Another great monochrome from you, bluechameleon. I need to just stare at your portfolio for hours to grok what you're seeing: because I know that I can learn from you.

Like how you place the building in the back and contrast the people on the jetty.
14 Apr 2009 5:29am
beautifully done. i love the various appearance of lines in this image...the obvious one in the center, the buildings in the background, the boat driving past, the waves...
14 Apr 2009 5:46am
du GRAND art !
14 Apr 2009 5:52am
What a beauty....love the waves rolling in!
14 Apr 2009 6:18am
beautiful bw!! I love the lines, the contrasts, and the waves! so nice! Which beach is this? english bay or Kits?
14 Apr 2009 6:25am
@wickedful: Thank you :)
Actually this is showing Ambleside in West Vancouver, but shot from the seawall.
Awesome work here blue! It takes courage to follow your own destiny! Few even recognize it when confronted.
14 Apr 2009 6:31am
I like the contrast between the buildings and the people near the beach. Nicely captured and processed.
14 Apr 2009 6:48am
Awesome b&w, beautifull framed as usual ... well done!
A superb composition! I like the light so selectively grazing a few buildings and the waves in the foreground languidly rolling in while woman on the left edge hurries to her rendezvous! Henry Miller was staple diet during my teens:)

Amazing B&W! Fantastic composition.
14 Apr 2009 7:24am
Impressive east game of planes and the detail of the figures is extraordinary
14 Apr 2009 7:39am
Stanley park i guess. Nice mood.
14 Apr 2009 7:45am
Feels like people are foraging against the backdrop of a desolate cityscape--dark image is great.
14 Apr 2009 8:01am
Why is it that one feels compelled to walk along such things (myself included)? They make for a good image anyway, I like the high contrast, super work.
14 Apr 2009 8:07am
What an excellent composition. Just great!
14 Apr 2009 8:38am
Excellent composition, well spotted and captured!
14 Apr 2009 9:05am
I like the way you have composed this image keeping the focus on the foreground action while still maintaining some part of the cityscape.
14 Apr 2009 9:17am
Good outtaken scene ...
14 Apr 2009 9:57am
Always this personal touch of yours ! Great shot again ! Are they fishing ?
14 Apr 2009 11:15am
@zOOm: Thank you Florence. No, I don't think they were fishing, it's not a usual spot for that. Just walking about perhaps...
Beautifully done Sharon! Bravo! ;-)
14 Apr 2009 12:05pm
must've been a warm day in Vancouver! Awsome composition and processing. I love the silhouetts, they really add interest here.
14 Apr 2009 1:01pm
@Cheryl: No, it was cold and windy over the weekend but at least no rain on this day :)
Nice compo using the breakwater.
Good B&W choice
Very well done
14 Apr 2009 1:42pm
So cool, derrière la ligne un horizon, puis un autre et encore un autre ... quel beau message !
14 Apr 2009 1:50pm
Excellent composition. I was wondering from the title if they were working or enjoying the day. Very nice work.
14 Apr 2009 2:24pm
The impression to walk on the water is evident !
I like this contrast enter the fragility of the man in front of the unlimitedness of the city !
14 Apr 2009 2:36pm
Wonderfully observed, Sharon
14 Apr 2009 2:50pm
Wonderful ! Love to see clear cityscape background ! Photos looks like sliced of cityscape and seascape ... Really great composition !
14 Apr 2009 2:55pm
What makes you a very good photographer, Sharon, is that not only your style is unique, but you always know what to shoot. You always take photos of the place where your processing would work the best. Great composition!
14 Apr 2009 3:10pm
A popular spot, maybe they are hand lining? best...jerry
14 Apr 2009 4:29pm
Nice pairing of the quote with this image. Really brings it to life!!
14 Apr 2009 4:38pm
A four part image, each having its own quality, very nicely offset by the rocks in the middle, what a great place to fish
14 Apr 2009 5:26pm
I wish I can be there because I am one of those who likes to discover what is up :) Seems like everyone is hard at finding something in the rocks... Nice (mysterious) shot.
14 Apr 2009 5:34pm
I love the contrast between the line of the town in the background and the line of wild world in the foreground, strong contrast and beautiful lighting !
14 Apr 2009 5:50pm
Another excellent seascape Silo it looks so peacful there :))
14 Apr 2009 6:02pm
This has definitely your signature. I could see many many photos here on A-3 but yours are unmistakable. Another superb work Sharon.
14 Apr 2009 6:04pm
Beautiful scene. I like the way you captured and framed the buildings in the horizon. Well done. It's a great b/w photo!
14 Apr 2009 6:38pm
image and movement, these people seem to seek something. This black and white makes me remember the films of investigative journalism ... well that is what evokes for me this beautiful photography.
14 Apr 2009 7:03pm
You have here a wonderful seascape, with these silhouettes going back and forth. The contrast between the sea and them is cool, they belong to the sea ;
I regret the disturbing buildings behind, they make me come back on earth after dreaming ;)
Perhaps cutting them will enhance the scene, or you "want" us to come back on earth and it's another story...
14 Apr 2009 7:04pm
@Phototherapy: I have another version...without the buildings, perhaps I will post that one as well at some point, so you may continue dreaming... :)
Love the marriage of nature/sea and cityscape, creates something strange and original thanks to your close framing ~
14 Apr 2009 7:28pm
Mysterious contrast between the town and the sea, the figures and the rocks ... Strange... well done !
14 Apr 2009 7:47pm
great mono, good detail
14 Apr 2009 8:13pm
Like the darkness in the tones, very soothing.
14 Apr 2009 8:48pm
these people seem to be enjoying being there. and you sure seem to be enjoying taking this photo. very nice processing!
14 Apr 2009 8:58pm
Excellent composition, well spotted and captured, love the silhouettes.
14 Apr 2009 9:47pm
You've captured just the right amount of highlight to make this sing ... brilliant ... ron
14 Apr 2009 11:10pm
Wonderful composition with the spacing of the line of men. Great shot.
14 Apr 2009 11:39pm
I'm going with Liang on this one. Your photos are what they are because in them you can see your enjoyment in taking them. Really nice!
15 Apr 2009 1:28am
what a strange setting - the seeming wilderness of rocks and water against the city. excellent image.
15 Apr 2009 1:31am
I feel the touch of Noir genre movies in your shots. That's one of my favorite genres.
15 Apr 2009 1:34am
Beautiful; that's a very cool line across the frame.
15 Apr 2009 2:47am
Outstanding ! Wonderful composition, contrast really good !
15 Apr 2009 4:39am
Wonderful mood in this group of photos! I love this processing and the B&W - great shot!
15 Apr 2009 4:48am
Great frame and terrific b/w. atmosphere.
15 Apr 2009 6:12pm
Very bold composing this so that the jetty bisects the frame. It's unconventional being "top heavy", too. Like it.
17 Apr 2009 2:13am
The composition is outstanding! Bravo
17 Apr 2009 4:13pm
This one is quite surreal. You'd think that people would be in the city! But I do understand the escape walking a thin line...
