[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Byblos ( Jbail in arabic ) is idyllic , a fine natural setting for a boat harbor ,a little away are coves set among big rocks along the seashore that are suitable for line fishing without getting your feet wet, oh well only once you have made your way onto the ( often slippery ) twisted rock down to the coveted spot . I was out there for sunset viewing and photography standing a little higher on those rocks when i found this fisherman almost hidden behind a formation with his ultra long rod tackling the fish the sun slowly setting over the horizon . Pretty much as i saw this tint-wise . We watched sunsets almost daily during our trip to Lebanon .
Iso 80 , 1/320 , f/5.0 ,straightened the horizon , saturated by 5% and sharpened a bit.
Thanks for looking,

Hi Carol,

beautiful picture, one can feel the quiet atmosphere and the composition is great !


Tiens..tiens,,, si ce n'est pas Mr Carol...avec ses photos toujours aussi belles....
Magnifique avec ce pêcheur et cette barque au loin....
Très belle composition

Hey neighbor!! How are you?
This is really great Carol - love the way you've composed the whole shot ... the sun off-center, the boat on the right side, the craggy rocks silhouetted, and the fisherman with that extra long pole on the left. Fantastic!! Beautiful tones in the sky, and the water just shimmers with those reflections too. nice simple framing to set it all off! Very well done my friend :)

Boa tarde Carol
I remarke that you have been in Lebanon...sun and sea are beautiful in any place of earth, always different but always with intense mood.I would love to go there... I hope you took photos from there because you are a good eye to life moments and things ( I am curious about architecture). The "little details" as the fisherman are precious adds to the well captured momentbetween a silhuette and the sun.As usual I have always the feeling that you never miss a drop of life and you share it. Thanks.
Um Bom abraço

Bonjour Carol,
Jolie coucher de soleil et composition,
belle réflection et lumière,
le bateau et le pêcheur sont un + dans ta présentation,
belles couleurs chaudes aussi,
salutations et compliments

This is a true sunset delight where you share the spell of a great moment, Carol!
I like the way you positioned the silhouettes of the cliff and a fisherman, enjoying this warm moment and of course fishing too. Well done sharpness and nice mirror-reflections within a the peaceful waters also make this work interesting and eye-catching. The addition of the boat in the far, is certainly a bonus.
Well seen!

A classical painting like work!

Warm greetings,

Hello, Carol -
Nice to see a post from you, my friend. This is such a nice composition with the rugged rocky cliff occupying about 1/3 of the frame. The open water gives a nice sense of open space and the lone fisherman provides a nice human element. Really nice!

Bonsoir Carol,
Une destination idyllique, en effet!
Et quel point de vue! Superbe interaction entre ce pêcheur et le coucher de soleil, ici!
Le contrejour, les couleurs et la composition donnent image d'une grande beauté et sérénité.

Hi Carol.
Beautiful warm tones of the sun set color with calm mood while the FG stone and the activity of man with waiting for hunt with the floating boat on the calm water altogether adds a story to your lovely composition.

Best Wishes
