Clifton Beach ~ South Arm Peninsula ~ Tasmania

I actually shot this with the intention of converting it to b&w, but I like the colour version so here tis first ... (edit: the b&w version's here.)

Please take a moment to view large - all advice, feedback and critique (+/-) welcomed.

Thank you for looking ...

Not the nicest structure, but makes an intersting photo anyway....think ther B&W may work well.

A good moody feel to this one, but not convinced it would work so well in BW. I think the yellow of the hut really adds a lot to this shot, and you'd lose that in BW.

Nice work! Agree with others saying it would probably work well in B&W but the yellows and greens make it a great colour shot.

The structure is well-composed against the sky and I love the way the yellow in the lifeguard hut holds the whole thing together - and certainly pulls in the eye. The b+w version doesn't quite work in the same way but this colour version is a lovely brooding image.
