OCOLOY Day 9: Quiet Reflections

In just a few weeks time, the pavement will be crowded with visitors, the dock will be lined with parked cars and the moorings will be packed with visiting boats. In these early days of the new year though, there is a chance to appreciate the charm of the Le Vieux Port de Dinan looking not too different from what it would have been like 200 years ago.

Another from my visit on Thursday and sooc.

Can I encourage you to view this on black...
another beauty...loving your posts...fav

Nice receding line of the road. Reflections look nice too.

Beautiful view, pic!

I love visiting the summer places in the winter. There is a quiet about them that you have captured very well here.

What a lovely scene, looks very peaceful.
January 9th, 2016  
I'm guessing this is a charming place to visit at any time.

Excellent shot, great reflections and all that. What I like the most though is the "feel" of the shot...not that I'm making sense (less than usual anyway)

great reflection

The title says it all. Well composed and shot.
January 10th, 2016  
Great comp..like the balance of the reflection against reality..
January 10th, 2016  
Very peaceful!
January 10th, 2016  
looks an enticing place
January 10th, 2016  
Lovely scene.

Richard, do you think the sky is too bright? : )
January 10th, 2016  
Wonderful in b and with all the sharp details

Exactly what @jgpittenger Jane said!
And BTW, your insight about 365 as social network site for photographers hit the nail on the head. I had an 'aha moment' when I read that -- it's exactly why so many of us who 'completed' our projects are reluctant to leave the site!

I just read your info about you and 365...so well said and I too am struggling to find a way to both be here, post and comment, as well as having a life. Being also a septinigerian, every moment feels precious and making mindless comments not in alignment with savor in my one precious life

What a beautiful sense of place. Such a warm way of expressing community!
January 10th, 2016  
Very nice and looks great n b&w.

Wonderfully peaceful shot - love the clear reflections in the water. Great on black background.

Spot the serendipity! White car in front of the house with the colombage. I wonder if car manufacturers and their publicity gurus have given any thought to advertise their black and white cars in this way.

@tskok101 Yes Tiensang it probably is, but that's the shade it was and as I'm not processing at the moment (all the images I'm posting are sooc) - that's the shade it has to stay! Thanks, as always, for commenting.

Thinking about that edge at the top I had a flash on cut-outs, as if the lower half of the picture had been, like decoupage. I'm growing fond of people-less street shots, wondering what could be going on in those houses (perhaps nothing?)

Wow...so very quiet indeed. I think I make out a single pair of pedestrians. Very nicely composed, quite refreshing that you departed from a common symmetrical composition for the reflection.
January 10th, 2016  
So very pretty and lovely reflections. (My son spoilt us with the 1970 :) - it was delicious!)
January 10th, 2016  
Great capture and neat angle on the building...great reflections
January 10th, 2016  
With your influence I keep trying to love b&w. I can't help thinking how great this would be in color. I'll keep trying, Richard.

@tunia Well Tunia, it's obviously not compulsory to like B&W and some images don't work as well as they would do in colour. You would normally decide in post-processing which treatment was best. In my case, with my rather restrictive challenge, I'm shooting B&W in camera so I am only capturing scenes which work as a B&W image. How do I know? Well I'm using a hybrid camera with an electronic viewfinder in which I see the image in B&W so I can see straight-away what's liable to work and what isn't. Like everything in this hobby, it becomes easier with practice. Thank you for all your support and comments which I appreciate more than you might imagine.

You're right! Viewing on black makes it really pop. Wonderful detail and reflections.
January 11th, 2016  
Such an amazing scene!
January 11th, 2016  
Great reflections, and a vintage feel created in this image Richard
January 11th, 2016  
Even more stunning on black. I'm really enjoying your challenge as I struggle with what makes a good b&w image. Fav

Fav..It was 2000 I was here, thinking it was time I returned, snap some of these great places before you have them all gone..
