Two men were sitting on the bench having a conversation when one of them suddenly stood up and walked over to get a better view. Seeminly in awe of the scene unfolding before his eyes, at this moment I beleive he was somewhere else. Letting go of all other thought, alone with himself - while taking it in.

Nice framing, color and halo

Really nice framing of person by windswept tree. Great feel to it. Well done!

Very nice composition.

Beautiful! The tree provides a perfect frame AND the bench is also perfectly positioned. I wonder if positioning the man a little closer to position, so he's slightly larger within the overall image, would make him more obvious? Just a touch? This is superb! Will surely score well!

Very nice photo, Plrblem linking it to the theme

Nice scenery. I can't see much of a letting go. Needs more depth.

amazing picture, but can't see the connection to the theme. Maybe I just don't understand
02/11/2004 09:03:12 PM
Beautiful picture, but what's letting go?
02/11/2004 07:29:06 PM
I dunno what some people have against sunsets. I could look at this one for a long, long time. Nicely done.

This is a stretch for meeting the topic. But, as a photo I like it even though the sun is a little dominant of the scene.
