Tags Dauphin Island Beach, Oil Rig ← citycenter → new breed 19 replies on “loner” I like the lone tower and the high contrast treatment of the water. It helps make this a very strong picture in these days of so much damage and ineffective remedies. like the composition and the light on the water. very nice. Rian, this really is a telling image today with the explosion and the spill still occuring in the Gulf. It’s obvious we all use oil, gas etc…..but maybe they should have a disaster recovery plan prior to drilling. Seems to me that what has been going on is rather hit and miss, understandably it is a deep well, more reason for a disaster plan as I see it. Great shot, I love the way the ocean looks as well as the towering platform. beautiful how you made the water look so turbulent, and contrasted it with the sky. At least this rig’s not leaking —- YET! Haha, i was waiting for the image to be loaded since i had only the top : superb ! The mirror of the sea, your minimalist compo, the sky. Excellent, nothing to say, except Bravo!!! Really nice shot! Love all the grey in this photo. it’s a world hating oil right now, so this is a courageous picture 🙂 i like the ominous black / dark tones here. I wish they’d dismantle every one of them. The water in your image looks black…very fitting. the grays and silvers in this are beautiful. and your title and message are powerful – it feels like 3/4 of the world is sick and angry about the leak. impressive dark tones fabulous image . love this feel. water looks amazing ! somewhere along the distance it stands…. Is this the rig that’s causing all the trouble? 🙁 wonderfull refelections and a well choosen format Great work! This is a really strong visual image! Fits the current mood. Seems so lonely. This is a nice topical-editorial shot. The rig looks menacing. The water even has an odd feel to it with all the pindots of sunlight.
