Featured Photograph - Relaxing on Water

While sifting through pictures from her vacation on the Norwegian Spirit cruise vessel, this photograph taken by Ms. Julie Briggs immediately caught my eye. My initial reaction was, "wow...this looks like something from one of the cruise line's brochures!"

The shadows from the strong sun adds emphasis to the basic shapes found in the shot. For example, the shadows highlight the cylindrical shape of the lemon drink, the roundness of the plate, and the rectangular nature of the purse.

This picture is really great, I can get a good sense of being on the deck of the cruise ship. You are right in the way the shadows work together to create a really dynamic environment.

Overall, great website and some great photographs by some really talented people. I plan to visit often.
