Normally an image that contains a void such as this would do little for me, I would have the feeling I was missing some detail.

Were this image is concerned it adds, not detracts from the detail, the drift on the sky pulls the figure on the cliff into a sharper focus, drawing the eye to were it needs to look.

This gives a feeling of a loss, the lone figure stood on the edge of an abyss, an image, to work must give the viewer an emotion, it must make you ask questions of what you are looking at to work, this image works.

It nice to see a mix of styles in this, its not unusual to see this artist use motion within the sky but the combination with the static foreground gives this a lot more depth.

The use of black and white compliments this, colour simply would not have worked.
What do you think?

This is a most interesting photograph, a kind of "more than meets the eye".
First and above all, it is a fascinating nature shot. What particularly appeals to me is the contrast of the rock, which is perfectly in focus, and the sky, which is blurred by movement. The main focus of the picture is just on the far left, which distinguishis it from most photos depicting similar kinds of scenery (most of them have the person in the center).

There is more to this, however. The single person standing on the rock takes this picture gives it a deeper meaning. Most simply speaking, it could be depicting loneliness, but the atmosphere is not simply desolate or depressing, as the bright sky seems to add some kind of purpose to it. It is a strength of this picture that it requires a second look and leaves room for interpretation.

hi Martin, I love this image, it moves something deeply in me. I hope you don't mind that I used it attached to a rather personal blog post ( [link]) please let me know if you prefer it to be removed, or credits to be changed in any way.

This (and similar pictures of yours) reminds me very much of a short film I saw a few months ago. It was a surreal movie involving a guy waking up in the dark and discovering he's inside a wooden box. He escape and finds he's on an island... a very tall island... surrounded by an ocean. There is no escape. Then he sees another island like his and maybe another person on it. It's very weird but great.

very nice shot tbh, fantastic.
I do agree with morbidthegrim tbh, black and white was/is defo the way to do this.
This must be a day shot with ND filters right? I wouldn't of been happy standing that close to the cliff in the dark. :shudders:
