On May 6th 2010 the British electorate went to the polls. This is the first time that I have not been in the UK for a General Election, and so with my postal vote secure, and my camera in my hand, I decided to walk on this nearby beach, partly to get away from the news reportage. Little did I realise, with only 20 minutes to go before the polls closed, what chaos would follow for 5 days after the event. The 'ripple effect' as a result of the votes, may lead to big changes.
Sunset photos are over-used I know, but maybe this one is partly due to Eyjafjallajokull.

This is a superb shot. The orange pink tone from the sunset is warm and in contrast to the cold blue tones on the sand in the foreground. I like the silhouette from the land formation in the distance. Compositionally you have placed this perfectly as per the the rule of thirds. I also like the shadow that runs between the sea and sand. You have composed the shot so that this runs at a slight diagonal which is easy on the eye. The ripples in sand provide an interesting feature in the foreground area. Good work.

Pleasant timing here to have the subtle sunset colors add glow to the water, sky and foreground sand graphism
Have a nice day JY

Hi Amelia, a very clever effect.. The politics has been great fun over here- maybe more exciting than for many a year- yup there will be waves and ripples for years to come.. Great sunset .., Rich

Hi Amelia madam,
It's another superb shot. Great capture of sand layers. But I feel a bit extra blue tone. Still a splendid shot.
