[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Good Morning Everyone,

Please click All in a Line to see this photograph much bigger and much clearer. The difference is amazing!

I think you might be getting the message that our trip to France didn't provide the warm sunny days that we normally experience. At least it didn't rain!

My photograph shows the popular marina at Piriac-sur-Mer. The little harbour of yesteryear has become a truly modern marina whilst still preserving its original appeal. Its up-to-date moorings don’t quite possess the charm of their stone ancestors but the old buildings remain unchanged in this little village which has always been torn between its two roles of fishing village and seaside resort.

If you look along the line of moored yachts you will be able to see the lighthouse, proudly flying the French flag.

Thank you for your interest. Have a lovely w/e, Bev :-)

Hi Bev, nice compo, colors and contrast. Like the shining whites. The flag on top of the lighthouse is a great feature. Greetings

Bonjour, chère Bev,
Pas un mouvement de vent rendant les eaux semblables à un miroir complet. Les bateaux semblent se mirer avec délectation.
La marina mélange avec bonheur voiliers et bateaux à moteur.
Belle composition.

Hello Bev,
A well stocked marina; I tend to wonder how often these boats actually leave the marina. A very expensive hobby if you ask me:-) But, if all of them were out at sea at the same time, we wouldn't be able to enjoy lovely compositions like this one. I like the oblique point of view, the lines of moored yachts take us inexorably toward the focal point supplied by the lighthouse. The lighting is very agreeable despite the clouds and colours and sharpness excellent. Have a nice weekend, warm and sunny here today, though the nights are beginning to get cold.

Hello Beverley,
Juxtaposition boats in shining white and their reflection, marvelously collected sight.
Exceptional depth and clarity, nice partition from the angle taken from.
Wish you a nice weekend,

hello Beverley
Une très belle composition, angle de vue bien trouvé avec une très agréable perspective.
J'aime bien la tonalité de gris -bleu
Bon W-E

Witaj Bev!
Very nice viw from port.
Boats make impression.
Good frame, colors and light.
Have a nice weekend.

Ciao cara Bev, great parade of beautiful boats, excellent perspective, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Bev,

La diagonale est parfaite dans ce cadre. J'aime beaucoup cette lumière sur les bateaux tandis que le ciel en arrière plan est foncé. Le phare est beau en arrière plan avec le beau drapeau francais.



Hello Bev,
It is a very attractive composition of white diagonals and a lot of vertical lines with the lighthouse as the finest feature. I also like the balance between the fairly dark sky and the very dark water, which also serves as a perfect mirror. This is a fine proof that nice photos can be taken even when the weather is disappointing.
Kind regards,

Hello Beverley,
Great view across the marina and its forest of masts. The pier cuts very nicely through the composition in the background and made sure the water in the marina was very calm and reflected the many boats very nicely in the dark water.

Hi Bev
yup, I can stay around Marina's all day long and have a great time taking photos. this one may not have the old charming row boats and things like that, but that doesn't make it any less appealing. reflections, long repeating lines, a lighthouse, blues and whites, I like it alot. cheers

Belle image du port, la prise en diagonale des bateaux, le phare blanc avec le drapeau français, belle luminosité des bateaux entre le bleu gris du ciel et la mer
beau dimanche

Hi Bev,

Missed this one. The bg lighthouse with the nearby French tricolor flag makes a good focal point. The strong diagonal line of all the moored boats is adding perspective, echoed to a lesser extent at top right by a 2nd row. Tfs.

Hi Bev,
wow this is so pretty! I like how you have placed these well aligned boats in a diagonal line here. The geometry you achieved is so pleasing for the eye. The boats seem so clean and elegant.
I like also the presence of the French flag.

Interesting light with unique color of the sky and the respective reflection in the water.

Very attractive,
excellent work,
