That is one very still fisherman. This is my favorite of the challenge (I am not a big fan of cityscapes). The simple lines, subtle horizon line and wonderful color make it. You may want to check out Michael Kennan's website. He is a acclaimed photographer that does amazing night exposures for hours. Your shot here is evocative of his work.

This is ridiculously cool
I love the faint horizon line

Awesome stuff Bear, well done. I'm love this image, the blue works wonderfully!

Congrats! I had in my mind that this was an Iceland shot.

Beautiful image, Bear. Like the composition and the ghostly transition from water to sky.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/17/2006 12:56:56 AM
so this was yours! Nice placement there, 11th! :)
I still envy your skill at gradients...

Wow! I would have never expected this from you Robert ;) This is just stunning! Great job here. So is this the nautical twilight shot?

I like the simple blue cast combined with the simple composition. The jetty really draws your eye to the fisherman figure. Nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Excellent. Love the beautiful blue tones. The thin line between the sky and the sea is amazing. 10.

beautiful
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/16/2006 03:01:19 AM
I would have either cloned out, or cropped out the distracting spots on the left of the image. Otherwise, it's perfect. I especially like the negative space of the upper image and how it contrasts, yet compliments the subject. Well done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Absolutely beautiful!

Love the color...

I like this one
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2006 10:30:56 PM
I have to think, enlarging this on a wall 24" or so could be magnificent.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2006 08:27:37 PM
Liked it!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I think the overall darkness of the picture and the distance of the subject work against each other here. If the pic had been a little lighter, you could have gotten away easier with the tiny person - the the challenge subject of Night Shot mitigated against lightening the pic. So I'd have probably gotten closer and emphasized the subject a bit more. Tough call. The deep blue and black tones are very nice.

Excellent.

Ribbon. Love the negative space the leading line and the blue tone. 10
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/13/2006 12:50:16 PM
Wow this is simply amazing. 10 from me :)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2006 08:41:40 PM
Nice photography.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2006 07:23:24 PM
I will be shocked if this doesn't get a ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2006 04:05:26 PM
The blue has blinded me. Now I'll have to calibrate my eyes ;-) Nice, but do something about the blue color. Too much and too bright.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2006 01:54:02 PM
the whole thing seems very unnatural to me ... I'd love to see the original photo ...
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/12/2006 12:05:06 PM
Wow. Color, perspective, leading lines, a hint of fog...it's all here. Good work!
  Photographer found comment helpful.

A very simple yet effective image. I would clone out the light on the left as well as the buoy. Just my opinion

Good Luck

I love the blue; good shot.

Love blues, and love this image.....
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Nice colors and good composition. I like the "minimalist" approach you have taken with the overall simplicity and the tiny size of the lone person.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2006 03:03:10 PM
Lovely picture. Looks like a painting. There are some minor spots (on the right), but overall effect is wonderful. 8.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2006 01:20:45 PM
This is very beautiful, but what are the spots on the left of the picture?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2006 11:54:31 AM
The color here jumps off the screen! Cropping a bit off the top and right would probably make the fisherman more of a subject.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2006 11:27:44 AM
love the fog, the sence of depth, and the colours really speak the mood. This would be my pick for a blue ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2006 05:57:58 AM
My favorite color is blue :o) Like your picture because it IS blue, and the subject is clear although small... 7
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/11/2006 02:52:58 AM
Like the concept. Not sure I like the person so small though. - 7

I can identify with that shot. Very nice.

Amazing capture. Well composed & focused. The blue is a bit much, but it works. :)

poetic
  Photographer found comment helpful.

This is beautiful. It makes me wonder if they should limit "basic editing" more because it shifts too far away from what the original was.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
05/10/2006 12:56:00 AM
WOW - this is powerful. Love the cobalt!!!
