The Blue Marina

By colmar  
Good Morning,

Dover marina, crowded and busy ... There is talk of a new marina and I suspect that it would be greatfully received by the sailors, locally many of the weekenders dock their craft at Folkestone, Deal and further afield as space is so limited.

Camera hand held and yes I urge large and for window users f11 and ctrl+ ..... for mac user large and cmd+

Many thanks for the comment and votes on Hythe Imperial Sunset ,and indeed a few other images , all votes and constructive comment are gratefully received and truly appreciated. Colin and Mari

Colin this looks very good to me, my friend try using different PoVs as well if you get time... a biiiiit distracted by greenery, somehow not matching :? don't know why. I think it's because the green area is cropped, hence, if you manage to capture this from a farther distance that covers entire greened area it will look great. Overall I give this 10/10. Excellent work Colin

Busy but so tidy, orderly, regular, with the repeating blues and mast lines. It's difficult to get a good composition of a view like this, but you've succeeded.

Watcha Colin,
excellent, busy, harbour scene.

Quote:amazing to see a barge go by the lounge windows

that water disappears down a narrow waterway, it's the mill runoff, I think. The building on the right is the mill, the area of land it sits on is, effectively, an island, you must cross water to get to it, behind is the mill pond, there is often a heron in there; however, ther's no way to approach without it seeing you, and no where to get a view with a telephoto, so no pics.
Bread was delicious, of courseSmile
