This picture was taken at the Tel-Aviv beach on a summer evening.
I like it for the special effect the long exposure did to the sea, I find it very special.
about the name, if you look on the bright spot on the sea, try to imagine what it is, this is what the name is all about.

Interesting shot! I like it. It is almost like if someone has left this chair on the surface of another planet. Seems that there a ghost going...
Technically and graphically, I think a little rotation CW and a tighter crop (less black on top) would enhanced this picture. I would also erase the far background line of lights over the see (?). This line bring nothing, just disturb, in my point of view. A note about your picture, its story, would be great.

Very beautiful. The composition is nice (though I would crop off a bit of sky) and the slow exposure was a good choice. The only reason you don't get a Big Smile is because the focus seems a little off and the white towel is a touch overexposed.

The long exposure has given this a surreal effect which I find strangely compelling. I agree with Isabelle about eliminating the distant lights.

Intersting, moody shot. Seems like a scene from another planet or a movie set. Perhaps you could have captured a sharper image with a shorter exposure and wider aperture.

It looks like snow on the ground but I realize it cannot be. I think you can crop this picture in the top a bit. With a little more DOF we could see the swimmer much sharper. Is the light coming from the left artificial? An interesting shot!
