[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A swimming instructor sitting by the pool for a rest with his young students after quite a long swim across the Pool. I like this composition with the reflecting turquoise water as BG and the back light casting beautiful shadows of the protagonists.

Good Morning Francis,
A beautiful composition of water texture. And sitting students with their intructor using as motif is interesting idea. A charming snapshot. Taking of reflection on glazed surface is adding charm. Beautiful imagne, well done. Thanks for sharing.
Kind Regards,

I like it too Francis.
What i do like is the curve created by the evenly spaced heads.
Well seen, and beautifully presented.

Hi Francis,
Well captured at the right moment.Strong contrast and yet good details.I like the interesting shadows formed on the paving, nicely seen.

Olá Francis,
This proves that you're master photographer, even when you're out of the photos that have already grown accustomed from Malta and it's Luzzus for instance..
Delicate texture and movement of light over water is a work of art as well with the projeted shadows.

Very nice capture of those swimmers. The water looks very inviting. Good lighting and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.

:)) From smallest to biggest. Nice scene at the swimming pool, beautiful colors, nice light

Hello Francis, I have just been watching some of the swimming competition at the Olympics on T.V.;are these going to be future competitors?
A well observed shot, nicely proportioned with the beautiful blue water reflecting the light.
I like that you have the teacher sitting at one end in your composition.And the shadows add extra interest.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Bonsoir Francis Xavier,

Admirable observation, sur cette image d'un moment temporel.
J'aime aussi la lumière caressante sur le murmure de l'eau turquoise.
Un beau contraste avec l'assise ronde des ombres sur la flaque;
Une autre image de votre talent, riche en détails et netteté.
Mes compliments pour ce travail ordonné.
Kind regards

Hi Francis

A cute image, natural colours and dynamic light. tfs

stv ;o))

Hi Francis,
Very nice observation and composition of the swimming instructor with the young students,
Nice POV. and great tone of colors and light,
Excellent capture and presentation.

I like the play between light and shadow, along with the reflections falling on their backside, Francis!

The picture is razor-sharp and skin tones are natural too.
Good approach with superb details and nice DOF.
Well interpreted scene!

Kind regards,

Hi Francis

A bright, full of life and in a way puts a smile on your face type of composition. Nice bright colours especially of the lovely turquoise water, good sharpness overall with well spotted shadows adding another interesting element to your composition.

Nicely framed.


Kind regards,
