Caster Harbour

Photo Information
Inspired by that prominent crack in the rock in the foreground. Somehw looks better with the smallest hint of colour than fully mono (I think?)

Grand image, Stuart!.
I don't think the colour is relevant.
But the composition most certainly is.
"That" crack leads the eye to the boat, then it's an easy, encouraged jump to the r. harbour wall, down through its reflection,to the jumble of stones, to the slab of rock, with its interesting textures & back to the principle subject: "that" crack.
There to be seen by all.
But only you've recorded it .
For us to see & enjoy.
For which, many thanks!


P.S., get it on your wall!
I would!
The more I look, the more there is to see!

Roger has said it all, works so well in portrait, well taken. Benefits from the larger view IMO

Everything works compositionally, as Roger says. It's what I always look for but seldom find: compelling interest in foreground, middle ground and sky. (Jim's right: it is slightly wonky!)
Best wishes,

thanks for your nice cooments and in particular your note on the wonky horizon, I always appreciate some constructuve feedback!. I have also notuced that when I moved the boat I forgot to move the reflection.. Zoomed in too far and too little time!
