This was a lucky "catch". I was snapping pics of the sunset at Allegheny State Park and this fisherman I was chatting with walked across my horizon. Only got one shot of him and I was pleased with it.

Absolutely gorgeous, Aimee! Great score, great picture. I love the ripples and I like that you have him in the middle or quite nearly so. Lovely composition and wonderful colors without being overdone.

wooooooooohooooooooooo we gotta 'femme fetale' in the top 40!!!! woman you rock!!! your guy know your out chatting with men in waders at sunset?j/k

I never saw this picture when I voted challenge, either. I love the choice of sky tones as opposed to the dark lower tones. I look at this picture and it feels like I can hear the sound of the fishing line as it crosses the water. Very emotive and peaceful. NICE NICE job here!

beautiful, but it could gain from less central composition and an angle showing less of black land

wonderful colors and perfectly sharp given the action...the ripple creates the absolutely perfect foreground interest

Amazing colors and shot as a whole, but I really love the ripples around him - gives a real sense of life to the shot.

I think it would look better with fewer silhouettes on the left hand side.

i like that you captured the ripples in the lake - you can tell it is perfectly still, except for him
