As the snow finally melted enough for me to get out yesterday for the first weekend in a while - I headed over to Whitby.

Here is a selection of shots from the day. All taken hand held on the K20D using either the Sigma 10-20, Pentax 55-300 or Pentax f1.4 50 prime

No PP other than cropping and some slight exposure corrections

All c+c welcome

Carl

Lonely Pier



Andrewesque




The Bridge



East Side



The Harbour



Marina at Dusk



Window Shopping



Rigging


No matter how many lenses I have owned - I have always needed just one more

In order of preference: Window shopping, well exposed and an interesting scene. East side, nice light and reflections. Marina at Dusk, can not resist a sun set. The other two I wonder about is The Habour, is it sharp enough and Andrewesque, would it be better in landscape.

Re Harbour - now I look again - you are right - it is slightly off.
Re Andrewesque - not sure - here is a landscape version for you to compare

Andrewesque: Landscape for me. It goes with the shape of the subject.

My personal fav's are, in no particular order, Lonely Pier, The Bridge and East Side. I like the skies and the reflections

A really varied and interesting set. Super vivid colour. of course I like the rusty bollard thing but the night-time shots are really nicely handled too. My favourite is probably East Side: it's well composed and has that great reflection.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Lonely Pier and Marina at dusk for me.

With the Andrewesque comments I'm guessing you may have noticed the diversity in his shots - soon it may not be 'rusty' that is Andrewesque but just a cracking shot that is - who knows

Thank you all for your comments

Andrew - There was no intended suggestion from me in my title "Andrewesque"
that you only photograph rust - I am a big fan of your lamdscapes and other work too. Merely that as a subject - you have made it yours and I find it hard to look at anything in decay and not think of some of your wonderful shots. I hope it was taken in the light hearted spirit intended.

A great set of images with fantastic colour rendition. Window Shopping, Lonely Pier and The Bridge are among my favourites.

I know you were not having a go Stuey and I know that most will realise that my tongue in cheek 'homage' to Andrew was just that - and meant with respect, but I am also aware that sometimes my sense of humour can be misuderstood and just wanted to make sure that my 'bit of fun' did not cause any offense

I understand completely - my sense of humour gets me in trouble fairly often
