Taken last Saturday at Struis Bay harbour. V2 is just a small portion of the huge catch of Yellow tail !! One of my favourites - delicious !!
Thank you so much for the positive votes and comments, much appreciated, and to Jeff, Jukka and Joline for their mods !! A special thanx to Ryan [BIGRY] and Colleen [ ColleenW] for their most treasured UA's - it meant a lot to me especially after the fierce criticism from a certain Polish citizen Smile
Have a fabulous Friday !!

Hi Herman, I think V1 is a kind of funny image, throwing fish out from a boat already on land and on its trailor. V2, as a document of the catch, has considerable power. Are the fish yellow tail, or is that the variety? If so, what kind of fish are they? I have become, as much as I love to eat fish, very aware of the issues around fish being the last "wild food" that we, as humans, eat, and how many types of fish are being depleted from the oceans.

And, all that being said, I really like these photos/

In friendship,

Peter

Great timing in v1 Herman and a lovely scene of these men's hard work. I also like v2 for the lines and diagonals the fish create in the tray. First class.

Lovely detail and colours in the fish, Herman. I've done a quick mod on v1, just a crop to take off some left and top. Kept the name in, and there is now more attention on the figures who in turn are directing the viewer towards the fish.
