[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I don't get out too much with the camera these days. So a day trip to Collioure in SW France on the Med coast was a good opportunity to brush the cobwebs off.

It was BUSY!As you can see. And very hot. But the food was good and the water nice and cool ;-)

A RAW photo, minor PP plus frame.

Hi David,
A nice point of view and perpective with beautiful naturel
colors and tone,
Lovely place to be in a warm day.
Excellent DOF. and composition.
My compliments

Though you post not often but your pictures are always a delight to look at, DAvid!

A razor-sharp shot of a beach scene showing daily life moment with nice mood and charm.
I can feel the warmth of the air and the coolness of the sea waters.
The colors are natural and light is very well handled.
An ideal blue sky brings charm whereas beautiful buildings with colorful facade add mood into the picture.

Thanks for sharing.

Kind regards,

HI David, very characteristic beach scene and this capture is perfect. Very well chosen POV, nice colours, this photo lives indeed.
Regards Rose

wow, busy alright!! It's all part of summer though, and everyone trying to squeeze in as much as we can.

Love the colors here - the colors of all the sunbathers and their clothing of course, but also the sky & water color is fantastic. Nicely composed too.

All is well here ... have had a great summer. How about you ... any family trips lately?
Hope all is well with you too.

A nicley composed shot of sunworshipers, A little too busy for me but the water does look inviting.

Hi, David. This is a postcard with excellent sharpness, well composed with a thoughtful POv to give a maximum perspective and details. Colors and the relaxed atmosphere of the busy beach add to the compopsition. Simple but elegant framing. Cheers.

Hi David..nice shot...excellent perspective and point of view...great colors and tones.

The concept of beach for me is the roaring waves and sand but in Europe there are not that type or kinds of beach that I call male beach, the white sand beaches that I found in Western Australia is pure female beach with a beauty and blue sea, here not many people are in the water as looks shy of water also no umbrella..TFS..
