Kids in school this morning at a half day club so me wife and I went for a bacon sarnie and a coffee at Barry Island. Took the Samyang 85mm with me as its gathering some dust and wanted to get antiquated with it again.

Sounds great, looks great, what could be better than a photo walk plus bacon!
Best regards, John

Nice set Gareth, although I'm having a hard time working out what I'm looking at in the first two. Are they composite images? The cleaned up one for me looks better.
Mirroring John's comment above, I too believe that everything is better with bacon.

It does sound like a good few hours out. I particularly like the beach hut abstracts. I'd also give my vote to the cleaned up version.

I prefer the uncleaned up version. I think the beach looks unnatural, to smooth, not even a wrinkle in the sand. To clinical for me. I'm not against cleaning up where needed but not in this instance for me.
CHEERS Vic.
Born again biker with lots of Pentax bits. Every day I wake up is a good day. I'm so old I don't even buy green bananas.

Thanks all

Vic! Before anyone gets their feet or dogs paws on the beach in the mornings that is how the beach looks! Unspoilt and smooth!

Kingalew. They are beach huts. Here is how they look normally. Linking the image as it was shot with a different brand. I shot them today with a tight angle so they compressed into abstract lines and shapes.

I thought it was only me who used antiquated equipment...

Ignore me. Being pedantic again. Back on topic, I love the beach hut abstracts with the second one being, to my eye, marginally better than the first.

Best wishes, Kris.

I do like those huts, very colourful and a great angle. I don't think i would have thought of that. Cracker.
