Crete 2010 #26 Beach-composition 2

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 9 February 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

In April 2010 I made a photo-trip to Crete. The main goal was surching and documenting the wild orchids and endimic flora of the Island. I already posted some of the species back in april (all images posted between 23/04/2010 and 15/05/2010).
In this series I will be posting mainly cityscapes and landscapes taken on the island during that trip.
For me it is a good occasion to review my images and select only the best and most representative ones from this trip.

@anne: Het is inderdaad een heel ander opzet van beeld. Ik vond hier het tegenlichteffect op het strand wel een mooi toegevoegd element aan de compositie.

Aubélia from Kortrijk, Belgium

Heel mooie foto, rustgevend.

@Aubélia: Gek hoe voor de ene de compositie te druk is , voor jou dan weer rustgevend overkomt. Zo zie je maar dat iedereen op een andere manier naar een foto kijkt. Bedankt voor je commentaar, Aubélia.

@marc battault: Walking on those 'wild' beaches display lots of opportunities for these natural compositions. It's getting dark before you notice :-) Thanks for you comment, Marc. Greetz !

Veronique from Sarrouilles, France

very nice composition and gold color

@Veronique: The golden sunset - not only my favorite in plant- and insect-macro's, but also for landscapes ... Thanks for your compliments again, Veronique.

Marleen from Doesburg, Netherlands

Zelfs een kastanjetak? doet mee aan de natuurlijke compo! Mooi zoals het water het zand zo netjes achterlaat- je ziet goed de waterbeweging:-)

10 Feb 2011 9:34am

@Marleen: Geen kastanjetak (helaas :-) maar doornappel. Het grote verschil: tamme kastanje is lekker, doornappel meestal dodelijk - vergissen is dus geen optie :-). Leuk dat je de waterbeweging kan zien zonder dat je water ziet ... Dat zegt me dat de afbeelding zijn doel heeft bereikt ! Een mooier compliment voor deze foto kon ik me dus niet wensen. Dank je, Marleen !

Golden beach award.. the sand literally looks like gold dust. Very nicely taken.

@¨‘°ºO Dutçh Oº°‘¨: Thanks, Kristen !

Julie Brown from Indianapolis, United States

More of that golden light. I like the DOF and composition of this.

@Julie Brown: The image is taken right in the direction of the undergoing sun. The most difficult part was getting the direct sunlight out of the lens to prevent flare. Glad you like the effect. Thanks, Julie.

Marilla from Turku, Finland

Original composition!

@Marilla: Nature's compositions are always original ! I just had to choise the right angle to get the image right. Thanks again, Marilla. Greetz !
