This is the kind of shot that is soulful to me, Tony. I could sit and stare at it this for a long time...an "eternalized moment."
zed: Thanks Ginnie, thats what l was aiming for....this one is about to be printed only the second of my shots that I have bothered
Wow!! 2 seconds and no movement blur!! It must have been truly wind still!! What an epic shot Tony! Absolutely fantastic!! Likey.
zed: Thanks Marion, dont look to close its not as sharp as l would have liked.

Absolutely gorgeous those muted colours are superb

Since you live where I did not visit, I can never say "I've been there." This time I can say it and do remember the beauty of all the sailboats. This is a beautiful shot!!!
zed: Many thanks Mary smile
Super shot, a sea of tranquility.
zed: Thanks John, the only movement was from me trying to keep warm smile
I agree - very nice indeed.
zed: Thank you Sheila
This is even better than a sunset capture, Tony. The lighting is superb and the composition is perfect.
zed: Thanks Beverly, would you believe this is a couple of minutes from where l shoot my degradation series

a cracking image, Tony. It just shows you don't need a perfect sunset. I love the reflections of the masts, the low clouds on the horizon and the detail in the sky. Excellent stuff!
zed: Thanks Alan, l wanted more colour in the sky when l went there, but trust me l wasn't complaining with the results smile
This is excellent Tony. I like it very much
zed: Thank you very much Bill

I love the light, color and composition is wonderful, I'm a fan of this photo
It makes a change i.e. the muteness of the whole image, nice one mate.
zed: Thanks Nigel, I rarely do anything with the colours as l prefer them natural
Delicate and serene. Congratulations, great picture.
stunning shot Tony, love every bit about it
Superb image Tony...and a likey for me too.
zed: many thanks Ron. smile

Beautiful photo Tony....you may not have gotten the sunset that you wanted but just look at what you did get:

1. great sail boats
2. fantastic reflections of them
3. a great sky also reflected
