Seems all three dogs are in their own world, they have things to do. Then there are the people, close and afar, with their things to do.

Geno, I hadn't thought of the picture the way you describe it but of course it's true. I had been trying to catch the four dog (there is one behind the father and son, tail just visible) for about half an hour they just loved the water. Everyone caught up in there own world. Thanks for pointing that out. Regards

I like this scene. The numbers work and I too like how the people and dogs are doing there own thing and yet 'connected'.

very nicely seen martin. It has lots of possibilities, and titled very well. I am wondering if it could be made a bit brighter or with more contrast to punch up the impact of the sand dunes, and it may be an optical illusion, but it seems to be sloping a bit to the right. otherwise, very well seen and presented. george

Frank, I am glad you feel the the units are connected after Geno's comment I did wonder if there was too much "space" between the little groups.

George, after your comment about the sloping sensation I check and realized I had posted the wrong shot. (That comes of living with a picture too long and trying to shake something out of it. LOL) Corrected shot now on display. Cheers!

'Warm', Vaggelis is was boiling last year. LOL. Though I think you mean emotional appeal and if it was I thank you for that. I was worried everyone was too unconnected. Regards

AGree with George, that it looks to be slanting to the right, but it is an illusion. When I thought such, I checked the people across the water, they were indeed perpedicular to theleft and right sides... Cheers.

Hi Geno, it's a strange optical illusion I checked against the buildings behind. Thanks and regards.
