Full -Tilt

Yes, I know what you're thinking, but DON'T say the 'C' word! There are similarities: I'm Dave & this is Blackpool but that's it!! :-)

Took this today while mooching about on the beach with Alistair Parker. We put the World to rights, had a moan about this & that & generally enjoyed a pleasant afternoon...and also managed some photography!

thats would i was thinking...absolutely stunning! i love the clour of the sky. did you do any post processing to achieve the rich blue?
Dave Carrington: The blue is as shot. I converted the shot to a 32-bit image, tweaked the Gamma & added a vignette et voila!

bloody awesome, love this man
Dave Carrington: Hey asiko, glad you like it!
I take my proverbial hat off to you, this is a lovely shot, fantastic composition, I hope the old fella had his OM4 with him? ....
Dave Carrington: Praise indeed, Beachmaster! smile
Yes the OM4 was dusted off & used this day, you'll be happy to hear!
Great sense of esthetism. Graphic, and luminous. Lively picture.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Florence: esthetic sounds good to me! smile
Fantastic, looking forward to all those soft focus baby shots and courses that you are going to be running.
Dave Carrington: Me too, along with all that lovely moolah rolling in! smile

So thats what you were doing standing on your head! You have composed it well and the colour is great.

I think Max is being very unfair. What did I say about Shooter, the mans an obsessive!
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Al. I have to say I like the way this one turned out. I said I was going to do a 'Chromasia', did I not? smile

lovely shot and the blackpool c word can be very disconcerting at times.
Dave Carrington: Hi, nev. Good to hear from you again! Glad you like it.

Lovely shot Dave...was the sign in that postition or did you push it to make it more "arty"...grin
Petra
Dave Carrington: I certainly did not...it's just as I found it! How dare you suggest such a thing? smile
Now Alistair says you were trying to do a big C, you say don't say the 'C' word and I haven't a clue what either of you mean! Please explain...

As for this shot, it really works for me. Love the simplicity of it and that parallel shadow to the shoreline.
Dave Carrington: Jose, see my reply to Alistair: this type of shot invariably gets compared with DJN's world famous Blackpool shots! Anyway, I'm glad you like it! smile
