Some really nice shots (again) - I like your treatment of the Buick, and Wet and Wilting is evocative of Autumn days

Be careful how you use your next post - it'll be your 1000th

Hang on! There's some landscapes here (well. 'boatscapes' anyway ) ....

I'm glad you got back into it, because these are some of the best, most polished images I've seen from you ! No 2 is a 'wow' shot for me, perfect layout and a gorgeous time of day. The lighting is great in all of them, the dead wood and fungi having a real 'bloom' effect. The processing has your stamp all over it with the sort of vignette thing. The old barge is amazing.

Sorry. I can't appreciate the car one, it's too effecty for me. Anyway, a great set of images ... Lets hope you don't lose that motivation again .

2 is my favourite, love the composition and natural processing, can imagin being there. Although I'm not usually a fan of heavily processed shots, I also really like no.4, great sense of decay and the orange rope adds hugely to the composition.

A pleasing set. The concrete boat is nicely detailed.
Best wishes,

thanks for all the comments, i loved that little harbour and could have spent the week there but "she who must be obeyed" was in tow so no chance. the pp on the car was to try to keep it but hide the car park it was in. the concrete barge had very little processing just a structure and saturation boost really. caught me out there Nigel

Lovely set, particularly from No.4 onwards. The concrete barge shot is my favourite.
