Seaside Shuffle

Last of the seaside postcards today, from Maldon on the Essex Coast. Music and title courtesy of Terry Dactyl and the Dinosaurs.


(wanted the black background for v1 but it doesn't work so well for v2 and I can't seem to do different backgrounds on the same set, sorry)

Try putting a very thin white border around the B&W. Should help, it looks to be a good image. V3 is a beaut.

I know Maldon and V1 is a good representation of the town. Love the anchor and cat image is pleasing. Si.

A fine set of 'postcards', Dave - viewed whilst listening to that blast from the past - an excellent combination!
I was/am going to suggest a thin white border around V2 but see Alan's already made the same one!

An excellent trio, Dave and as much as I love cats, V1 is my favourite, an excellent composition with the yellow boat perfectly positioned.

A lovely sweeping coastline in this V1 composition with nice colours. Well done Dave.

Super timing for the light, wonderful colours and clarity, Dave. V2 is a cracker of a mono, and V3 wonderful compo. All the three images must share my humble UA. The mono is my fave among them.

V3 for me Dave and I would go a step further and add a 3px white border to the other two for separation, only my opinion.

Three great postcards, each completely different in style.
The f/g yellow boat just makes V1.
Mono is perfect for V2 but V3 wins for composition.

Three excellent images, Dave. Difficult to choose between them, but V1 takes the trick by a whisker, a lovely scene, bright and colourful, and super composition.

An interesting and so very well observed set of images linked together perfectly. For me the image which stands out amongst the threesome is that of image number two. Not only had it been very well observed and captured, but it has been very well composed, exposed and processed. The monochrome processing bringing out the finest detail hidden within the silty beds and rusting hulks, whilst at the same time the light plays a crucial and brilliant role in this great riverside production.

Regards Nathan.

P.S. It was great to meet up with you and your very good lady yesterday, and I hope that we can get together again.

I won't add to what the pontificators above have observed, only say that finding the right background for several images is very tough which is one of the reasons why I do my own faux mounts. I like all three images, V1 for its jolly summer postcard look, V2 for the moody monochromatic feel, and V3 (my favourite) for the laid back moggy.
6 Sep 2013 6:48PM
Hello friend, this is really an excellent seascape image, very well taken and wonderfully presented too.. The winner is the V1..

Wonderful diverse set of images, however the humour in the sleepy cat shot gets my preference.

Beautiful rich colours, perhaps make a suggestion to the moderators about different b/g's on the same set!
V1 is my choice but would be interested, is this straight from the camera or did you tweak the colour Dave? Or is your Canon to take the crest alongside the photographerWink of courseWink the Nikon does over expose I have to change the exp comp by 0.3 sometimes 0.7 but not often! The Panasonic I can't get the exp right and have to tweak on PS

A super seaside set.. All bringing something different.. Like the light,colour , comp in V1, the tones in V2 & although not a cat person, I really like V3!. The cat just adds to the whole image.purfect!

Three wonderful images on a theme, loved v1 for the composition and loads of interest and detail, however, v3 for me, brilliant, as always great work, Dave.
your mate,
Darryl. SmileSmileSmile
I have been sitting here looking a V1 for what feels like ages Dave, it is a familiar image to me and then it hit me.....John's daughter lives in Rayleigh, Essex and on a recent visit she took us to Maldon, a picturesque little spot on the coast and your image totally captures the beauty of it. Unfortunately neither John nor I had our cameras (totally unheard of)!!! I love the trio, but my firm favourite is V1 GrinGrinGrin

Was really great to meet you and Tess on Thursday, had a lovely day, hope to do it again sometime soon Grin
