The square format works very well here, Kath giving a lovely composition.

(Giving us a nice summer holiday would be better...)

The people are perfectly sized and proportioned. I've said it before and I'll say it again..'I want to be there!!!'

Clever Kath! That's a terrific shot. Square and mono? Anybody would think you had got out an old TLR.

Lovely tones in this one Kath, and I do like how the eye is taken through the grasses towards the couple on the beach. It makes me want to walk through the gap and into the frame!!!

‘Small or far away’ figures? Very Father Ted and Dougal, Kath 🙂 This incites that feeling of warm sand between the toes. Are you bold enough to put a colour version up I wonder? Lovely to see this, is it in Wales?

More a case of wind-blown dunes with sand in your sandwiches and tea than spraying factor 20 on sun-kissed bare limbs...

Your comment about not yet holiday time reminded me of Betty Boothroyd when she was Speaker in the Commons and had to remind unruly MPs, a week before the summer recess, that it was not yet bucket and spade time.Wink

Good composition with the sand path and the curve of the grass covered dune leading from opposite corners to the people on the beach. I think a little more contrast would lift the image and given more life.

Thank you all for your really encouraging comments and to Leo, Wallace, Sylvia, Dave, Tim and Angela for your much appreciated awards.

Definitely Wales Dave - usually is Anglesey! If I find the colour I'll put it on.

TLR Tim! Yes If I possessed one I would be digging out! I wanted to keep the foreground interest so cropped into square and found I liked it better. About as good as my processing skills go Tim!

Betty Boothroyd - she kept order so well - I shall take that as a compliment Malc!

I may tease you all with colour tomorrow!

Thanks Mike and James. I can see what you mean James and I have added some contrast, viewed large there is quite a lot of foreground detail. I wanted to keep it lighter and softer, quite different to my usual style!

Fabulous Kath. Love the way you’ve framed the couple on the beach. How I would love to walk through there! 😉

Wonderful composition Kath and a nice lead in with the pathway through the vegetation to the sea. Works well in mono.
