FormbyFootprints

By Jennie277
Taken last weekend on my compact at Formby Sands.
The large photo shows a trail of Mesolithic / Neolithic footprints that have recently been uncovered by costal erosion on the Sefton Coast.
The other two photos show close ups of the footprints, the top shows an animal print as well as the human.
The bottom right (my fovourite) shows another footprint, but you can clearly see the 'big toe' print and the shape of the foot, amazing considering they were made about 5000 years ago!

The background is a photo of the grasses on the dunes.

Your photographs sum up the meaning of creativity for me. Take any one of the pictures on it's own and it looks "ordinary". Combine them, using your expert eye, and you have created an amazingly beautiful work of photographic art.

Good work, Jennie. I think the background grass is a bit strong though. How about desaturating and blurring it a bit. Just an idea.

I love the grass in the frame. Brings it all together.
