this was taken at ft myers beach in florida. very popular pier. i'm very glad that you like it.
you can learn more about Sigma's SD9 and SD10 here [link]
it is not an inexpensive camera but i think it is the best value out there.
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...
wow. look at all the comments you have received. i am quite jealous. i think your work is doing wonders for you, especially, since recent times. this is amazing. i absolutely adore it. it's getting faved, as well.
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
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 )
Even though I faved the color version I like this much better...This is such a great piece my dear..I really feel as if I am alomost there and I think at times art should convey the feeling of want and pleasure...I love this...
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.
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
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.
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.
the guy wasn't too pleased that i was taking the picture with him in it i think.. when i passed him and said 'hi' he kept right on going like i had serial killer written on me or something.. i guess i do look a lot like one. just kidding
