Crystal spray

By redstag  
This is a shot I don't expect to do well, however, I really like the light on the spray and the low sun on this, but as I say, I don't expect it to have a very broad appeal.

I took the shot last year on a trip down to Brighton. I took the opportunity to visit my Dad's hometown of Seaford.

A different crop may have better impact, because it is a bit 50:50, but, I like the balance.

I have ticked mods, and would be pleased if anyone wants to have a play with the shot.

I would value any comments, even if it is to say I really don't get it, or similar.

Hope you do enjoy it thanks for looking.

Might have been tempted to take away a bit of fg and a bit of sky. But the water is very effective

Like the real moodyness to this image. Sheer quality on my laptop. I think that it might do better than you expect.

I know it 50/50 but to me it works well in this take

cant be modded in my eyes john , the image and title are wonderful. That backlit weed thing just sums up the setting sun perfectly. Real nice and calming.

I like the way the light in the far distance seeps into the picture by reflections on the foreground!

a worthy image for sure!

Added a mod, cropping in quite tightly. Well caught.

Ant love the mod, the lightening is a good plan and your crop works on the splash well.

Thanks everyone for the mods and comments, this has done better than I expected. Trouble is, who wins a virtual mars bar for their mod?

Watch this space.
