This photo was taken in Bethany Beach, Delaware as part of a project to shoot the houses of Bethany Beach for my website. This photo is intended to reflect color contrast, which is an assigned subject for the Delaware Photographic Society monthly competition. The photo was captured late morning September 20 with a Nikon J5, ISO 400, f6.3.

I recall many visits to Bethany Beach in past years as our favorite Eastern Shore family location. You are engaged in a great project. Thanks for showing this.
One suggestion. Since your are formally documenting small buildings, I suggest you remove most, but not quite all, of the vertical perspective. I used the "skew" adjustment in PS. What do you think?   Posted: 11/13/2020 11:53:43

I like your image, contrasting shapes and sizes as well as my favorite colors. Did you amp up the color of the chairs? I like Stephen's adjustment. A member of our club had a red chair which he transported to various location either in his car or by inserting it into various scenes using PS. He produced a book of 100 images.   Posted: 11/15/2020 12:45:26

I like what Stephen did to this image, but I think the chairs are a little oversaturated.

Peter, there are lots of interesting textures and shapes in this image: the shingles, window frames. railing along the eaves. The 'character' of these elements speak to the charm of older seaside buildings as contrasted with the metallic brightly painted more modern chairs. Having lived in New England and the Pacific NW, I prefer the antiquity to the modern. I like this image as it really gives me a sense of place and good memories.   Posted: 11/20/2020 18:34:59

The colors and contrast of the photo are very nice. I like Stephen's adjustment also. I agree with Howard that the chairs seems to be little oversaturated. Very nice picture.   Posted: 11/28/2020 23:43:57
