Only in the middle!!

Seriously, there is a bit of barrelling at the sides due to the WA lens but I decided to leave it.

Congratulations on a really stunning shot Derek, and on the awards. I love the presentation. In fact I sometimes use this type of presentation for club comps (without my name on the fromt for obvious reasons) but it doesn't seem to be so popular for club work.

wow what a lovely picture, not too far from where i live!

Are you aware of any courses in the area for photography i'd love to be able to take a good shot lol!
Great pic, congrats!

Hi Sara,
I remember there was a guy who had a small hut on the prom close to the pier advertising day photography tuition on the beach. I cant remember his name but his images were very good. He had postcards in one of the pier shops and also exhibited in one of the towns galleries.
Hope thats of some help.
