Good Morning Everyone,
This morning, something a little different.
Imagination - The ability of the mind to be creative or resourceful.
When we arrived at Plymouth Docks, I noticed this lovely fencing, mimicking the movement of the waves and between the posts was a view of Plymouth Harbour.
I found it utterly beautiful and was surprised how easily my imagination could switch between the undulating waves, or fill in the gaps to see the view of Plymouth.
The shot is a bit like a reflection in reverse.
I hope you enjoy the experience.
Have a great day, Bev :-)

your imagination resulted in a very beautiful photo, it's airy and fresh with wonderful lines. The feeling of a very nice day is what I get from this lovely shot.
Thanks and all the best!

Good morning Beverly,
Amazing how well you managed this, the iron-bars fence forming an artistic wave's shape, that added much interest to the scene we looking at. Without this addition it would had been yet "another" pier and bay picture.
Nicely spotted, applied a fabulous photojob.

hi Bev, really an innovative idea to show the view through this very well designed fencing. The curves of it added graphism and created here a nice perspective. Excellent depth and sharpness. Well controlled light. A very enjoyable one. Tfs.

I like the wavy graphical effect and the way the pattern in the fg fence mirrors the shape of the bg building in the centre. Good sharpness and superb framing and composition. The minimalist colour works well here. The strong diagonals create dynamism and provide good lead in lines and diminishing linear perspective. Tfs!

Those railings are very cool and reading your ntoe about flicking from looking at to looking through, thats all I want to do now. Its like light on, light off, and a great trick on the eye. I think your point of view works wonders in enhancing this effect here as well. Really great scene.
Have a great weekend.
P.S. Misery Hill is so named because back in the days of piracy, convicted criminals would be locked in eally small cages and left to die in public view at this place, as a warning to other wannabe criminals :)

The shapes in the fence have broken up the view in a rather interesting way. The blue and grey, almost silvery tones, are harmonious. Very nicely done.
Kind Regards, Ann

Without the waves of the fence this picture wouldn't be the same.
Very well observed and captured!
Best regards, Paul

Good Morning Bev
Yes - an imaginative shot that does play with your eyes as you look at this. What I especially like is the way the top of the metal twists in the fence wave peaks perfectly with the top of the building in the distance - so as to make the building look like a series of those thin tall houses you see in Amsterdam.

A most interesting and unusual composition. The railings with their wavy lines are somewhat mesmerising and yet as you say they do no prevent us from taking in the view of the city in the background. I like the soft light and colours.

Nicely constructed shot looking through the railings towards Plymoth in the background . Good POV allowing the town to be seen. A little more to the right and the view would be blocked. A little more to the left and the effect would be lost. Great artistic presentation.

I really like the end result you achieved here and strong visual effect of the image!
I like how the fence divides the scene into two different parts and how it creates together with the clouds so unique,kind of "metallic" look of the scene.But of course the most I enjoy here your creative vision and these "waves" in the fence.
Excellently observed and executed!
Have a nice sunday
