Kilve Abstract 8

By alansdottir  
Another from Kilve... Smile

Two slightly different takes on this - one with the low sun casting shadows, which throws up the detail in the textures... V2 in overcast conditions, concentrating on the cobbles themselves.

Tech stuff: ISO 200; shutter 1/60 sec; aperture f/8; focal length 7.8 mm (but see lens); Benbo Trekker.

Thank you for taking the time to look, c&c appreciated, as always Smile

Superb images V1 works for me as the lighting is spot on bringing out all the texture.

Ooh, they both work. But I'm going for the softer light of V2.
But I just love the segmented base rock. The patterned pebble sits comfortably in its place, but the larger cobble adds tension somehow.

I dont normally go for abstract type things, I like both these shots, something quite echanting about their simplicity. nice

Two gorgeous images very difficult to choose between them, the colours and textures are quite simply beautiful. I think on balance it has to be V2 but only by a very short head.

Ah , very nice again.
I like V2 best as the litte rock is in plain view.
In V1 there is maybe a bit to much shadow on that little rock.
Great work.
Full on texture and detail.

A very interesting comparison - I prefer V2, it's straight, simple, factual, bold, and so for me it's stronger.
