hop scotch by sassaputzin hop scotch by sassaputzin
i noticed the way these stones lead into the horizon and the two stones out at sea worked well to balance the composition with of course the added greenery.
Shot on the north devon coastline.

Nice erosion and smoothing on the rocks, have to thank mother nature for that I suppose...
Combination of the green and subtle sunset colours is what draws around the image.
Like the geology, where was it, Hartland way?

Lovely shot mate, the colours and textures are wonderful.
I was reading the comments between you and Alex below, but to be honest stopped half way through because it just made me feel bad that I don't spend half as much time thinking about composition as I probably should :-(
So who was right in the end? You or Alex?

Careful Steve, this is a family website and there are kids here. I think it better that you avoid being fucking profane.

It's pretty. I like the lighting and the colors, but I think it's ...too sharp? Like nature pictures should be softer.

I exactly disagree... I think the sharpness here makes the shot. Especially that intense green surrounded by all the darker more muted colors.

Lovely contrasting colours, and light, but I'm sort of with Alex on the compo as a whole.

Whilst you've obviously thought about the composition, it doesnt really work for me. The line of rocks seems to run more or less stright up the middle of the picture, which feels quite static. Which is more, the foreground rock is a little to close to the bottom of the frame. The colours are great, the location is nice and you do ahve something quite different, but for me it's a 'what might have been' type image

well we all see things differently and i have to say i disagree...you are right a lot of thought went into the composition. if you look closer you will see the rocks lead up the middle and towards the top of the image bare to the right (disregarding the larger stone in the middle right) your eye being stopped by the rocks at the top righthand side, then the row of rocks lead to the left...making a backwards '7' throughout the composition, the rocks at the top are crucial to the composition and obviously any more adjustment at the bottom of the composition to make the lower rocks lead from either side more throws out the top exponentially, the two outside rocks act as anchors balancing the top of the composition....and to me look like horns....
also there a six foreground rocks not one and i belive they are balanced in relation to the rest of the image well....but i see your point....

THe problem is the link between the foreground rocks and the more distant ones is tenuous at best. You can see it if you think 'how has steve tried to compose this' but I dont think it has the natural visual flow that people would usually associate with composition. Each to their own though :P
