Photographer's Note

I took this from the promenade above Brighton Beach, shortly after the shot I posted yesterday. As I was photographing the piers, I noticed this man walking his dog, and thought they would make for a good shot silhouetted against the crashing waves. Here you can see the dog retreating at a rapid pace before an incoming wave engulfs him.
I used an ND grad filter, positioned horizontally to reduce the brightness of the sea on the right. Without it, this part of the image would have been horribly burnt out. Even with the filter this area is over-exposed, but I think it works well in this case; I rather like the bright highlights on the water.
