Wow! At a first glance, this photograph is fantastic. But when you look even closer, you can tell you put so much time and effort into this shot. Although it seems bottom-heavy with a blank sky, I think you made it work here! I love the fact that you used a black and white filter along with a square crop. I really like the contrasting of the chair with the sky and sand. The only thing I might add is trying a darker gradient or maybe using more of a range of grays: the photo looks slightly washed out. Great job!

I fell in love with this photograph the moment I saw it. The only down side I could find with this picture was that it was a tad bottom heavy, but I think it helps add to the "empty" feeling you get when you stare at it. The lighting is spectacular. While I see many beach shots, black and white, color, etc...you made yours special, if not iconic. Most people see the beach full of sun, happiness, youth and family. But you changed it, transforming it into a world full of loneliness and depression. Really moving stuff. I hope I helped.

This is one of those photos that at first glance I didn't think was real, it looked like some sort of weird photoshop, it's honestly really amazing that you could take a shot like this.

The horizon lines, because they're so blurry and thick, almost seem like they're coming from the foreground, even though they're clearly far, far away, so the whole piece is messing with my sense of perspective.

Great stuff!

Thank you very much for the kind words! The blur in this one was actually altered in Photoshop. The shots from earlier in the morning had true blur, but it was very bright for this one so I photoshopped it. Glad you like it! Thank you very much for the kind words.

Do you know what? I don't really believe in perfection, for the real meaning of perfection is something that lacks of mistakes and flaws... that's the perfection that I don't believe in, because it simply doesn't exist. I'm going to tell you what perfection is to me: perfection is something that you can't change because you perceive that it is remarkably good as it is with no other change; however, if you liked it that much, it's because you liked its flaws and mistakes too and not because it lacks of them. Now, why the hell am I saying this right here? Well, your picture is perfect to me. There is not something that I would like to change in your photo, I love it as it is right now. I saw in one of your critiques that maybe if you had put the chair off to the side it would have been even more interesting... well, with no offence but that's bullshit to me, the chair looks perfect centered. Each part of the photo is essential to provide this beautiful and minimalist looking: the sky, the sea, the sand, the chair, the reflection, the lack of colors, the lighting...everything is PERFECT! You perfectly managed to create a photo that actually speaks for itself, I can feel what it is saying. Believe me, due to pictures like this I feel passionate by photography. I usually prefer pictures in color, yet, on this case, I prefer your B&W version 'cause the meaning is really different... and if everything that I just said wasn't clear enough.. I LOVE THIS PHOTO :love:

Wow....a very deep expressive piece indeed. Not only is the piece crisp and clear it is also just stunning to look at. The picture in its own way is simple yet very descriptive. The black and white affect also gave it a great look. Fabulous job. I absolutely love this.

Brilliant piece. It seems some people didn't understand that "slighty washed out" is actually just the minimalistic approach you took to creating this wonderful piece of art.

ABSOLUTELY stunning, as you probably already know from the other comments ^^
your skills are incredible, perfect light, very nice with the soft shades of the water (caused by the perfect chosen shutter speed... really like to be able to do such great works too)
really love the minimalistic composition too, well done!

Psst... *whisper* ...the blur in the water was actually simulated with Photoshop.

Oh, you should have seen what the photo looked like before I edited it! 50% of the work happens after I take the shot, usually.

yes, some scenery is so great you don't have to do much to take a breathtaking shot. but you did much more then just capture a landscape, you created an abstract, conceptual artwork!

So sad and filled with emotion. The grey-scale gives it more effect, and the background just makes it more touching.

I adore the abstract feeling here. The sight on the wave under the chair is like simply mindblowing. Maybe it's the black and white and simplicity of the picture, or the horizon line and the mirror effect show emptiness and continuousness I guess? Just like the title says, it would just makes you feel lonely. I can't find anything to be fixed on this photo, simply gorgeous :heart:
