Evening on Indian Rocks Beach

Filed under: Christina — Christina @ 01:10



  1. There’s been quite a lot of good use of oof foreground recently: here’s another good example. Nice timing on the waves.
    But the thing that really makes this more than an ordinary beach shot are all the birds amoung the people.

  2. There are lots of good things in the composition here. The building is well placed on the left as is the subsiding wave by the girl. Then the unperturbed couple of birds match the couple walking away along the water’s edge. A nicely subdued sun is the icing on an already prize-winning cake. A lovely shot.

    One would never know that the world has any troubles!

  3. Although the big birds grab the attention, it is the small birds, and their echo of the child, that makes this shot.

  4. There’s a lot to like here, but my eye keeps going to that peninsula of tide reaching up the beach in the foreground. A funny thing to get caught on, but I like the way it matches up with the crouching figure, like they fit together.

  5. I agree there is a lot to like. Yet again there is the magic light. The old couple in the surf and the two birds in the surf echo nicely. I also like the way the surf licks up to the girl, it links her to the surf.

  6. I’ll add my vote of appreciation for a wonderful shot here. The oof foreground works in allowing you to look past her and see all the extra activity of birds and people.
