Weymouth's fine Georgian seafront is an impressive backdrop to the long arc of fine, golden sand. The views from the bay are spectacular, stretching across the horizon taking in the World Heritage Jurassic Coastline.

An attractive shot of the English 'seaside' Les. My grandsons would love to play a round of crazy golf on this colourful course. A nice sunny day but quite cool judging by the clothing of the beach-goers. Still nothing like a walk along the sands in the fine weather is there? A shot which evokes childhood memories for me. Lovely colours and light and what an attractive sky. Warm regards Rosemary

It's nice to see something different and, for me, crazy golf on an English beach is certainly a first.
Your shot is colourful and textured, with good use of light and shadow.
It looks like a bracing rather than a warm day, with figures striding out along the beach.
You have captured a fine sense of depth.
Have a great day,

J'aime beaucoup cette composition. Le petit terrain de golf miniature est très coloré et attirant sur la plage. L'image est profonde et lumineuse.

crazy golf - ah! that brings back memories of childhood UK beach holidays, but I do not remember them being as colourful or a sophisticated as these look. Nice capture of an English seaside and a real sense of summer being over for another year. Original imagery!

A colourful scene, thanks to the strange, bright features of the mini-golf course in the foreground - you found a great subject there! You composed this very well to achieve a good depth, and I like the subdued September light on the beach. Perhaps the sky has a little too much contrast, though.

TE is supposed to teach us about the world, and this picture taught me something today. Actually not about Weymouth, but I had no idea that this game of "mini-golf" is know as crazy golf in Britain. While learning this I also had the pleasure of viewing the colourful and unusual foreground and the people strolling along the beach. It's a very nice view and I get an impression of fresh air.

This is the first time I've ever seen a miniature golf course on a beach, and it's great! :) I didn't immediately recognize it as such from the gallery size image, so it was a lot of fun to see it full view and really get a hold of the concept. As a big fan of patterns and shapes, this speaks to my senses...especially with the strong contrast of colors against the earthy tones from the sand. What a great sky too, the clouds add an extra punch but do not distract from the main point of focus in any way. A really fun and smart composition that has turned out to be rather pleasing indeed! Have a great day ahead.
Friendly wishes from the States,

magnificent composition with strong graphics!
This colorful playground provides really eye-catching element to your composition,but I like also this soft ligt(btw.it affects really nice the color scheme of the scene)and the sky,which helps you to create so unique mood.
Have a nice weekend
