A simple case of coincidence. Sitting in the shade of a tree, I noticed my husband’s t-shirt mimicked the colours of the environment. Enjoy your Sunday!

love this! Your observation and timing here are exceptional. I love the pooling water and the simplicity is just irresistible and elegantly beautiful. A real cracker of an image that is both original and captivating. Stunning! One of your best!
Enjoy your Sunday - Brian.

A beautiful and very well observed minimalist composition. I like the light and colours and the very good clarity. Very apt and funny title as well!

une très belle photo, les couleurs sont harmonieuses et la chemise est parfaitement en accord.
C'est bien vu, une bonne idée

Jolly well seen and jolly well taken too!
How wonderful that you spotted a simple opportunity like this - something which so many of us would have passed by - or even avoided including in our viewfinder!
This distant view, of course, is idyllic as are the colours in the sea contrasting so well with the soft colour of the beach, but the light on that T-shirt is divine and its colours do indeed mimick those of the ocean.
A delightful and innovative composition with lovely light and colours, perfect exposure and exquisite detail and sharpness.

I like the drama in your frame. It keeps talking about a story. Very use of lights. The branches are highlighted very nicely.
Thank you very much for sharing.
Let us share our world to each other.

spontaneous shot,but the end result we see is really magnificent!I like its funny and relaxing character(so the title you chose is more than apt here:)and describe perfectly the atmosphere of that moment.
For me one thing more makes your image so spectacular,namely th edark,dramatic sky.I gives superb contrast in the upper part of the image.
Have a nice sunday

in addition to the color of the gown that blends in with the sea, the scene also gives space to the imagination, I have thought of a beautiful woman who attacked her clothes to a branch and went to take a bath, beautiful colors and light...
have a good evening...

Very nice composition with details and atmosphere from Summer.Awesome colors and contrasts.Nice lightning usage and POV too.
Have a nice day

Your husband arranged this shot very well, even without thinking of it. The combination of the dark, naked branches, the threatening sky. turquoise water, light brown sand and that shirt swinging in the air is quite stunning. It's a bit like a surrealistic painting. A combination of things that don't belong together. Good compositions can always be found if you know how to look for them.
jjcordier (78388) 2013-07-21 13:59
Belle harmonie entre les couleurs du paysage et celles du tee shirt de ton mari!Bonne composition d'image.
Royaldevon (32971) 2013-07-21 14:18
I have to say, well spotted!
Sometimes, such unanticipated shots are the best. They take you by surprise and you wonder why you hadn't really planned it!
A very well composed, incidental shot, using a good dof to keep the focal image sharp against a very useful b/g.
My warm regards,

un altro esempio da manuale, come passare da una cosa semplice a una bella fotografia.
Ci vuole molto poco, un ramo, un vestito e il mare delle Seychelles....

There are coincidences all around us, but it takes a great eye and great skill to turn them into a photo like this one, Rosemary. The shirt almost inverts the colors of the scene, which are dark descending to light, while also giving us a kind of perfect carefree summer statement. Beautiful light and focus as well, for this nifty little scene. Thanks!

Hi dear Rosemary
Ya another great paradise image from different appraoch. Perfect framework and the best color touch!
I choose my favorite without hesitation. Great job you did!
Thanks a lot and have a good new start! Takero

There is a cool sense of movement in this, a great thing to be able to do in a static shot. Both the t shirt and the sea have a great fluidity to them, and the tshirt seems to mimic not only the movement, but also the colors of the sea. Nicely spotted!
olive224 (2719) 2013-07-22 1:24
Very well done this tee-shirt with the same color than the sea !
THe depth of field is excellent and the whole composition very intriguing ;)
delpeoples (54603) 2013-07-22 4:57
Hi dear Rosemary
hehehehe I thought that might have belonged to the son-stealing hussy of your previous photo ;) But yes, this shirt indeed has mimicked its surroundings like a chameleon. And it's created something almost like a flag. The powdery blue colours of the sea are amazing, the shirt adds interest, and the tree adds interest and texture. Thanks for sharing.
Have a lovely day
PS; So glad to hear you're a Rebus fan too - if I ever meet you, you're welcome to come on my stalking sessions :D
williewhistler (15377) 2013-07-22 5:58
Hello Rosemary,isn`t it strange how sometimes an image just jumps out at you? The complementary colours work ever so well to provide a lovely shot.
I just wonder how the shirt stays on that flimsy little branch.
Very well seen.
Kind regards Les.
marabu61 (9383) 2013-07-23 4:59
It does indeed take up the colors of the surounding sea and sky that T-Shirt of your husband. Very well observed, it makes for a wonderful composition with a great feel of vaccation to it.
have a great day
mjw364 (7516) 2013-07-24 0:45
Creative and imaginative observation of hubby's t shirt! Love the colour palette overall. Wish I was there!
macjake (60518) 2013-07-25 7:54
its nice to see such a round # of 20000 on your profile!
funny photo to start my day with here. and yes, the colors do seem to match don't they. Funny too, how he put it there probably not even being aware of how it would have made such a good photo opp just for you :)
the place you're at there looks very peaceful and quiet, as if nobody is around at all! lovely scene.
abmdsudi (46146) 2013-07-25 8:06
Interesting idea, and this would seem the right sort of shot to do it with a bit softness in bg but still maintain a strong focal point in the foreground. Good use of the light here bring up the tones nicely. Congrats.

A fabulous landscape with magical colours.
A beautiful palette with the garment of the front plan.
rigoletto (34269) 2013-07-31 11:38
beauty is in the eye of the beholder, well spotted different share :)
ps: coming close to namibia in two weeks, ok not that close, but still closer than turkey :)

agjika (3616) 2013-08-11 3:29
Great idea and caption. I would have prefered some pretty woman's dress instead but it works!! And what a lovely sea.
adores (40308) 2013-08-15 15:40
Very well seen! The colours really match and they are fabulous. Seems the sky was getting very dark and it makes such a great contrast with the water. Very good light also.
