[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This winter my Husband and I took a trip to Florida for the weekend prior to spending a week in South Carolina. We stopped here at a resturant for lunch , there were alot of guys out at the end of the pier Fishing. No one swimming though as their were flags up for rip tides. It was a beautiful day and we had a great lunch!

The photo I just added a border , resized and sharpened to post here.

A thoughtful composition Donna, although with the inclusion of the palm leaves in the FG I presume you'd want them sharper than they are - so maybe a smaller aperture and longer exposure would have worked for a better and wider DOF.

I like the scene you've presented here.


Bonjour Donna.
Belle composition avec des lignes transversales bien placée dans le volume de l’image.
Les couleurs sont parfaites bien mise en valeur par un avant plan. Félicitation
Bonne journée.

Hi Donna,

Impressive creativity and result. Congratulations! GReat POV used towards the pier. GReat presentation and PP work. TFs.

Hello Donna
Nicely composed image with the flax in the foreground. The orange sand shows up well too.
Unfortunately the image is slightly tilted to the left - the water is going to run out soon...
And I bet the fishermen love this wharf to go fishing off.

Hello Donna,

HI Donna
A very nice reminder of the good old days when I would winter in Florida. Obviously the wind would waver the palms so getting them sharp would be out of the question.
I love the composition and the results.

Hello Donna
Great capture
I like the light and all the deatils that are fantastic
Well done
Best regards
