A fisherman stood on this pallet. I ask him
if I could borrow his pallet for a few
minutes........This is the result.
I have uploaded once a time a vertical
version, so you can see the difference.
I use the open space, to make the picture
nice calmness. In the middle of the
picture you can see a coming wave, it's
no lens error.

the looks(luckily)of her mother and she

father....If you like to watch a picture
of her father's creativity watch:
I hope you like both pictures.

the wooden platform is the fixed point of the image, excellent slow motion effect in the sea, beautiful colors...

A fantastic, dreamlike atmosphere here. The colours and the mist are spectacular and I love the inclusion of the wooden crate. The wide-angle lens has worked wonders here, the distortion is magnificent. Great job!

The crate transforms a spectacular seascape into a very artistic composition. I like the way that the crate contrasts with the satin sea. Glorious colours.
Kind Regards, Ann

actually this deserted pallet is something we would try to avoid in such composition,but you were able to create of it an important part of your image.So it seems to be crucial here.Awesome idea and perfect execution.The image is excellently composed and has delightful colors.

Have a good day,Danos

A composition with a bit of romanticism, spendid colors and a quiet atmosphere. I like the pallet on the FG, the texture of the water and the magnificent sky. A picture that invites us to spend time there.
timecapturer (30342) 2012-09-04 4:50
a piece of magic from you. Love the fg interest and the glorious sky colours reflected on the wet sand, but is the smoky waters that make it so appealing and beautiful. Wonderful addition to your fine gallery.
Enjoy your day - Brian.

Une belle image superbement construite qui fait preuve d'une technique irréprochable. Le résultat vaut certainement un agrandissement.
yaya13baut (3344) 2012-09-04 10:50
a dreaming picture that you created under a nice sunset light and thanks to a good technical management.
the wooden pallet allows a nice composition, the "truc en plus".
kathryn_weir (1742) 2012-09-04 11:48
A striking shot with strong composition and perfect use of the long shutter speed allowing the silky water to weave its magic. I like the sharpness and clarity of the wooden palette juxtaposed with the softness of the water and the sky is captured in all it's beauty.
Thanks for sharing
brianmcc (5536) 2012-09-04 12:52
you have captured a wonderful atmosphere in this imahe. the colours are beautiful and very attractive. the movement of the waves is superb and creates a superb effect as the water comes onto the sand. the inclusion of the pallet adds further interest. this pallet seems to travel alot and come ashore in many countries as i have met it before myself!!

Splendid seascape with nice effect,beautiful colors and reflections.I love it!

fabbs99 (5499) 2012-09-04 14:22
Excellent view of the sea with the Sun setting and the effect has been of ND filter has been perfect to give the desired visual effects.Nice perspective and clarity.
jjcordier (62366) 2012-09-04 22:44
La palette en bois est peut-être moins esthétique qu'un beau rocher mais n'empêche pas d'admirer les couleurs de la photo et l'effet longue pose très réussi sur la mer.
jhm (122474) 2012-09-05 4:45
Technisch zeer perfect gemaakt, goede indeling.
Zeer mooie en zachte strand foto met de palet als afleider.
Heel mooie en zachte foto met veel diepte en mooie hemelse kleuren, bedankt.
Prettige dag verder,
abmdsudi (26295) 2012-09-05 6:08
A lovely seascape, the out of place pallet has made a fantastic lead in as well as, an excellent foreground interest. Fine exposure, good clarity and some wonderful colors the sky area with good touch of golden tone, this i feel gives the added value to this image. The motion effect on the water further adds the overall natural beauty and atmosphere. Excellent capture my friend and thks to your fine effort. Congrats.
jlbrthnn (79773) 2012-09-08 8:41
The note is useful to describe your intention. The picture is clever. Excellent technical quality. Bravo.
Have a nice day
josepmarin (55063) 2012-09-10 10:59
the nice silky effect of the water, and its strong contrast with the sky, the clouds and the colors, they create a pleasant sensation of seeing a painting.
And you just have used this simple palet for to reach a great graphism, because you have combined it skillfully with the beauty of sky, its light and its fantastic tonalities.
A beautiful work.
PS: a superb picture of your baby!!
sacimar (25957) 2012-09-12 9:40
I like this image, the composition is interesting with the pallet on the left corner, the light is another good element here, well seen,
korbee (6301) 2012-09-12 10:03
in mn werk zie ik duizenden en duizenden van die euro pallets,maar jij hebt hem er wel heel mooi op gezet Rob. ;=],prachtige strandfoto.
heb je hem niet meegenomen zon ding is toch effe 20 euro statiegeld ;=].
macjake (39235) 2012-09-17 10:08
and yes, as usual i love your photo.
You do an excellent job in paying close attention to the small details.
for example, placing the horizon line at the 1/3 level and hot at the 50% level.
the sky is amazingly colorful, and the light seems to be striking the pallet in just all the right places.
one of your best!
UlfE (13730) 2012-09-17 11:53
A brilliant shot. The positioning of the pallet is excellent. I really enjoy the way it is pointing towards the left bottom corner. Great use of the shutter speed. While the clouds in the background still are sharp the movement of the water gives it a silky look. Almost like ice. Also great with the horizon at one third. TFS and have fine week!

Dobar tekst, drago mi je da vase dete dobro napreduje i raste.
Lep pogled na paletu, pucinu i oblake koji donose kisu.
Dobra ostrina, kontrast i perspektiva, lepe boje.
Dobra kompozicija, lepa priroda, moje cestitke na ulovljenom trenutku.
Prijatno vece i mirna noc sa vasim detetom.
Sve najbolje u novoj nedelji koja je pocela.
Goed artikel, ik ben blij dat je kind verloopt en groeit.
Mooi uitzicht op het bereik, de zee en de wolken die regen te brengen.
Goede scherpte, contrast en perspectief, mooie kleuren.
Goede compositie, mooie natuur, mijn complimenten voor de vastgelegde moment.
Gezellige avond en een rustige nacht met je kind.
Al het beste in de nieuwe week die begon.
Cricri (86501) 2012-09-18 9:37
Bel effet du grand angle et de la longue pose sur la mer, des couleurs fantastique, joli emprunt de la palette de bois pour remplir cette composition magnifique
PS) en effet il y a un fin bord blanc, un recadrage mal fait, sorry :-)
Oceania (2165) 2012-09-19 5:19
The orange-gray sky above the vast silky water, it's so soothing. You are showing us a fabulous picture.
sacavem (18576) 2012-09-19 7:56
Nature always expels what is not yours .....
Excellent colors and clarity.Light is very good too.
Waylim (22357) 2012-09-20 11:10
Hello again Robert,
Great use of the ND gradient filter here to captured the intense color of the sunset, the cloud and the rich color really provide a dramatic mood, the foreground of the wave and itde is soft and smooth in texture, and well exposed. The wooden plank with warm color matched well with the color of the sky, and therefore worked out well. Otherwise, I would rather not include the wooden plank and keep it simple and make it all natural without any man made elements.
kasianowak (2263) 2012-09-24 1:33
Beautiful colours and light. What I like the most is the juxtaposition between the blurred moving water and the static pallet.
Have a nice day
kordinator (13411) 2012-10-13 0:44
Spendid colors and a quiet atmosphere.
Fine texture of the water and the magnificent sky.
Excellent clarity and perspective.

Une palette égarée dans un magnifique paysage marin.Parfait cadrage de cette composition.
thebest (3370) 2012-11-26 2:52
You did well to borrow the pallet as you are well aware it adds interest to the photo - I cannot praise your work highly enough - I am a happy snapper & only really been taking photo's for about a year now... There is so much to learn & looking at your images can only inspire me to get better.
speedymanu (3148) 2012-11-28 4:09
I'm glad you've borrowed it. Combined with the delicacy of the colors and the frozen water effect due to long exposure, the texture an the pattern of the palette complement and contrast with the seashore. The wide angle and resulting distorsion adds some dynamics to your composition.
kennyblack (4139) 2013-01-18 8:32
Very beautiful and rich your gallery full of great works and all very beautiful. I like your style of photograph and present the photos. I like that 's good composition and delicate colors. Great POV as the whole perfect management. thanks for sharing.
The best greetings, have a nice weekend ... Marino
mkamionka (24559) 2013-03-13 15:11
great use of the palette to create an interesting point to focus on in the foreground. The long time exposure is fantastic, you had also a beautiful sky.
So simplistic and yet very impressive.
adramad (27556) 2013-04-05 11:10
A marvel of composition, in which the floating palette creates a special atmosphere, beautiful water surface that looks like silver, the color of the sky is sensational as that pretty palette.
Magnificent the management of the brightness, sharpness is also optimal.
Well done. I love it.
Enjoy a happy weekend.
jcpix (3325) 2013-05-05 16:53
Definitely not something used as a common subject, but you've done a masterful job making it work! :) Very ingenious to utilize an object like that and have this kind of result. The light played from the pallet is what makes it a viable element, and the texture is a nice contrast to the smooth water surface from the long exposure. I really like the unique quality of this image, the style is undoubtedly yours, but the creative visualization takes it up another level. Great shot. Have a great day.
All the best,
