Grid & Beacon ...

By sut68      
Possibly the last one from Saturday [for now at least], so I decided to make it a portrait orientation. Converted to mono in PS and toning applied.

No variants this time to choose from ... just this 'un Wink

Enjoy your day folks, cheers for dropping in Smile

Ah..V5!!
Thought it looked promising. And I was right.
Best of the bunch, imo, Paul. The scene really suits portrait format.
Very nicely done!

Prefer this to the others Paul , composition works really well and in this image, the lighthouse stands out a wee bit better, as it was getting lost in the white cloud background .
Ship is a bonus Smile ,nice one

Cheers all for your valued time ... just in mourning at the minute though for a not-so-swift departure from the F.A. Cup this evening ... so sad Sad

You're toned monos have a wonderful feel to them. Superbly done again and the central position of the lighthouse works well with the portrait format.

You could probably chop a fair bit off the top of this and not notice it has gone since there's not much worth or detail in the big black blob in the top right hand corner.

That would also bias the horizon line further away from the middle.

Like it otherwise

You're right Simon, but as this was the shot in-camera I'll leave it for now. Cheers though.

Oh that water movement's just a little special, Paul, and it seems to be enhanced by the terrific toning.
