Nice to see you back where you belong, sir. It's cool to see that in photos since I've seen it in real life too. Very awesome.

I've been here this time of year - this shot is more effective when the tree is not centered and your camera angle shows both the tree and the sea stacks without competing. Here is a similar shot that I have taken here:

Absolutely amazing shot, I love the mist or spray on the water.

Beautifull shaped tree and great contrast!
I also like the title, it adds to your photo.

Nice shot
01/09/2006 11:22:22 AM
My favourite b&w The misty background adds a dreamlike feel The 2 people walking out of the frame act as a bit of a distractor, otherwise an exceptional shot Very well done! "9"

Great tones, beautiful and interesting.

stunning capture.
01/07/2006 12:36:52 PM
It seems as if "La Mer" could also be titled "el Pacifico" :) Would this tree make its appearance again in 06?

That aside, the shape of the tree works good and I like the people at the bottom for scale.

The rocks in the sea detract a bit from the beautiful shape of the tree, still a great shot.

Soft image, with a strong shaped tree in foreground.....slightly slanted.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/06/2006 07:26:55 PM
Wonderful shot! I'm also glad you chose B&W as color would not have had the same effect. (8)
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Feels like home,
I love the composition,
All the contrasting shapes banging around against the elements.
Beautiful and rugged all at the same time - Nice

I feel like I've seen this setting before recently in the free study challange. Fits this challenge very well.

Powerful composition! B&W - perfect!

Classic Oregon Coast photo! Great entry into this challenge. Indeed, we see one of the best known iconic shapes from entire the pacific coastline, Canada to Mexico, Haystack Rock. Excellent composition, with every quadrant in the rule of thirds offering the eye a different portion of the whole. The people in the lower right put the whole scene into perspective. 10!

I can see that it's the shape of the tree that's the subject here, and this is a very nice silhouette with a beautiful background. For some reason (distractions?) the tree doesn't pop out at me like I wish it would. This challenge aside, I think this shot without the tree -- with just the fence and the people and the sea -- would be truly amazing. As it is, the tree almost seems to be in the way.

Beautiful shape. Good use of black and white.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great treatment; this is beautiful. I wish the tree wasn't blurry or oversharpened.

Excellent Pic. I like the stormy conditions and the two people braving the weather, good pic

I love this.

Looks like Cannon Beach, OR on a very windy day. Not sure which shape you're highlighting - the tree in silhouette?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2006 01:55:47 PM
Love the B&W, tree, and haziness of the background.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2006 01:01:56 PM
The feel of this photo is great. The people add. Offcenter and more area to the right would help for me. Good luck.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/04/2006 12:20:53 PM
Simply Wonderful. Caught my eye right away. You people that live near dramatic coastlines are very lucky. Nice touch to have the people in the photo to add some scale. One of my favorites!
