About the Image(s)

Background: With the Nor’easter due in a few hours, I drove down to Hull MA, which is about thirty minutes from my house. It is also the closest stretch of unprotected open ocean to me. It was a few hours before the storm hit in force, but the waves were well on their way to getting angry and the sky was ominous. I like how the pathway leads my eye, but I am disappointed with the clarity of the waves.

Great capture of the leading lines to the ocean. You did a super job of processing to bring out the colors. Wish there had been someone standing at the edge of the waters, looking out over the sea, but that imaginary person wasn't there! Anyway, wonderful shot of the stormy seas and threatening clouds. The lack of clarity of the waves wasn't a factor for me. I enjoyed looking at this.   Posted: 02/04/2021 09:54:20

I think you did a good job of capturing and processing the building turmoil. For me, the ragged fences on either side of the fairly straight path set this image apart.

The only thing distracting me is the bird or dust spot up toward the the upper left corner.   Posted: 02/05/2021 22:38:27

Thank you. It was a bird. I totally missed it. It is now gone. I appreciate your suggestions.   Posted: 02/06/2021 11:16:36

I like the overall color tone. It's good to bring up the light at the water and beach as if a beam of light shining on them. Love it.   Posted: 02/10/2021 14:08:45
