Photography is the Art Of Light and represents the epitome of Man's progress within the Arts and as such is inevitably the most powerful and compelling. - James Elliott -
As an Artist I feel like an Old Renaissance Master who inadvertently wandered into the Asylum of Modern Art, didn’t get on with the cretins and so tried to stand in one corner, leant on the wrong door, fell through it into a time warp and ended up fifty years into the future. - James Elliott -
Photography is about sustaining a creative continuum until you create a visual orgasm, suspended in Time for eternal ecstasy. What you see forever may only occur for a fraction of a second and only occurs once. I have tried to re-create photographs - you can't. Better or worse, yes - but the same, no! Nothing in this Life is ever the same twice. You might THINK it is, but you just aren't looking closely enough. - James Elliott -
Photography is indisputably the most powerful visual art form ever devised by Man. - James Elliott -

Tout comme un peintre, la nature peint de beaux tableaux. Tu as parfaitement capté ce merveilleux coucher de soleil. Les pare-soleils ajoutent de l'intérêt et participent à la beauté de la photo. Les couleurs sont splendides et toutes en douceur.
Bravo!... et toutes mes amitiés,

I recently spent time in Greece and this is what I miss about it. The coastal setting is beautiful and not ruined by crowds of people. The pillar-like reflection of the sun on the calm sea is superb, as is the outlook to the islands and clouds on the far horizon. Not sure if I like the inclusion of the lamp post as much as the more pleasant umbrellas, but it is part of the landscape and hard to avoid. It doesn't detract much from the overall composition anyway. The curve of the beach is another fine element which helps to break up the layering.

The light here create many shades of soft and subdued colours in the sky. A very calm and pleasant mood!

Geia sou Georgios
Much subtlety is convied by those two "ballerinas" dancing on shore to glorify this fabulous sunset that will soon have to "pass the torch" to the sidewalk light so the performance can go on all night!
