Hi Heather,

You've made an excellent start to your 52 project.
I really like the mood and character in your local shot. the mono treatment really suits the building style.
Pleasure is an excellent image too. Great timing and perfect shutter speed to capture the moment.
Tool is a very nice shot too. I love the angle and the fact that they are in the box but there are a couple left randomly in the background. Very nice (y)

A good use of diagonals and nicely processed. I would have cropped in a bit tighter to lose the distracting one on the top left. That's just me though - I either crop in a bit too tight or not enough!

Week 3 - Discarded
Today I headed down to the beach and found all these pots "Discarded" at the back of the fisheries buildings.

Linky :D

Discarded is a great shot, loving the low angle you took it at. The little bit of cloud helps make it plus in B&W too good job.

You got the LINKY right, now go back to it and click at the end of LINKY after the Y hit your Enter button a couple of times then click Attach files and upload then click Full Size and post.

PS: you have to put your photo in TWICE, once in here and once after the word LINKY.

No need to wait until next week, Heather, you can edit your own thread.

But for this week your friendly neighborhood snake has done it for you (y)
Cheers Cobra, eventually got it right tonight with help from Dave70D. Hopefully you won’t have to be picking up my pieces again ;-).

Looking good, the composition works well, the highlights are well handled and the black & white conversion has a good range of tones.
Thanks Nostromo, I really appreciate you feedback... I’ve got a whole load of learning to do with regards to editing. ;-)

Thankyou Cloudforest, to crop or not to crop that is the question ;-), not sure I am ever going to get the answer right :)

Hi Heather, that's a great choice of subject for this theme and I really like the diagonals. You have controlled the reflections and highlights well, and B&W brings out the textures and details (y)
Thanks Manxmaid, the diagonals did it for me it took me ages trying to get my composition just right. Happy with my efforts.

Nice B&W processing Heather, that works nicely.
I dunno... All these togs with the seaside at their doorstep...
Thanks Tim, I took quite a lot of photos for this theme and it was my better half who said to post this one.
I moved from the M25 area down onto the coast 3 years ago and don’t regret the move apart from when the seagulls are cracking the shellfish on my dorma roof at 5 in the morning. ;-)
