Photo Shopping

By Fefe
...not that kind of photo shopping, in fact this is only tweaked in Lightroom Classic.
But during a visit to West Bay, Bridport in Dorset I saw a photo in a shop window which gave me the inspiration to take a long exposure of this view.
Later in the afternoon another stall selling local images, the photographer asked me (while nodding at my camera in hand) where was my tripod? To which I replied, I rarely use one, besides there are loads of ready made tripods along the harbour wall ready to use, very handy flat blocks of wood holding up the harbour....a bit of a long winded write up to explain my title but there you are 🙄😄
Been away to Dorset and Devon for a week, explains my absence...I hope you like this one. Please view large.

Massive thank you to everyone for recent C&C and lovely UA's, sorry for any slow PM's, I hope I have covered you all 🤞🏼

I love the sense of open space, distance.
Tripods are very useful for holding back nettles... Wink

Cleverly shot, using the wave as a leading line. I think it needs a couple of degrees to the left to level land on the left to the sea on the right. There is a nice symphony of colours grey, brown, blue and green and a strong contrast with the white of the crushing wave and the darker colour of the rocks.

A very lovely capture, Diane, looks a bit of a steep climb up to the top of that cliff!! Love to be wandering along that beautiful beach... 😃👍🏻
I rarely use my tripod either, and never take it on holiday. There are, as you say, plenty of ready-made 'tripods' when you're out & about to rest your camera on or up against 😃

This works really well, Diane. Years ago was my old stomping ground, my family lived near Bridport. Was this taken from the end of East Pier? It’s a fine wide pano! Used to go fishing off the pier many years ago 🙂

All of the above, Diane. I do like the title, too; did wonder if you were planning a little Light Room improvement, hanging the new picture.

Lots of sand there to find its way into your shoes, Diane. Tripod? What's one of those, then?
Love it Dianne. Great image Grin
