Seashell on the seashore
Lens: DA* 16-50 Camera: K20D Photo Location: Jervis Bay ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: 1/350s Aperture: F11 
Posted By: Ash, 06-14-2010, 12:09 AM

Coming to the last couple of weeks of my stint in Jervis Bay, I took time this morning capturing the everyday stuff on Captain's beach. A pristine shoreline with baitfish visibly being chased by Spanish mackerel right to the shore. I spent some time throwing the beached baitfish back into the sea between shots.

Anyway, here's one of my few keepers from the day.
Looking forward to coming home.

Ash, the foot print on this shot is distracting I think. Great exposure. JIM

Your right Jim.
Looking at it again I tried too much to add interest to the scene.
Something like this would have sufficed:

I would like it without the shell. In the wink of an eye, we can all be gone. ~~~ tracey

Differing opinions here. But a fine poetic message, Tracey.

It's probably just the way I captured the scene - I had shoes on and didn't want to get them wet. That was my biggest obstacle from getting the perspective I wanted.
But thanks for the comments.

Now, perhaps I'm idiosyncratic, but I really like the original shot with the footprint and shell. Not only do I really like the texture and colors, but the footprint being washed by the obviously moving water is an allegory about our relative impermanence by comparison to the shellfish, which have been on earth a heck of a lot longer than us. In your second shot, if the shell was a tad sharper, I think it would be improved.

By the way, it's nice of you to throw the baitfish back, Ash. And I hope your wait to get home goes quickly.

Thanks Tamia - this was the intent of the original image - glad to see others realise this message.
I have been home for a month but again on course, this time only for a few days. Returning home again tomorrow.

Your first photo intrigues me and I think the best. It goes from focus to blur very well and I can feel the water and wonder what has happened. Why didn't the person pick up that shell? Thanks and interesting to read the critiques on this photo. Share some more and thanks Bob

Agree,
I love the textures and colors(excellent mix)
But the print feels a little harsh for the arrangement.

But that's just me...
