A brilliant work on lights and shadows Sharon. The ocean likes mercury or silver. Great crop as well.

Gorgeous B&W. Looks like you caught someone in an unguarded moment deep in thought.

Geez, this is a heartening treatment for my morning ! Love the man (his outfit), the dark "fabric" of seashore (yummy) and the large part you let to Whiteness ! So many feelings in an apparently simple shot... One of my fav here ! (and i even can hear the clip-clap-clop of the water :)
2 Aug 2009 6:43am
Beautiful curved line ! I like the man's pose, too.
2 Aug 2009 6:50am

Superb capture !
2 Aug 2009 8:58am
a light and shadow composition which is very pleasing. I love the loneliness of that man.
2 Aug 2009 10:42am
beautiful - almost like a painting.
Beautiful high-key shot. Loneliness and peace all the same...

A man between dream and reality, night and day, looking for his way through water and sand... Contrasts and treatment really convey the impression to wade in a kind of... swamp, water nearly looks like oil - a beach afrter black tide... (we all struggle in a kind of swamp, but sometimes with joy ! :) really like this beautiful and powerful picture (i could write that each time i come back here)

...and the walk is a meditation. best...jerry

Terrific composition. The processing is superb; it definitely creates the right mood. Love the quote.
2 Aug 2009 2:26pm
Absolutly wonderful strong contrast. It feels well the loneliness of this man at the immensity of the sea. Great one!
2 Aug 2009 2:31pm
Wonderful moody image. Reminds me of a charcoal/pastel sketch. Love the swirls and shapes the water forms.
2 Aug 2009 2:37pm
he still seems a bit tentative, i'd like to shout out to him "get in the water already!" :D great shot! :)
2 Aug 2009 3:09pm
What beautiful mood has been captured and is being conveyed! The light, the contrast, the patterns, the forms, the composition and the body expression of the man... all these were blended perfectly! One of my recent favs!
2 Aug 2009 3:14pm
Impactante tratamiento de la imagen! el hombre estará pensando en sus cosas.
2 Aug 2009 3:15pm
Great capture, I love the b/w conversion it makes a phantastic atmosphere !
2 Aug 2009 4:02pm
The high contrasts give a special mood, very powerful ! I love these topics, as usual by you, contemplation, thoughts, loneliness.. great !
2 Aug 2009 4:10pm
man is often faced with loneliness, facing the ocean it gives a wonderful result! Your post processing is sublime!
2 Aug 2009 4:25pm
I come back cauz' I love this one too much ! Yum-yum my eyes swallow that B&W up-up-up ! (like the top ot his shoe)
2 Aug 2009 5:13pm
wonderful b/w composition
2 Aug 2009 6:31pm
Great b&w treatment and composition.
2 Aug 2009 6:52pm
you're right about the high contrast. I like the way the darkest and lightest areas of the image also have very different textures--the water and the sand. wonderful capture.
3 Aug 2009 1:44am
a very moving image Sharon
3 Aug 2009 2:43am
Lovely strong shot!
Love the processing - it's suits the image so well, spot-on.

Solitude by the sea- beautiful capture. I hope the man has also captured some dinner as well ;)
3 Aug 2009 7:30am

Beautifully meditative and awash with light
3 Aug 2009 10:58am
a very great photo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3 Aug 2009 11:56am
The sea has a special fascination for most of us, and you have captured this in his pose. Beautifully processed.
3 Aug 2009 11:59am
It's his thoughtful expression, posture, what entertains my eyes and my thoughts too. What will he be thinking of? Pondering decissions? Life is so hard nowadays! Wading before sunset keeps me alive...you've catptured such a special moment!
3 Aug 2009 12:26pm
Very good BW work!
3 Aug 2009 12:56pm
I love the contrast here.
3 Aug 2009 1:04pm
Hat, man, sea...nice contrast to this beautiful portrait
3 Aug 2009 2:56pm
such an emotive picture. great idea of high contrast, I think it just magnified the emotions produced by the scene.
3 Aug 2009 3:44pm
Wonderful light here. Love the composition too.
3 Aug 2009 3:56pm

3 Aug 2009 8:11pm

3 Aug 2009 9:01pm
I feel that you'll leave us tomorrow, that's why I dared to come back again and say a lil'goodbye to you, dear wading guy ~
3 Aug 2009 9:59pm
love your use of quotations to articulate the photo. this one is so dramatic it tells me such an engaging story about a lonely person. nice!
4 Aug 2009 12:31am
Everything has been said, I just love this composition.
4 Aug 2009 10:24am
I like the melancholy feel to this. Seems like a cross between photography and artwork. I like that.
4 Aug 2009 2:56pm
Excellent! The picture is very melancholy. Nice processing.
6 Aug 2009 5:32pm
Beautiful picture, great contrast and treatment, full of emotions... One can feel the loneliness of this man, his melancholy... Well done !
