Magnifique une composition très interessante surtout vu le titre.

The wonderful angle of this shot truly gives the feeling that this person could reach up and touch the sky. Lovely black and white and appropriate title.

beautiful shot! I love the framing and perspective here, the lighting and shadows are here are just perfect!
This is...... no words.
I just LOVE that. Facing him (his back, since he's fishing it seems ?), in distance, in such a great symetry, the fence like a double road, an inviting take-off strip... Backlight is a splendor as well as the texture in the foreground - i can here you walk on those boards. It cracks beautifully... Another masterSharonpiece here, and a superb way of beginning a week i wish you more than nice*

And I hope he did touched the sky! :-)

poetic image, love it
13 Sep 2010 8:07am
Love the pov and angle. Like a stairway to heaven.
13 Sep 2010 8:09am
I love your framing, angle of view and perspective with the silhouette in back light on the beautiful clouds ! a melancholy mood as I love !
13 Sep 2010 9:38am
All he has to do is reach. Very poetic.
13 Sep 2010 10:59am
This one is amazing, love how you've been able to fit all those elements together. A picture you can look at in a different way each time.
13 Sep 2010 11:20am
An outstanding capture Sharon! The angle definitely gives one a sense that he can touch the sky! Bravo and 5-stars!!! ;-)
13 Sep 2010 12:07pm
Another great shot!
13 Sep 2010 1:10pm
but there would rest some meters to jump.
There's a ray of light directed to him, that must a be a sign of hope. So it's all in all a hopeful image :-)
13 Sep 2010 1:54pm

Sharon! Amazing angle.
14 Sep 2010 1:35am
Great composition and point of view!
14 Sep 2010 2:48am
To have seen that scenery with the light and those imposive clouds must have felt like toching the sky for him. Even if he, not even with that fishing-rod, didn´t reach up to the sky, he must have got that feeling, if he really wanted it! Wonderful composition and storytelling, Sharon.
14 Sep 2010 4:47am
Great composition and b/w image for the thought of E.D. She was right, I think :)
14 Sep 2010 8:15am
Nice contrast. I like the lens flare too.
14 Sep 2010 9:24am
I like the contrast throughout the picture, the perspective is good too, good day
14 Sep 2010 10:37am
Lovely B/W treatment and light quality in this and the previous shot.

Perfect composition and nice tones. I like the texture of the ground, too.

15 Sep 2010 10:53pm
It's all happening in our minds. Free to dream & build up visions we#re able to touch the sky. And your art makes me feel like touching the sky. Again & again. Thanks for this pearl. A terrific composition. All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.
16 Sep 2010 6:27am
A spectacular perspective enhanced even more by the choice of tonality! A strong message, too...
