Ernest, Nikita, Ruud, Jack, Giovanni,
many thanks for your encouraging comments!
@Jack: yes, the hills,... in fact, I slightly burned them (maybe a tad too much) - my idea was to get a dark, slightly threatening undercurrent into the picture - something, the person on the pier may want to escape from.
This seems a somewhat symbolic picture that conveys a quiet and gently wistful mood. The long angled pier, the man barely visible at the very end; the placid sea; the fading colors of sunset - all the elements play their roles very well...except those far hills which somehow seem to specific for the iconic nature of the picture.
very nice serene photograph with superb composition. The small figure of a person, almost "faded" into water, adds a more dramatic and interesting element to the story and a new interpretation possibility of this scene.
A beautiful composition with very nice lighting, Wolfgang!
