Hi Donna! Thank you so much for stopping by.

I called it an accidental Photograph. I was going after the misty look and slight vapor rising from the ocean water and out of no-where this guys shows up and It all fell right into place...

Incredible capture Marvin. It's too bad we don't get to see the larger image first as, like in so many cases, the thumbnails don't do them justice. The detail in this image is tremendous. The tonal range, composition and creative use of subject are top notch. This is one of my favorites now.

Michael! you are abolutely right.
I learned to enlarge the thumbnails when I brouse other people's captures.

Even so, The resolution for online viewing is only 72dpi. I have seen some outstanding work on this website and I can only imagine what the actual capture at its native resolution looks like. One day I will figure out how they make their cauptures look so good online at 72dpi.

On the other hand I wont loose hair over it if I cant. It's not getting to the destination what I am after but having the ride of my lifetime what drives me forward.

Thank you for your support Michael.

Marvin
