Award Shortlist   


By marktc  
A really early start (up at 3.40 am) this morning after a really late night (bed at 1150 pm) as we had friends round for dinner.

Anyway after an hours drive to Bournemouth and getting there just in time before the sun made it over the hills I managed to get this shot. On my laptop it looks pretty cool, in fact I would go as far to say one of my favourite images. The only processing this has had is a very slight straighten... I was even lucky enough to have the moon in the shot... not that it looks much like the moon!

Thanks to all those that clicked and commented on yesterdays upload, as usual your votes and comments are much appreciated.

Have a great Sunday, given half the chance I'm off to bed for an hour!

Yes strikes you right away as a totally different composition from any of yours before
and I love it. I like the dividing line between the beach and the sea leading us to the pier
with the piece of land going in the opposite direction.
Not sure what compositional golden rule this fits into, but I'm sure somebody will know.

Thanks Kate, I'm pretty sure that rules don't always matter... the appeal for me is the way the light edge of the waves sweep you into the image and then converge with the land, leading ultimately to the vanishing point and collecting the groyne along the way. Simples eh!WinkBlush
