All with the Pentax K1. The first with the Pentax HD D FA 24-70mm and the others with the Irix 15mm.
Processed all in mono as the light was poor and I found I felt the subjects suited a mono finish over colour.

I would of stayed longer but the dog decided to behave like an absolute tool and run around like he'd just been let out after a year in prison and jumped at everything before grabbing the boys coats and running INTO THE SEA with them both so completely soaked.
Oh, and having no change of clothes in the car or any blankets or towels and the dog soaking their coats what did my boys decide to do in the freezing sea ?

Was a very chilly walk back to the car for them both

Boys will be boys. And a dog will be... whatever a dog decides to be, and usually at the most inconvenient time .

Mono was the right choice. Love the skies .

I like No 1 best - probably because it shows the boats in a good conventional viewpoint. All good, and you were right to chose monochrome here.

Isn't it strange how small children don't seem to mind a freezing cold sea. But I'll bet they were winging all the way home. Where was the dog?

Nice set. I think No. 1 is my favourite. K.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

It's the second image for me Gareth. The "more moody" approach says more. Your going nowhere is my take on a title. The darker, deeper processing works to effect that. A good set and not a weak image in there.

Best regards

The moody processing of no.2 really suits the image Gareth

All fine Gareth, but I agree on 2 standing out - processing and composition are spot on.
