I like the colour offset (orange from the light against the blue of the darkness) excellent. I also like the way the individual is looking outwards beyond the cove, inlet or harbour.

Thanks for sharing

I, also, like this shot very much. Was this shot at dusk or was there a bright moon. There seems to be some light coming from overhead.

I think I could really relax and enjoy sitting out on that pier in the evening. Just let all the day's stress melt away and soak in the beauty of the moment. Oops, a poet and didn't know it!

the shot was taken about half an hour after sundown... not full night, but well after dusk.i shot it from a monopod, because i'd left my tripod home earlier in the afternoon, and this was a spur-of-the-moment stop on my way home. i was in a small waterfront park on the shore of Lake Washington, just east of Seattle, and there were lamps on posts spaced at intervals along the shoreline. it just seemed like a very peaceful, relaxing image.

great shot. My favourite photos are the ones that tell me a story (whether its the right one or purely from my imagination - LOL). The absence of the trappings of civilization in the foreground gives me the impression this man has escaped the city for a simpler place.
