Standing proud

By marktc  
A long exposure of one of the groynes on Avon Beach in Christchurch, Dorset. There was a heavy and low cloud base and it was very windy so was lucky to get a shot at all.

Feeling a little better this morning than yesterday, thank you all for your good wishes and to my lovely wife for uploading yesterdays image. Thank you also to all those that took the time to click and comment on it.

The composition is spot on, Mark, and a nifty bit of processing on v1, very effective.

Now the tone in V1 is just so pretty and makes a lovely change from the usual blues/greens. I like the soft peachy colours. Very restful.

Glad your feeling better.
I like the composition here and although I do like V2 with the natural blues and touches of green,
I love the toned Version 1 - I'll almost always prefer hot to cold.
