Solitude. Very nice capture.
Probably how tranquility looks like in heaven...
I'd only suggest a gradient darkening to the bottom for leading in the picture smoother.
I love the way this is composed and cropped, including a lot of foreground and the right to left direction. Had you used the inverse orientation, I don't think it would have near the impact.
Sharon, this is lovely. The sepia that you chose adds warmth to your image, whereas black and white would not serve as well.
Agreed. Oh, how I miss my old labbies. One raised my children and the other I rescued to live out her old age. Both lived to be 15 1/2 years old.And I'm pretty certain that if God has a dog, it's a Lab.
I'm not ready for heaven yet but a beautiful relaxing photo.
Thanks everyone. I really had my doubts about this one and almost didn't post.
The dog was a Husky pup btw!
Brian...heaven can wait!
A bit of a departure from the other work I've seen of yours but as always you knock my socks off! My impression is that you are an artist with a vision of her own but a willingness to take risks. Do you imagine the final image prior to squeezing the shutter or at some point in post processing; or is it an organic process that at some point produces an image that speaks to you?
Hi Daisy. I like it a lot; especially the shapes of the water and land. Dark lighting really brings out all the lines in this image. For me, the person walking and the dog are almost insignificant.
Thank you karm and Andrew.
Andrew, I think I just shoot to a mood and with my 'people shots' it is almost always about a sense of sadness, isolation or loss.. I look for good shapes rather than too much detail because I am most likely to use the people figuritively. When I go to edit a shot I first take it to extremes of contrast and exposure then I know what I have got to work with and the rest of the process is pretty organic . I hope that makes some kind of sense and thank you so much for asking.
