Kilve Abstract 6

By alansdottir  
And another from Kilve! Two variations this time - very slightly different takes, the light changed between the two and, curiously, landscape format worked better for one shot and portrait for the other - at least, that's what I felt.

Tech stuff: ISO 200; shutter 1/70 sec; aperture f/8; focal length 11 mm (but see lens); tripod

Thanks for looking! Comments appreciated as always, Thank you Smile

That one must be one of the greatest.
I like those great textures, details play, combined by soft shadows.
That one single interesting rock is so nicely the focus point.
What a fantastic picture.
Viewing is large tho... Wow.
That would be great image on canvas!

I like the more subtle light in V1, but then the stronger light in V2 creates that striking diagonal. Both look fantastic large, even individual grains of sand stand out.
Geomorphology, in action.

Absolutely first rate. Can't fault it!

(Since you asked, I prefer v1.)

V1, for the creative use of portrait format. The placement of the pebble and the height of the frame give much more importance to the shadow.

This is remarkable, well seen and beautifully captured. The sense of scale between the two elements is perhaps more apparent in V1, which I prefer, than in V2; as to the actual size - I think I would really rather not know!

First thought was v2, then I looked at them large and can't decide - both good!
Beautiful abstracts: it's all been said about the composition, far better than I could say.
Could add that it gives me a feeling of an eye in something prehistoric. But that's just getting fanciful...

PS yes, Quantoxhead is good - haven't been for ages!

These two are excellent.They look so much like faces.The small stone the eye.The nose to the bottom left on both.

Very nice. It is interesting to see the different takes on the same location that you and Andy have.

Lovely light and tones in these. My favourite is V1.

Nicely composed - the light on the small pebble works well.

Two superb images, very difficult to choose between them, though on balance I think I would go for V2, I prefer the stronger more directional shadow, somehow showing more of the eons of work by mother nature involved in producing this small rock almost enveloped bye the surrounding blanket of stone awaiting to be broken and shaped into similar rocks.
Very well spotted and captured, another CG classic Smile

Ooohh now these are fabulous and I'm really a little envious of you and your Kilve. This image makes me wonder just how long that stone has been rolling around in that hollow, slowly wearing a deeper, safer, more secure nest for itself.

v1 for me. The stone sits well here, and I like how you have composed the shot

Like the shadow across V2, great detail again. You squeeze the last drop out of quality out of the Fuji Carol.
