    East Sands St. Andrews

    Noticed this gentleman sitting relaxing at the beach. Photo converted to black and white in Lightroom. All comments welcome.

    Good composition, apart from the bottom left corner.

    However, I would like to have seen a little more sharpness on the man, possibly a slightly narrower aperture?

    Thanks Geoff. Wanted the narrow depth of field to throw thr the caravan park in the background out of focus and so give a layer effect of near, mid and far distance. Bush in left hand corner rather messy, especially with my logo on it.

    I like the caravan park..it speaks of holidays past and brings emotion to the subject. ( I remember holidays there very well!)

    Yer logo needs to gogo Dave..it's spoiling yer shots and speaks of an arrogance that I don't think you have or want to have.

    Thanks Sharon, logo going on this and quality of jpegs improved. Logo added in facebook as so many photos were going walkabouts and ending up under other people's name.

    Like yourself I have great memories of holidays up in the caravan park, one of the reason's I return to the town so often.

    Hi David,

    What I like is the similarity between his socks/feet and the bench legs

    I agree, the colour, at least, in the logo should not be in a mono image.

    Cheers,
