Swan Dive

The lighthouse and statue down at Scarborough harbour, tried to make the converging verticals work for me.

Taken with the E-420 and kit 42-45mm lens

Re: Swan Dive

I like this. You have thought about how to combine the two subjects and it works for me. Perhaps the inclusion of the whole of her feet, and cloning out the base (which I guess she stands on) would make it look like she is in the air.

Re: Swan Dive

I really like this, I aggree with the base as benvendetta advised, though what really catches my eye is the little bit of barrier in the bottom right hand corner, but a really nice picture

Re: Swan Dive

Thanks guys, Dave you are right about the plinth would have got in the shot.
A shame i did not think of your suggestion at the time I took it as I cropped it in camera to keep the plinth out.
