Sister theme to the Simplicity. Again, feel free to interpret it to your liking.

Photos for the Week #44 competition are to be taken between Apr 12, 2021 and Apr 25, 2021.

1. Anyone and everyone who is interested in eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-9 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by non Pentax cameras are allowed.
Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot, Medium Format, et cetera. But no phones, please.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is
active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.

This photo was somewhat complex to set up. I went out to the South end of Topsail Island to shoot sunset and hopefully the colorful twilight when the sun dips below the horizon, but as luck would have it the sky was clear so it would not be that colorful. However the tide was coming in and I knew there would be a lot of tidal pools forming, I had been to this spot a few times before so I had an idea of some things I wanted to use, including sand patterns, dune grass, and tidal pools. There was a guy out there shooting with what appeared to be a large format camera, I wanted him in the photo. Before I took this photo I was down near where the guy was, so when I came back to the spot I took it from I had to be careful and not track up the sand. I also wanted to get other photos, so I was trying to work pretty fast. With no good sky the ground had to take up the lower two thirds, which was good as I had the growing tidal pools and the ripple marks on the sand/mud flats, and of course the dunes with the grass on the right. I found a spot where the photo appeared somewhat balanced with the photographer and the sun taking up spots about a third of the way in from the sides of the frame. I set the tripod up and composed to to get the ripple marks prominently in the foreground, and the the sky to take up only the upper third. I don't positively remember, but I think the tripod was set up at about 18 inches off the ground. The photo may have been better if I had waited until the sun dipped at least to the horizon, but I was afraid the photographer may move out of the frame (but he actually did not). I took several other photos that evening and got some other that I was happy with. Looking at this again next time I'm out there for sunset I may try to get a silhouette in front of the sun.
