[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I liked the silhouettes of both the fisherman & the seagulls. The unusual wavy pattern on the sandbank at low tide also caught my eye. Ganghwa-do (island) is at the mouth of the Han-gang (River) off the west coast of South Korea. Time exposure of about 2 seconds. Camera rested on a railing.

Hi Chris,
What a fabulous warm cast on this beach!
Great old golden-reddish cast on the nice slightly agitated water.
Beautiful silhouettes of the fisherman and the birds.
An agreeable high POV! Well seen.
Good artistic impression!

Hi Chris,

Oh my goodness, this is simply awesome capture, my friend!

I like the colors here, the colors of the reflected light, a great play between the light and shadows which in turn brings great mood and harmony into the capture. The sharpness and POV are well done too.
Superb composition!

best wishes,

Hi Chris - Amazingly strong graphic representation here. Beautifully warm colors, too.

Hello, Chris -
I had to open the thumbnail to really understand this image, but the payoff was great! The golden tones on the water and on the folded layers of beach are amazing, as is the silhouette of the lone fisherman. Wonderful play with light and shadows, very warm and inviting feel to the image. Excellent!
