I never fail to love the colour, textures and tones of rust. Lovely stuff Moira.

A wonderful feast of lovely rust and the out of focus boat balances it nicely Moira.

The shallow focus is magical Moira, a tidal wave of rust engulfs the beach.

Oh, how beautifully composed and focussed. But I saw the picture first before the technique. Smile

I like that idea. I was aiming for the horizon to echo the line of the rusty edge, I tried several compositions, this was the nearest I got to what I wanted.

Thanks for a wonderful compliment Chris, that's how it should be!
Cheers everyone, hope the week treats you well.

Mikbee will have kittens when he sees this. The bokeh (hate that bloody word - I tend to think of 'vomit' when I see it - but it has to be used) is wonderful. Could be a Martian landscape were it not for the hulk in the background.


Very clever,, thinking outside the box so to speak, good idea looks good and works a treat.

Lovely image. Can't help thinking that the colours and texture of the rust make it look as if it came straight from the oven and is ready to eat.

Thanks everyone, and particular thanks to Annette for her UA which is very much appreciated.
I have talked Bill into pruning the garden, we may both be absent for some time...

Rust. Hey that's Mick's job. He'll be after you with the union, putting him out of a job. Smile

A very alternative view of the beach.

I find this bit of rust rather upsetting Moira.
It puts me in mind of a ginger snap biscuit which I have a grear desire for.
Sadly,these days are at an end for me since I got all my maulers pulled out.
I would need falsers made from steel instead of plastic to get me back on track !!

A very fine specimen of rust, Moira, super tones and textures. The depth of field is just about right, throwing the boat enough out of focus, yet retaining its shape Smile

Wonderful image Moira, and no doubt as to where it was taken Smile

aniamoore beat me to it, Moira. A slightly over-baked brandy snap it is. Try one minute less baking time .Wink
Vanilla sauce in the background is particularly appropriate.

great Moira!, the fg in focus brings somehow the attention to the boat in bg, making it the main subject
an excellent study on composition, in the most creative sense.
