The beach

Posted by
Doug (Burnham-on-Sea, United Kingdom) on 27 March 2015 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Taken on the beach just down the road from us in Brean

Canon EOS 60D 1/320 second F/6.3 ISO 200 128 mm


Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.

Nice use of leading lines and interesting processing to give this a very different look.

The fence seems to march us right into the ocean. Nice use of depth of field. Makes the shot a bit mysterious.

Magnificent composition, Doug!! I love the perfect placement you have employed here. And although the day looks gray, the mood (thanks to the fence and emotion conveyed ) is a happy one. This is just spectacular sir. ... ps- Glad to see your comment to me as well.... Thank You! I sometimes fail in my attempts to be humorous and was afraid that my email message yesterday may have used wrong terminology ( read "rant") when I was just trying to be "funny ha ha".. All the best to you both ;-)

Each post has its own personal pool which is rather nice. I'm not quite so sure about the choice of focal point as the eye is led towards blur. I note others like this and I suspect it was your intention, but to an old fuddy duddy like me it feels as though I've forgotten to put my glasses on :)

I don't believe I've ever seen a fence line like this in the states but I certainly like the reflections in the puddles below each post.

A wonderful image Doug. I really like the perspective and the how the eye is lead down the barrier fence. Beautiful selective focus.

Ps I completely concur with Elaine!

Hi Doug, I do have to agree with "grouser from Ludlow" It may have worked better if the focal point had been a bit more in focus therefore giving more DOF to the image. We used to call these Breakwaters.
