Nice capture. I am sure will get a good score. And as a bonus, you was there when the picture was taken. :) I wish I was there too. :)

terrific lighting! I love the silhouettes, the sand looks wonderful, so sleek.

I like your choice of shooting into the sun to create the silhouette. This use of lighting gives the impression of a great day at the beach coming to a close... your younger subject seems happy and carefree.

Silhouettes are always so flat, but there are enough clues on the beach to give this image some depth.

Nice silhouette - I'd prefer them walking into rather than out of the frame though.

The child certainly looks carefree! I like the silhouette look and I always enjoy seascapes. Great use of space and light is what helps make this image, though the sun's rays are harsh and slightly unappealing. I definitely get a happy go lucky feeling from the image. Well portrayed. 7

Very nice shot. I think it might have been even better if they were running/walking into the frame.

I'm not usually a fan of the big blurry sun in a picture, but I think in this particular image it works well, and without it I dont think it would have had the same impact. The tone is wonderful, the fact that you can see the details in the surrounding environment is great, it looks perfectly exposed. The silver-like reflection of the sand is good. I also like that they are in silhouette so that you dont have to spend too long looking at the detail of them but just enjoy the entire scene. The lighting certainly sets the mood here, and the title reflects that mood well.

Great silhouette - personally I would have cropped the right hand side but by how much?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
10/20/2003 02:10:49 AM
Real nice.
Did you try a tighter crop or maybe vertical crop?
