Suggestive image, it's like the photo of a dream or a remembering.
27 Sep 2009 5:55am
Like a dream... beautiful....
c'est une belle histoire de fantome !
27 Sep 2009 6:15am
I love this wonderful, soft, evocative image...The tones, the composition and treatment is stunning! Is the soft focus a result of panning with a slow shutter or do you achieve this in post?
27 Sep 2009 6:16am
Very creative shot, I like it! As previously mentioned, it does have a dream like quality to it.
27 Sep 2009 6:28am
muy buena. felicitaciones
27 Sep 2009 6:47am
It's really artistic. Nice processing.
27 Sep 2009 7:47am
She's part of the sea and shadows and slowly goes out towards light and another land on her decided pace... Love your silverish mirror, Sharon** Have a very sweet sunday ~

Love the soft image, as in a dream! Nice processing!
27 Sep 2009 8:50am
I like the mood, and the grain of the processing. The human figure is definitive for the history of the picture. An image that makes dream. Congratulations.
27 Sep 2009 8:52am
Real...unreal ... life...dream ...
Very, very nice shot !!!

Beautiful shot! Great post processing
27 Sep 2009 9:14am
Between reality and dream, i love the mood, blurred atmosphere and lines, and the way she's running toward her destiny yearningly.
27 Sep 2009 10:22am
Absolutely magical. Like an unconscious consciousness...a dreamy reality. Wonderful!!!
27 Sep 2009 10:40am
Yes, I agree with Paco, Marcie and Sydney: this is an image of a dream. I very like the atmosphere. Do you know Castro Prieto? he's a spanish photogragh (see his series "Extraños").

Sharon, you should see me running out of words: One got to love this. This is my absolute favourite of your beauties. Got it all: Freedom, loneliness, movement, melancholy, joy ... the list could go on & on. An outstanding composition & a hell of a photograph! Love it, love it, really love it. Thank you. All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

Wonderful composition. Marvelous light. Very ethereal.
I like this blur, this grain, the light. An intriguing photo. Really beautiful! Bravo!
27 Sep 2009 1:46pm
A strong, impressionistic beach shot. Very appealing image.

i really like the softness here - like looking through slightly frosted glass.
28 Sep 2009 1:03am
I love the light and shadows - and the misty-ness of the shot. It's as if you have captured a memory...

And the Sea opened her arms to welcome her Feet.........................
28 Sep 2009 6:37am
A shadow slides on the sea.... Dream or reality !
28 Sep 2009 6:47am
just between dreams and reality ! a deep pic
28 Sep 2009 8:31am
This has a Hawaii vibe to it, I don't know why. I think it's because the girl's gesture- her hip kinda dips to one side- that makes me think of the Hula dance :) Nice dreamy & lazy shot. Thanks for subscribing my Posterous blog as well, Sharon :)
28 Sep 2009 9:41am
Dynamic image those that you give to us. The movement and that grain, bring about a dynamic reaction. The black and white one supports the taking perfectly
28 Sep 2009 10:54am
Wonderful smudgework . . there is a strange sense that the image is alive and developing before our eyes !
28 Sep 2009 10:58am
Wonderful contrasts and very dream like. here's something very sad about it though that I can't quite put my finger on but I'm sure it has nothing to do with the lone woman. Nice work anyway.
28 Sep 2009 11:02am
interesante efecto! me encanta esta fotografia
28 Sep 2009 11:19am
Brilliant. Framing, compo, light, contrast, post process....
28 Sep 2009 11:48am
I like the processing on this and the texture you have in the image - the composition with the person walking is great also! Very nice work!
28 Sep 2009 12:53pm
I like the running figure, great shot.

Excellent blurry pic.
Love how female figure is joined into the scene. All elements linked by the blur.
30 Sep 2009 5:59pm
Remembrance of other days; now always there,
melancholic and just a little out of frame.
30 Sep 2009 6:05pm
Oh so dreamy :) Even before reading the other comments I perceived this lovely scene as dreamy. The grain and light are excellent ingredients of the feeling here too.
30 Sep 2009 9:44pm
This is brilliant.
