I Saw a Little Mermaid Again (ii)


"The moment always dictates in my work. What I feel, I do. This is the most important thing for me. Everybody can look, but they don't necessarily see. I never calculate or consider; I see a situation and I know that it's right, even if I have to go back to get the proper lighting."
~ Andre Kertesz

Ekios from Une des iles du Salut, Guyana

I really love the composition, saddly, the damn aminus3 picture compression killed a part of the picture quality :(

Congratulations :)

12 Sep 2009 6:28am

@Ekios: I think Am3 is OK , but the quality of this shot is not as I had in first one - The Little Mermaid . I posted this shot only because of the beautiful shape of the shadow. It really looks cool to me :)) Many thanks !
