photoblog image The Wolf

The Wolf

I wanted an obscure title for this. Game time again. A gold star goes to the person who guesses the Movie and Actor that this image represents. The film has nothing to do with the beach


More Clues

The movie was not set in Britain
The name of one of the characters in the movie was the Wolf.
The movie was not about werewolves.

Competition lines are closed. Genevieve correctly guessed Harvey Kietel was the Wolf (the fixer) from Pulp Fiction.

Wouldn't be Tom Hanks and Castaway would it. Wilson would be more appropriate than Wolf though!
nev: Not the film i was thinking of but good guess. I am thinking something a bit more metaphorical and i don't think the movie even had a beach in it. thanks for playing and you can have another go if you like.

grin Robinson Crusoe who found Man Friday's footprints! written by Daniel Defoe, but I wouldn't have a clue about a film.

Neat picture though, love the action and the way the water is swirling over this footprint at the front.
nev: as Maxwell Smart would say. "Missed it by that much" ellie. i loved the movement in the water too. Thanks ellie please insert another coin to play again.
i think chariots of fire when i look at the shot hehe. but i am sure i am far from right. you said the beach has nothing to do with the movie but i cant get my mind around that. i really like this shot tho nev, its very powerful.
nev: i haven't thought about that movie for years. now i am going to be humming that all day and walking in slo mo. thanks genevieve. next clue - The movie is not set in britain.

"Lassie come Home" starring Lassie the pooch.

Can I have a star, please...I never win anything?

Probably this is a good image, with its meandering footprints and the eroding footprint in the foreground, but my mind is with the star.
nev: Since there were more than one lassie i think you are going to have to be a bit more specific Ray. Lassie come home is not quite right but you can get a black star for trying. Gold stars are the best. The Wolf was the name of the character in the movie. Thanks for playing Ray.
Ok, let me try. Is it that werewolf movie Jack Nicholson starred in some years back? Can't think of the title. Ok, that was lame, but I tried.
Good picture anyway!
nev: The movie was not about werewolves. i think i should have thought this over a bit more. i think if i had said pick a number between one and a million we would have had more luck. Nice try Kay and your entry still goes in the second round draw of a silver star.
harvey keital in pulp fiction?
nev: Congratulations genevieve you are the official winner of a gold star. Well done.
Oh Fantastic Nev... Very good idea and so nicely composed !
nev: Thaks Roland. i am glad you like it.

uhmmm since i won your previous contest and never got my price...sad
Maybe i can have also the silver star..grin or a plastic one???
Petra
nev: Petra i am sorry if you did not get them but i sent you an email on 30 January with the plugins. Let me know if you didn't get them and i will resend. I also sent them to Samira and Mia. I know samira go the email as samira wondered who Neal was. I did have to rename the files as GMAIL would not let me send program files. you can have a silver star though.
water, tracks, sea, foam, movement...really nice nev!
nev: Thanks for that Nicola

I love it when the competition is won before I arrive on the blog. I don't know a lot about movies as I sleep through most of them, and since this embarass the offspring I don't join them anymore. Take out a nice action movie from the hire and I have a chance to stay awake.

I rather watch pics on SC, like this one - excellent. I would have guessed Wolf Friday and Robby Crusoe if I was on your blog before Ellie.
nev: Next time i will keep the competition lines open a bit longer before i start judging them Louis. Have not seen wolf friday smile . Good luck with the narcolepsy.

I would not have got that, but I do get the lovely image, lovely shot. mal
nev: that was slightly obscure i know. cheers mal
Yea I agree with Louis the comp was closed to early, unlike like Louis I love films and I would have maybe got it right ! Don't you guys ever sleep ? Love this shot bruv, has an almost " From Here to Eternity " about it.
nev: Johnny next time the competition lines are open i will keep them open til all the stragglers come through the door. Our canadian friends did have a bit of an advantage here in time zones. hope you can maybe get the next one. cheers

Bugger the competition Neal, the image says it all; excellent photo mate, well done. Kind regards, Neil.
nev: I'm with you Neil. thanks for commenting even without a chance of getting a gold star.
Why is it Harvy Kietal in Pulp Fiction??
nev: It is a pretty loose/lame connection but i was thinking that in pulp fiction "the wolf" was brought in to clean up the mess that was made, a little like the sea/mother nature here removing the evidence of mans existence.
Great image by the way! Love the force of the water coming into the frame.
nev: A lucky shot i think Jose

Neil can you try and resent those plugins again?? I didn't get them...( and i know who Neil is...grin )
Thanks in advance!
Petra
nev: Petra i did send another copy last night. send me a mail if you didn't get them again. it could have been blocked.
Great composition Nev
Like the water in the footstep in front
nev: I didn't have much time to think about it Magnus. I quickly positioned myself in front of the closest one just as i saw a larger set of waves coming. thanks for your comment
Dont know the film, like this shot Neal.
nev: There are quite a few uncomfortable scenes in Pulp Fiction Chris. Quentin Tarantinos humour does appeal to me though. thanks
Love this shot. Great tones smile
nev: I am glad you like the tones Tomas. i blended a duotone with the colour version to bring out the detail a little.

Don't know anything about movies, but I like this shot!

Lovely shot, and the steps are sharp even if you shot at 1/5s. Very nice effect on the water.
nev: i was doing my best not to end up in the drink. thanks rob
Very well done and I'm not able to give a response :-(
Nice to see you again Nev !!
nev: thanks for going back through the archives Zeb. later this week i will have a lot more time on my hands to have a better look at the shots i have missed out on.

I love movies and did see Pulp Fiction a long time ago but never would have guessed it. Oh well.

But this capture is fantastic, Neal, as everyone has said. I guess it's something wonderful we all can relate to!
nev: yeah it was obscure Ginnie. It was a bit lucky too to have the oncoming wave in there. thanks
So good that I can come at any time and still enjoy this wonderful shot, even if I'm late for the competition.
I especially like how you used the line of footsteps as the guide for "verticalness", instead of the horizon.
nev: thanks for your thoughts on the footsteps Samira. i was trying to not get the horizon and was unsure about whether i should have straightened it or not.
Really is a very good shot. The tv is very good here!
nev: Using the neutral density filter really help slow it down José
