Marvelous tranquill scene

KasiaD , 28.10.2007 at 9:53h

@everyone, thank you for your appreciation of this shot. It is one of my favourites of recent times. The sky was just amazing that day and then the yacht sailed into the scene!
@Reinhold, Doro, danke für Eure Zustimmung. Der Himmel war an dem Tag einfach sehr fotogen! Und dann kam das Boot dazu.

Cees Kuijs, 28.10.2007 at 10:28h

Very impressive skypart !!. Very well composed.
Greetings, Cees

J. Und J. Mehwald, 28.10.2007 at 20:57h

Von dem Himmel hätten wir nichts abgeschnitten, tolle Stimmung hast Du da festgehalten!

Vesela Maleeva, 28.10.2007 at 22:57h

This silver lightblue you have here is my favourite
colour, combined with the divine light and the
composition with the boat, the dramatic sky and
calm water -- you have a masterpiece and it's beautiful.

Manuel Gloger, 29.10.2007 at 19:51h

Ein tolles Foto mit den durch die Wolkendecke brechenden Sonnenstrahlen.. Bei diesen Wolken kann der Segler froh sein, dass Land in sicht ist.
LG Manuel

Stephie S., 4.11.2007 at 9:34h

I find it incredibly beautifully, one can see force, beauty and threatening evil in a picture. It states a lot about fear and courage.
And because I can so badly English, everything again in German:
Ich finde das Bild unglaublich schön, man kann Kraft, Schönheit und drohendes Unheil in einem Bild sehen. Es sagt sehr viel aus über Angst und Mut.

Theo Weijmer, 4.11.2007 at 9:34h

@Stephie thanks for trying but it it is, well I'm also not English, perfect as well as the picture, PRO

KasiaD , 4.11.2007 at 9:34h

@Stephie, thank you for your proposal - I am really honoured that you have suggested this shot of mine.
@Bernhard, there is such a thing as poetic licence;-)
Is it not the emotions a photo or painting create rather than the factual situation that makes it special or not?But I'll let you all judge this for yourselves.

Maguire , 4.11.2007 at 9:34h

I don't hold with 'good' or 'evil' being found in nature.. nature just 'is'.. that aside..

its a beautiful photo... pro
