Another from my visit to the beach at Uphill in Somerset.

Comments welcome.

Very nice image. Love the composition of this one, especially how the poles lead your eye to the sun rays; looks like a long exposure image with the use of a filter. Very well done!

We are quite literally forced to follow the strong leading line here which is good.
I do find the heavy darkness of the poles a little out of place with the tonal range of the rest of the photo. I wonder if more contrast or darkening the midtones would help. Perhaps this can be best achieved in the b&W conversion process. Still a nice photo though.

I would like to see this with a slight tinge of colour...

Nice shot Taffy, the classic photo of receding groynes (ugh, sounds like some kind of disease). I think MA may have a point about the dark posts. I would also clone out that dark smudge in the top left corner. In fact a crop would accomplish the same thing, and might tighten up the composition. Perhaps 10% off the left and bottom?
