I have a real love in b&w and sepia photos these days. I took this one yesterday in Asprovalta-Thessaloniki beach. The girl presented is holding a big oyster shell full of water and here is the result using a fast shutter speed. I hope you like it...

I do! The composition is great and you make a good use of sepia here. Would have been intresting if you had captured the whole shadow of the woman in the front but I like the way you cornered the subject on the left. Thanks for sharing.

Hi, Sifis. This is a really splendid shot with the water drops lit by ths un creating a very special effect. The girl's silhouette in the backlight is great as is the perspective with the shore line leading our eyes to the mountains in the background.

Great shot!!! Nice black and white shot! It expresses perfectionnaly the moving which is in this pic!!! But if you would have done the whole shadow on the picture it would look even much better!!!

Wow! I'm glad I clicked for a full-size version as you just can't see the beautiful droplets of water in the small preview.
A stunning silhouette and amazing light. Well done!

A superb black and white shot. How dramatic. You have captured the water droplets with much skill and I love thew ay the girl is silhouetted against the beach and the luminous clouds.

I like very much this picture in B&W... Very good exposition, light and contrast ! And the idea of the waterdrops is nice.

Hello Sifit, very eyecatching image and wonderful idea behind it. I love how you have given the water droplets more of the composition, while holding the girl in silhouette just off-centre. The clarity of the water falling, especially the bigger droplets near the middle of the frame is amazing, great idea with that really fast shutter! TFS!

Γειά σου Σήφη,
Εκλπηκτική φωτογραφία, με τις σταγόνες του νερού "παγωμένες" στον αέρα μπροστά από την κοπέλα. Το έντονο contrast μαζί με το α/μ δένουν πολύ καλά και δημιουργούν μία υπέροχη σύνθεση!

Beautiful composition and very nice moment. Really a very nice work.

Great shot. The droplets of water really make this shot into something superb. Great work with the black and white also.

Hi Sifis, very excellent picture. This is so mysterious place. The black and white was the right choice. You caught a wonderful light.

beautiful pic... !! the "red-filtered" sky reminds me of the great B&W's of the 50's
( Ahh... just noticed the "decisive moment" category and realized where your alegiances lie :-)

Γειά σου Σήφη
Εξαιρετική σύνθεση, πολύ ποιητική θα έλεγα. Το παιχνίδισμα με τις σκιές επιτυγχάνεται πολύ όμορφα και το κάδρο σου είναι εξαιρετικό. Ένα πραγματικό έργο τέχνης! Μπράβο!

Great success of a fast shutter speed, Sifis.
It is also good that the girl is standing on the big oyster shell.
