Hello Julie,

A photograph from a good photographer's eye!
I love this with its strong emphasis on light and shadow, vivid and subtle. The vertical lines of the fence are a strong feature, sharply focussed.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

quel graphisme fait cette barrière de bord de mer en bois, avec loes herbes en fond qui siuvent le mouvmeent le beau sable et ciel plus que pur, fantastique.

Bravo et amitié

Oooh, this is calling to me too Julie. Love to see waves of sand instead of waves of snow! :)
Love this shot ... great eye to see this. The fence is a perfect way to break this into thirds. I really like the stark blue sky too. great job.

Hello Dear Julie!

Oh its sand! At first looking at the thumbnail I thought the ground to be covered with snow.
Well its great feeling thinking about beach in winters..
Anyhow, very good selected scene with good sharpness and details. Light conditions are appropriate too.

TFS, indeed nice shot!


Hi Julie,

A wonderful perspective with wonderful blue sky and superb contrast!
Perfect sharpness and great colors. The white sand works so well here and gives a wonderful platform.
Very well done!

best wishes,

Nicely composed picture, Julie.
Great light and colors. TFS :o)

Hi Julie,
gorgeous image which is cold outside.
If I look out the window and see only white and cold .. May your picture warms me a bit.
Splendid play, congratulations.
Have a nice day,

I love these fences! They have them on Lake Erie too, which is frozen by now! haha! Nice shot, warms me up too! How nice the sand is here!

Hi Julie,

An excellent capture of the classic dune fence. The shadows and patterns are well seen, and you've done a nice job managing the light. A sunny day with blue skies, my kind of weather :)

TFS and have a nice weekend.


Hello Julie,

Very nice picture of the sandy beach and the dune fencing. Great color from the sky with a nice contrast to the sand. I just did a very similar one and would like to know your thoughts.

Have a good weekend,



love the crisp feel in this image, great light, brings out the gorgeous colours, thanx, M, (*_*)

Hi Julie

Stunning graphism & repetition here, with good sharpness & effective framing. The blue sky & white sand go well together. I like the punchy, high contrast. Tfs!

Hi, Julie -
Love this warm summer image. The fence posts and their shadows provide nice repeating graphics on a gentle diagonal through the frame. Sharp, with deep blue sky background. I'm tired of snow! Nice work.

Hi Julie,
A brilliantly presented graphism. Remarkable sharpness and clarity.
Only a keen photographer would see beauty hidden in a simple fence
and a stretch of sand. Well selected point of view. Well done.
Best regards.

Hi Julie, a very good photograph indeed but my suggestion is to compose to get a diagonal photograph instead of almost horizontal. Babujayan
