Like peeking at the world through a microscope, staring at those humans as viruses. Excellent dof, from up-close details on the ppl, all the way far in the distance. Seems like an endless beach. Fantastic shot. Bravo!

Very good Alex. Good composition and point of view. Black and White colours works great on that.
Well done.

Prachtig weerom, Alex. Ben blij dat je deze in zw/w gedaan hebt, wat een sfeer !

Prachtig uitzicht en zeer helder.
Erg mooi verzicht

Belle photo en noir et blanc, j'ai bien apprécié, beaux détails de la foule, bien animée. Bon travail.

Alex, prachtige foto compo van zoveel volk

a modern Breughel? Almost a zig-zag pattern, love, mobies, dogs bikes, young and old, it's all there, love your tones, thanx, M, (*_*)

Perfect capture for the theme. Looking at humans from an outside pov. The light poles add dimensional depth and aethetic value to the image.

pts later (I am quite generous with these lately ;-)

Great composition. Nice to see so many people joining each other on New Years Eve at this beach. Well done.

Wow, alone and togheter in the masses. It's almost like looking at an antfarm :).
Love the shot! So detailed. So many stories!

Merel :)

this is great image! people make very interesting lines here, i like also depth of this picture! well done!

Vraiment super, cette photo, avec le sens du large et de la distance, et la netteté aussi bien à l'avant plan qu'à l'arrière, ainsi que le contraste entre les silhouettes plutôt foncées et le fond blanc -

... et j'ai aussi été intéressée de voir tes photos de Bxl, avec une nouvelle vision de coins où je passe presque tous les jours (bibliothèque royale etc)

Ik hoop dat u mijn Frans can verstaan, ik versta Nederlands maar te spreken en te schrijven, dat is zeker een andere ding !

Uau cool view, folks like ants distributed randomly without any individuality and brain...
Have fun,

Excellent. Peculiarly a sweep of the background appeals to me. Wonderful composition.
