A fine image. I especially like the little ridges of sand. Note to self: tilt camera more. smile
vz-nostalgia: Careful with tilting, Larry. You might fall over the board. smile
nice study
B&W is perfect for this type of shot
Cheers

vz-nostalgia: Do you always speak in short sentences, Rob? smile
I'll say this once again... Kids! Are you paying attention??? This IS how it's done! Bravo.
vz-nostalgia: smile Easy now, Alan. You keep forgeting about the First Law of Nostalgia, which spelled in my About page by the pen of Marcus Aurelius. smile

vz-nostalgia: ...a play of light and shadow...
isn't that the essential part of any good photograph, rem la? smile
Sort of picture one sees in an exhibition, and rightly so.
vz-nostalgia: are you talking here of Tate or the Rick'n'Bubba's Museum of Wonder, Bill? smile

Oh yes, a highly artistic graphic pic- your style! I like the falling/sloping movement of the wooden fence and the 'gentle' wire- a fine light-and-shadow- play- a feeling of half chaos- half order!
I looked out for the "wave/s" and I found their traces in the sands of the seaground! I always love the natural curved patterns, created by the seas, by wind and weather!
vz-nostalgia: aha. someone finally admitted I have a style, and not just being repetitious. smile

vz-nostalgia: "Makes you wonder what exactly they are trying to separate."
Each one of us has our own artificial barrier to overcome, Ms. Ingrid. Some of which are built by others, but more often we erect them ourselves.

...of an artificial separation,

Hmmm?

I am thinking "sand drift".
vz-nostalgia: some will think of "sand drift", while others see the "drifting souls". It's all in our minds, Ray.
Definitely a worthy artistic picture. Just wish I was like minded.
vz-nostalgia: " Just wish I was like minded".
What a boring world that would be, if all of us were like minded, Ron. smile
vz-nostalgia: I'll toast for that.
Ciao, Ms. Stef.

This is stunning Vik: worthy of the highest praise
vz-nostalgia: could be, but don't you forget, Chris, I declaired Nostalgia a praise free zone. smile
Wonderful. I like the mood and lightning. Great!
vz-nostalgia: the mood? really? what kind of mood is here, Thomas? smile
how the hell can a wee bit of a wooden fence look so good Victor, masterful composition and anglesmile
vz-nostalgia: for some it's just a piece of junk, for you, my friend, a piece of wonder. smile
It's all in our mind, Tim. smile
A well composed shot at a jaunty anglesmile What is jaunty anyway??
vz-nostalgia: you're asking me, Nig? smile

You slipped and on your way down managed to catch this picture. Not too bad considering.

Great composition smile
vz-nostalgia: If not for the damn banana peel, you all will be looking at an old broken fence, not at the wave of separation smile

Perfect combination of the real and the graphic performing a harmonious arabesque. Excellent Viktor.
vz-nostalgia: ...a harmonious arabesque... hmmm... I like it. Have to remember this. smile
Talk about stylish! works really well.
vz-nostalgia: Stylish? smile I try to stay away as far from haute couture as I can, Ms. Jamoula. smile
A great graphic compo Viktor. Nice study on light and shadow. All is perfectly balanced.
vz-nostalgia: I thought I graduated long time ago, Flo, but if you call it a study... that means I'm back to the classroom. smile
I really love this shot. I've done the same in the north of France some years ago, but it wasn't so artistic than yours. I'll be back in your website soon.
vz-nostalgia: Well, a few years past since you took that shot in the north of France. I hope you learned a thing or two about fences since then, Stephane. smile

Bonsoir,
Nice graphic shot..Good tones..bravo!
vz-nostalgia: Bonsoir jelb.
You are so concise with your comments. It looks like you are always in a hurry. smile

Interesting black and white frame. Very graphical.
I really love the outcome, nicely done!
vz-nostalgia: Well, graphical and b&w are like twins, inseparable. If a shot is full of graphic lines, there is no doubt it works well in b&w. smile

vz-nostalgia: cynical? oh my. Not a shred, Ilan. The "twins" is maybe not the best analogy. How about a hand and a glove. smile
There are always exceptions to the rule, and your shot is a good example of that. smile
Listen, art is not a precise science per se, and personal opinions will always rule in in the field of arts. There is enough space under the sun for all personal tastes and ideas, from over sugared commercial sweetness of Kenny G to deep spirituality of John Coltrane and many things in between, and I welcome all of them, unless they interfere with my personal liberty or infringe on my property (that last passage is from the Constitution of the United States smile)

vz-nostalgia: how do I get my photos so clear... hmmm... I guess I clean my lenses more often that you, Ms. Zhen. smile Remember an old Jewish joke about old dying Moisha? The Rabinovich family gathered around and one of the kids said: "Tell us your secret, Grandpa. Why your tea always tastes so good". Old Moisha wiggled his finger to get them closer and whispered: "Put more tea into a teapot". smile
What is in your camera is a raw material, Ms. Zhen. I always use photoshop to convert to b&w. There are several ways of doing this and you can find them in any book on digital photography. I have no idea what's wrong with your camera. If it takes good color pictures, there should be no issues in converting them into b&w.
Let me know how you solve the problem.

vz-nostalgia: If you are fond of Bergman, you will most likely enjoy Tarkovsky's movies. Their cinematographic aesthetics are very close. They were friends in real life and inspired each other in their arts despite the difference in age. Here are a few Bergman's thoughts about Tarkovsky:
http://www.ucalgary.ca/~tstronds/nostalghia.com/TheTopics/IB_On_AT.html
Technically, Solaris looks a bit outdated, but still, it's a great movie on a psychological/spiritual level, as well as in terms of an outstanding camera work, which is a trademark of all Tarkovsky movies.
Tell me more about your Russian culture obsessed Mexican friend.
I haven't seen Man On Wire as of yet.
Wow... you have a so good gallery.
I really love the graphism and the composition on this shot.
vz-nostalgia: Glad you enjoyed flipping through Nostalgia, Ms. Patricia.
