The position of the hook and the man’s shadow on the rust colored sheet pilings really drew my attention. I processed this image with Topaz Clarity and Aperture 3 to enhance the texture and colors while maintaining the warmth of the early morning sunlight on the scene.

Love this shot! Love how the rope gives it a pop of color and draws my eye into all the detail of the photo….really nice shot:}!
Thanks Karen I too find the rope to be a pertinent element that draws attention to the rest of the image.
Sorry to say I would have to disagree with Karen if the composition is the shadow there should be nothing else in the frame to draw your eye away. The rope then becomes a distraction. To include the ropes maybe a blurred depth of field would be less drawing.
Actually I see the shadow as part of an overall composition which is why I chose to crop it and include the textures and colors of the foreground elements. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.
I like this shadow series, Nick. This is particularly rich with those warm tones.
Thanks again Karen I too found the richness of the tones appealing.
Well seen and executed superbly (tones, design, etc…). Very inspiring and the shadow silhouette add a sense of mystery.
Thank you for your comments Caroline. It’s very rewarding when someone takes the time to comment and to articulate why they like an image.
