A receding high tide on the shingle and sandy beach at Shoreham-by-sea, in West Sussex, England. The beach here starts quite steeply, before shelving and the tall groynes stand over smaller ones that can be seen disappearing out to sea.

you have made good use of the ND filter to accentuate the movement of the receding tide in a well considered composition.
I like the position of the split groyne that breaks the skyline right on a third.
The colours are gorgeous and of course it`s pin sharp.
Have a great weekend

un'altra bella foto della serie relativa alla costa del Sussex che non finisce mai di incantare con gli splendidi colori dei ciottoli e questi particolari pontili che si perdono nelle acque.
Anche in questa hai sfruttato a dovere il tempo di posa per creare un effetto particolare all'acqua mentre taglio, composizione e colore sono sempre al massimo.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

This image talks about a work well planified, studied, the play of lines, DOF and compositiona are very fine, good execution and colours indeed...
Have a nice day...

Superb demonstration of the art of the long exposure, something I have never been able to master. I like very much the point of view with the line of groynes creating excellent depth; also the layering effect with the changes in tone. Very good light and colours; wonderful clarity. Have a great weekend.

hi Brian, love the composition you did. Very good one. The use of diagonal is superb. Beautiful colours and perfect light. A very well composed frame. Tfs.

Hello Brian - The feeling of movement is strong in this composition; the pull of the tide and the slight diagonal direction of the groynes plus your vertical framing all make for a dynamic shot. Well managed in all respects. Have a good weekend. Rosemary
PS I wonder how this would look in B&W?

Yes long time exposed shots have its own fantastic climate. Beautiful colours and effect of "milk water" is amazing.
Have a nice weekend

Another beautiful composition with diagonal lines, eye catching colors and nice effect of softwater, compliments

Love the colours and the pov on this one. Lovely soft tones all the way.

Très jolie, tant pour sa composition, les couleurs et le format choisi, sublime réalisation

fine photo my friend.
first of all, great to see the horizon line at the 1/3 top area and its 100% straight too (other than the ends due to the lens curvature).
another aspect i like to see is the first wooden post is above the Horizon line, if it were below the horizon line it wouldn't have that 3D type of look to it.
love the water motion/blur and the colorful pebbles.
success all the way

I like it best when an image sparks emotion or sensation, and this one has a wonderful feeling of being pulled towards the sea. From the Office of Redundancy: you've nailed it again on the perspective! What a terrific lead in...which also enhances that impression of being pulled away. Craig beat me to it, but the foreground groyne resting just above the horizon is perfectly placed. To top it off, I'm loving the the soft shades of blues and greens...they are the "cherry on top" compliment of contrast to the red pebbles. A very dynamic shot, this is another beauty! Enjoy your Sunday. Take care amigo. :)

Tu maîtrises parfaitement l'utilisation du filtre ND pour obtenir ce bel effet mousseux sur la mer. La composition verticale est très bonne et j'aime beaucoup les "bandes de couleurs" différentes.

This one from your series is really amazing due to the charming and eye catching palette of intensive colors. Beautifully observed and composed scene. Very well done. TFS.
Royaldevon (31353) 2013-08-18 1:24
A very minimalistic shot yet everything perfectly placed for best effect. The strong colours are in the f/g, whilst the groyn and its shadow converge to lead to the eternity of the sea. Almost mystical!
Have a lovely Sunday,

again you show us how to use long exposure time to achieve such delightful visual effect at day.
The water looks really smooth,but on the other hand it gives excellent feel of movement.And of course the FG with so lovely and shining pebbles and the groyne leading our eyes far in the distance.
Beautiful and creative composition!

I love looking at Shoreham through your eyes. My childhood memories are of the place not being particularly interesting with a power station as a bit of an eyesore. I love your romantic seascapes showing just how beautiful the area can be Gorgeous slow shutter speed work with a strong diagonal and lovely colours.
Kind Regards, Ann

Wow! How did my eye not catch this one the first time around.
A unique composition with a low shutter speed. I like how the foreground
merges itself into a faded and obscure background. The bright orange of the
pebbles further enhances the image.

marvelous compo using simple elements and creating a masterpiece. I liked the lines and the texture of the foreground. nice job. congratulations.
