Stretching East

By MattB1987    
Back again! Today's offering is from last Friday, whilst on holiday we visited Walberswick to do some crabbing and as we finished it was perfect time to visit Southwold for our tea and a spot of photography.

I had a sort out of my photos in Lightroom and had a play with this one. I liked the composition of this one and thought mono would be fitting to highlight the bold lines. Other than the mono conversion I didn't really do a great deal else to the photo which I was pleased with.

Well I shall leave this in your capable hands and I hope you enjoy! Thank you for looking and as always all comments and critiques are much appreciated.

Just before I go I would like to dedicate this photo to my friend Sam Barnes who died in a car accident a year ago today, who had lit the fuse of my interest in photography, and is sorely missed.

Lovely shot of one of my favourite subjects. Love the treatment and the 'just enough movement' in the clouds.

A very good image Matt with something different to the usual Southwold compositions. Agreed with Ann, a fitting tribute.

Excellent shot Matt. The POV gives this lots of impact as does the conversion to mono. Nice to see a different 'angle' on a well known location. Love it.
