I like all things physics so I like this one too, Muted blue and slate grey, looks like Plymouth on a sunny day -- you'd only get that if you'd been there, seems they had a lot of battleship paint left over after the war.

The white dome is really prominent (not in a bad way) against the dark clouds and the grey/blue building it sits on.

Running a little late this week.. I took this last weekend and had it in my head that I had posted it! I spent some time at the coast but stopped off at Dunwich Forest on the way home and rather liked the sun falling through the trees. It also fitted the low key technique. Job done :)

Another image I really do like, dark and moody but with enough light to see it all.

Lesson learned this week: don't go to Southwold!

I went down to the harbour thinking about lots of boats with numbers. I don't mind people visiting but found myself getting frustrated with:
(a) people who have to drive to the cafes and try to find somewhere to park right next to them rather than using the extensive parking facilities and using their feet to walk the few hundred yards... and
(b) those driving trying to avoid the huge potholes (due to too much traffic) and not even saying thank you to those trying get out of their way.

Ok, rant over. Due to the number of cars parked around the moorings and boats potential shots were definitely limited but "numbers" bagged at least. For my sanity Southwold is now a no-go area for the rest of the summer (apart from dawn if I can drag myself out of bed).

In a town close to where I live (the next town along the coast) we also have the problem of people seemingly unable to walk a couple of hundred yards and trying to park right next to the pub/cafe/arcade/ice cream stall etc - it's bloody annoying! Mind you, not quite as annoying as the holidaymakers who, because they are on holiday, are obviously immortal so they can just wander around in the roads etc without a care in the world, or fear of injury. Anyway, rant(s) over...

I like the image, great colours and the crop works well for me as you've left enough detail to be able to easily recognise what it is. Good job and great for the theme.

Numbers looks like it's in need of some TLC, colourful shot.

I really like the striking colour on this. The rust(?) on the white lettering warms it up nicely. It's probably an image where I'd try and saturate the blues up a bit to hammer home the compliment with the red to see what it looked like. Probably easy to go OTT with it though and it might not fly.

Very tidy composition too.

I love boatyards - and this works very well!

Love a rusty tatty boat in a harbour, not so much out at sea!

People do seem to have lost the use of their legs, and it must be murder trying to social distance these days in such places, just as well that covid seems to be receding very quickly, fingers crossed it will continue and peter out.

Good work Helen, lovely colours in there and the composition works well with lots of interest and diverging lines.
