the strong contrasts from your port scene. Also, nice elements in this composition. Good catch!


Hi Erling,
I usually prefer sunny views, but on this case that dark threatening seems to fit well with the subject. Maybe it's that brown wood colour that is in harmony with grey tones. Those boats make quite crowded appearance, in a positive sense.

Hello dear Erling and have a nice time
and a happy new day

Hello Erling, Nice view from the market day, with the boats in the harbour rather than stalls. Nice lively atmosphere. The dark clouds give special background.

Beautiful picture.

Hello Erling,
This is a beautiful harbor view. I like the moody sky, and the light on the boats. It's interesting to look at each boat and see who is on board. It must have been a lovely festival.

Hi Erling,
Bergen is beautiful city with fantastic fish market. The boats anchored with fresh fish next to market. I always love fishing harbor.
Great capture with good quality.

Hello Erling,

Nice repetition of the moored yachts with good sharpness, colour and saturation. Good reflections and the colourful flags contrast with the dull grey bg. The small blue dinghy adds a nice focal point and contrasts well with the reddish brown colour of the larger boat's hulls. Tfs!

Hi Erling
my favorite boat is the one on the far right, the brown sections stand out well, and it seems to have the oldest look and feel to it.

too bad I wasn't here, I would have enjoyed it. good to have the grey skies above, they work well too. cheers
