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, 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.
