Love it - great composition with the line of the handrail leading down to her crouched figure, the weathered structure, the shivering mermaid with her tail wrapped tightly about herself like a cat. She simply wants to be put back in the water, I suspect.

Great image, Matt.

What a fantastic moment of creativity, Matt! I'm so envious of your eye recognizing the potential of this unique shot. Super composition and perfect in b&w.

It's funny how her body language translates so well in this instance. I echo other's praise for seeing the irony in the moment. Well done.

Sitting on the little ridge like that I it feels like she is looking at the dirt waiting for the water to return. Neat! S-
