I was out this afternoon shooting fall foliage when I came across this fisherman just as the sun was setting. I exposed for the reflection in the water and captured this silhouette. What do you think? C&C are always appreciated...thanks,

Wow, Jim, you should print and frame that. What a wonderful shot. The ripples in the water make it even better.

Excellent work, sir.

I like the colors. My only "nit" is composition wise. Since the fisherman is casting to the right side, I'd like to see more from that side. But maybe the colors were not as colorful on that side.

Still nice capture.

Mark - thanks...this is new ground for me...I'm actually learning to get "out of the box" for a change

Mike - Thanks. I agree on the composition. But, as you suspected there is nothing to see to the right...I cropped the photo to catch as much color as I could.

I had another try at cropping the original image...does this work better in terms of composition?

Thanks,

I actually like the first one better. :) Very nice rippling effect on the water. It gets dark so early now. I really dislike seeing the sunset at 5. And it's only going to be earlier until Dec.

That first one looks good. Second one looks odd.

Jim, they're both good, but I'd actually like to see less room on the left and more on the right, as he's casting toward the right, but it's still a great shot.

I guess we are going to vary.

First image - I would remove approximately the left half. I'm assuming that the fisherman is the central figure - the reflection of the large tree keeps drawing my attention away from the fisherman.

Second image - I'd do a vertical crop about midway between left edge and fisherman.


When did voluptuous become voluminous?
