Default Contemplation

Went out for a walk with the 70-200 and 5DmkII for the first time since I've been in Egypt.... man do I feel conspicuous with this kit, but it is so much nicer to shoot with than the SX1.

While walking by the water I spotted this guy taking everything in.

Awwww.... Just paint the lens black so that it doesn't stand out as much.

Nice image Mark.

You bet! Great job - Title captures the mood (or the mood makes the title?)!

Who cares - It works!

I think the title is just perfect for this shot - this guy looks like he is totally lost in thought! A very nice photo Mark!

He really was enjoying looking at the Mediterranean. If he was to turn around however, it would be much less relaxing as the road is 5 lanes in each direction, not that Egyptian drives have the concept of lanes!

Very nice. Two monotones in one pic -- the brown-hued foreground and the blue-toned background.

If it were a painting, it can be done very cheaply. You just need four tubes of paint -- brown, blue, and white. But nothing about the finished product would spell "cheap".

In any event lovely capture.

I love seeing good Photography. I agree the title helps the image, but this one can stand on its own. I especially like the placement of his feet. Those tell as much of the story as the title does Well done.
