Long Shadow of a Surfer
Long Shadow of a Surfer
On a Maui, Hawaii, beach in early morning, shot from the 10th floor balcony at our hotel, November 2002. This is the same photo as one I posted a few days ago, but this one does not have the simplifier filter applied.

Thank you so much, Ann, Carolyn, Murry and Jean.

Murry, yes, if I'm just not sure which photo looks best (a slightly buzzed version of something or the original), I submit them both. :-) And I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that you like the unbuzzed version better. :-) It is true that the simplifier filter seems to work best with foliage.

I admit to not seeing the previous release, but I sure like the look of this one.
Beautiful perspective, color and shadow.
Just a beautiful entry, Patricia.

Thank you, Bill! It was scary taking these shots. I was on a very narrow balcony, putting my camera through the bars of the wrought-iron railing. :-)

Thank you very much, Suzie and Ellen! It's always so interesting when you ask for opinions on which version someone likes. You get such different answers. ... Murry, I'm still waiting to hear which version you, the buZZ master, liked better. :-)
