[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [French]
The Yarra River flows from Mt Baw Baw through Melbourne (242km) and is naturally this yucky brown colour from the eroded clay soils. It wasn't always so. Up until the mid-1800s the water was clear but the intensive land clearing and development has resulted in the prescence of microscopic clay particles. It is clean though and is supposed to be one of the cleanest capital city rivers in the world and fish can be found in it. At least in springtime the green contrasts quite nicely with it.

composition colors are very good

Toni, A nice landscape shot. The focus is soft, and I agree that it gives that impressionism look to it.

Appréciation personnelle pour la photo: superbe photo.
Bon impact visuel.
Pertinence de la photo pour le site: excellente.
Appréciation personnelle pour la note: complète.
Merci, Antonio.

Je trouve le cadrage et les couleurs parfaits.
Juste un petit reproche concernant la netteté, mais c'est probablement dû au passage au scanner.
Je rencontre aussi souvent ce problème.

Hi Toni, great show of colours here, especially how the water looks purple close to the shore. And look at all those onion flowers - weeds really, but they do make a nice photo. Well done.

Toni, at first, I had the feeling the river was pink.

Well composed shot with nice colors.
