You are brave and daring and I love that you focused on the sand prints instead of the sunrise...it's wonderfully composed :)

@Lorraine: Brave? Daring? Not two adjectives usually used to describe me! Thanks for the comment.
A beautifully composed shot Tracey, the textures and details of the footprints and sand are wonderful, and the backdrop is beautiful.

@MaryB: Thanks Mary! I thought it was a bit *different* and therefor intriguing!
A super composition; the sunlight reflected off the water/sand and the shadows and textures of the footprints in the sand are visual treats. But I cheated and looked at your other blog yesterday (got a preview of this one); funny story there.

@Viewfinder: :0) Thanks for looking on my other blog! Unfortunately the small format doesn't present well for the photos, but it gives me a space to blab all my boring stuff! I appreciate the compliment on the photo!
Very good POV. I particularly love that sliver of golden light in the water.

@GJC: Thanks GJC! That was what made the photo different for me. That and the selective focus on the element that one would not think to focus on. Obviously the sun rise would be the first thought. Nothing like a bit of the unexpected!
Nice composition. I like the light on the water leading to the footprint.

I really love the DOF. It is as thought the persons footprints are walking towards the sea.

Love your point-of-view. There's a sense of mystery to this image. Nice!

Great idea, great execution. This is a great series.

Great compo, and very sharp. While you walk, the sea burns.

Nice composition. I like the subtle reflections of light on the water in the distance.

Really awesome shot and concept. Well done!

I agree with others, great composition. You focused on the right spot and I also like the glisten of the sun in the sand.

brilliant use fo shallow depth of field... the footprints really invite one to follow into the hazy distance... the little spots of flare from the sun look like glitter - nice effect!

great composition! Excellent shot!

Another good one in this series. The out of focus background and the light add a special touch.

Great depth of field! I really like how the footsteps seem larger than life, and the light like a fire burning in the background. Nice!
