Another from the picturesque village of Staithes. It's facing the same direction as yesterdays upload but taken from the footbridge. I liked the light on the buildings and the boats in the foreground. Of course, the water being in also makes for a very different feel.

As always thanks for looking and for your comments.

Nick, I like the light and composition in this - as before it's good to see an original take on Staithes!

But there are a couple of technical things that are a little distracting for me - firstly, it seems slightly wonky, leaning to the right a little, probably exacerbated by the wide angle diverging verticals and the fact that some of the houses are probably wonky themselves! For example, the reflection of the middle house is not directly under the house. My other point is that there seems quite a bit of noise, in particular in the sky.

I hope you don't mind me making these comments - they are meant to be constructive and are made very much as a fan of your work!

Thank you all.

Steve, I always appreciate and indeed value honest feedback - thank you for taking the time to do so. You're right about the noise - The shot was taken on 400 ISO and it has a tendency to a little noise.

As to the distortion, of course using a wide angle lens wide open is always risking some distortion although some of that is down to the age of the buildings I'm sure. Can't honestly give you an explanation about the reflection except perhaps for the angle of the viewing position.

Ultimately, I put this one up because I liked the colours and the composition with the boats in the foreground. Thanks once again for your comment.

And neither of those points can be faulted! Glad you took the comments the right way.

great reflections and lighting, buildings that old are supposed to be wonky

It is a good follow on shot from your previous one. Composition and detail just as good as the previous.

Great details!
I like the way the balance of light and shadow works beautifully to enhance this photo to a higher level and keep all the interest within the frame.

I love the rickety feel of this, Great exposure control. I kind of agree with Steve above - while the "wonkiness" adds to it, the non-matching reflection is a bit offputting. You could try a straighten using that middle house as a guide. Then again, I like the way you've just got the mooring post in bottom left..
hey, it's lovely Smile
