Hi Achim!
Very sharp and charmingly coloured capture! I like the parallelism of the two worlds - the one that toils and the other, thats spending leasure time...

Hi Achim,

This is a nice daily life photo on the beach.
captured with fine details and well framed!
I like reflexes in the sand, very well composed.


Hello Achim,
This is a very interesting picture as they are so many kinds of people on one shot :) This is very interesting to see this diversity. This is a good capture well exposed and composed. These notes are useful too. Thanks,

Hello Achim, this is a great action pic. It is not easty to take pictures of many people at the same time and still have a main subject going on.

Very well done and the image is very sharp.

Great work! Take care, Yan :)

wonderful colours and compo, good daily life scene, a little oversharpened...


Hello Achim,
this is a very interesting shot.
The composition is nicely enhanced by this girl standing in the foreground (mid-left), providing a nice entry point into the picture - and she's also lloking at the activity going on in there, an added bonus!
The reflections in the wet sand are also impressive.

Well done.
best regards, Daniel.

Fishing is a group activity! Whilt look more then participate it look like... Tourists probably :)
For myself i would have pleasure to participate. The experience would have more intensity!
The sand look very compact... it give a nice reflection of light and texture!
