Hi All - - another archive squarescaoe© for you! Grin

Just discovered a friend of ours is off to visit this place tomorrow,(not jealous in the slightest, Ange!) Wink and since I can't really play hookey - this is the best I can do - - ah well, maybe next week Wink

Thanks for popping in - I really, really hope to have some new stuff for you soon, honest!!

Right, off to put the rice on, curry tonight, thanks to MrS Smile

Have a great evening

Brilliant image, love the effect the long exposure has had on the water.

Almost Perfect -- well, we are taught at Brentwood Photographic Club that the main subject should not be in the middle -- maybe if it was on one side slightly then it would be perfect ( but I will still VOTE for you )

A weird image in some respects, a result of a huge amount of amazing work. I love it in so many ways, but it has a surreal quality to it.
I would say perfect, because it is too, well, perfect frankly!

No pleasing some people!

You certainly have broke the rule of composition by placing the focal point in the middle and hirizon in the middle, but in this case composition works, so this image is more than perfect. Well done

Stunning image Fran - it's not often that you find New Brighton that calm & still - and you've taken full advantage of it!!

I love this shot. The mud adds depth to the shot and with the silky smooth quality of the overall image, just adds a tad of contrast. Amazing!! Smile
