Beach Huts in monochrome "Simple"

By NDODS    
Good day to you all at ePz.

Thank you so very much for all your wonderful comment and votes following yesterday upload. A further mention goes to the following for their User Awards: pentaxpatty (Patricia), Sparrowhawk (Steve), RobertTurley (Robert), Jody17 (Jody), and DicksPics (Richard)

Yesterday was quite exhausting but worthwhile raising awareness of Remembrance Day to children in the local schools. However it has left me somewhat knackered.

I hope that you all have a great day whatever you get up to...

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

The receding and repeating patterns here lend themselves well to the B and W presentation, Nathan.
I fancy being there in summer but not 'the noo'.
Nicely captured.
Seems that you have had, like myself, another sleepless nightSadSad.

Beach-huts in mono makes a refreshing change from the usual multi-coloured images, Nathan. Smile

Lavina is right - unusual, Nathan.
We normally associate Beach Huts with assorted colours.
However, I think famous folk started out with plate cameras taking pictures of Beach Huts in mono.
Fox Talbot?
Good geometric picture.

Something that I wouldn't have thought would work in b/w Nathan - but it has - and worked well too. I think it must be the strong definitive shapes that allow this. Well done! Smile
Hope you catch up on some sleep. Smile

This works sooo well in mono. Beautiful tones and detail you've got here, Nathan Smile

Great image which works so well in mono enhancing the detail of both the hits and the sky.

Good, it's about the repetition of shapes rather than colours, and b&w gives a wintry feel.
This seems to be leaning slightly to the right to my eye, I want to skew the bottom right corner out a wee bit. That would give the perspective of the lower viewpoint, but with a greater sense of stability!
9 Nov 2013 8:32AM
superb shot my friend
Great symmetry, & the mono really renders the wooden slats .... A refreshing change to the colour versions we usually see.

A beautifully composed and crafted mono. I like the slight increase of contrast and the horizon tilted a bit upward in V1. Excellent. A
V2 is my fav, cracking capture love the lines the exposer the sheer simpleness that's been expertly spotted and composed. Nathan well done, top marks from me.

Clever of you to try this in mono. It works really well. I prefer the darker contrast in V1 but the straighter verticals of V2.

Wonderful composition and perspectives, Nathan!

Seems a shame to deprive them of their colour Nathan but suitable for this drear weather. Perhaps colour is better for when the sun shines!
