A driftwood lying on the beach. I didn't put it nor made any compo arrangements, it was there, like that. After the storm and rain that night, it was gone but some other new ones had come.

You have used this charming scene perfectly for this great picture! Looks like everything was waiting for you there to be photographed:) Excellent composition achieved. Like it a lot!
janneman (2682) 2013-05-30 12:36
What to say about this photo?
It is perfect, but the razor sharp branch laying in the alsmost white sand is magic.
The beautiful blues in the water and the clouds make this composition complete.
The vertical format is the best choice!

Superb ! Minimalism and estheticism at its best
Bravo, best regards
carlo62 (38773) 2013-05-30 13:36
un minimalismo magnifico, il cielo scuro si contrappone al mare ed alla spiaggia in modo superbo e, tocco da maestro, il ramo scuro, cattura immediatamente lo sguardo.

Mavi-turkuvaz renk geçişleriyle açık bej tonlarının uyumu harikulade. Dal parçası da şıklığı tamamlamış:) Minimalizmin sadeliği ve zarafeti birarada. Tebrikler.

Wauw!Im pretty impressed with your serie from the maledives,this shows the perfect krital white beach,the pice of wood is a good bonus to make everything alive!

Deniz,I think is needless to say about the composition,clarity and sharpness or colors and light management,
preferably I would like to say that such photos are not just wonderful but they are like lessons to become better,to try to make something similar...
ACL1978 (7511) 2013-05-30 17:32
I don't think I've ever seen sand that white and that smooth before, Deniz - and then to find this great black driftwood to grant maximum contrast is really something. You may not have had to arrange anything, but you interpreted the scene nicely, putting this in a vertical frame and at an angle to the show, which creates a nice dynamic effect. Great minimal approach and result.

No I was not itching to write, probably a state of mind, am trying to remember a dream which recurred as a child, flashes of light, or a continuous flow of light, condensed in time, frozen, holding some unknown state of matter within it and I walk through, morphing through time, not the kind that we might have seen in a sci fi which would be definite, measurable and quantified, the kind of light and canvas that is more subjective, vagaries of complete bliss, more than orgasmic. I have seen this light before only in a dream. And I now see it here. The driftwood is a burst of reality that transforms and quantifies everything which eventually breaks that dream.
How did it feel.

Hello Deniz - A simple and powerful shot. Breathtakingly beautiful. Warm regards Rosemary
timecapturer (49288) 2013-05-31 3:21
this is a stunner. Simple elements all brought together artistically and beautifully. It jumps out at you in the T/nails and is magnificent full size. Top quality - composed and executed superbly. I love it!
Have a splendid weekend - Brian.
jhm (144318) 2013-05-31 3:31
With a little bit fantasy see we an animal on the beach lie, with these wood construction.
Lovely contrast picture through the imminent sky and blue water.
Nice presentation, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,
KristinsCamera (2373) 2013-05-31 4:02
surreal beauty, deniz, with the gorgeous, saturated colors.
technically a lovely capture of the third, third, third composition structure, but so much more than that. you have photographed a scene from a dream.
EstudioChispa (2144) 2013-05-31 6:07
This is a stunning image, Deniz! You have taken very simple elements -- sky, sea, sand (what beautiful sand!) -- and presented them in a masterful manner. This is a well-balanced and expressive composition, juxtaposing the dynamic grandeur of "big" nature with the small (but equally wondrous) driftwood branch.
I cannot say it strongly enough. This is HIGH ART.
Well seen and well-presented; thanks for sharing.
rogerl (1544) 2013-05-31 17:06
Deniz, nicely composed and perfectly cropped, with the clouds, the ocean, and the sand. Nicely framed, and how nice of nature to leave this wood in this spot! I do love the clouds here, and the range of light you've achieved. Thanks.

Hi, Simply wonderful. The sand is so incredible white. I can imagine how soft it is and what a pleasure to walk bare foot or just swim in this emerald crystal clear water. Dream!
fabbs99 (16817) 2013-06-01 11:18
Very impressive sea shot from Maldives. Nice use of wide angle lens. Great shot with good sharpness.Tfs.

Selamlar Deniz Bey,
İşte fotoğrafçılık böyle olur! Asıl fotoğrafçı bir çubuğu bile güzel gösterir. Ellerinize sağlık.
macjake (61514) 2013-06-01 22:07
now THIS is a cool subject too, just like in your last posts.
what a great color contrast, you couldn't have asked for mother nature to set up a better scene for you :)
and the blues with the clouds make it even better.
this one REALLY stands out well in your gallery.
Juzo (4363) 2013-06-02 4:39
Have been to the Maldives recently? Looks like paradise...lovely perfection in this composition, almost summarises the scene to a tee.
delpeoples (55094) 2013-06-02 4:50
Merhaba dear Deniz
I have been reading about the troubles in Istanbul and other cities in your country, and I hope that you are okay and that there is an end to the troubles soon.
But to your photo. The vertical frame is well chosen here and I love the placement of the blackened tree branch. It se4rves as an anchor for the photo, guiding the eye towards the horizon and providing another point of interest. The colours are incandescent, so beautifully contrasted with the white sand and the looming grey sky. A wonderful shot, beautiful in its minimalism and skillful composition.
Have a happy day, thanks for sharing
gojo (1769) 2013-06-02 14:17
Hi again Deniz,
This monsoon has been really helpful, creating these dramatic skys and colors. This one is sooo beautiful, especially the little natural shadow from the piece of wood.
COSTANTINO (59963) 2013-06-05 2:45

Good minimalist and complete simplicity but strikingly impressive, a very calm and relaxing despite the threatening sky, a shot with great contrasting colours. Well done, Congrats.
Ps: Your comments and constructive suggestions are much appreciated. Thank you,
papagolf21 (90576) 2013-06-06 4:09
Image onirique. Les mots sont inutiles, tout est dans la composition.
S'émerveiller et apprécier. Difficile de détacher son regard.
Nicou (130203) 2013-06-06 5:56

Simplicity at its best! Superb shot. Love the blue's and whites, simply attractive yet stunning. Great composition! Those clouds look really aggressive, I wonder how it rained that day. A great contribution to Maldives. Keep em posting!
williewhistler (15571) 2013-06-12 3:45
sometimes in photography less is more...
The image is nicely composed making excellent use of the available elements without any distractions,a little lesson here for learners.
kasianowak (7565) 2013-06-12 4:24
Nice portfolio! You have lots of interesting ideas.
In this image I really like the contrast between the calm turquoise see and the dramatic stormy sky.
Well chosen foreground too.
danos (90413) 2013-06-12 5:50
nice the view of the black driftwood as lying on the white sand and contrasting perfect with the other colours of the scene.I like the excellent, created layers with the beauty of the place to be dreamily.

Simple and very beautiful for it. The layers of colour are very pleasing and the single branch on the beach creating a centre of interest.
Kind Regards, Ann
subhendu_bagchi (25975) 2013-06-15 9:29
ha-ha, just thought those first lines of your note after viewing your photo, i.e, the piece of wood is arranged into the frame by you... Latter know the truth after reading your note. Great view. Class composition in vertical. Did you used some filter on your lens? Like the contrast with sky a lot... Thanks for sharing.
robmal (2018) 2013-06-15 15:14

the quintessential frame... that sky... that light blue strip... and the wood adding depth... simply beautiful
diegoarevalo (30) 2013-08-02 8:00
Amazing composition and contrast of colors!. I like the aestheticism and simplicity you get it, Congratulation.
holmertz (45297) 2013-11-03 9:50
I saw this photo by chance. It is an incredible composition of the most refined artistic simplicity provided by nature and your good senses. I also find it very satisfying to make it reach 100 points, which it truly deserves.
