Hi Francis Xavier,
Thanks to your images of your homeland,if I ever have the opportunity to visit it,I would not feel like a stranger,as you portray it so well.Have you ever thought of going into partnership with your local tourist board to print your images in their magazines?They would make great souvenirs for the tourists to take home.

Is there enough room for the boats to manuever out of their slip? Nicely captured with good dof and sharp details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hello Francis :)

This harbour of yachts looks magnificently and very flashily,
and pretty pastel colours and gentle light enlarge still this effect,
with miraculous reflexes afloat and the beautiful sky.
The spectacular composition in interesting details.
The splendid realization in HDR, I like him. :)

I greet warmly.

Bonjour Francis Xavier,

In my country we park car on each side of the street, in yours it looks like you park boats ;o)

Nice picture, we can feel the HDR process but in general the treatment render nice good details all over the image. Good exposure rendering the feeling of evening light. Good sharpness, nice composition. Good work and TFS

A stunning capture of this harbor scene. Your PP work and HDR effect
really enhance the image overall and add a cool looking mood.
Wonderful looking ripple effect and reflections in the water.

Great capture of this dock as the sun sets. The sky sets the mood for a relaxation. I like the sky's reflection in the water as well as the surrounding marina buildings.


A wonderful twilight scene you have unveiled in this shot, dear Francis!

the mirror-reflections are doing their wonder in the scene.
I like the light here which is so nicely caught with perfect exposure and great clarity.
The colors are natural and POV is amazing.
Well done!

Thanks and regards,

What a lovely evening. The area looks very quiet and tranquil. Fine composition and great colours


superb view
I like the colors and atmosphere

Hi Francis,

You're capturing well twilight harbor by a good composition and tasteful color tone, so it's impressive to see the harvor where yacht lines both sides. The colors at twilight is melting into this harbor, too. Technically, it's interesting in the painting of realism is seen in the point of color touch, perspective and sharpness. And, the reflection projected to water draws out additional good effect for the whole as well as the expression in the sky.


Hi there
This is a beautiful shot. Stunning soft colours, beautiful composition, excellent sharpness.
Well done and TFS!
