Many things can actually happen on the shapes of the floor of the promenade that runs along the beach, if you find a good point of view and you look carefully...
"I'm walking the dog", written by Cliff and Tex Grimsley:
I'm a-walkin' the dog
And I'm never blue
I'm a-walkin' the dog
I ain't thinkin' 'bout you
Don't need no one
To tie me down
I'm a-walkin' the dog
And a-paintin' the town
Such an easy life
I never knew
Until the day
That I left you
Well, I'm a carefree lad
That's seen the light
I'm a-walkin' the dog
All the day and all night
Well, I'm full of pep
I just can't grow old
I got a one-track mind
So I've been told
But I'm fancy free
I don't worry no how
And, I'm walkin' the dog
All the law will allow
( to hear the song, you can see this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t42XFnpyj9s )

What a huge shadow gerat composition I wish the man also in the composition but I think it is impossible from the point of you.
delnaja (2056) 2008-07-08 2:47
superb capture like I like them, and well composed.
The feeling of another world... an alien and his dog : )
riodda (617) 2008-07-08 2:47
I would give you 10 point if possible for this picture.
I really love the framing, and the shadows of the man and the dog on the pattern of the floor it's really nice.
The only thing i would change is to put in BW with some strong contrast.
Anyway great picture, thanks for sharing.

Shalom Daniel. Something from a weird dream, menacing and comical at the same time.Marvelous background- so sharp and with interesting curves.Enigmatic. Regards. Klaudio.
smarcell (19965) 2008-07-08 2:54
A very special picture. Clever idea and perfect POV, with such long shadows seen from above.
luluwi (224) 2008-07-08 2:55
Wow! I like pictures of shadows on the ground, especially whene the ground is such a coarse asphalt!
Curious your choice to post it shadow-oriented.
Looks like african wooden statues!
lestans (17168) 2008-07-08 2:57
what a composition!
Great picture. I like it also because you show the "real"dog, but not the man.
CMJC (4036) 2008-07-08 2:58
un très beau cadrage et un extraordinnaire rendu avec l'ombre immense mais aussi le granité au sol
jasmis (58006) 2008-07-08 3:04
Smart idea and really impressive result. A piece of art despite the common theme.
Valerka (8171) 2008-07-08 3:05
A nice shot with a humorous touch and a good play of light and shadow.

super playshow of shadows

... but it also takes a very good eye to discover these things. When I see them on TE I try to remember, when I stand there I can't see a thing :) I love your long shadow of the person and how you use it through your whole picture. Funny to see the dog twice and the shadow makes me smile, he seems more important :) Barbara.

nice shadow composition. good sunset tones
pavement patterns makes it particular..it seems the shadow is going upstairs on the cyrcle!
Morac (27723) 2008-07-08 4:41
It is beautiful and strange composition.
It is also an excellent work with the shades and the light..
Great picture : I place it in my topic : Shades

polpo56 (15136) 2008-07-08 5:29
a great shot, very well composed.
Good idea, well realized.
vinicio (23423) 2008-07-08 5:52
Excellent and vertiginous image, I much like how you have used both the low light and this beautiful floor, compliments Daniel.
jonathan_hart (21276) 2008-07-08 6:01
great combinaison of shadows and graphism, well seen and well framed
Gerrit (51935) 2008-07-08 9:01
Ha, even better than the one before. An excellent point to take some great pictures., Daniel.
Edyta_B (8) 2008-07-08 9:48
Great photo for me! I like how you composed the frame, love the shadows lying but walking, nice light and colours. I reflect on this how this photo would look like if you removed the dog and the men's legs.
TopGeo (38216) 2008-07-09 1:17
Hi Daniel!They are times where also a shade with a good glance can become interesting picture. Here you achieved him I praise you.
bantonbuju (51815) 2008-07-09 2:36
one more play with long shadows and textures... well done, daniel, particularly with that diagonal spread of the man's shape...
hispic (9652) 2008-07-09 2:39
Excellent shadow art! you have produced it with an exquisite background that the dog is stepping forward one step from the curved part.
Have a nice day, Hisashi
messenger1 (1033) 2008-07-09 6:18
Hello, Daniel -
Great imagination to turn the shot so that the elongated shadows are the stars of the show. I really like the textures and tones and curved pattern of the surface of the promenade. Surreal feel, like a cartoon - very well done.
marietom (34609) 2008-07-09 7:29
Excellent, ce jeu d'ombres, si allongées, et si belles !
AyseGurel (574) 2008-07-09 11:37
very clever way of playing with light and shadow..nearly unreal impression when you first look..
have a nice eveining
syd1946 (18663) 2008-07-10 0:42
Amazing play with the light to bring out the shadow in that way...Beautiful and impressive at the same time,I enjoy it very much!
Have a nice day,
devimeuxbe (58557) 2008-07-10 0:45

leo61 (0) 2008-07-15 10:41
Wow you had a good eye to see this and managed a great shot.Perfect framing and lightcontrol.These curves give a nice graphism to the image.
Asiulus (1184) 2008-07-22 23:36
Marvellous - so clear and abstract, I live it - maybe the most of the whole serie.
josepmarin (58357) 2008-07-26 11:56
Your creativity in this composition is obvious in the result that you have obtained.
Excellent graphism on having played with the long shades of the man and his dog and the geometry of the pavement, and good idea when the image to turn 180 º.
michiels (4170) 2008-08-07 5:06
awesome, very well seen and extremely original .In my favs !!! great colours too.
suhan (3552) 2009-05-28 2:38
