To windosil: Diagonal tangent

Good evening Winifred, I know what you mean here, and I think, although I can't remember, that I cropped the photo to avoid having a car in the scene. There is also a very limited POV to avoid...

St.Andrews

Your son was lucky to study there Winifred. I imagine that, in the 70s, the old gas works near the harbour had probably been demolished, together with the laundry on the East Sands; but, when I...

To faraujo: The non meteo expert

Thank you for that critique Filipe. I think you are probably right about the composition here, and maybe I was too keen to have the sailing ship in the centre of the photo. I am learning all the...
