Looks like an HDR image to me. Very cool shot with terrific PP. Well done & congratulations.

Congratulations, Charmayne. Heck, although you're doing nice things for New York and Brooklyn, you're showing us other NYers up. Darn it. ;-) Manhattan Beach is one of the nicest, is it not. I hear it is Russian Mafia these days.

Beautiful shot, love the shadows and the sky. The compostion is sweet, the contrast is right on, the water in the background and clarity. Everything is right on. Awesome work. 10!!!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2007 11:12:09 PM
With all the lighting effects and textures going on. Beautiful in every way. 10.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I had given this an 8 but just came back for a second look and thought, "What was I thinking? This is definitely a 10!" What incredible light!...and your post-processing enhances the light so beautifully. What a wonderfully evocative image. I'm adding this to my favorites because I know I'll want to pull it out to look at it again from time to time.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2007 08:30:46 PM
Good idea and nice light. I wonder if it could be improved if the image were taken from a higher vantage.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2007 08:07:19 PM
I do not normally like fences and other things in the foreground, however, I think you have done a wonderful job of incorporating the fences into this image. They are an integral part of and make the subject that mutch more interesting. Very good job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/09/2007 03:25:05 PM
Really great shot, love the sky! :)

Wonderfully seen and I do very much like the processing - it has an almost watercolor/drawing quality to it. Quite a fine piece.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2007 07:45:34 PM
One of my top picks. Beautiful!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2007 04:42:12 PM
I really like this photograph. You've got a good combination of color and gloomy grey clouds. and light just seems to be coming from EVERYWHERE and going in every direction. There is light coming out of every facet of the clouds, reflected off the water and the sand and in all directions through the fence. Nicely done!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/05/2007 11:40:25 AM
One of the best beach fences I've seen. Love the sky too. 9

  Photographer found comment helpful.
01/03/2007 05:43:07 PM
Very nice image. I love the colour and the dramatic sky here. My only gripe really is the composition. I find the layers of fences a little confusing to look at, perhaps you could have raised the point of view a little. Overall though, I think this is a fine image and really nice to look at. 7/10
  Photographer found comment helpful.

awesome...love the shadows! great photograph and a perfect fit for the challenge...the fence really separates you completely from the water. It's like you are so close yet so far from getting to the edge of land!
