[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Seafoam is a protein mix formed by tiny sea creatures mixed up with a bunch of other crud floating around. Foam fire extinguishers use the same general ingredients to make bubbles that will smother a fire.

Hi Haraprasan.
Great creative idea to reflect sea foam. I like realization of the plan a lot. Simply amazing nature pattern, perfect use of POV and brilliant composition of the image. Colour palette of the shit, its details and sharpness are ultimate. Bravo, well done, my friend.

Hello Hara,
Original image with a beautifully composed pattern of sea-foam gradually changing to a blue sky reflection at the top. Backed by a short but informative note. I wonder if the black leaf-shaped object is just a leaf?
Thanks for sharing this fine contribution,

Did I inspire you HP???? I love the water as much as I love my tree filled landscapes...I am a "Cancer" and although I do not subscribe to Astrology, I do see the associations sometimes in a coincidental way..Caner being a water-sign..
This is a Markus (Heaven) type of image as well..You have done super inc combining all these different techniques into your own special brand. I love TN..I don't think there is any other place that could help other photographers in such a synergistic way..Super image!

Hello Haraprasan,

Hi Haraprasan,

A very artistic shot of this sea foam. Perfect focus - every bubble is visible. Beautiful colors, fine details, and lovely composition.


This is an unexpected photo from you. Haraprasan. I really like it a lot! It is a wondeful natural abstract, technically perfect and artistically cropped and presented. The one dark focal point and all the foam bits receding into the distance are superb. Good eye, and great work.

Hello Haraprasan,
Very original composition and very nice image too. Fine DOF, sharpness, colours and shapes and a very well written and documented note as well.
Regards siggi

Hi Haraprasan,
This is a stunning shot and shows you eye from creative compositions perfectly. The leaf in the FG with the diagonal and horizontal line in the FG balances the rest of the dots of foam perfectly. The fine details and light made the photo perfect.

In one sentence: very beautiful artistic composition!!! :>
It is simple composition, and everyone can take such picture, but - and here BRAVO for you - not everyone will think about such picture! As I said: simple composition but beautiful photo!
TFS and all the best!

Hi Haraprasan,
I missed many of your pictures while in Cyprus,
Very interesting shot,
The white foam on top of the brown sand is very unusual,
The structure of the foams are very detailed,
Kind regards,

Hi Haraprasan!

Thank you for this marvellous posting: the picture is outstanding because of the very pronounced artistic and abstract effect and the notes explain with some simple words what I wondered since a long time. Excllent, a sight for sore eyes!

Kind regards


Hello Haraprasan. These foam along with low tide texture of the sand is really stunning. Very good artistic pattern and well taken shot. Regards. Jusni

Hello Haraprasan,
This is a very artistical shot, well composed in a vertical way and with very fine and subtle natural colours. You constructed a perfect art work.
You had to have the eye to imagine which part to frame to make your picture. Excellent!
Best regards

Ciao Haraprasan, fantastic abstract composition by nature, beautiful and original, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hy Haraprasan
Simple picture and very interesting note about seafoam! TFS

Hi Haraprasan

A short, but very interesting and useful note. Probably one can reason that this is an average view of an everyday scene, but you really presented this in a very beautiful and original presentation. With the focal length at 18mm and the camera turned to capture a vertical image you turned this into a full micro seascape. Very well seen and envisioned.

The f/7.1 aperture provided a lovely wide range of DOF and captured excellent details throughout that entire range. The colour rendition is fabulous and I like how the area at the top part of the image turned blue to reflect the sky above.

Well done and TFS.

Dear Haraprasan,
I was going through your pages when I found this photo very appealing. I like the superb composition, vertical framing & clearity at Puri beach. What are the long rope like lines? Well done & TFS.
