The image looks COOL if that helps any, Dolores :0) Another nice silhouette--nice design, colors and mood. Sounds like you're like us--60 miles from the gulf so we don't get any sea breeze just heat and humidity. #43618

This is a wonderful picture Dolores. Love the title. #131717

Dolores Neilson

Hello Murry!! Many thanks for complimenting my fisherman!! Though I have no idea who he is...and he must have wondered what in blazes I was doing! I'm 35 minutes away from Long Island Sound...where I shot this. Yep..our summers can get steaming hot and sultry here...the humidity can be unbearable some days. I long to be back in Maine on those days! THanks again for your post....I'm quite appreciative!

Greetings Jason!! I get two compliments from you...your approval on the image...AND title! How lucky can I get?! THank you so much for taking time to post a complimentary note on this image. It is immensely appreciated!! #131719

Oh my...thank you all for your support on this image! Your comments have warmed my heart...

Hello Monika! I'm extremely delighted you like my sunset fisherman! Thank you for taking time to comment...a pleasure to hear from you always! Happy day!

Thank you to you, Gerda! I appreciate that you've stopped in to support this image! Thank you again for your kindness and encouragement! STay cool!

Hi L.J!! Many thanks for taking time to comment on this shot! I am grateful that you've shown your support also! You're very kind to take the time!

Hello RoB!! I can see you've taken a break from shooting to give to me today! Thank you for your generous comment. Yes! DO get a polarizer...but get a "warming" polarizer. The regular ones from Hoya leave a pallid blue on images that leaves them cold looking. Look for a multicoated "warm circular polarizer"...big difference in your images. Check out www.2filter.com...though I got mine at Singh-Ray because I needed a thin mount for my wide angle. THanks good friend!!

Hi T!! Thank you so much!! How nice of you to take the time to comment on my shot! Your positive comments warms my heart! THank you so much!!

Birdie....THANK YOU!! Thank you for elevating my work to potential winner! You're so kind...and an awesome photographer!


Hello Kathleen!! I'm immensely grateful for your kind comment! In gratitude....
