    I like #4 & #5 because the people are separated from the background and attention is very firmly focused upon them. I think that in #1 and #2, the people are a bit lost in the overall scene.

    Interesting set of shots Greg. I think you've captured the relaxed atmosphere rather well. And your timing was spot on with #6.

    If I were a fisherman, #7 would be the way to go for me

    Hi Greg. I would return to where you shot no.2. Those rocks are interesting. You might find an interesting pattern of fisherman on them.

    Thanks for comments guys.

    Donald I agree about the first two: I did want to portray the people against the local urban context, but I can see now that it is overwhelming them a bit. With the 4th one, I was watching the 'patterns' that were appearing with the couple's fishing rods.

    Dave, that guy in #7 seemed to be just turning his back on the world and doing his own thing. I think that vessel is pedal-powered btw.

    Karm: #2 was lucky. I was at the opposite end of the break water when I happened to catch a glimpse of colour between a small gap in the gabions. I poked the lens into it got that shot.
