Alan anither stoater. Seriously i don't know the teccie term but the different bands of texture/ light/shade make this image zing Wind farms are getting everywhere at the moment , i have mixed feelings about them actually. Wonderful fotae
Thanks mate. My own feelings aren't that mixed. Hence the title.
Yeah , they do give good photo opportunities at times though Have a guid day
I like them, but at a distance.
Great composition, Alan.
Yes, I think they can often look rather nice. I just think that for the most part they're a colossal bloody waste of money.
Rising up in layers, in the way that I normally associate with portrait compositions. Landscape 'should' read left to right not up and down, but it works here because of the high horizon.
Composition is one of my obsessions, thanks for waking my brain up today. I've just given my UA otherwise this would get it.
Thanks, Moira, that means a lot. As far as I'm concerned, if you ain't got composition, then you ain't got nowt. Can't possibly agree with any kind of a "should," though. Not in my vocabulary.
The inverted commas are important... You learn the rules in order to break them creatively and make something dynamic rather than static. I may have asked before, but have you come across Michael Freeman's writings? The Photographer's Eye is brilliant.
Yes, I did get the point of the ".."'s , I should have made that clear I think we're "on the same page," Moira, as our American cousins are wont to say.
Michael Freeman. Heard of him, yes. Come across his writings, no. Has he come across mine?
Strong banding of light and texture, Alan. Perfect for mono. Today's eye-sores are tomorrow's heritage... and they do make good subjects.

True enough mate.
You'd appreciate The Photographer's Eye, I think. A whole book about composition (more accurately, how the eye reads the image), and he doesn't mention the Rule of Thirds once. It's not light reading.
Thanks, Moira. Might just look it up. Need a break from The Beano.
I first viewed this on my iPhone and it looked goo if not a little small, on my laptop its brilliant.... all of the things the others have said but can't see any comments about that gorgeoous light on the wet sand... brilliant isn't too strong a word.
Must admit, Mark, once I'd given it a swift boot up the jaxi in PSE I was a bit more chuffed than I expected to be
You are too kind, and the tenner is in the post
I shortlisted this one yesterday as I didn't want you to think I was showing you any favouritism... so out coming back to it 24 hours later, its still as good so gets a GEA
