Really nice shot. I like this desaturated version. Everything seems very serene. It's almost like taking a bridge off the face of the earth and hanging over a random nothingness. I like it.

Great shot, I really like how the shadows from the hence casts down on the ground, quite interesting pattern it makes. Also, I like the light of the shot, especially that you removed the water in the top from both sides...

Great work :)

I love this a bit more than the turquoise one, but you are such an amazing artist aquapell, wonderful captured and lovely B/W effect, there is a great balance between light and dark color :+fav:

I could have missed the guy on the bridge though, but that's just a minor detail :-)

i owe a lot to the print account for the exposure that i get.. not so much competition in the prints. they have picked 4 of mine so far to be in the daily print section... this has really boosted my pageviews and watchers. you will find the same thing when you subscribe. thank you my friend :hug:

I have to say that I prefer the B&W version of this photo to the color one. The reason is the simple thin black lines framing this image is a perfect accompanment to the lines, shapes, and textures that stand out at us (love the shadows cast on the pathway of the bridge). I like that you also were able to capture a lone person (dressed in a hat and shorts really captures that carefree beach feeling) walking on this span of the pier (challengeing to do in the summertime...I knew I recognized this pier:-) )

beautiful picture. for some reason i seem to be enjoying b+w a lot more than color lately. the contrast is great, and the composition, and how you caught that guy in mid stride. i think that the b+w version has that extra pizzazz (i'm not sure if that is the right word, i just wanted to use it) of the sea blending/fading into the sky. :+fav:

i wish i would have had my 15mm wide angle on when i was up there. i was using my 28-300 zoom.. with a 1.7 multiplier.. the 28mm focal length that i shot this at actually was more like 50mm. but i am still very happy with the results

thank you so much my friend

wow, i have just become jealous of your millimeters. does your camera have a muliplication factor on it? or is 28mm really 28mm? i'm looking at getting a 55-200mm lense...but i can't really think of what i would use it for.
Reply
:iconaquapell:
aquapell Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2004
mine is a digital slr. almost all of them have a multiplier factor of 1.7. it is great for telephoto and macro.. but wide angle you feel a little cheated. so my 15mm is really a 26mm. my 300 is equivalent to a 500mm. some day, the digital camera bodies will have 35mm sensors (a couple do already) and then it will be better. i have 28-300mm that i take to all concerts. it is a good over all lens.

This one makes me feel as though I'm in a dream.

A lot softer feel to it.
