I absolutely love the silver horizon you always get! The figures are always well placed.
Lovely composition.

Love the bands, the framing and the fam on the beach as the end of summer approaches.

Super composition. Like the layers, tones lead in & the placement of the silhouetted figures. Excellent

Beautifully composed, juxtaposing the delightful family group against the silver sea with the discarded tyre and air of general desolation in the foreground. Strong stuff.
I agree with Cliff about the lead-in; except that my eye was instinctively drawn to the light area first before retreating to the dead tyre.

Yes, I quite liked the effect of that. Which is just as well, as I couldn't find a way round it GrinGrin

Cheers, Bill.

Like the composition, Alan, with everything of interest squished on the edges.

County Durham beaches are like nowhere else on earth...
The tyres create a lead-in but it's a nicely rambling, lazy one.
I could have fun with moving that foreground tyre to the right and then cropping to portrait. But that would be a very different picture.

Morning old chap... The layers make the image, both in terms of light and content. Like Bill, my eye is drawn instinctively to the light, picking up the family and then being lead top to bottom of the image anding in the tyre. This has created a story of changing emotions too, from the joyful family outing to the "discarded tyre and air of general desolation in the foreground" as Bill described it.

Not by any means a simple composition, either in technical or emotional terms. Told you I was in a dark mood! The wife has the earplugs!!!

Interesting, subtle variety of images from the one location. I'm assuming it's the same beach. The figures are intriguing, look like aliens.

I like the silhouettes and the composition. The tyre appeals very much to me, that is my personal occupational meantal illness Smile.
