What an interesting shot. I love the solitary figure and the gull, the light from the sky reflected in the sand balances the image and the contrast between nature and industry. Great shot.

Industry meets Estuary. Very nice bit of split toning - the shoreline has that lovely metallic glint which complements the background subject matter very well.

Fantastic Alan , i love this mixture of nature and industry , it works really well. The copper tones of the beach are wonderful combined withe the steam/smoke in the background makes for a cracking image .

I like the toning and the scale is very deceptive. I thought this was quite an expanse of river until I noticed the bird and solitary figure. Very nicely done.

Beauty and the Beast. Plus a rather nicely placed bird (much more important than the human figure).
I like the way this flows up and down between two worlds. But I tend to think in squares, and it occurs to me that there are two good, alternative images to be had, from the upper and lower parts of the frame. They would be so very different from each other.

Spic'n'Span, ol' pal. And thanks for the UA, you curious little scot, that goes down nicely.

Thanks Dave, I've got this thing about wet sand. No toning though, just the colour of low sunlight.

That's interesting, Moira, because I've actually done 3 squarish crops from this. Great minds......Wink

Big swirls and small swirls, a lot to absorb despite the apparent simplicity.

The textures and metallic colours of this scene confuse the senses quite nicely, stark industrial vs beautiful natural patterns and textures two extremes competing yet combining to produce a very individual image and pleasing image
