Spurn anchor

By helenlinda
Thanks for C&C for my two recent images using the weed I dug up in the garden - nothing is ever wasted !!
This was taken at Spurn last summer. It is the anchor on the boat hooked up to the tractor , and I managed to frame the lighthouse within the composition.

v1 I've added a textured layer of the rust on the tractor
v2 a more blurred edition of v1
v3 the finished image before the layers
v4 the rust!!!
Thanks for looking and I hope you all have a good week

Very well composed Helen, think V1 for me and of course the wonderfully abstract rust of V4! Super creativity.

Creative work Helen. No. 4 would stand on its own as a strong abstract.

V1 for me, an unusual but very effective viewpoint....I like the high-key treatment, with a touch of texture....well done.

V1 works perfectly for me. V3 is an interesting composition but a bit busy - somehow the lightening and texture in V1 give it a more spacious, airy feel. Well that's how it works for me.

Excellent work, V1 a draw to my eye

Delighted to see you have not neglected rust in your manips' Helen .The RAS handbook is getting thicker as time goes by.We now have a Manipulation section !! We will soon have more sections than there are political parties.On second thoughts,that could be a bad thing.You would all want to throw out the Scots guy !!

The original is a very unusual composition enhanced, as always, in the other versions to produce stunning images. Great work.

Its funny but I've had v3 prepared for a very long time, but felt somehow it wasn't worth an upload in its own right - seemed too complicated a composition, but some of you obviously like it. Many thanks for all your comments - really appreciated
