Yeah i know what you mean Trev but i thought the usual crop might be a bit boring . I kinda like the big chunk of foreground sand.

Unlike Trev, I love the sense of emptiness and the scale provided by that foreground. Having been there, I can associate with the loneliness seen here.

Agree with saltireblue's comments and would be tempted to crop a little from the top to remove the house and increase the feeling of isolation.

I wouldn't crop the top, but perhaps clone out the house instead.

I do like this image, Rod. Good sense of emptiness and isolation, agree it would be amplified without the house, but is true to what it is.

I like it mate.... I think the expanse of sand & the conversion to mono give this a kind of surreal feel........... the people give it scale.

Each to their own I guess.

you are very aggressive. it upsets my quiet and delicate southern sensibility. you woad wearing, claymore wielding, tartan selling, english mangling, whiskey distilling, (not all bad) shortbread eating, pale skinned, underwear challenged heathen. the other half says you are right. it is ALWAYS about me. but she is Ginger and of irish/scots extraction, therefore untrustworthy and probably in collusion.
