A threatening January sky out over the sea and over the small boats pulled up onto the shingle beach outside the Hove Deep Sea Anglers club on the seafront in Hove, East Sussex, England.

I like this dark dramatic sky over the boats. Well captured moment, interesting scene.
Have a nice day.

The mood engendered by the low January light is really captivating. Excellent composition and cropping that focuses the attention on the group of boats. Perfect exposure management with lovely soft light and colours. Excellent photography indeed.

Hello Brian ,
The poor lght provides a trong atmosphere to the scene . These wooden little boats and the sky are superb .

Hi Brian. I find the mood in this image heroic, or is it stoic, as these boats stand proudly against the elements, the saltwater, the wind, the rain.Of course a coat of fresh paint does help.Regards. Klaudio.

a romantic one. I can feel the loneliness here. Great composition with the boats on FG, and a nice assistance of dramatic sky at top. Excellent one.

It is the mood of coming storm, threatening atmosphere, beautiful composition, very well captured

questa più che una foto è uno splendido quadro da appendere alla parete di casa.
L'apparente disordine con il quale queste barche sono disposte nella spiaggia si unisce ad un cielo di grande effetto, quello "giusto" per questa bella foto per creare una composizione di grande effetto dominata da eccellente nitidezza e splendidi colori.
Una delle foto che più mi hanno colpito della tua lunga serie di successi.
Ciao e buona serata

Unfortunately, the left foreground isn't also strewn with pebbles.
The set of wooden boats on that pebble beach is a very beautiful sight.
The sea looks calm under that overcast sky that is adding a high dramatic effect to the picture.
Best regards, Paul

Une très jolie composition dans laquelle tu as exploité de belle façon la lumière particulière du moment et le ciel intéressant.

Impeccable sharpness and nice warm vs cold color contrasts between the red and cyan. Superb repetition of the boats and the upward angle of the back row adds interest. I might have selected 'highlights' in photoshop, hit 'invert', then applied auto contrast to give it more punch, but that would give an entirely different mood. Tfs!

very nice indeed.
gotta love boats! they make for amazing subjects don't they!
I also like the atmosphere that you conveyed so well, and of course you brought along your colorful pebbles haha
straight horizon lines, charming boats, and lots of moody atmosphere, well done

Hi Brian, Nice boat resting on the cloudy day. dramatic sky but my favorite are always the pebbles. Hove - I learned English there more than thirty years ago..

This is atmospheric and beautifully managed. The soft light and subdues colours work together to convey a still, quiet beauty. A lovely composition under a superb sky. Nice job Brian. Warm regards Rosemary
