Portland Stones 2

By JohnHorne  
Very similar to yesterday's upload, but this time with a rusty pebble placed in the centre. Is this an improvement, or does it look too twee ?

Pebbles at Church Ope Cove, Portland, taken on Saturday's Northscape South / ePz meet.

0.4 sec, f/16, ISO 100.

C&C welcome.

I think this looks really good. Very Ikea if that's not too much of an insult!

Robin - On the beach there was a rusty piece of machinery which caught my attention. I couldn't see how to make anything of the metal photographically, but it had coloured the stones around it. All I did was select some of the stones.

Simon - Ikea ? You mean it looks commercial ? Let's hope so !

Thanks for taking the trouble to comment.

Like them both... prefer the arrangement in the middle on this one, but prefer the range of grey tones on yesterday's (this one has that patch of dark grey at the top left).
