About the Image(s)

Every time New Jersey has big nor'easter Mother Nature redesigns ocean and bay shorelines. While exploring Sandy Hook National Sea Shore Park this week my husband and I were amazed to see a new long, narrow spit of sand extending way out in the bay. This photograph was taken from raised marsh platform quite a distance from the spit of sand. Liked lonely walker juxtaposed against Highland hills and cloudy blue sky. Processed in Snapseed.

Including the vegetation in the foreground adds depth to the scene. Good placement of the horizon. Perfect placement for the person walking. It adds scale to the scene and that human touch. Nicely done.   Posted: 11/07/2021 14:37:22

Your explanation made this shot more interesting. That new spit of sand - a term I was not familiar with - created an oasis of sorts in the middle of the water. As Dave mentioned, the person adds scale and context. It seems to be cold, so might suggest warming the image a bit. Nice shot.

I especially like the clouds in this image. We have been getting wonderfully interesting clouds this last couple of weeks and you have captured one of those scenes really well. Nicely seen. I am ambivalent about Bob's comment. He is surely correct that warming the image would be nice, the image as it is shows well what fall is like this year in the east, so I like that.   Posted: 11/08/2021 15:54:15

The skies and capturing the walker in just the right place is super. It really looks like a roadway. So glad you explained.   Posted: 11/08/2021 18:54:50

Thanks for your observations everyone. I like how the straight line of one of the clouds mirrors the straight line of the sand spit. The solo walker was taking a chance as that newly formed sand mound can be unstable and the bay is noted for its nasty rip currents.   Posted: 11/12/2021 07:41:01

The tiny walker makes the image.He/she stands out despite the size. The scene seems a bit flat to me. Easy fix in Snapseed   Posted: 11/13/2021 06:58:36

Nice use of foreground, middle ground and background. As I was mentioning in Bob's image, having a person as a small part of the scene can add context. Nice that you caught the person in the act of walking with leg separation. It looks to be a cold blustery day but wondering if the exposure needs to be increased slightly.   Posted: 11/13/2021 10:16:17
