Early Morning Exploration

Posted by john4jack (Corvallis, Oregon, United States) on 29 April 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Max had a ball. Note the birds in the middle cloud; they really show up on a large print.

Nikon D700 F/8.0 ISO 200 24 mm (35mm equiv.)

I love the reflection on the water, right below the birds. Great angle and beautiful color!

A magnificent shot. This one really hits home for me.
Now who gets to bathe Max after he has finished his wet and sandy explorations? :-)

the place and the light are interesting. but about the viewpoint, i don't find an harmony of the present elements of the photo. but of course you may disagree as you did this shot, it's your intention.

29 Apr 2011 10:26am

@JCJ: Because I find your work so exceptional, I need to reflect on your comment.

What a compo and colors! Splendid. I like the fly of birds in the background but I'm less convinced by the presence of Max on the foreground. Superb picture.

Love the composition and the birds, the foreground is delicious. Unusual for you to present a sloping horizon though.

Oh man, Jack- talk about one of somebody's very very best... This beauty is one for you in that category to be sure (and that comment is a LOT harder to make for your work than it is for mine)! Absolutely EVERYTHING about this compositon is masterful and so, so beautiful. I don't even know where to begin! Max brings the fun into the scene - he is so cute!!! Butthe entire imnage is so wonderful. The sand, the sun on the rock, the framing, the color, the tones, the mood, the sky, the clouds.. and happy Max!! .I just left Bill's where he put me at the shore of Mono Lake..and now here we are at Bandon on the shore enjoyinig company of creature and nature!! I love this one, Jack...How I would love to be there now!

This is such a fine beach shot. I like the old branch, dog and water as a foreground for these huge rocks and the distant ocean. I wish we could show some pictures larger...I hope minus3 one day adds that ability.
