beautiful shot, I love the contrast here, and the use of the tree to frame the subject. I also like how the road leads the eye through the frame, and how the bench invites me to have a seat and admire your photograph :D

This is Zen at Best. A wonderful serenity with beautiful elements and harmony. Fire with light, Water with the sea, Air with the sky and the seagull and Earth on which you both stood.
GREAT PHOTOGRAPH. A MASTERFUL TAKE. A DEFINITE BEST!
Good Day To You Sharon.

I would like this on my wall for seeing it continuosly, for calming my mind whenever it needs it and giving to me an experience of beauty.
Have a perfect day !
11 Jan 2010 9:17am
great moment of contemplation ! I love the framing in curve with the beautiful tree, the strong contrast, the bright wet pavement !
11 Jan 2010 9:18am
Hermoso contraluz, melancolico, bello...
Un saludo :)
11 Jan 2010 9:19am
superbe compo et quel noir, puissant et profond.
11 Jan 2010 9:32am
Love the "shining bone" of the road, like a spinal column of light right in the middle ! Even the rim of the road seems like the crest on a dinosaur back ! And the man is walking (arriving, frontally ?) calmly his own way...
Fab lighting, caressing branches, bright softness on the horizon - an image to dream about the whole week ! Have a very sweet one*

A picture for contemplation, marvellous light and tones and a wonderful composition.
The hollow man associating to Eliots text makes me a little confused, what was his meaning with that poem and conception and how do that connect with your harmonious picture. I must come back several times to this stunning picture to reflect. An to continue with The Hollow Men:
"Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow
Life is very long"

These trimmed silhouettes enchant to me, the composition is perfect
11 Jan 2010 10:10am
Wonedrful lines. Many very nice details in this shot. the light is great too!!

Perfect lighting and perfect composition!!! This is beautiful!
11 Jan 2010 11:29am
This is so nice, great tone. The highlight of the bench contrasting against the silhouette makes this a fantastic composition.
11 Jan 2010 12:27pm
Beautiful tones and contrasts. I like how the tree frames the image also a nice title to go with the image. Well done.
11 Jan 2010 12:34pm
Beautiful pairing of photo and poetry Sharon! Yet another masterpiece...... ;-)
11 Jan 2010 1:10pm
Lovely composition. Interesting placement of the human figure off to the side away from the path. Using B/w processing adds to the impact of the photo.
11 Jan 2010 1:27pm
woot! awesome composition on this one, the diagonal tree branch man adds a plus, like someone as an overcast. the silhouette figure must be the hollow man lol. nice!
11 Jan 2010 1:32pm
.... including the bird on the right! Strong calmness, with great compo and framing. Excellent.

You've found a beautiful bend. The bird flying is a wonderful bonus for me.
11 Jan 2010 3:29pm
That light on the water is so sweet. The curving tree and curving path are excellent.
11 Jan 2010 3:35pm
Stunning Image Sharon ~ love the light on the ocean + the bird adds to the shot
( Stanley Park ? )
11 Jan 2010 3:49pm
@LESLIE: Thanks Leslie. Yes, this is the seawall, it runs along the outside of Stanley Park.
Good composition and tonality. I like the contribution of the reflection on the sea.
11 Jan 2010 3:53pm
Amazing details of trees and surface. Also lights and shadows are...!

11 Jan 2010 4:34pm
Stanley Park is a very special and significant location to myself and my wife, and I love to spend time there with my camera, though never have I captured a mood and beauty there as elegantly as you, Sharon. Simply awe inspiring photography.
11 Jan 2010 4:51pm

A beautiful shot !!!! Well done !!!
11 Jan 2010 8:02pm
C'est vraiment un très beau NB
11 Jan 2010 8:04pm
I love the curve of the road repeated by the trees above and how the man is going his own way, he seems to be so attracted by the sea that he's about to leave the road... or is he hypnotized by this mangificient light from the horizon ? Sweet and luminous sensations like in very beautiful dream... love this shot !!
11 Jan 2010 8:11pm
Beautiful framing. It's a gorgeous backlight plenty of info.
11 Jan 2010 8:44pm
Hollow, maybe - but heavy with meaning. A haunting image.

I feel like a hollow man sometimes. :( Fantastic shot, Sharon. You somehow manage to be in the right place at the exact right time all the time! This is another favorite.

12 Jan 2010 1:06pm
the bright dust above the sea gives it that special magic touch -
12 Jan 2010 3:16pm
A very attractive image. I especially like the sweep of the tree and the curve of the reflection on the walkway. The fellow looking to sea completes the image. Very well done.
12 Jan 2010 3:39pm
beautiful silhouette and beautiful lonely mood
12 Jan 2010 3:51pm
Very nice composition. The sweep of the shore echoed by the highlights in the path and the curve of the tree make a high-impact image.

the world in silhouette.
