The low lighthouse at Spurn - and on the horizon I asasume is Grimsby and Cleethorpes, but I could be wrong
Many thanks to everyone who left voted or left comments on my 60th Birthday flower, which is indeed a hyacinth as Ann guessed.
Thanks to everyone who visited my new website at www.HelenBurridge.co.uk - some lovely compliments to my son for putting it together as a birthday present - I am of course willing to rent him out !!!
v1 as it was
v2 with a lyer of rust from the Spurn tractor
v3 from a suggestion from Mic - many thanks

Many thanks to CarolG for being so honest about it - I have reversed the order as probably it will be less offputting !!!


Miserable day here - grey, dull, and a day for indoor work - still its half term and great to speep in and read till very very late !!

Strange looking lighthouse, Helen! I like the way you have lined up the three objects. I think I prefer v1 as you can concentrate on the image better. Lovely!

This is so much better, Helen, the eye can concentrate on the excellent composition, and not be led away to other distractions! Needless to say, my vote goes to V.1. Carol

I really enjoy the composition of V1 and the delicate hues in it. V2 comes as a surprise, but it really works for me. Puts me in mind of an image which has aged and perhaps become damaged by damp. Adds a extra layer of interest. So V2 for me.

I know you are not a ''rust fan'' Helen,so delighted to see it on your layers.I think it works very well on the smooth sand to give it a rougher texture.Perhaps not so well on the sea and sky.I reckon any light brown smooth surface would suit a rust layer very well,and any other colour left as it is.If it was possible here,to see the sand,lighthouse and the two posts only with the rust layer,and the blue sky and water left alone,would be a very effective working too.

Well Helen,if I say so myself,I love V3 !! I just think V2 is a bit ''overcooked''.
However,you have left my reputation on the site in tatters.
I would have bet all my worldly goods that a comment of mines would never be considered ''constructive'' !!

Personally I do not think the treatment in 2 and 3 improves the original composition which I think could work well in mono.

Although I like your variants very much I agree with Albert about the original composition ( not necessarily about the mono) which is excellent with a strong sense of tension derived from the balance of objects. Sometimes the power to 'arrest' the eye and it's attendant consciousness can come from simple but carefully balanced compositions. I like this one very much. A
