you don't see many deckchairs here in Blackpool anymore,sign of the times i guessSad I prefer the old fashioned seaside resorts. I guess its a sign i am getting older.
I like the way the deckchair fabric is blowing in the wind,typical of a british seaside resortSmile

Good capture and with the deckchair being blown by the wind you may well have captured this years typical English seaside scene, the only thing missing is the rain Wink

Take care

This image says a lot. It reminds me of my childhood in Bridlington. Is it Brid?
Could you clone out the bit of orange just beyond the chair, its a little distracting. The colour balance may be just a little cool, as you shot in RAW this could be easily warmed a touch. (or correct the whites on the post, they are just a little blue on my screen)
Good capture, Ian

I like the composition and it does epitomise our seaside summers. I agree with Ian about the whites and the cloning of the reddish bit against the railings I would personally also get rid of the yellow marker on the beach.

Normally I would recommend smaller aperture for this kind of thing but I feel sure that you wanted to concentrate on the deckchair, so it is a nice bit of differential focussing. Alsoa good shutter speed to freeze the deckchair canvas.

A very good composition, which captures the true essence of the seaside, a great point of view which has allowed you to capture the crisp white line of the iron work so very well thus in turn creating a great perspective.

Thanks guys

Yes it is Bridlington
I appreciate all your comments and advice, I really like the B&W mod and it does look loads better without the red bit and yellow marker

I knew it was Bridlington straight away from those fresh painted railings! Lovely seaside shot........... Done you a mod, I adjusted the colour abit by adding a bit of red and a bit of blue. I gave it more contrast as I feel the strong sunshine would create more shadow. I aged the image just a bit to give the colour an old fashioned feel. Hope you like it. Nice imageGrin
