A sunny spring day in Eastbourne, East Sussex, England. Warm but not a soul on the pebble strewn beach. Autumn has arrived here in the UK and with a blink of an eye the summer has gone……………
Nobody on the road, nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air the summer's out of reach
Empty lake empty streets, the sun goes down alone
I'm driving past your house, though you're not home.

That's too much my friend!!!!! It's incredible! I would have loved to shoot it!!!The POV is just superb and the light and colors, so special....FANTASTIC!!!!

I love the colours and your well thought out graphic composition. The image and your note fit together like a glove. The image has near perfect bilateral symmetry which is only upset by the clouds.
On deeper reflection, it is a very powerful image.

very interesting and minimalistuc photo!
The sharpness is so strong that those house details look like a computer graphics,
I like the colours and the POV also,

A fine bookmark shot, wonderfully composed and with colours that co-ordinate sublimely. A real 'artist's piece. I could see this as a piece of needlecraft ... wish I had the skill!
Have a lovely day,

Great idea this composition. I like a lot.
The sky is very interesting, and the lower part makes the shot very unique.
Very well done.

This one is actually tempting to print out and use as a bookmark for beach reading, Brian. I love the use of empty space to compose the shot, and the bright blue lines running through the sloping roofs of the structures add a nice graphic element. nicely drenched in color, and a beautiful blue sky above it all - fantastic choices of subject and framing. Enjoy the week.

With very few elements, you managed a spendid graphical composition with a great visual effect. Nice spotting here, I like the vivid colours and the subtle use of light to enhance the different textures you've been able to capture. Excellent work !

HimalAnda (5618) 2012-09-03 10:46
Congratulations for this very artistic picture, colorful, symetric and geometrical.
finlay (1533) 2012-09-03 10:51
You must have an artist's eye to see this pov. With wonderful bold colours it makes a great graphical image.
williewhistler (7257) 2012-09-03 11:10
a very clever and colourful bookmark ,I enjoy the graphic shapes and imaginative composition.
Highmountains (1834) 2012-09-03 12:16
Amazing precision in composition. The beauty of the sea and the pebbles on the beach are perhaps enhanced by the narrow point of vision throgh which the viewer anxiously and expectantly looks at the lower part of the photograph.
On the top are the the flowing layers of white clouds on deep blue skies.
Pleanty of sharp colours in the photograph - and honestly - I do not miss the absence of a soul. The photograph affords space for silent contemplation.
Thanks for sharing.
rbassin (11087) 2012-09-03 13:33
une magnifique composition,très bien cadrée.
J'aime la précision, l'originalité et le graphisme de cette oeuvre.
siudzi (23837) 2012-09-03 13:51
Excellent and very creative composition based on brilliant graphical concept. Bravo! Very well seen and executed. TFS!
jjcordier (62280) 2012-09-03 22:46
Super compo, rendue encore plus originale par ce format marque-pages. Graphique et coloré à souhait!

Hi dear Brian
I'm showing my age here, but this reminds me of a Chris Rea album cover...One The Beach or some such. Excellent bookmark cut, making this even more arty and full of impact. I lovee the vibrant colours and the image is so sharp it almost splits the screen. Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful day
dkmurphys (36737) 2012-09-04 2:26
Splendid vertical capture, a true artistic detail in high quality. Well done, have a lovely day.

saxo042 (31794) 2012-09-04 8:02
A very fine and innovative composition! A good observation and a very artful and creative picture.
macjake (39207) 2012-09-04 10:27
you know I like your style of photography, great use of the rule of thirds along the bottom portion.
the consistant blues provide a nice repetitive pattern.
and the clouds are a awesome touch.
kathryn_weir (1742) 2012-09-04 10:39
A truly brilliant shot and perfect choice of format to make the most of your amazing composition- well seen. The rich colours, graphic composition and your chosen POV perfect.
romanaa (7372) 2012-09-05 9:09
I love the minimalist concept here. The strange orange colour of the beach highlights the blue railing.
SnapRJW (18690) 2012-09-08 8:53
Helo Brian -I'm on the road and have a chance for a quick look at TE. Love this one, super crop and a clever, neat interpretation of your subject. Slick work Brian. Warm regards Rosemary
annjackman (13183) 2012-09-09 12:26
I am getting behind again on TE! I had seen this and loved it from the start. The tight vertical framing, symmetry and position of the horizon on the third makes a very fine contemporary shot. The clean lines of the beach huts and the saturated blue colour of the rails contrast with the fluffy clouds. Amazing observation and production - excellent!
Best wishes, Ann
yquem46 (32229) 2012-09-18 10:03
really quite fan of this series of graphical beach huts, colorful, nicely accentuated and composed
Just great !

Almost an abstract picture well enhanced by the bookmark size, full of cold colors except the SAND!!!
