    The wet curves of the sea-wall, exposed at low tide after rain, and foreshortened and emphasised by a long lens, drew me into this shot. Black and white showed the shapes best. Does it work?

    Yes it does work...it leads the viewer's eye right into and through the image.

    I appreciate the speedy response guys. I've looked at this shot, taken a fortnight ago, and not been able to make up my mind about the composition, the tonal range, and whether it's just too "busy". I'm pleased to get some positives on it - thanks.

    Regards, Tony

    You have a true winner! :) I love it! The curves set everything in place. Was it set up that way, or just a fluke?

    Thanks for the further kind comments kemizz, Finisher & JenniferLynn. JL, I spotted the curves as I walked along, and saw how the long zoom compressed them, then I waited for some figures to appear on the promenade to give a focus and some strong definition.

    Regards, Tony

    You ask if it works?

    It DOES!
    Perfectly so!

    One more "genuine Boughen" here! You do spot your lines and curves and shapes so well all the time, I really admire you for that. And you always seem to know which lens is best and which exposure and all that ... wow. I am in awe. :hail:

    I totally dig it, especially the high contrast of the water on the steps. It would even work as an abstract if it were cropped just to show the steps.

    Thanks Corinna and Wolff. I don't usually post anything I have doubts about, but I kept switching between liking and being unsure about this one. Its a location I'll have another shot at, probably in the sunlight with dry steps! I agree about the steps themselves Wolff, and I did take a couple of shots of just the curves. I'll have to have another look at them.

    Regards, Tony
