Cromer shadows 2

By mrswoolybill
Another shot of the beach huts. If you look at the Map location, then click on satellite view and enlarge it, you can actually see these shadows from space.
Thanks for looking,

Fits the theme nicely. The horizontal pier placed in the middle balances the vertical line of huts so well. Excellent composition as always.

Thanks guys. I struggled a bit with straightening this one, because I don't think there's a single true vertical in the foreground. I decided in the end that if the pier was horizontal then the image should be somewhere near the truth!

A fine composition which fits today's theme perfectly and the two ladies and a dog add that extra touch.

Shame they need such large hasps and padlocks on these pretty huts. Is the map a lens baby special angle lens?

With a quick glance those shadows look like stairs and the people are walking up them. Only seen upon first opening mind you. Love those little colourful shacks.......Sandy

Actually it was a woman and man together, but I hate to spoil your fun!

Thanks for noticing that, Sandy. What I was particularly pleased with was that I got all the figures' shadows contained within the hut shadows, so they don't spoil the clean edges. Purely fortuitous, not deliberately timed.
Thanks everyone, we're back from Newcastle, I'll get some time here this afternoon.

I think these colourful beach huts always make for good images, and this one is no exception.

Looking at the map, the huts seem to stretch quite a distance Wink A fine colourful capture, Moira, and I think this is about as straight as you'll get them! Smile

Annette, do you mean the edge of the hut running down the left side of the frame? I composed/skewed carefully to include that!
Cheers everyone,

Moira -- I like this shot. The shadows form an interesting pattern but I think the colors are what excite me most about this one.
I tried your suggestion and looked at this area from the satellite view. It is wonderful. I encourage everybody to try that.
