Wow ! What a shot! There's no need of putting other details about the photo 'cause the photo already depicts it.. cool...
Hey, I hit "Like" for Barney's last comment and it says something about "unlike"..So, just in case I hit the wrong "Like" or something is wrong, Barney, I totally understand where you are coming from and agree...Hence sayings such as "Viva La Difference"! I find it so encouraging that we comment and are kind, honest, but supportive in our comments. Does that "unlike" thing mean that we can subtract our likes??...Ah, some of us are not "totally technologically savy"! Thanks, Barney.
I get it, and I love it. It is dream-like and beckons the viewer to drift away toward illusive mysteries.
There is a timeless, yet alive, quality. The softness in the blending of whites and grey as the depth goes on and on and on.... Intriguing the crashed ship; and the blended softness in movements of the people. Keeps my eye moving and returning to look again!
I don't know, I think I'd like the short-exposure version better. While I have learned not to say anything when I don't have anything to nice to say (you can thank Myra for that), I have to say I don't get it.
Hi @SamanthaLyn Samuelson S. That's right, the "Unlike" is there so you can take back your like. Thanks for the question, and I'm glad you're enjoying the conversation!
i guess the wonderful thing..is that moods, timing and how one feels at any given time can affect how we think and feel about a photo.. i almost always agree with you (not always vice versa):-) and thats whats unique! this time round ... happy that " i get this one :-) and its exactly that dreaminess that P lecht and Samantha mention combined with the sensation of movement that the choppy waves underline and the movment in the figure that gives an almost "ghostly" feel.. but i think it is so wonderful that not all photos speak to the same persons or have the same impact. otherwise ...what a boring and flat world!
@water bird @Barney Blasterson You are wise and very diplomatic water bird, and may I say good for the Photo Of The Day site. Not everybody's going to like every photo, I do get that. And like I said to Tatum the other day, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But I have to be honest, I don't see ghostly, I see blurry. And again like I said to Tatum, who cares what I think. I especially hope the photographer Guy Mokia doesn't care what I think. He seems to have a great sense of good subject matter, in this case I just wasn't crazy about the end result.
