I have previously posted a shot of this poster. However you have come up with a much more creative shot by including the beach. The old lifeboat shed looks as though it is hovering in space. Great colour to boot. Nice one Dave.
Dave Carrington: Glad you like it, fabled Trollhunter!
STANDING OVATION

Suby
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Suby.
This is one striking image! Sorry, not to be original with my comments, but it is. I love the composition, and that colour is just delicious. (:o)
Dave Carrington: Thank you, Ros. I'm glad you like it!
Great colours. I could imagine this as an album cover.
Dave Carrington: I agree, Paul. I guess it has that 70's 'Hipgnosis' vibe...smile
Very compelling composition. The diagonal light in the background is a very nice touch.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Martin!
There is something about the contrast between the landscape sea and light and the poster that gives this image a slightly foreboding, slightly uncanny feel. Cracking image Dave.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Jose. I took this last January in a watery, winter sun: the ice-lolly ad seemed very out of place. Mind you, it does at the moment too!! smile
DC this is a wonderfully evocative shot , and for me at least resembles a drive in movie site in the good old US of A, love the pp.....
Dave Carrington: Thank you, Shootist!
Dont want ruin the magic but can you reveal your PP fairy dust on this one? It reminds of those little 4x4 polaroids that my mum keeps in a shoebox and that have gone all yellow and show a little kid with a pudding bowl haircut and nylon t shirt.
Beautifully evocative.
Dave Carrington: No problem, Eddy: shot with a polarizer in wonderful light initially, levels, curves adjusted. Gaussian blur applied to blue channel to sort some noise, perspective tweaked & a slight crop: phew...

An age ago when I had normal coloured hair and apparently quite cute looking , I was taken to Woolworths just off the South Prom near where Maccydees is now, to purchase some Sunnysan sandals and as I was such a good little soldier my prize was a hat with a yellow sun visor stitched in to it, for one whole blistering summer South Shore prom looked like this to me and even though age has dimmed my memory(ies) this has made it all surge back, now if I could only forget about all that Beechnut chewing gum I used to pinch from Woolies sweetie counter.........hey almost forgot, top shot!!
Dave Carrington: Ha...so thats why had to flee these fragrant shores: a criminal past driven by a dangerous desire for Beechnut! I'll bet the wanted posters still hang in some secluded corner of central prom. I reckon Digi has pictorial evidence in his extensive archive of Rotting Blackpool images!
This is fabulous, almost surreal like a De Chirico
Dave Carrington: Hi, Chad. De chirico's work has a disturbing & surreal ambiguity that I find interesting. I'm flattered by the comparison!
Lovely atmospheric shot. All the best, Dave.
Dave Carrington: Thanks, Dave!
