Silhouettes

By jeanie      
Had a great day yesterday in the company of Angie and Dougie and we spent the evening down at Fort Perch lighthouse. The Real Mr Scholey and Anthony joined us there making the evening quite wonderful..
No clouds but lots of lovely colour in the sky made up for it.

Superb Jeanie, from the tremendous rippled fg to the reflection and great colour. Grand image and grand work amongst your pals.

Beautiful colours and I love the textural contrast between the rippled sand and the smooth, glassy water. I'm not a big fan of the composition, though — everything seems rather too central. That works well in symmetrical scenes but I think there's enough asymmetry in the foreground that a non-central composition can still be balanced. I've posted a mod with a square-ish crop (7x6) that pushes the lighthouse away from the centre.

Thanks Penny, Andy, Dougie and David.
The mod is great, David.. we all agree here (Angie and Dougie still with me) that the off centre works. Must admit I was that happy with the colours achieved that I never thought of cropping the image.

I'll bet poor old Anthony is a bit cheesed off. He's been setting root to that spot for years, firing off thousands of shots, no doubt worn a few sensors out in the process, and then along pops Jeanie, fires off a single shot, no filters, no tripod, doesn't even get her boots wet, and BINGO! a POTW.
