Fishing paraphernalia found at Selsey Bill. Nets, floats, creels, lobster pots and rope. The crustacea traps in Vs 2 and 3 are inkwell-shaped and creel-shaped respectively. I'm learning a bit more terminology.
(AP, ISO200, -0.3stepEv).

V1: Nets, ropes and floats (1/420sec@f4.5,7mmFL).
V2: Inkwell-shaped pot and rope (1/212sec@f5,9mmFL).
V3: Creel-shaped pots and rope (1/60sec@f8,19mmFL).

Some lovely detail in these images Pamela. Yes you are certainly spouting forth with the jargon very naturally these days!!!
I'm going with v1 as the favourite here. I feel the composition works particularly well with the strong blue curve at the left side bringing the eye right back into the picture. Thanks for your recent comments. Much appreciated Pamela

Three well composed images containing great detail texture and tone. I did wonder if No. 1 would benefit from warming up and a bit more colour saturation so have produced a mod ~ what do you think?

I particularly like V3 with the colours and the mesh work in the creels.
I also like the jumble of V1 - good sharp image - but it does need a little more warmth as has been suggested.
