hey Chris, I like the arrangement of the boats here!
Together with the waterway, they lead the eye nicely in to a well exposed and sahrp image.

Well done.
best regards, Daniel

Hello dear Chris, I understand you being bored by the gloomy weather but this image is far from being gloomy, it is so inviting, bright and colourful. I too long for summer.

Very nice compositon with the curved line of boats going up to the sea. Lovely colours and very sharp.

Take care, Yan!

Ps: many thx for your review in "Montreal's Architecture". It's appreciated :)

Beautiful compo, Chris !
It's strange to see so many boats on that little creek.
Very nice colours, too.


Good composition. I like the curves of the water. Nice to hear this area is recovering from the disaster. That's good news.

Very nice composition, Chris, following the line of the river and boats..You have captured many things here, and they balance/complement each other harmoniously. The shadows and colors add to it as well.


Very interesting POV. nice details. Thanks for sharing

Hello Chris,
I like the curving line of the river on its way to the sea!
Attraction is emphasised by the boats lining up...
Good colours and lots of interesting details to explore!

Hi Chris,

Beautiful visual, this beach reminds me more to the north of my city, where the beaches join with the Mountain of the Sea and she makes these beautiful ones visual, taste of the shot, of the colors and the formation of the boats the wait of the sea.
Beautiful shot, great composition!


Love the comp, Chris, the colourful boats such a wonderful 'eye-leader' through the image, thanx, M, (*_*)
