Lovely contrast in profiles - one quietly contemplating the sunset, one raring to go for a run in the water. This is so beautifully composed, and neatly cropped.

A very special shot this one..I love the strong straight lines of the sea and the foreground which give the shot impact by slpitting the scene into thirds. The dog and owner also provide immediate impact and lastly the bold silhouettes contrast effectively with the graduated light and colours of the sky. Pure quality. The golden sunlight to one side offers yet another dimension to this multi-facetted shot

I particularly like the fact they are both looking different ways (or is it just one that's looking a different way??) Nicely exposed so that there is just some detail in what would otherwise be a silhouette.

Very well spotted image and excellent exposure control. I like that the silhouettes still have some modelling light on them. Chosing to press the shutter at the moment they both gazed in opposite ways shows a great street photography eye! You should be very proud of this image!Smile
