Amitiés et bonne journée.

Great framing and composition with superb light and colours. Apart from the shadows and the reflections that your title spells out, I also liked the lovely sunset glow on the water, the logs and the beach.
Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

This is an excellent shot! So simple and yet so beautiful. Great composition with superb colours and excellent clarity. Truly spectacular shot good on all aspects. Great photography, I like it a lot! Thanks for sharing.

This is a brilliant piece of work you have here. The simplicity of the composition really grabs the eye. The reflection gives a nice touch to the coloured sand, and combined with the superb colours, it creates a powerful shot. I also like the fact that you have a diagonal feel to the image with the fence running obliquely across the frame. Well done on exposing the different contrast on the posts. A marvellous shot and an excellent composition.

Hello Brian ,
A splendid composition , with the effective diagonal of the wooden posts , and their reflections on the wet sand . Beautiful colors and a great sky .
Royaldevon (39340) 2014-04-02 2:10
This is a stunning shot!
It's simple but strong composition, with the warm/cold colour contrasts and those shadow-streaked reflections are truly eye-catching. Your photograph just leapt off the screen!
Have a great day,
willperrett (10894) 2014-04-02 2:21
Now that's a composition! Beautifully simple and stronger for it, with the dynamic diagonals of the line of posts and the waves beyond cutting across the otherwise insistent horizontals. You already know my thoughts on saturation!

Bonne journée, amicalement,

A lovely and very beautiful picture!
You saw some simple details while you were strolling along that beach, had a great idea for them and did such an excellent photo job, with special regards to the management of light, colors and composition!
TFS - congrats,

The shadows and reflections are so special Brian, I like the way they form a criss-cross pattern across the textured sand. An attractive beach scene which makes the best use of the light and simple elements.
shreya2000 (2549) 2014-04-02 6:18
Excellent pic. Very nice clarity and composition. Superb image !!!!! Full marks to you. Thanks for sharing.
kasianowak (9183) 2014-04-02 8:27
Beautiful image with so many eye-catching elements from top to bottom. I like the diagonal leading line created by the groynes and the criss-crossing lines of shadows and reflections in the foreground.
Have a nice evening
rychem (36791) 2014-04-02 8:40
Great, fantastic colors and light, perfect composition, simply a splendid photo
dekanski (5439) 2014-04-02 8:54
great "geometrical" photo. Technically superb! Excelent composition!
ChrisJ (114585) 2014-04-02 9:32
Nice symmetrical reflections of the posts. I am wondering what they were as most piers are at right angles. Anyway wonderful sharpness and nice warm vs cold colour contrasts between the blue sky and the reddish tinted sand visible just below the water surface. The diagonal alignment adds good dynamism and perspective. Tfs!
rbassin (23043) 2014-04-02 10:25
Une superbe photo, j'aime beaucoup la simplicité;
les poteaux créent une bonne structure, accentuée par le miroitement.
PaulVDV (29147) 2014-04-02 11:50
An excellent picture with that wonderful light and the beautiful colours.
I like the many diagonal lines of the poles, their reflections and the many oncoming waves.
Splendid reflections in the clear water.
Best regards, Paul
Romano46 (18472) 2014-04-02 12:13
che luce splendida!
Immagino che sia la prima luce del mattino anche perchè l'atmosfera è brillante e i colori sono netti e decisi.
Una composizione eccellente valorizza le bellezze della natura e gli splendidi colori del creato.
Ciao e buona notte
emka (98706) 2014-04-02 13:18
hi brian, fantastic reflections, shadows and crystal clean water,
jcpix (13930) 2014-04-02 19:37
I assume you got your feet wet for this one, yeah? What an instant attraction to this photo, so many of the aspects that I love are contained within this composition. Nature has provided you with a real life tic-tac-toe board of the post's reflections and their subsequent shadows...brilliant positioning for effect and perspective! Not only that, but you have some kind of divine light to boot...must have been living proper a year ago to have this shine down upon you. ;) Where have you been hiding this gem for so long, what a stellar outcome and conveyance of atmosphere. Top notch shot mate! Take it easy.
Cheers from the silly side,
Your use of the term "scaley friends" today just reinforced my disdain for fish...gross! lol I don't want to eat anything that has a skin condition. :)
Corry (4508) 2014-04-02 21:14
J'aime beaucoup cette image avec les reflets et les ombres des poteaux dans l'eau. Lumière parfaite avec de superbes couleurs. Très bien fait.
dkmurphys (59155) 2014-04-03 0:52
What a superb beach scene. I like the clear water and the golden reflections. Well taken.
Kamilutka (8107) 2014-04-03 2:39
excellent quality picture and quite artistic approach to the subject. I love the reflections of the wooden poles on the shallow water and the way the light plays such important part in creating mood of this photo. Superb colors and perfect sharpness.
Truly enjoyable! TFS!
saxo042 (37888) 2014-04-03 7:04
Very clear and attractive colours and a very well composed picture. All lines of the waves far away are parallel to to strong line of the poles. These are also nicely reflected in the shallow water.
Didi (60588) 2014-04-03 9:59
Magnificient lateral lights on the beach
With interesting pattern of shades on the sand
Well done with this capture
krzychu30 (15512) 2014-04-03 10:49
the way you composed it,but even more your PP work has created here really amazing and dreamy mood of the scene.Just love the way the poles reflects in the shallow water in the FG.
Noel_Byrne (31416) 2014-04-03 12:20
Not to sound like I am fawning, but this is incredible. Such a simple scene, and you have made it into a work of art. The colors of the sky are amazing, and the reflection of the poles are sublimely beautiful. All seems so calm, and then the crashing waves bring an element of life and movement. Wow to this one, thanks again.
macjake (68432) 2014-04-04 7:46
you've got yrself a winner with this one. Talk about having excellent lighting!! This one is exactly what we all want and strive for.
Love the way the subject is angled too, it just presents itself in such an elegant way. Really like it. Bravo.
annjackman (21899) 2014-04-04 7:49
I am beginning to view our south coast differently since seeing your pictures. I have often thought it rather boring compared with others parts of the UK coast but you show its beauty to me. By taking your photos at interesting times of the day and making best use of light you come up with some stunning images. The diagonal line of posts and golden reflections are magical.
Best wishes, Ann
brianmcc (6219) 2014-04-05 5:13
this is a beautiful coastal scene. the composition with the line of groynes, the light, colours and sharpness are all perfect and help create this very appealing image. i love the glossy reflections on the wet sand.
cornejo (42907) 2014-04-07 11:07
