A woman, a kid, a bird. Minimalist beach.

 D200 ir, 70-200mm 3.5-5.6 vr

  As a side note, the d200 was not very accurate with gps metadata until now. The foolography + gps module makes the positioning spot on.

Strangely pleased,  but not surprised? Elegant use of negative space in a strong composition.

I can only add to the praise. So much tension in this image, great image.

Thank you all for the nice words. I'm very happy you enjoyed it

   Birna, I don't know exactly what are you asking but it provoques a deeper thought in the process of picture-taking. I'm surprised every time.
  I have been reading with interest the post by Michael about Allan Walls and the mental state and awareness they put in their process. Eric seems to know what they are talking about too. Not me. If anything, I think mine maybe the opposite. There is a sense of no-thought, no-ego, no-questions when I'm "in" . I can say that I shot by instinct, so much as to consider every pressing of the shutter as an act of serendipity, instead of one of deliberate action, like there is someone else doing it...but I digress. All this to tell you that yes, many of the images I take do surprise me when I get home. That's not to tell that I will like them  :) but they are little gifts and in this particular case, an image that took me by surprise, that it is in infrared and "out there" compositionally, I do feel strangely -and wonderfully- pleased.

    I hope this makes any sense out of my head.

What you describe is an echo of my own experiences in photography.

Ah, that struck a chord.
It may well be a reason why I feel such emotional response and inspiration from your work.

   Thanks once again.

  I completely agree Mr. Jakov. Many of the things I do, I do trying to catch those.  ;)
