Wow! What a shot. Please share where this is.
The net appears to be another man looking back at the thrower. Very interesting. Love the color.
The silhouette against the background makes the picture. Good job.
Nico De Pasquale
love timing n tones
The anthromorphic shape of the net makes the shot very very special indeed.
At first glance I thought the net was a lady or a child, Very clever silhouette.
I’m naming it ‘Dancing with my angel’
It is a stunning photo.
Well done you x
This is a lovely picture; that net really does look like another person; this is a classic.
Than you, Jeannie. I am saving it that way!
great image very nice color and the action in it is a real wow

Reminds me of the song, ‘my elusive dreams’ sung by Charlie Rich & others in the 70s.
.. great background for a hand puppet show as well.
Pretty impressive shot!
What an extraordinary capture! The contrast of light and darkness is stunning. I absolutely love the dance of man and net.
Yes, indeed. I agree with myself.
This makes me think a lot about photography. Great shot! -novice photographer.
Very happy about this win
And also happy for you,
Thank you much for your comments.
This is absolutely incredible. I love the contrast and the unique shape of the net once thrown…this is what great photography is all about. Well done!
breathtaking and eye catching… at the same time

I, too, would have titled it to reflect the ghostly image made by the net. Very nice picture indeed.

This pictures denotes the position and the destination of my life.

Solange Rebecca Echeverria
Left me absolutely speechless-Incredible-what an eye you have !
Khaled, from looking through your flickr albums, you are obviously a gifted photographer who has a deep knowledge and love of his landscape. Thanks for sharing your insights into the desert and and the Arabian Coast. And thank you for today’s wonderful capture. I keep returning to study the fisherman’s pose; the detail of the curve of his fingers which tell us he has just thrown the net, the clean lines you have drawn speak of a dancer’s elegance in the everyday task, the picture seems to be a meditation or a prayer. Mabrouk, wa allah ma3ak.
Absolutely breathtaking, Khaled. You have caught a fleeting moment in Time,in which each of us will
applaud you in our own individual way.
The colours are another fantastic palette of this
wonderful fragile planet we all share. Keep up the good work. Congratulations on this Photo of The Day.
Nice scene. The colors are amazing.
Thank you for your comments wonderful.
the shape reminds me of the character in the childrens’s book “Curious George”
Hi ; Khalid
Your hard work has paid off, congratulate
Some comments ask about the location of the photo, you have more forward; we want to see more about Ummlajj. Details of the photo were significant; the curve of his fingers, the net form, the picture seems to be a story of city people.
We want to see more and I am sure you have.
This is an amazing capture Khaled… a man casting away his being…
Fabulous Khaled. I can’t add anything that’s not been said already. Congrats.
At first glance of the thumbnail I thought it was a woman in a sheer dress leaping into his arms. Very pretty.
