.... sounds a bit more exotic than fisherman, although why he wants to be doing it at this point remains a mystery, any self-respecting fish would be heading for the deeps in that sea. You can see the effect of the wind on his rod, but Scarborough harbour really is so well sheltered from seas. The image was taken from in front of the lighthouse for those that know it.
Iso 100, f11, 1/200s, @165mm on the 70-200 lens without a tripod.

v2 are steps that lead down from the top outer harbour wall. I got quite a few funny looks clicking away at shadows. Iso 200, f11, 1/200s, @70mm. No tripod!!!

I like the compression shown in V1 - its shown in the rod tip by the angler and by use of telephoto compression of the image by the photographer! Nice detail and textures in V2 the shadows make it! Both Super images, well captured, I like them a lot!

V1 is rather dramatic for an angling photograph, even sea fishing tending to reflect tranquillity and contentment.
Excellent timing has ensured good composition - the dynamic shape against the backdrop of the raging sea.
I hope the onlookers when you took V2 still managed to keep out of your way Smile

I love the twitch in the end of the rod. Well it was probably more than a twitch... I have never, ever, seen anyone catch so much as a shrimp in such conditions.

A cracking composition, man against the elements battling for a nibble... "A bit like during the lunchtime mayhem at Marks & Spencers I suppose"

Image number two for me is the more appealing, a wonderfully observed image, which although bright has a somewhat eerie feel about it, as if they were the souls of Fisherman past...

I love both of these images. A stunning compo, action and depth of the first move me deeply as a lover of fishing, almost 3D effect achieved with the hazy backdrop contrasting the sharpness of the foreground image. V2 combines great broken shadows, light, textures, colour tones and some rust together. Fabulous works, Dave.

V1 has great movement with the swirling water and the fishing rod "waving" in the wind but all he would catch I think is a few aching " muscles" in his arms.

But he makes a great subject, Dave, and you have captured a fine image.

The land on the right really looks like the next bank of giant waves rolling in behind the real ones, Dave, and excellent effect of the lens used.
I must admit I prefer my fish more along the production line than this....as in on a plate, battered or breadcrumbed and a side order of home-made chips, tartar sauce, salt & vinegar and a squeeze of lemon....all washed down with a decent ale, of course.Wink

V2 might make an excellent b&w conversion, added contrast, perhaps film noir? Just a thought.
