Today I've gone back to The Stade, Hastings, early morning at the beginning of July.
Thanks for looking and for any comments and/or criticisms - or suggestions! I think the sky might be a bit noisy having been put through Topaz...?

The lowish POV sets the boat nicely against the sea and sky, Ann.
Fine detail and composition.

A rather stunning photograph depicting this rather gorgeous coastal scene, brilliant point of view, providing a great perspective, stunning natural colour and exquisite detail running throughout.

Lovely one! The winch on the angle of the starboard bow looks to be trying to pull the boat over - unless it's the boat pulling the winch!

Nice opposing diagonals and a fabulous summer sky, the boat is in just the right spot and fills the eye with thoughts of sandy beaches and fishing boats, and maybe fish & chips?

Strong composition with colour that 'pops' without looking oversaturated. Love the way the clouds seem to halo around the boat. A simple but very well executes image Ann.

Perfectly positioned in the frame, Ann. The pov does make it look as if the boat is fighting to stay upright, only the counter-weight of the winch holding it upright!

Yep...I see what you mean with the sky being noisy. I see it when viewed Large. I encounter the same thing when I use Whyeth with Lucis. The detaily bits are fine but the solid expanses show up noise Sad

That said, this is a VERY handsome shot, Ann. Colour-, composition-, light- and contrast-wise.
