Half Time

By NDODS    
I know it is Shadowily Saturday but whilst in the flow of things I thought that I would keep up with my chosen theme of Dungeness. Your comments have been wonderfully honest and straight to the point as always, and these have helped me understand a little more about composition, punch and whites all of which I need to consider if I am every going to be up their as a photographer of some worth.

My meetings with my Consultant and Psychiatrist went remarkably well however Psychiatrists have a remarkable knack of making one feeling like a fool.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead, for me it will be spent taking a walk 'without camera and Kizmet' along the Saxon Shore.

Regards as always Nathan

I like boats! and even parts of boats so yes I like this shot Nathan, great colour blue then the sea, and sky, little bonus of the birds, I did wonder if you had added them? not that it matters because if you did then good thinking, as mentioned the bit of green plus the gravel all add up to a good photo, well done, Regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

A good exercise in perspective with those gulls so small by comparison with the boat.
I can imagine your session with a Psychiatrist! I feel that way about magicians.
5 Jan 2013 12:25PM

The gulls, the bit of green; plus what looks suspiciously leke a small foot emerging from the pebbles...
Everyone has their own personal Dungeness.
