I like them, but at a distance.
Like this.
Great composition, Alan.

Yes, I think they can often look rather nice. I just think that for the most part they're a colossal bloody waste of money.
Thanks, Bill.

Rising up in layers, in the way that I normally associate with portrait compositions. Landscape 'should' read left to right not up and down, but it works here because of the high horizon.
Composition is one of my obsessions, thanks for waking my brain up today. I've just given my UA otherwise this would get it.

Thanks, Moira, that means a lot. As far as I'm concerned, if you ain't got composition, then you ain't got nowt. Can't possibly agree with any kind of a "should," though. Not in my vocabulary.Smile

The inverted commas are important... You learn the rules in order to break them creatively and make something dynamic rather than static. I may have asked before, but have you come across Michael Freeman's writings? The Photographer's Eye is brilliant.

Yes, I did get the point of the ".."'s Smile, I should have made that clear Blush I think we're "on the same page," Moira, as our American cousins are wont to say.Smile

Michael Freeman. Heard of him, yes. Come across his writings, no. Has he come across mine? GrinGrin

Strong banding of light and texture, Alan. Perfect for mono. Today's eye-sores are tomorrow's heritage... and they do make good subjects. Grin

Quote: Today's eye-sores are tomorrow's heritage

True enough mate.
Cheers Smile

You'd appreciate The Photographer's Eye, I think. A whole book about composition (more accurately, how the eye reads the image), and he doesn't mention the Rule of Thirds once. It's not light reading.

Thanks, Moira. Might just look it up. Need a break from The Beano. Grin

I first viewed this on my iPhone and it looked goo if not a little small, on my laptop its brilliant.... all of the things the others have said but can't see any comments about that gorgeoous light on the wet sand... brilliant isn't too strong a word.

Must admit, Mark, once I'd given it a swift boot up the jaxi in PSE I was a bit more chuffed than I expected to be Smile
You are too kind, and the tenner is in the post Smile
