Very good, I had a similar idea using a leaf spring on a trailer drawbar but when I tried it just looked a mess. I’m glad I didn’t stick with it now as I’d not have caught anything like the detail you have there :)

Well spotted and a nice bit of lateral thinking.
Thanks, Helen.

Thanks, would like to see your version though.

A technique that I would never thought of or even attempt to try. And now, all thanks to this 52 Challenge taken me completely out of my comfort zone, I have, at least, able to say I've taken my very first Low Key shot.

Well shot.. just enough shadow to make it a definite low key image.

Well composed. I think you could lift the exposure in the flowers (petals) a little and still be within the low-key theme.

It's probably too much of a crop but I went to Flickr and zoomed in until I had the same aspect ration but really zoomed in on the two wind turbines and the two figures on the beach as an alternative picture. Darken the sky a bit and try to get a bit of contrast to accentuate the clouds. B&W perhaps with red filter?

Pickiness apart, it's a lovely seaside image.

That looks like a lovely place to get out and about to! There is an almost painterly feel to this image, I think due to all the puddles of water. Very nice!
Thanks, Be. It's one of the better and cleaner beaches around here but no weather to go with it.

Thanks, Martin. That's a thought.

That's a lovely looking bit of coast line. I wonder if a bit off of the top would work. I'm not sure if you need all of the sky.
I really like the areas of wet sand and how they weave their way into the distance.

Out and about is a nice sunny shot, but I got to say I love this one Stan. Great lighting and great in B&W too. Cracking image.

Thanks, Dominic. Good shout about the sky. The shot is SOOC and it was a last-minute decision to use it for the theme.

Shapes is a nice early evening shot maybe a sunset looking at the little cloud behind.

Shapes
An unusual crop, I'd normally expect to see the whole wheel, but it still works for me. The sunset on the cloud just below the centre of the wheel is a nice touch.
