[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken down at the Okura river estuary as the sun was going down.
I learned a valuable lesson with this shot - don't go to estuaries in the evening wearing shorts when the 'mossies' are in season.

1/80sec (Not as sharp as it should be)
Desaturated and run through Noiseware

Once bitten twice shy .... Nice photo Jack, this shot must have been taken looking inland, my daughter lives here. Great use of silhouettes.

Jack hi

superbe shot with spectacular contrast and mood! very dramatic colors and silhouette! i like it a lot!

tfs and regards

Hi Jack

Fantastic silhouette, very well seen and freezed :)

i like how the shadow of a person is within the frame.

very well done


Great sillouette work. The swimmer stands out in the middle of lots of nature. The sky could use a little more light, but this is just a personnal POV.
Cheers, Wellington

You have my sympathy...re the mozzies Jack.
Nice mood created here, the bather is in just the place for good composition, well done.
I wonder how clean his feet would be once back on dry land...
