Great composition, it does give the feeling of friends sitting back and enjoying the end of long day at work.

On the CC side, the picture could use a little cropping or cloning. There is a car bumper on the right hand side that should be clone out and the bit of a boat on the the left hand side should also be removed.

That looks like a nice HDR as well Bahadir. Keep your eye on the mail. DVD is on its way.

Congratulations dear Bahadir

A wonderfully caught moment. There is a powerful sense of "the good ol' times" conveyed in this photos... thanks for sharing! I agree with you, the free market often does not allow the best small "personal" and cultural aspects to survive... and I say this as someone who has studied economics!

Photo wise, I love the colour you caught in the sky and your masterful HDR efforts well rewarded here. I totally agree with Calicajun's thoughts (and consequently Bynx's great edit). So well done, great team work.

I can't help but wondering if it would have looked better with the boat NOT directly behind the fishermen, but to one side. Maybe if you had stood 10 metres to the right.... but hey, then the background wond not have been so pleasing (and certainly the sun not there)!

Thanks for this photo from your Izmir...

Paul

I love the story this shot tells. A photograph is a pause for a moment of reflection. This shot gave me many moments to reflect.
However, I agree with Cali about the cropping of both the left and right sides of the frame.

Bahadir - I really like that scene & the composition very much. But rather than clone out the car bumper and the boat I've tried to reduce the brilliance of the sun & its reflection in the water because the sun in particular feels (to me) just a bit dazzling. I also wondered whether I'd prefer the picture rotated every so slightly anti-clockwise, so I've rotated it 1 degree - and that disposed of the car bumper.

But now that I've done those things, I wonder if I've detracted from the character of the picture? Anyway, here's what it looks like -

The composition, coupled with the time of this shot taken makes for what I find a deserved rest from a full day at sea with the sun setting down to the west.

The overcast clouds gave a wonderful "softbox" effect of beautifully diffused light with no harsh highlights and deep shadows. Great color too.

Love this shot as it reminds me of when I used to go and see my Dad at the marina back home on Kau'ai, Hawai'i from a long day of fishing with his best friends.

Mahalo,

Tom
