This is cool!! and I really don't mind the slanted horizon line, it adds a bit of flavor to the shot for some reason! Amazing and yes, we have shrimp boats and lordy lordy I know you know the smell! HAHA!

Hi Tom
That is what I'd call an organized mess.. But I bet not the the fishermen!
I love all the colors and details...


Hi Tom
Very good harbour scene and great shot

Hi Tom
Now this is the Maine I remember form that trip long ago. I think back then most of the traps were wooden. Well captured with perfect clarity front to back. Thanks for the memory.


Hi Tom...very nice details in this shot..nicely composed.

Hi Tom,
The sight of lobster traps says it all that the main industry here is fishing. I hope lobsters there are affordable ... here in NZ, unless if you catch them yourself, an average family cannot afford this delicacy in their table. Wonderfully captured documentary photo. Well done! tfs and have a nice weekend.

HI Tom
I can almost smell the sea air.
Definitely a Maine scenery, and like Linda says the slanted horizon does not show too much in the very busy shot.
Great shot

Hello Tom,
Seems like Bernard is a place busy in the lobster business!
Many interesting details in this frame, but the only thing I know about lobster business is the fact Canadian lobsters cost 1/5 of Norwegian lobsters...
Good colours and sharp details, a well composed presentation!

A VERY busy place!!! This picture really makes me miss the ocean. Very nice pov and I enjoy all the colors. TFS

What a wonderful name, Tom! Fancy being nicknamed Lobsterville. As a lover of lobster, but rarely being to afford it, this would be my idyll!

You have chosen a perfect viewpoint creating a diagonal across the shot, separating the harbour from the water. Sharp, detailed and well saturated colours.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)
