Great capture with beautiful light over the ocean. I love the quote and your symbolic representation with the fence.

love the light, the concept, the composition, the message, love it all

Du Buren à la plage! J'adore

Beautiful light and composition.
The fence has such drama and simplicity,
and the texture of the sand makes me think
I could bend down and scoop up a handful right from here.

Oh how i LOVE this image - another one of my fav in your body of work, Sharon : love the fence broken right where we can see furthermore, the white stripe of bright light with the tiny hut is splendid, the waves in the sand in the foreground and the "color" of your deep sky. A fabulous land you create, love your conception beyond misconception. Brava*
27 May 2010 7:33am
its really dark and impressive
27 May 2010 8:20am
Very nice and interesting!
27 May 2010 9:08am
Very good capture, I like very much the composition of lines so suggestive
27 May 2010 9:33am
It´s a very expressive picture. Someone who has broken out from the fictitious and/or the real world. Just as in Pessoas fictitious worlds, with help from his heteronyms. A great capture and quote.

Beautiffully graphic !! Nice B & W shot !
27 May 2010 11:19am
You have created a powerful image Sharon! Dark and foreboding yet there is a glimmer of light and hope. Does the fence keep us out or does it hold us back? Bravo!!! ;-)
27 May 2010 11:31am
Defects. We usually dislike defects, but they are inevitable in our life. If they are beautiful, we don't have to dislike them.
27 May 2010 11:39am
Beautifully graphic. I love the glare off of the water.
27 May 2010 12:12pm
This is a fabulous photo. The framing, tone, focus, everything comes together to create a story that draws the viewer in. You've done a wonderful job with this one.
27 May 2010 12:30pm
I love the quote you associated with the image. Now I see the fragments of the fence as one's imagination--leaving empty spaces and gaps to fill in when necessary.
27 May 2010 12:53pm
Beautiful moonlit scene. I like how you framed it, with the view through the broken section of fence.
27 May 2010 1:03pm
Great mono and graphic ! Very symbolic image ! Nicely selected quote that helps others to develop their imagination and write a story ;)
27 May 2010 1:23pm
Some very smart positioning here . . makes for a sort of invitation to trespass somehow.
27 May 2010 1:33pm
an excellent title . . . it really makes you think.
27 May 2010 2:05pm
The waves and grains in the foreground sand are beautiful, and the broken fence adds lots of interest.
27 May 2010 2:06pm
Hello Sharon and many thanks for your lovely, sweet com !
That's a brilliant composition, where horizontal and vertical lines collide... where black collides with white/silver... the fence evoks a protected place, the door of a magic/fairy world somehow... I'm still a dreamer, you see... and your photographs always inspire me.
27 May 2010 2:16pm
thats a corker of a composition, the sea as the strip of white balances the whole image perfectly.
27 May 2010 2:51pm
Alfred Hitchcock eat your heart out!! very dark and bleak, i luv it ;)
27 May 2010 2:54pm
j'aime ! Bon après midi
27 May 2010 3:11pm
Wonderful lines and textures. Love your point-of-view and framing.
27 May 2010 3:16pm
What a fantastic quotation to go along with the image. I like that the substance is questionable (water or sand). Great light over the horizon.
27 May 2010 4:14pm
oh, wow.. you've framed this scene beautifully.. excellent shot! :D
27 May 2010 5:15pm
nicely seen. really like the result.

Sea Side as I like....................Excellent,Sharon...
27 May 2010 8:17pm
Beautiful BW and composition I like this space who allows to go through this barrier
27 May 2010 8:18pm
The texture of the image describes the atmosphere perfectly.
27 May 2010 8:25pm
Someone has entered the beach, but they are nowhere to be seen. Nice composition.
27 May 2010 10:17pm
The perfect title for this beautiful shot. i like the contrast and lines
27 May 2010 11:29pm
Nice composition, wonderful lines and textures!
27 May 2010 11:42pm
I like the horizontal and vertical lines...so captivating.
28 May 2010 12:57am
An excellent quote and brilliant image.
28 May 2010 3:23am
That page is not about me but it brought back the atmosphere I captured last summer by the sea with my "Achromatic horizon". Yours is lovely with that graphic idea that we can't imprisoned what's so immense and free at large like the sea and its immediate surrounding. The black fence with its broken tips as a window that permits the eye to fly over and bathe its look in the horizon. The fence in my interpretation playing the role of our eyelashes, mid-closed to be able to see through and embrace the space as a freedom to look for.
Beautiful allegory. A five stars to you my dear.
28 May 2010 4:46am
@Stéphane Thémèze: Thank you Stéphane for your wonderful words and thoughts. It's always such a pleasure to here the interpretations of others as it's encouraging and helps me to see in a different way as well. I carry these words with me on my next shoot in order to see things differently, hoping to create something completely unique.
cheers to you too Stéphane!
You are an artist, Sharon. Beautifully seen and captured.

28 May 2010 10:51am
I like it!
How splendid! Look at the ground!
28 May 2010 12:04pm
Esthétiquement parfait !
28 May 2010 2:45pm
A hole in the fence. A path to light, a path to freedom.
28 May 2010 5:17pm
28 May 2010 6:07pm
really liked the way your perspective shows on this, great composition!
28 May 2010 10:04pm
absolutely impressive just wonderful shot so dramatic so poetic
29 May 2010 9:11am
this is great like an opening that's not there
29 May 2010 9:50am
Very nice création
29 May 2010 2:27pm
(just my great pleasure to come back & admire it each day - really a marvel).
29 May 2010 3:16pm
Often the mis perfections are what makes life interesting and worth living, would be so boring if everything was perfect, Superb shot
29 May 2010 3:38pm
Very well seen this broken barrier.
29 May 2010 7:19pm
An excellent composition and a wonderful issue! I love the words of Pessoa!
29 May 2010 9:02pm
Love the composition and it relays a sense of adventure to me.
30 May 2010 12:37am
you make it look like a monster from the deep just crashed thru there lol love it!!
30 May 2010 1:41pm
i like this a lot. especially your choice of where to place the broken fence pieces. i also like that it's hard to tell which is ocean and which is land and which is sky. the light band in the distance looks so much like the chinook arches we get at the bottom of a heavy sky that it took me a while to realize it's ocean instead of sky.
30 May 2010 6:33pm
Very nice composition.
30 May 2010 8:11pm
I like the heavy contrast in this and the broken fence pattern really creates a lot of visual interest for me! Awesome work on this one!
30 May 2010 8:46pm
Beautiful picture against the light. I like this broken fence.
30 May 2010 11:44pm
31 May 2010 7:26am
I love absolutely this window you created through the fence, Sharon. A mental one and a salutary one, for sure... Again, thanks A LOT to share so sensitive and clever images.
31 May 2010 11:56am
like a broken piece in our life, a powerful image !
31 May 2010 12:16pm
excellent title for this meaningful image!
31 May 2010 1:07pm
Well captured and very nice processing!
1 Jun 2010 1:52pm
sweet decay, great seascape...the tone is just amazing...
1 Jun 2010 3:26pm
A stunning composition with fabulous processing...but I must congratulate you for your 'eye'...the 'sea' of sand beyond seems to be a continuation of the sand in the foreground, divided by the fence! One is stimulated to give thought to this wonderful image!
2 Jun 2010 6:51am
I love it
2 Jun 2010 6:42pm
abstrait, conceptuel, parfait, du grand là, superbe ^^
4 Jun 2010 12:29pm
Beautiful B&W and frame that fits the picture.
Good job on this one.
5 Jun 2010 3:42am
brilliant photo Sharon!
7 Jun 2010 4:18am
oh man! fantastic shot... !
9 Jun 2010 2:06am
I find the broken fence to be really 'dynamic', feels like it is being shaken up by an invisible force.
10 Jun 2010 9:35pm
12 Jun 2010 8:20pm
I almost didn't want to comment on this image since so many others had already. However it can never hurt to reinforce kudos when due. You've taken and presented a great pic that is open to so many different interpretations. Personally I'm taken by the concept of a fence that, in addition to being inconsistent in its coverage and having a couple of bits floating in air, apparently fails to do what a fence conceptually should do (i.e. keep something in or out). Of course its most likely not trying to do that to water but I love the idea nonetheless.
