Collection: Miscellaneous
Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: Nikon AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D
Location: La Jolla, California
Date: Jul 10, 2011
Aperture: f/9
ISO: 1250

candid shot of a little girl who reminded me beautiful Ben's girls, in the middle of a bright day on the beach, with a 10-stop ND filter, and some panning motion

21.gif posthumous was the only one who commented on the odd heart-like vignette (especially noticeable in the thumbnail). It was not intentional, I did not darken the corners manually. At first I was not very happy about it, even thought maybe I should fix it by some dodging, but then kind of made peace with it, even found some romantic symbolism in a girl being encased in a heart that is pierced by the surf dagger :)

What a wonderful shot - I wish I had gotten around to commenting on all the photos because this one is fascinating .. she does, as others have commented, look like she has a tail --- what a story that could be conjured up in an active imagination regarding this shot .. it's excellent and I would have given it at least an 8.

Well done Lev. Beautiful image and a perfect score for a devil running at the beach

Congrats on the HM, Lev!!! And I'm relieved to see I'm not the only one who thought she had a tail...

This is really fascinating. Love the spinning blur. Interesting how it looks like the person has a tail!

Delicious. Don't know about the spinning movement, but it's very interesting. That, and her tail.

Very well done, very Bennish too - bumping to a 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Tones are superb... love the movement and reflection. This is actually quite Spurgeonish, in a way.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/17/2011 07:45:49 PM
Great smooth swirls of energy here. Very Ben'ish indeed. And she has a tail!

Perfect interpretation of the challenge. Lovely work.

Perfect inspiration from my favourite part of Ben's work! Composition and contrasts are powerful ... excellent work !
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I like the vaguely heart-shaped vignette in spite of myself. The form of the runner, combined with reflection, is quite intriguing, and I like how dark you went with this.

The beach, the blur, the grain, I think you got all the bspurgeon hallmarks.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/15/2011 11:35:56 PM
The beach, yes, that's Ben. But your athlete looks strange, and I'm getting dizzy. We've left Ben behind. But that's okay. I'm liking where this is going...

You nailed it, awesome work! 10!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
07/15/2011 09:16:29 AM
I love this. Surely could be one of Ben's.
