[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The lady with the red umbrella of my previous post was waiting for her bus while a high tide wave crashing over the stone wall was soaking her feet.

I waited a few minutes to get a crashing wave and hopefully, she was still there, the bus was not at the stop, to get something SPECIAL!

Hello Claude,
This photo shows that waiting patiently for the right moment can pay well. It is quite a dramatic photo which makes us worry a bit about the poor woman. Will she make it into the bus before she is drenched? It is a graphically attractive photo too, with the lamppost and the tree on each side of the bus-stand and the violent waves in the background. And of course the orange lines and the block white letters on the black asphalt are superbly eye-catching.
Best regards,

  • Great

Salut Claude,timing parfait pour captuer les vagues qui sont arrivees jusqu'a l'arret du bus,les details ne sont pas le top mais la photo est tres originale!!! Belle journee' et merci,Luciano

Hello Claude,

This is a dramatic scene and you appear to have an elevated position to capture the moment.
I like how the word 'BUS' is included in the photograph which exaggerates what she wanted and want she got!
The greyness of the sea and the leaning tree add to the atmosphere.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

Hello Claude, quite a dramatic scene! Is she going to get wet feet? Probably yes!
I like the composition and especially the inclusion of the BU S letters.
Regards Jean.

a good chance for you to take such a photo

Hi Claude,
Excellent result of waiting the right moment. Weather looks pretty bad, and the lady got her feet wet. I like the BUS text and zigzaging yellow line.

salut Claude,
Un moment de vie quotidienne et inconfortable bien saisi.
La scène est bien cadrée dans cet abri qui n'en est plus vraiment un.
Bonne soirée

Witaj Claude!
This scene makes impression.
The wind effect can be seen after a wave of water.
Good frame and composition.
Nice colors and light.
Person add flavor to this picture.
Warm regards.

Salut Claude,
C'est pris au bon moment, c'est cela que l'on nomme une vague submersive. Bon effet avec la présence de cette personne qui prend un bain de pieds pas vraiment souhaité !

Hello Claude, Amazing view from this recent flood in France. strange that there were buses in such conditions. Perfect timing, with the lady with her feet in water. Attractive for us to see but I wouldn't like to be in her place (and shoes). I like this sign BUS.

Kind regards Malgo

Hi Claude
An unusual wet day and a low spirit! Thks to the info note and this image says it all in presenting us with reality. The silhouetted fig and drama of surging water are two strong winning points here with wonderful touch of red. A beautifully thoughtful and taken braving the elements, Congrats
Warm regards

Hello Claude

Very nice capture of the moment in this photo.
Although the photo has downsides due to the lack of focus, you still attain in capturing the drama that is unfolding at this bus stop.
A photo of the exact moment a wave hot the barrier would naturally be more dramatic, but you still capture the aftermath here.

Thanks for sharing.
