Great dramatic shot. The wave at the bottom is blown-out a little. This may have been better cropped out.

Energetic and turbulant with a sense of 'rush' and great use of light and sghadow to add instant interest to the figure fishing above. Bumping up.

Wow. People fish from that height. B/W was a perfect choice -8

Extreme Fishing. I didnt know you could catch fish on coasts like that. The compostion is great really shows the size of the cliff in comparsion to the fisherman. Just a little too flat on the black and white. (8)

Very nice shot... but fishing from way up there?

Very dramatic photo, first reaction is just WOW! I like the framing by the clouds and waves. I'd also love to know if he caught anything!
12/03/2005 02:09:56 PM
Cool! I like it!

WOW... now that would have to be a loooong line and crazy fish for swimmin' round there! Cool capture, I always love photos of waves crashing against rocks and the clouds in the background are just a nice added feature of interest. I imagine the use of b/w is due to the harsh lighting conditions, but I like it!

huge wow factor..
love how small he is..nice perspective..

wow. powerful... Was this man really fishing or is this staged cause its hard to believe if he did hook a fish how he could reel it all the way up... still great waves, cliffs and clouds.

great capture--good textures, tones and lighting

I like the movement and high contrast of this one. Having the single figure with the fishing rod really makes the shot. The shadow of the rocks might be a tad too much, but the overall composition and impact is still there.

6 - Good scene. Criticism; maybe the color would be better if you had it. Also, given the position of the 'fisherman', perhaps a sharper angle/perspective to complement the unusual position of 'him', may have also helped this in my opinion.

Great shoot, I like the clouds and the person adds alot of perspective, well done.
