[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken in the early morning while taking a walk on the beach. I happened to notice the man fishing in the surf and the 2 parachutes with folks parasailing in the distance and thought it might make for a good pic. The clouds were blocking the sun however; it provided a nice color for my capture.

For this I shot at 1/400, f13., ISO 160 and 75mm on 70-200 tamron. In PP I enhanced color with Nik HDR software then cropped, sharpened and resized. Thanks for looking and have a great week.

Kevin this is wonderful. Great composition, beautiful tones and mood. The parachutes are a perfect touch of color. Gorgeous. TFS, Lori

Hi Kevin,
Beautiful sunrise nicely presented and composed with great tone of colors and light,
Excellent point of view and details,
Beautiful dramatic sky and actions shot with the parachute and the fisherman,

Hello Kevin,

what a great catch of this fisherman with the parachutes and boat in the background adding elements of interest.
Effective off centred composition with the silhouette formed fisher.
I like the warm hues and lighting.

Hi Kevin,
I like the force of this image!
The fisherman seems to defy the elements! Very good exemple of threatening weather with the wind blowing on both sea and sky! Your HDR work adds drama at the image! Very nicely done!

Hi Kevin..nice shot...your diagonal line of the water works nicely to bring us into the shot...excellent tones and light.

Hi Kevin...
Nice shot with so nice scene...
Nice composition...

Hello Kevin,

This is a shot that feels interesting to linger over. After a while, there is an impression that the fisherman is trying to catch the paragliders!
Lovely composition, with a strong f/g triangle and the fisherman well positioned.
There is movement from the waves and forboding in the sky. Fine effects from the HDR.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Kevin

My favorite time in my life is on the beach at sunrise. Nice tones and capture here. I hope to be at the beach here in a few months. Nice work. The horizon is to dead center for me, but alot going on in the image. I wish I was there. keep thedm coming from the beach


Hello Kevin ,
What a nice shot ... and good work ! Great composition too .... Ernest .

Hi Kevin,

This is a wonderful composition full of mood. The pink tones are superb. Composition is excellent, the image has everything to capture the imagination; the solitary fisherman, the parachutes in that interesting cloud formation and even a boat on the horizon. What a lovely place.



It's beautiful capture, TFS
Have a good day
