Hebridean Abstracts

Now I love this image, but sure as hell the judges in the photo club don’t! Too difficult, too abstract, just too weird. Even with a literal title – ‘Wave On Beach’ – it’s still doomed to failure. Shot down in flames, twice. So it’s not a photo club photo, but heck, I still like it…

Maybe this one would work better… Bit of foreground interest, lead in line, wave breaking in mid distance and a moody sky in the far background. More obvious certainly, but it’s an anyone shot, it’s ok, but just ok.

This is more like it. A real weird one! Panning to the right during a 2 sec exposure whilst the wave breaks to the left. I’ve not even considered this as a competition image. It would get blasted straight away for being ‘blurry’….

Maybe I should compromise. How about this? Rock on beach – a point to focus on, still a bit abstract-y with the black peat showing through the tawny sand. Bit of a curve to take the eye through the pic… On second thoughts, this is still to way-out for a 30 sec analysis in a club competition. It stays on the blog site. Hope you enjoy it!
