Thank you , Matt.Smile


The colours and tones of the buoy contrast nicely with the surrounding mud flats, and I like the angle at which you have presented the image.....what's stopping it rolling down the hill?WinkWink
Nice one, Jasmine.

Thank you Ronne. Yes,Very sharp, right on the point. I was going to title it "Not falling.." because it's a Bouy and this shows.. not falling...Grin


Love this composition to bits Jasmine, a composition which really makes one sit up and pay attention.

Regards Nathan


I like how you tilted the image/camera and left the buoy on a 'third' with the sun coming from the same direction as the slope. Dynamic but very 'easy on the eye'. Well conceived and executed, Jasmine.

Thank you Dave. I gave it several crops.. it was in a bit distance...There were three there, I intended to use the three one.. but they were too apart..
Thank you Nathan.

Love your diagonal water lines, Jasmine, the great light and reflection of the buoy. You've positioned it nicely in the frame, too. It reminds me a bit of a poppy seedheadGrin.


Interesting angle adds interest to this shot.

Thank you Pamela. I have to tell you the truth about the photo..Grin.This one is the rotated one, I got the idea from another photo with three buoys that I took after the single buoy.. The three buoys connected with a string was shot at this angle, in my mind was "not falling" at the moment while I took the photo.. but the buoys were too farflung, the image didn't look strong enough, I couldn't get rid of the thought of "not falling" when I looked at the photos, so I rotated the single buoy on computer..Grin
Thank you Lynne. How are you doing in your holiday home? It was raining here, just stopped, 11C at the moment, I bet you are laughingGrin.. enjoy your sun shine.. hope the red pot is boiling...
