What I see here is a strikingly simple and incredibly beautiful photograph, masterful in every aspect I can think of.
A short analysis on the technical side. The composition is a perfect textbook example of "the golden 1/3-rd rule" - both the chairs and the horizon. It is however not boring at all (as textbook samples often are) - these proportions are well used to emphasize the simplicity of the cadre. The colors are saturated but in the same time very calm which creates the main feeling in the picture. The blue color scheme works together with the reflective ground to give the notion that there is nothing but the water and sky in the picture - a tranquil and wistful sensation. The thin orange line in the sky is the only hue that differs but it harmoniously blends with the blues. Finally, the soft gradient towards the edges completes the composition.
This is a flawless image and it doesn't really need any criticism. There is hardly anything I could suggest to improve it.
Amazing work of art. It is what I call true photography. Photo has an IDEA - the most important thing in art of photography. This work is really new (just for me), it has really breathtaking impression. I just love it! Now about technique. Nice focus on chairs and brilliant reflection. I can't express my love to reflections, especially on this photo. Man, how did you do this? Is it magic? Or ice? How this chairs stand on water?! I don't understand, but it's so cool! Calm background just helps to focus attention on chairs. Just a little critique. Maybe, you should turn photo a little to aline it. Also, I'd do small contrast correction to underline difference between background and main object (chairs and reflections). But, really, it's amazing. Just amazing. Love it Posting on behalf of
Thank you for the kind words! The chairs are actually on the sand. You're seeing a reflection cause the tide came in and left a smooth layer of water right there. Plus, it was a longer exposure. That's why the blur occurred in the background.
This is jaw dropping, this pic has an amazing amount of clarity and smoothness, I almost feel like I'm staring into a desktop background instead of an actual waterscape Additionally, I like the romantic undertones of the idea. You didn't necessarily need to photograph an actual couple or include hearts anywhere on the picture, but just having the two chairs close together leaning towards each other really helps set the mood for this piece
