Taken on Southport Pier in August ... the overcast day made the colourful deck chairs stand out and the brisk wind caught the fabric of the chairs making them an interesting focal point. Having taken the image the mono conversion looked slightly more interesting. ND Grad Cokin filter used to add impact in the sky aea.

Ahh, the British summertime. Loving this shot, the lonley deckchairs, angle of the boards, the clouds, tones and the only people present congregated in one spot. All these elements come together extremely well.

Congrats on the HC.
