[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It would be a sin to have stayed home lying down on the couch gaining more weight like I do so many Sundays as I miss out on nature's beautiful moments.

This shot was taken today at Nazaré beach. The ocean was very agitated. Some of the waves started building up way above the level of the water at a very far distance.

I cropped a small margin at the top and bottom, auto-contrasted, sharpened (maybe too much as my vision often deceives me), added highlights on a few spots on the water and revived colors.

Thank you for viewing.

Hi Lurdes
I like the zoom effect and these numerous birds.


salut lurdes,
la beauté sauvage et pure
la liberté dans les aille des oiseaux

Hi Lurdes
Purely out of interest, I've just read your intro.
I'm sure this isn't a luck shot, I think you have a phoographer's eye.
In my opinion, as one amaeur to another, this is an excellent shot. Composed and exposed very well. I like the silhouette of the man and he lighting on the nearest bird.
No, not lucky.

Hello Lurdes

Thank goodness you did not sin. I like your view of what the scene had to offer. Awesome image of daily life.

Hi Lurdes
super shot - the 1/2500sec shutter speed was perfect

Nice image, Lurdes.
Good composition and I especially like the contralight shining through the bird's wings.

Hello Lurdes,a captivating title that draws the viewer in! Asking what is the sin?
I like the light over the sea, and the way that the man and some of the birds are silhouetted and some are not.
The grey misty bg helps to keep our eyes focused on the fg.Good work.
Tfs, regards Jean.
