Market Street

By James_C
Hi everyone, Thanks for your continued support and kind comments. I took this picture yesterday at Cawsands in Cornwall. Kingsands and Cawsands are adjoining villages overlooking the entrance through Plymouth breakwater. It is a very sheltered cove from all but easterly gales, which periodically (every 20 years or so) ravage the villages. It is very peaceful and is serviced by a small ferry from Plymouth or by narrow lanes. Well worth a visit.

I hope you enjoy my offering. Comments and criticism always welcome.

Large is worth looking at, you can see all the different textures in the walls. Lovely composition leading us to the brown door, Like the colour tones in this

Nice image of a Cornish street James just slightly let down with the sloping edge on the left, i've uploaded a mod with the verticals straightened, also the image is only 600pixels wide, as an Epz member you can upload at 1000pixels which would make the large view better,
Hope this helps,

Many thanks for your kind comments.

I've uploaded the uncropped original of this picture and would be interested to see how you approach thye problem - none of the buildings are upright and many of the "verticals" aren't. If you look at the cream building on the left, there is a definite bend in the edge about a third of the way up. Equally if you look at the doorway just visible on the right - it is upright, whilst the window above is definitely not.

So - whilst I agree with your modification Graham, given the whole picture, I wonder if perhaps I should have cropped differently.

I rather like your version best. Old, and often crooked buildings are a challenge, and sometimes it's best to leave well enough alone. The image imparts a sense of the unusual nature of this village. Your colors are magnificent in this. Your lines are straight in the center of the image which is where the eye is automatically drawn, and the v shaped composition enhances that.
