is he sitting on a chair in the ocean or what?
This picture caught my attention immediately. You uploaded this picture in black and white and i have to say that this was a good decision. It makes everything about it here so mystical. I can see that he's glowing a little, its just like you can see the warmth glowing around him (i love it)
The only thing i would have done is sharpen this picture a little or use a tripod. The heaven has an interesting color, i love the shole lightning here. Even that you can only see the man's silhouette.
For me it seems like there is an old man sitting on a chair in the ocean waiting for his love coming back home or something. I love that feeling he gives us here. <3

xoxo, bine

This is amazing. I don't know where to start. First of all I must say that you made a very good work with the exposure and shutter speed. It looks like a dream, the light is very good, and the idea is original which is a hard thing to do in today's world.
And one more thing which I appreciate a lot is hard work put into this photo. I can imagine how hard it was to capture this, having to be very still, but it was definitely worth it.
You did a very good job on the technical side and you did a brilliant job on the emotional side. A great synergy of those two, no one can deny that!

I really like your photograph! It reminds me of a Tom Waits like portrait, very artsy and eccentric but in the best possible ways! It's as if one has turned their back on society, staring out to sea at nothingness because that nothingness holds more promise and peace than the world at his back.
