Entry 1 of 22
   
 
Beach sunset through the old 'pleasure pier'       ©2017 joshd
Sony ILCE-7RM2       1st place, 210 points
1/400s, f4, ISO 100, 18mm, Manual, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Just cropping and adjusting the highlights and shadows in Lightroom.       Extra Info: Remnants of the 1920's era 'Pleasure pier' at Rio Del Mar Beach in Aptos, CA. Not knowing much about Elliott, I just figured that it always feels good and rejuvenating to walk on the beach at sunset!

    Wow, what an honor ... thank you all! Most importantly, I hope that Elliott enjoyed all of the entries and that they brought some joy to his life! They were all fantastic.

I learned two things from the feedback: first of all I probably should have saved this for the solitude challenge! and second, I may have raised the shadow level a bit too high for some tastes. The detail in there is just so amazing, I had a hard time with that particular slider ;-)

Cheers!

    Congratulations, I'm not surprised. The added person always adds interest to a landscape, in my humble opinion.

    This would have been ideal for the next challenge. It is a lovely photograph and my top pick. Clever getting the sun behind the pier while still seeing the figure and his shadow.

    i've been a beach person most of my adult life. this is great. nice pp.
and the theme spot on for the next challenge too.

    Nicely done. I think you've given Elliott something to look forward to. Great composition, with the figure and sun captured at just the right spot.

    A lovely photo! It looks so inviting with the interesting structure and the sunlit beach. I love the figure framed between the posts.

    That's funny, I was thinking about saving this for the solitude challenge. I'll just have to come up with something better! FYI, this is a single image capture - no bracketing/HDR, stacking, or any type of composite! And I didn't stage the walking person, I just happened to see him walking and tried to capture the moment ... thanks for the comments!

    Very striking - well-conceived and executed, though maybe you should have saved it for 'Solitude'. The HDR effect looks a bit unreal IMO, but nicely done, nonetheless.

    This is superb. What a beautiful shot in every way and I think it fits the theme, somehow. I don't know if you staged that man there or not, but the result is fantastic.

    Gorgeous shot! Would've been good for the solitude challenge also :)

Top pick easily!
