Just a fun little image this evening; this was a tossoff shot just getting a sense of the light in this little inlet for another setup, but looking over it later I noted the pattern of shadows here so I cropped from a larger version. I had to do a decent amount of PP to manage the light, but I like the end result.

exactly,sometimes such pictures are the best and we notice their uniqueness after some time.
Itīs very nice beach scene,which tanks to these shadows takes on also very strong graphical effect.
It works well in colour,but I think it would be also great in B&W because of this strong light and shadows.
Have a good day

I like the presence of the five figures on the left and their long shadows; four of them at least seem intent on getting wet:-) Your pp work has been to very good effect, but like Krzysztof, I think it would look even better in black and white.

A challenging shot into the light! this looks tricky to get right, but you have done really well with the exposure. I liked the contrast of shadows, back lighting, perspective and for all the shades you have managed to avoid any burnout. This a striking shot with the figures adding live drawing the eyes in as strong focal. Nice capture worth the effort. Congrats, TFS

Suiperbly spotted the moment, Andrew.
Those guys probably unaware they were in juxtaposition and created a unique shadows format on the wet sand.
Light managed fairly good, but the main subject result is the main theme here. Fine DOF and clarity as well.

Your colour version is the best or the two pictures.
This are the most difficult picture to take, through the sun in your lens.
But the shadows are a pleasant part of your picture.
Nice perspective and depth picture.
Excellent captured, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Great moment captured with those four people and shadows marching in line! You are an observant photographer in this one, in a way that requires anticipation too showing you were thinking - the kind of process that makes a good street photographer and requires patience! I have no patience at all that's why I prefer buildings - they don't move!

nice capture of this family walking together to the water. I like the shadows of them too.

A difficult shot shooting into the sun like that, but one that has been very effective in drawing out the shadows. The wide angle works really well, giving the image a very artistic kind of distortion. I've love to see this in B&W, I think it would really work and perhaps would help deal with the slight over-exposure in the sky.
PS: Every time I open you into page, I see bubba, who never fails to put a smile on my face. I hope he's well, must be almost 1 now!
