Just a prow, or better, the reflection of a Luzzu prow.
One can admire the steel railings around the prow in the clear slightly rippled water with a gentle breeze of the Marsaxlokk Harbor, Malta. Not too much colors as usual but still colorful!

I never tire of these Luzzu photos Francis :) I can only imagine how many photos I would take if I were there and had the opportunity!
Nicely composed shot here. I love the way you've shown only a small section of the boat, but concentrated on the water reflection. Lovely colors.

Hi Francis.
A lovely composition for this luzzu prow captured with beautiful framing where you show its reflection with swirl of water makes it more dramatic with contrast colors.
Kind Regards

Boa tarde Francis
I like a lot this Luzzu prow...Simple and very artistic...there is not the explosion of colors but a peaceful world with colors and haromy..
Good sharpness and in this case I like the frame
um abraço

Hi Francis,

Very well spotted,lovely image,excellent colours and reflections.

Amazing piece of artwork and I believe that an artist can feel it in daily-life scene, Francis!

Good sharpness and well management of exposure with superb show of colors.
The POV and DOF are wlel done, and the mirror-reflections on the surface of waters do magic in the scene.
Well done!

Kind regards,

Hi Francis, I really like this one with the railing only shown in the reflections. Nice light pattern on the boat too. Fiona

wow, cool shot, i love reflection shots and really like what i call tight compositions where the photographer crops the composition giving the viewer just a snippit of the scene, can get very abstract too,
nice one,

Hi Francis,

Awesome shot and great reflection , excellent movement of the water.
The perfect framing and light, all this amazing colors.
Great DOF and POV, TFS.
My best regards.

Hello Francis, I love the way that these reflections can become abstract pictures.Was this a tight crop made through PP? Or was it made in camera?Whichever,it offers lovely colours and pattern.
The framing suits it too.
Tfs, regards Jean.
