The sparkiling reflection of the sun off the ocean adds to the backdrop of the silhouette of these youngsters capturing the proverbial Kodak moment.

Selvin,
I had to look hard to find two of the required elements but they are there. You have the light patterns in the waves and some reflections in the wet sand.

The silhouetted people are great. Overall, this is a great shot.

Cal

p.s. Some shadows in the sand, also, so you got all three!

Cal,

Thanks for the comments. THe shadows are a bit complex, note behind the girl on the right. It starts off at one angle and then suddenly changes direction.

Aloha

Selvin,
I have been going through and editing my remarks on posted photos to ask people to be sure to include the full challenge title "Light, Shadows, and Reflections" in the subject line. I would like to ask you to do likewise. Thanks.

Cal

Beautiful shot Selvin. I can feel the warmth of the sun and the sand. I'd love to get back to Hawaii someday!



Nice to see you're still here. I haven't been here for a while. I'm still using my G3.Hoping to get a Rebel this Christmas.

Keep posting those great pics!

Jazcan,

As Cal noted, welcome back. Haven't heard from you in a long time.

Thank you very much for your comments. Occasionally,I wander the beaches of Hawaii just enjoying the scenery and taking a few pictures. This photo op just happened as I was hurrying to get a sunset shot.

Just saw Mississauga on the newds as a potential target for your local terrorists. Hope the Mounties got them befroe they could do any mayhem.

Aloha

Aquote from Selvin


"I don't think this picture qualifies for the challenge. I see some light shining on the waves, I don't see any shadows and certainly no reflections."

Since this is Cal's chellenge, I'll let him make the final determination but I'm not optimistic.

Aloha

Cenote,

Please note the shadows cast by the people on the beach in addition to the light shining off the waves. I did not note any shadows and reflections from the boat. There is a silhouette of the boat. Perhaps there are other shadows or reflections I missed. Please indicate.

Aloha

Just for fun I am going to say something here.

Technically, the photo lacks the light aspect (a direct light).

The sun light you see in the photo is actually a reflection of the sun off the surface of the water.

The shadows are represented in the backs of the waves (though small). Without the backs of the waves being in a shadow you would have no contrast with which to identify it as having relief.

One might argue that the reflected sun light is both a reflection and a light source in this photo. That is up for debate.

*smile*

Just my two cents worth.
