This photo was taken on one of the many pebble beaches (this one in Minori) which make the Amalfitan Coast in the south of Napoly (Italy). http://www.amalfiscoast.com/index_en.htm
I really recommand this place for who has the opportunity to go there, but be careful to not try to reach it in a "busy" WE because it will more or less take 5 hours to make few km !!! The best is to go on June and rent a vespa...
About the picture I like the focus on the pebbles, the "ghosts" behind and the contrast of colours between that first and the second plan.

Nice close-up, clear and sharp. Very good DOF, nicely colored. I like the fact background is not empty, those blur silhouettes of this mom and her kid add power to your pic.Well done.

interesting perspective. Almost good depth of field - it's good that people in background are blurred, but the rock in the foreground, completely out of focus, is a big distraction. Also some of the rocks are a little bit unsharp.
And maybe it would be better if the people were not so much in the centre of the image.
Anyhow, interesting work.

Una foto molto creativa e suggestiva: il punto di vista e la profonditá di campo sono spettacolari. I fantasmi, come dici, sono definiti quanto basta per dare dinamicitá e vitalitá alla foto. Bella davvero. ;)

J'adore ce close up.
Seul détail qui me gene : le caillou en primier plan qui est flou et gache un peu.
