Another from Hastings taken ten days ago. Converted to b&w in Lightroom.
Thank you for your comments and the debate on The Open Door - and extra special thanks to Chris, Ken, Albert, Martin and Dougie for their UAs! I'm running out of images of Cuba, so won't be able to keep up this wonderful level of interest for much longer!
Have a good day - sun's out and I'm off for a nine mile walk with an old friend so I'll catch up later.

It's a hooray from me. The low angle make this a beast of a boat looming down on us. The mono adds to the mood of the shot. A cracking inspiring shot, makes me want to go out and try it now!

Fine capture using floor level POV, Ann: good symmetry achieved and the B and W presentation works nicely.

9 mile walk! I'm about to get off my chair with a grunt for that arduous 9 second walk to my fridge to get another cold one. We lead such different lives, Ann Grin

LOVE this shot. So very dramatic with that POV and the tones are so rich! Great light Smile

Well I'm going against the field on this Ann this looks very drab to me. I like the pov and you have good detail - but you need to go into curves and adjust the RH slider point back until it meets the graph - this will look a completely different image then..
Hope you don't mind my suggestion.Smile
