Great tyro 2012-06-18 11:14

Hello Bev,

An interesting note about "hucka" but not for me the first thing that comes to mind when I see this winch. For me, I'd dream of tackling it with a tin of releasing oil, some grease, a wire brush and some oversize spanners to see if I could get it into working order!

But this winch certainly makes a statement - whatever that may be - in front of that rather interesting Art Deco building behind - is that a hotel?

Lovely lighting and colours, excellent depth of field, spot-on exposure and excellent detail and sharpness.

And, like yourself, I think this picture has more impact than your workshop one, fine though it also is.


Kind Regards,

Thanks for the kind critique.
Maybe the hucka is just a woman thing!!!

You're right about the building; it is very art deco.
It certainly wouldn't look out of place in a Poirot investigation.

Although it looks very spacious, I don't recall it being a hotel; I'm pretty sure that it was just a private residence. From this side, it looks fine because of the curves;from the beach side it looks like a monstrosity, very sttraight sided and angular, like a huge packing case.

Bev :-)
