Digging for worms

By Nettles  
On a visit to the seaside on a glorious day yesterday I came across this man digging in the sand for Lug worms and Sand worms for bait.

The beach was peppered with the holes he had dug but as the tide was coming in quickly they would soon be filled again.

Two versions today, one with the clarity knocked down a bit.

Fine work Lass.

That was not me with my hearing dog at Castle Howard, he is a chap that walks the dogs before they go off to be trained and they do wonderful work.
You can't miss Mervyn and I as he looks like a Swamp Monster.

Both are superb, but the vote goes to V1 for the subtler tones.

V1-Nice silhouette effect, with some good detail in the background and the reflection coupled with a nice composition make this a very good image Smile, i would just probably crop it a bit from the top since there's not much in the sky but its just a personal preference and the image is good as it is Smile

Thanks for the idea of cropping Devlin, I'll give it a try.

My vote goes to V1 just to disagree with Mavis but I think they are both cracking images and I would be happy with either/or.
