Nice story line with all the folded chairs suggesting how this is going to end.
Aussie: I hadn't even thought of that Martin, I just liked the shadows from them.

.....sigh....Fabulous shot, I pictured myself sitting there and let my thoughts wonder off...
The shadows and lighting are wonderful, the light glare round the hair, just wonderful.
Aussie: I found this gem in my little book that I could have used for your skating collage Is het ijs sterk genoegom te schaatsen? lol

This is a wonderful image, Aussie. The light is fabulous.
Aussie: Thank you Chad. Saw lots of sheep in New Zealand lol
Focus is spot on the subject here with everything else with just the right softness. I like the long shadows too! Well captured.
Aussie: Thank you Alan

The lighting is just beautiful - I love the way it picks out the hair. A picture full of possible interpretations.

Aussie: Thank you Ingrid. One that I wanted to take as soon as I saw him sitting there.
The magic moment of the day. Wonderfully done!
Aussie: It was lovely and nice being on holiday and not rushed in any way.

Love the mood you've captured/created. Nice sense of serenity and peace.
Aussie: Thank you Marcie
You've certainly created a great mood here. You just wonder what he's thinking.
Aussie: If he could have seen behind him he may have been thinking what are tose two idiots taking my photo for. There was another guy there getting a few shots as well. We checked out each others equipment and smiled as they were both canons
A wonderful and magical shot Aussie. Technically perfect. Nice to have you back!
Aussie: Thank you Richard, it's nice to be back.
This is an absolute belter Aussie
Aussie: I'm trying Bill.

brilliant!

are those cobwebs i see under the top horizontal bar?

personally, i'd remove a bit of the foreground
Aussie: They are cobwebs, well spotted DrAW. I know I should/could/didn't crop tight enough but I loved the shadows made by the chairs.
I think this is one I will play with again, just to see. Thank you as always
A beautiful composition with this sitting silhouette.
I've not been right through SC today Aussie but if I see better than this I will be pleasantly surprised. well seen and taken.
Aussie: Thank you Brian. I was telling one of the guys from work about your lovely Sandringham shots and being English he just rubbished how I pronounced Sandringham.
Lovely. I'd remove some of the foreground as well. richard
Aussie: Oh Richard but then I would have my nice chair shadows. Yes I should have went tighter. Thanks Richard you know I always welcome any hints that help me to improve.
just tells what steadiness is perfectly, just a fascinating capture of the moment!!
Aussie: Thank you

Calming scene...easy for me to transport myself to his chair. Wonder what he's thinking about?
Aussie: If he had have known he could have been wondering why two total stranger were taking his photo. The other photographer and I checked out each others equipment and smiled. (both canons)
wonderful shot Aussie, sheer blisssmile well done indeed.
Aussie: Thanks Tim
Lovely composition and capture. Love the shadows and how he's illuminated by the light. Really Noice one.
Aussie: Your so Noice to visit and comment as well. lol
personally, I find the main subject a little too centered for my taste. I like a crop that's a little more offset, or tighter. An image with tones of potential!! I can see why it's popular.
The light on the hair is the most notable piece of this composition. B&W is a good choice given the light I am sure!
Cheers
Rob
Aussie: Thank you for dropping by and commenting. Constructive criticism is always welcome.
Wow! What can I say that hasn't been said already? It's beautiful! grin
