My thanks to all who voted/commented on 'Crimdon wave.'
This is another from that location, taken from the cliff top, looking South. The ships are freighters going out from Teesside.

Ignore the time shown in the exif... that's crazy Grin

Very atmospheric, so what time did you take this image; I like the hint of beach in the bottom right corner, obviously very busy shipping lanes in your neck of the woods or should I say North Sea; the reflection of the sun on the water is a nice touch.

i could know as soon as i saw it.. never seen a pier so small in an image.
it is amazing and has a capacity to transport.. and as though an encyclopaedia of the sea..

People always think that's a pier. It isn't. It's an old outlet pipe for water (or possibly waste)from old coal mine workings, I think.

A beautiful mercury like monochrome which for me works well, however the ship to the viewer left hand side seems to be out of place instantly drawing ones eye away from the rest of the scene. Others may disagree saying that this ensures a more balanced composition, however as always an image is open to interpretation.

The magic triangle is on the right of the image, the pier and the two boats, and IMHO a crop removeing the boat and the birds on the left makes it a stronger image Alan, I still really like the image as Nathan comment 'a beautiful mecury like monochrome'Smile

The group of birds is related to the cloud, and forms a link with the outlet pipe ( not a pier! ) creating a diagonal movement through the image. This helps to keeps things in harmonious balance, although the construction of the image is actually based largely on triangles. The ship on the extreme left closes the image on that side and forms a wider triangular link with the cloud and the pipe, increasing the visual stability further. Cliff has mentioned the triangle formed by the pipe and the two ships. There are several others.

Another simple and effective image Alan. It brings back some memories of living near there and how nice it can be around the north east coast.
For the images simplicity and giving me a pleasant flash back to a few years ago you have my award ........ oh yes nearly forgot and for a brilliant piece of photography.

The boat on the left, the waves on the right, the birds in the middle. All moving. For such a still, calm image there's a lot of movement going on here.
A lot of people here have their own special, personal place, that they know intimately. It shows in images. This is yours.

Although this is indeed a seascape for me, it's also a beautiful industrial vista with the tankers and the outlet pipe...when nature and industry collide. Superb Alan.

Dave has said what I was thinking - a beautifully processed image with something unreachable about it
with the boats on the horizon and that one almost out of the image on the left.
The unreachable factor draws me back to look again.
Love the clouds and the sea.

A broad seascape, as it should be. Despite the letterbox crop the sky feels enormous.
Ignoring the compositional side, I find this so full of atmosphere especially with the light on the water. I can't help imagining battlecruisers five miles offshore about to bombard Hartlepool.

Initially what strikes me is a stillness but the more I look at it the more I imagine those ships slowly moving and falling off the edge of the frame a bit like those machines at amusement arcades that push copper coins over a ledge.
That ship right on the edge of the frame is daring and that appeals too.
