This is great. Absolutely beautifully composed and converted to b/w. The big white border really works nicely too.

@Sharon: Thanks Sharon....The white border that I now use on all my photos was a tip from a very talented graphic designer called John Leech

treehouse productions from whale beach, Australia

yeah this one's cool. the border does actually help the space & tones of the shot. good one.

@treehouse productions: Thanks very much.....this is a photo from the north side of Morecambe Bay. It's a very dramatic place and I've been lucky to get the chance to take so many photos in the area.

Spectacular and I'm glad you went with greyscale. The eye is free to explore every detail.

@sherri: Thanks Sherri....every now and then I feel the urge to do some B&W seems to simplify things photographically.

Ana Lúcia from Leiria, Portugal

B/W is a right choice in this shot. Well done!

@Ana Lúcia: Thanks Ana...I've enjoyed looking at your own B&W photos too .

The B&W enhances the contrast and mood very effectively. The figures in the distance add the necessary scale. Great shot.

This is what I call a photographer's photograph. Love the hidden symmetry in here, the division of the frame, your understanding of presentation within that mount. Classy stuff.

Beautiful shot, Ian! I love the ripples in the sand. I looked at your portfolio and it was very interesting to see how you slowly were finding what is yours, your style. And your latest photos define this style very much.
And you execute it rather splendid. (I wonder when it`s gonna happen to me? :-) ).

Hi Ian,

I like this one and the duck pic, but this one is an emotional stirring.

It is about time to take pictures with my 10-20mm:p
