I found my first exploration of Plymouth very interesting. Yesterday I posted a shot of Smeaton's Tower; today it is a shot of the promenade.
The colourful flags, promoting Ocean City Festival, made the lovely curves of the railings even more attractive.
I had never heard of the festival but, of course, had to know more. If you follow this link all will be revealed.
In the photograph, you can see the two tier system of the promenade and to the left, the façade of Gary Rhodes Restaurant 'The Dome'.
Thanks for stopping by. Maybe you will be interested in exploring Plymouth in the future, Best Wishes, Bev

J'apprécie le cadrage judicieux mettant en valeur ces arrondis, ces drapeaux qui claquent au vent.
Il existe un petit air festif fort agréable.
Très bonne soirée.

As usual, Bev, your eye for composition shows here. The two sinuous lines of the concrete get elevated and echoed in the flags, which add a colorful centre to the piece. Very nicely done!

Good morning Beverly,
Colorful flags show how windy it was, and their colors vividly gave extra tones here.
What may be much interesting is the view from this promenade above town and over to the open sea.
Modern curves well shown, light was a bit too mild - but, the place looks as interesting location.
Have a nice weekend,

The curving balustrade and the line of flags are very good parts of this well composed picture. But the wind is blowing in the wrong direction ;) Still a fine picture and interesting note.

nice shot of the prom here, with elegant sweeping curves drawing us in and a flurry of colour coming from the flags fluttering in the sea breeze. Excellent composition and irresistible presentation.
Enjoy the weekend - B.

you've created a wonderful layered composition, the geometry of the lines is very attractive. Nice redering of a sunny and a bit windy day.:)
My best wishes

You chose a very well angle, the handrail cares for a nice perspective and depth picture, we can nice follow the line together with the flags.
Nice architecture picture with the a lot stairs.
Also a very well detailed picture with a lot sharpness made.
Excellent composition, lovely presentation.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

You have composed the shot very well, making excellent use of the sinuous lines offered by the railings and concrete edging. The flags fluttering in the strong wind add some good splashes of colour.

This is a delightful shot which benefits greatly from a very well considered and executed composition. You might have partly achieved this by means of judicious cropping but I rather suspect that you considered the composition very much at the time you took this picture.
Obviously you were attracted by the curving railings and they have provided you with lovely "lead-in" lines to your composition. Otherwise, the lighting and colours are excellent, your exposure spot-on and the details and sharpness excellent. And, of course, the inclusion of the couple climbing the steps at the bottom of the image really do add to the overall appeal.

Nice use of the curved rail to act as a leading line. The couple below add a further element of visual interest. So many graphic shapes underlying varying aspects of this composition make it pleasing to my eye.

Love the angle you have taken this picture from as it shows the fantastic curves of the balconies and the railings. The flags add nice colours to the shot and give us an idea of how windy it was on the day.

this is a well composed image with the curved lines of the promenade and the line of the railing curving from bottom left.I am scrolling up and down to see the whole image and can't be sure whether I would prefer to see some of the sky cropped and have it topped by the coloured flags. I rather like the pink ice cream van.

It is a very colorful scene of the promenade, the wind is constant and consisten to fly all these flag in perfect unision :) Which is great for your composition and visual. The image has good depth with layer of elements with the cure of the rail leading our vision in. Lovely detial throughout the whole iamge, very good shot.

The reversed 's' shaped curve of the upper railing which is mirrored to a certain extent by the lower railing, provide good lead in lines for the superb composition. Excellent sharpness and good pov with some height. Tfs!

This promenade has changed a great deal since I saw it in 1996. I like the vantage point you've chosen to show so much of the area. I can almost hear the howling winds, with the flags all polarized in the same direction.
