Same section of St. Anne's beach as yesterday's upload.

I went back at sun set to see how different the shadow play would look compared to my last uploads early morning shot. I isolated this small section of the fencing and dunes as I liked the symmetry, and I thought a black & white conversion would suit this shot too.

Thanks for looking.

Any constructive critique is most welcome.

Thanks All Grin

Thanks Jeff. I'm glad I went back to that spot. There's an area of fences and dunes, with lots of opportunities for good shadow shots. When the sun is shining I think I'll go back again.

I'm glad you like the shot Jeff,

Thanks

I like the symmetry and the uneven shadows on the sand.

Intriguing - not-quite symmetry, which is far more involving. And really strong hard b&w, I like that.
As with your previous b&w I am seeing two possible squares here and I think they would make an interesting comparison, because they lead in opposite directions. Mods to follow - as an alternative way of seeing the scene.

Hi Moira,

Thanks for the mods. I like your alternative views, mod 1 being my favourite. Seeing your ideas has given me an idea for trying to produce a triptych of images of that area of the beach.

Thanks for your help.

Cheers Moira.

Excellent idea! There's scope for a natural triptych in this one if you divide the image carefully.
For a triptych to work you need three individual items that could all stand up as valid compositions in their own right - but that work better when combined into a 'bigger picture'. And there are certainly a number of individual abstracts lurking in this frame.
I shall resist having a further play with this one - why not see if you can produce a triptych from this?

Hi Elaine

Nice image of the fencing and the evening shadows and I like the fact you've chosen to use B+W to display the scene. I've loaded 2 MOD's

1. Has an adjustment to the sky only to give more definition to the sky. This was done by isolating the sky from the rest of the image and using levels just to deepen the mid tones and brighten the highlights.

2. This is a bit of fun concentrating on the shadow and fence detail to the right of centre and adjusted quite dramatically to create a more silhouette type image

Let me know what you think

Erik

Hi Moira,

Yes I'll play around with this one and see what I can do.

Hi Eric,

Thanks for the mods. Thanks for giving details of how you improved the sky. I tried to darken it with the burn tool but without much success. It looks great in your mod and I'll remember that tip in future.

I like mod 2 a lot. It looks great in silhouette and I like the shapes and lines.

Thanks for your help and great ideas Eric. I appreciate it a lot Grin
