An old fibre-glass dingy floating on an illusionary reflection of a bigger boat casting such a kaleidoscopic cast on the slightly agitated clear water.

quel reéflection, le déromation sont splendide, le couleurs, ce vague brillantes sur l'eau, quelle maîtrise de tons, une merveille.

Bravo et amitié

Good Morning Francis,

This is the sort of shot which would make a fine, almost abstract picture, to adorn the wall of a modern house. I love how the colours swirl and mix together, like a patch of irridescent petrol under the sunlight.
The boat is strongly positioned in the frame, emphasised by its smoothness against the agitated water.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hello Francis Xavier,

Great composition with this old boat and fantastic colorful reflection in the water.
Excellent clarity, sharpness, light and colors.

Bom dis Francis,
It seems to me a painting expressionist and I agree with Bev about the utility to adorn a modern wall.
Great capture MF! A very good and fine work.

Hi Francis,

This would make a great wall poster. You have very keen eyes to spot the interplay between the colorful rippled water and dingy. It's nice that the dingy is rather plain looking and worn, so as not to compete against the reflections in the water. A nice, artistic shot.

Best regards,

Hi Francis, this looks very great, magic reflections, wonderfully composed, a highlight for my eyes.
Regards Rose

Love this one ... this is precisely the kind of thing that I like to observe in water as well. Fantastic shapes, colors, and reflections. Again, very well constructed shot. WEll done.

Hi Francis ,
Amazing result from this shot which looks absolutely Kaleidoscopic,the reflection and lighting condition is beautifully achieved with nice 1/3 framing placing the boat on the top boat and gives enough room for the reflection which gives this result.

Best Regards

Hola Francis
Fantastica imagen con unos reflejos espectaculares y con un colorido magnifico , gran contraste de color y texturas ,gracias por compartir esta maravilla

Buen dia
un saludo

Hi Francis,

To me, this is more artistic than only a photographic work!

You did a great job where the mirror reflections in the waters make this work so splendid. The colors are so wonderful, as there is a festival of colors. The sharpness and POV are well done. An elegant framing also adds great beauty to the shot. Well done!

best greetings,

Hello Francis, this is a real eye catcher!What amazing reflections.The light, colour and pattern are excellent.
The boat looks as if it has seen better days but provides context for the dazzling reflections.
Good title.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Boa noite francis
Not usual and with a fine sharpness, great colors and reflexes... Beautiful and good.
Um abraço

dear Francis Xavier,
a beautiful picture of fantastic water scene,
yes it is kaleidoscopic and artistic view indeed,
reflected fragmental color elements are illusionary,
and the old boat looks floating on that mysterious space,
thank you for your excellent picture,

Hello Francis,
Magnificent shot!
Beautiful color tones, lovely reflections.
Great composition of the photo.

Hello Francis Xavier,

C'est comme les oeuvres de "Salvador Dali"
lorsqu'il créa les "montres dégoulinantes".

Des peintures molles pour un beau poster.
Fantastique création avec une image superbe.
Mes compliments pour l'idée. Beau cadrage.
Belle journée. Amicalement.

Good morning Francis,
Amazing effect of the reflections on the water: it's as if we're beyond a puddle of several colors of paint. Wonderful texture and composition.

Ciao Francis

I missed this one!
What a beautiful look and design of these reflections in the water.
It is as if the oil from boats and colors to mix
and make a painting!
Fine for looking.
Nice composition, good presentation.
