Great set. Couple of strong clues to the location there!

Lovely set Martin. If I was to pick a favourite, it would be the red boat #4...

Great detail and so sharp....

Re: A Day at the Seaside

A super set from a place that I know well Martin. For some unfathomable reason that shell sculpture came in for a lot of criticism when it was installed, being referred to as an eyesore. At the same time the rusty corrugated iron fishermen's huts and equipment are seen as adding to the character of the place. I really like the sculpture and find it completely in harmony with its location.

Agreed, it was my fist time visiting that stretch of water, it appeared to attract a lot of attention but I think it's far enough away from the centre of town not to cause the "traditionalists" any issues but there will always be someone who will object
I guess its the same with all the rotting boats scattered about

Re: A Day at the Seaside

Not only are they good photos, I like the slightly subdued colour palette more each time I look. Presumably this is the effect of the Kodachrome setting.

it is yes, as much as I enjoy faffing around with photos in lightroom I don't really know what i'm doing so having these come straight out of camera it saves me buggering them up
