[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Fishing boats in Hoonah Harbour near Icy Strait Point, Alaska - the water here was totally black, don't know why but I am sure it wasn't pollution.

Hoonah has about 900 residents and life here must be pretty tough and we saw it in summer. The fire hydrants had 2-3 metre poles attached to them so they could find them in Winter. (Maybe that's common up there but it was the first time we had seen it)

Hi Jack,
A nice port capture with all these boats casting splendid reflections in the slightly rippled water. I like the HDR treatment to enhance the colors and render even exposure throughout.
Very neat work.

Hi Jack

Good distorted reflections in the ripple surface of the water with excellent sharpness & colour saturation. Good placement of the horizon line (water) below the centre. Tfs!

la verdad que es una foto excelente. Justamente el pasado fin de semana estuve en mar del plata, que es una ciudad con puerto y le saque unas fotos a unos barcos pesqueros, aunque con una camara analogica
genial foto! saludos!!

Great colours especially in the water. I would have liked to have seen more of the reflections even if it meant sacrificing the ships masts. Nicely composed however. TFS

Hi Jack,
Very impressive shot with crisp colors. I agree with David, the rule of thumb is to show more of the dramatic part you an image, however, this is a nice POV, I like the reflections in the water and the Good light management and pleasant color saturation. Well done for this neat work. TFS,

hi jack;
bu ne karmaşa ne karışıklık baktıkça başım dönüyor.
kusura bakma ama mesela sadece yansımaları alabilseydin çok orjinal olabilirdi.
