[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The word written on the rock wall means happy birthday.

PP: In Lightroom, increased contrast and clarity in boat and persons, increased exposure in wall and shadows of subjects. The wall was really dark so I carefully increased exposure while reducing noise to a minimum.

Hello Lauro,
This is a beautiful as well as meaningful image about life that really evokes many thoughts - a stationary senior couple, perhaps celebrating and pondering what was or could have been, with life passing by ... Thank you for the explanation. Cropping most of the sky off, as well as a little off the left, would further improve the image. But it has meaning and that makes a world, or an ocean, of difference. Thank you and best wishes.

PS: Is the name of the ship Achille Lauro perhaps? :)

There is a lot of meaning in this photo, the blue sky and ocean and the nice couple in this photo induce the sense of life. Very Clear and Inspiring Shot.

Ola Lauro! Very fine idea and very nice picture. A nice pair. Wonderful ship in the background. Good cut, very good exposure and capture. Original composition. Saude!


The pic has lots of details with good contrast. Well done.


Hi Lauro

Technically well handled, but I agree with everything Neels has said, I think cropping would improve the image

Hello Lauro,
a really nice composition with FG interest provided by the couple and the ship on the horizon to give depth.
The upright format works a treat,don`t crop a thing!
Regards Les.
