Good day to you all at ePz

Firstly I would like to thank you all for your wonderful and caring comments following yesterdays upload. As you know yesterday was not a good day for me, however I did manage to get out for a short while and whilst doing so I managed to grab a few images with my little compact.

Secondly it is 01:30 hours I am wide awake, can't seem to get to sleep, so I shall put my time to good use and try to catch up with some viewing and commenting.

I hope that you all have a great day, for me who knows.

Regards NathanGrinGrinGrin

Lovely capture with good contrast. My choice is V2 as I think you get better texture in colour. Well done Nathan.

V1 = class
Beautiful afternoon light in both, love the birds atop the huts. I like them both equally Nathan, great work here.

Hope you get to push out some zzzzzs soon!!

Snap !!! Can't sleep either so here I am at 02.50.
I really like this image, Nathan, the row of huts caught in a wintery sun but with a very heavy overcast of grey beyond.
I am torn between the two versions so 1/2 vote to each.
PS. ....... hope today is better for you.

I like V2 for the different coloured trims on the beach huts but V1 is truly stunning. Waiting for Mr Hitchcock to peep around the corner any second now. Grin

What a dark and brooding sky Nathan, great comp, like the birds on the on the roof it's allmost like they are waiting for the storm, like both images well capturedSmile

24 Mar 2014 7:48AM
Counting the slats of the huts in these two fine renditions may help your insomnia, Nathan?
Having said which, the hut four back may have cause for some confusion...?!
I like the steely blue sky of V2 and the lighting effect on the huts.

24 Mar 2014 7:51AM
Two images with beautifully white whites!
Can't choose between the two but, I do like the colours of the painted roof edges in V2!
Hope today is better for you, Nathan.

Great capture, Nathan, and two cracking versions here Smile Think both work equally well and for different reasons. The mono is lovely quality, and being dark and moody, with the birds perched on top of the huts give it an Alfred Hitchcock feel about it! Beach huts are about colour, and though we don't we see much colour in these, they do have a more individual feel to them. So, half a vote for each, seeing as I can't give you two votes! Wink
Take care, and hope you get a better night's sleep tonight...

Hope you managed to get some restful kip in the end last night Nathan. This is a lovely shot and I definitely prefer the mono version. I love the addition of the crows - I don't think it would work for me without them, for some reason.
