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.

29th March 2010 at 2:44 am

The silhouette against the background makes the picture. Good job.

amazing moment
love timing n tones


29th March 2010 at 8:10 am

The anthromorphic shape of the net makes the shot very very special indeed.


29th March 2010 at 8:17 am

At first glance I thought the net was a lady or a child, Very clever silhouette.

This is a lovely picture; that net really does look like another person; this is a classic.

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!


29th March 2010 at 2:38 pm

What an extraordinary capture! The contrast of light and darkness is stunning. I absolutely love the dance of man and net.

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

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.

Great shots,

30th March 2010 at 11:55 am

Thank you for your comments wonderful.

30th March 2010 at 2:10 pm

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.
Congratulate again

At first glance of the thumbnail I thought it was a woman in a sheer dress leaping into his arms. Very pretty.
