A lovely, crisp composition and the colors are excellent.

@Michael Skorulski: Cheers Michael! This is one of my favorite seaside neighborhoods... i simply love the well kept footpaths lined with these majestic trees and with a view out over the rocky shores and beaches and into the grand blue-green harbour waters. It is certainly an amazing location! Thank you kindly!
Great perspective, good detail is that a person is walking into it!

@Thomas Griffioen: Thanks Thomas -- Yes, i was following a small part of wedding procession as they made their way to the beautiful restaurant on the pier (not pictured) for the reception. :)
Norton Pines? we call them Norfolk Pines here, or are they a variation ? Love that time of day, everything looks beautiful.

@lisa v: Thank you kindly Lisa -- and yes --pardon me! I used to call them 'Norton' pines by accident... and it looks like subconsciously i still want to call them that! I had another photo earlier where i had correctly labeled them as Norfolk Pines... but i must have forgotten to change the name on this photo! :D Thanks for the heads up!
Beautiful perspective, colours and composition

Extremely nice color tone, and nice suburban area. The row of pines trees looks lovely, good one.

@Observing: Fairlight and Manly are amazing communities -- quite rich too... but this is where my circle of friends resides -- and i have been completely drawn to the area since i first discovered it in 1994. I feel absolutely wonderful and that all is good and possible when i am there... :)
excellent place perfectly captured

Great angle and composition, nice one.

@Graham Russon: Cheers mate! It is a bit of an unconventional angle, but it came to me... and in retrospect i feel lucky that i took the shot! :D
Ah... the Norfolk Pine... never tire of that tree...
29 Jun 2008 8:22pm
@Fliss: Thanks Fliss! Aren't they majestic? My favorite tree in NSW! And luckily they have so many around Sydney! :)

@Putter: Hello and kind thanks! :)

@Scotfot: Cheers mate! :)
I am not very sure what make you take this picture but I suppose that it is the pine alignement and perspective with the nice warm light on the foliage and the grass on the right. If the buildings are not what you really wanted to show you could crop part of them on the left, but keep the walking man.

@akarui: Thanks for the comment and feedback Akarui! I'm am not sure what drove me to take this picture -- of course i was certainly aiming to get the majestic row of Norfolk Pines, but beyond that, i think i was merely trying to open a door to this location. It's something i strive to do in all my photos -- at least the ones i compose vertically. I am literally hoping to 'offer' a doorway to step through to a location, which is why i tend to have more foreground space at foot level -- a viewer could literally 'step' over the edge of the frame and find themselves right in the picture -- if that reality was possible! :D As for the cropping of buildings -- i feel no need to remove them, it would only de-center the photo and it wouldn't give an adequate representation of the area. This composition gives a hint to the viewer that this would be a lovely seaside path for walking amongst beautiful houses on one side and the water (not pictured) on the other. It is just the taste of all these elements, i suppose, that is the real reason i took this photo -- i was trying to capture the beautiful space between beautiful spaces. But thank you kindly for your honesty! Cheers. :)
i love the colors.. great composition!

@pirut: Cheers Pirut! Hope your weekend was excellent! :)
This is very nice.

@Viewfinder: Cheers mate! Thanks for stopping by! :)
Beautiful rhythm! and you have managed to make us want to "'step' over the edge of the frame and find ourselves right in the picture " :) at least for a moment.

@Lilo: Thank you mate -- Cheers to you! :)
Nice perspective also love the to parallel elements with different texture
I believe with some changes in composition it could be a wonderful shot. It made me think if I find some place like there what I need to have in my shot -- but all of this do not affect the beauty of this shot.

@Artin Zaman: Cheers Artin! Thanks for the great feedback and comments! :)
That's neat. Not really a scene I would have --without assistance-- associated with Australia.
30 Jun 2008 11:38pm
@Twelvebit: Cheers Mate -- looks like you need to take a trip -- Australia is my favorite place in the world... and for many reasons... tropical beaches, tropical rain forests, vast open desert, amazing mountainous wilderness, gorgeous pastures and fields... underwater marine sanctuaries... Australia really has it all! :)
Well, I still can't think of the name of that horror movie, but some much better Australian movies --that actually take place wholly or partly in Australia versus just being made by Australians, are: The Cars That Ate Paris, The Dish, Lantana, The Last Wave, Oscar and Lucinda, Picnic At Hanging Rock, Rabbit Proof Fence, Shine, Walkabout, The Proposition, and The Tracker --not the crappy American TV movies of that title, but this one, that takes place in 1922 and is about an Aboriginal Tracker, directed by Rolf de Heer.

@Twelvebit: sweet -- ok half of them i know -- will have to research the other half! :) thanks again john! and do yourself a favor and get to oz for a holiday -- you won't believe what you've been missing!
These simple elements could have been just another snapshot in lesser hands, but you've created a great image here through careful composition and great processing.

@Andrew Gould: Thank you kindly Andrew! I really love this pic! I am still not sure why i took this pic -- but i do know i was meant to! :) I know the composition is semi-controversial to some people and it certainly is unconventional, but i really liked what i was seeing when the thought struck me... and i am pushing myself to be less 'composed' and more 'open'... not sure if i succeeded necessarily on those terms... guess time will tell. Thank you again!
