Yes, pure tranquility: no noise, no terrible speed, a calm sea, and colours that contrast nicely with the overall blue... It was a special treat for me to see this small sailing-boat pass by the "dogbeach" in Domburg.

The wonders of a day at the beach - at least for people like me, who live nowhere near the sea ☺^☺.

Levelled out, cropped slightly.

Adjustment layers for levels and curves.

Downsized and framed with home-knitted PS actions, then signed.

Outstanding colours, composition and perfect mood
I love the way you have left LOTS of room for the bot to sail into -- it works well that way

Hi Frank,
Wonderful summer colors... Nice sharp photo! Smart boaters as well...

Tricia

A real postcard. the image is very successful with its saturated colors, the result is very good.

A beautifull photo,
Thx for sharing.

hi Dingo

this looks like a paint chart, fantastic bright vivid colours, excellent details and very well composed.

regards c.d.

I like the simplicity of this shot and the bright colors of the sails against the blue of the sky and water. NIcely seen, TFS.

Sorry Frank ...
enkel in " colours that contrast " moet ik je gelijk geven.
( de rest is niet of amper meetbaar )

Ik ben er me van bewust dat wat jij hebt ervaren iets speciaal was maar, zelfs met die info, kom ik niet verder
dan " een aardige plaat ".
Noch de lucht, noch het water zijn je goedgezind :
denk de kleurrijke zeilen weg en tracht het te verkopen als
" uw volgende vakantiebestemming wordt dit paradijs "

Heel eigenaardig ook : er zit daar ergens een bruine strook in dat water.

Deze compo werkt voor mij (!!) niet.
Dus ben afgestapt van je " Tranquility " gegeven
( die personen zijn daar niet aan het niksen h )
en heb een blow-up gedaan.
Kwalitieit ondermaats uiteraard maar, ik zou het posten
in B/W : vanaf je kleuren er gaat bijsleuren
kom je volgens mij in een " grijze " zone.

En zo gaat het avond-na-avond
denk ik " ga eens een foto posten "
maar neen ...
duwt er dat net iemand een moeilijke foto onder m'n snuiter.
Dus vandaag wr geen post van me.
Hmm ...

TFS
misschien bespreken we deze nog wel eens offline ? ;-)

Groetjes
Jan

Prachtig die kleuren!! Heel mooi neergezet! Alleen jammer dat de rest dan zo "saai" is. Maar ja, het weer en de golven zijn niet echt te bestellen...:)

hi frank,

good capture, great composition and colors.
i like the mood...

tfs - chris

Wonderful I just love the splash of rainbow colours on a perfect sea and sky. Cheers Joan

I love the brightness of those colours against the seemingly dull sea and sky Frank. Well composed and cropped with good detail. You had better be taking Dingo to the beach more often,
David
