Had seen this small dock earlier in the day and thought it might be a nice place to take a sunset picture of people fishing...well when I got down there no one was fishing but they were all shrimping.

I love silhouettes against the sunrise/sunset and hoped I could get a few nice shots with them throwing their nets. I took a good 20+ images and decided on this one.

Thank you for the very kind comment. This image ended up being a personal best for me so I like it even more now lol. Sorry about the haloing, I guess I need to watch that closer when sharpening.

Thanks again for taking the time to comment it is very appreciated.

I love silhouettes at sundown or sunrise, this is lovely, I just wish you had crouched down (if it had been possible) so that the pier was silhouetted rather than the land behind them. Good luck 7
