The Victorian Rainbow

By Fefe
Today's upload is from 2019 and the summer, when we were allowed out places.
A set of three images of the Victorian beach huts, Ventnor, Isle of Wight.
These are original beach huts that used to be wheeled to the waters edge to protect the modesty of bather's walking to the sea.
I did intend to focus on the door handle closest to me to get the out of focus look to the rest of the image.
I couldn't decide which I liked best, so no particular order.

Thank you all so much for yesterdays C&C, UA's and a special thank you to pablophotographer for the Guest Editor Award.
So pleased you enjoyed 'Roger' 😃

A great set
A lovely set of images.
I love the pastel colours.

To me, V2 seems to be the framing/photo I would try for, Diane. It makes the door handle more prominent, leaving at the same time the remainder of the photo in soft-focus but still interesting.

Good to see, Diane, warmth and soft colours. For me the lead works best, but all 3 are very good. Would like to see v.2 with focus on the deckchair or the lass. Itís a nice curve the huts make, indeed.

V2 is, in my ever so humble opinion, the best and deserves its own 15 minutes in the limelight...but what do I know?Wink

The lead for me.

I like all of these Diane, no particular fave.
Lovely pastel colours and I wonder where all the wheels went.
19 Jan 2021 5:45PM
I first a these in 1962, as a wee lad, almost sure they had the wheels on then.

Lovely set Diane, great angle and colours, V1 for me.

The seaside wouldn't be the same without them, and Ventnor does it rather well. I'd go with version two as well.

Beach huts do make a great subject (my favourites are the ones at Whitby), and a fine trio here, Diane 👍 I go for V2, then lead, then V1 😃

A very interesting, colorful presentation Diane !!
V1 is my favorite.

21 Jan 2021 3:58AM
V2 for me for that brilliant focusing ! We have no such huts here in Canada ...understand the bigger one over there can fetch a ridiclous ownership price on some of the more popular beaches ?
