Ahh, a man after my own heart. Lovely lines and reflections, great POV Stephen! I might have given it a little more saturation to bring out the red and blues, but the soft tones work really well also. Well done.

@Kylie Greenan: Thanks for the suggestion, Kylie.

Paco Díaz from Palma de Mallorca, Spain

The detail of these lines and colors give a living impression that I appreciate very much. I can see te movement of the water and the changing lines. Good.

@nanne: Nanne - thank you for the visit and comment - I just visited your photo - blog - website and need to figure out how to send you a comment (my lack of Dutch is presenting a bit of a language barrier, but I'll manage)- it is nice to 'meet' you.

Ron from Saint Louis, United States

I'm a sucker for a good reflection ... and I love this one. On one of my visits to SF I stayed at the Hotel Triton very near Chinatown ... which, of course, has nothing to do with this photo, but your image brings back fond memories of a trip from my past and I suppose that does connect it to your fine photograph. Thanks, Stephen!

I like the fact that you can see more in the reflection than in the original. Nicely framed.

Walter from Watkinsville, United States

The angle of the sun brings out the most of this picture. If I were to guess, I would think it is about 8-9 am on a summer morning. And since it is my favorite time of year and the photo is of my favorite pastime water and boats, I love it.

It's amazing what we find in the archives, and this is a nice reflection shot, and that mellow sun touching the boat is lovely.

You've really captured the serenity of this seaside scene. Wish I was there....

Rui from Leiria, Portugal

Great reflection. So clear and sharp. I agree with Kylie, about the colors. Probably a bit more contrast to highlight the colors would work well. Anyway, it's a terrofic job!
