The mono works beautifully in today's image - a completely different feel to yesterday's.
The light is lovely as is the subtle line of the receding waves.
Just perfect with the birds and that one lone figure.

I agree with Kate, the mono works really well, really brings out the tones and textures. Love the composition too.

There is something about your shots of this beach that fascinate me.
I cannot pin down exactly what, the vastness is one, the loneliness is another.
The industrial landscape overwhelming the creatures, I think that is...
Great shot, the darkness of one side and the heaviness of the other balance the image.

A moody Michael Kenna type capture! Excellent.

There's an appealing sadness to this image. The sepia tone, the relative emptiness and the photo taken from a safe distance of the lone figure adds to all of this. I feel that I am the observer not you. An engaging image which creates an emotional response.

Superb atmosphere, Alan, so reminiscent of Get Carter.

Superb mono panorama. Shyly, discreetly, the seabirds on the beach are lining up for the kill: target, the lonely human whose body language suggests a photographer caught chimping his/her* last shot. I love the play of light and shade and the details in the industrial background. For the rest I have to concede to Linda's fine words and slip you my U.A. to compensate.

Ah yes, I see what Bill was getting excited about just now.
There's so much implied body language in those few human pixels.

A more desolate feeling to this one - but I love all that industry steaming and smoking away in the background.

Another superb image Alan....the lone figure gives a real sense of perspective with the enormity of the industrial plant in the background. Love the processing too. Is that Redcar Steel Works by the way?

Better still than yesterday Alan, love the juxtaposition of human, wildlife, beach and industry, beautifully processed. Has to be a consecutive UA.

Morning Alan, I'm not sure why I missed this one, it's an amazing image with that single figure showing the vastness of the scene... Superb

And then there was one, a lone figure on the cold windy beach.
You're on the edge of your quality here Alan, but it's a nice gritty image.
