Fantastic composition.. One of the best..! Greatings from Italy Skyhunter..January Contest and if you want tell me what you think about this Playing...Lonely..!

Mark Highton Ridley on February 20, 2009

Thanks Skyhunter - I think you'll agree that in bw, paying attention to composition is vital.

Ooh-aah-colour sunsets can get away with poor comp because of the emphasis on colour but in bw all you've got is light/line, texture/tone, pattern/perspective and structure/abstraction (i.e. comp) is all you've got to play with.

Get any of them wrong, and there's no pretty colours to distract the viewer.

Sorry, I went off on one there, didn't I? :) Cheers, Mark

Hi LM, thanks for saying Hi :) Why not pop over and join in? Skyhunter did. While I'm having the trouble I mentioned to you on Panoramio, at least my website doesn't give me grief! All my latest stuff is there.. Maybe catch up with you sometime, us 'foreign' janners should stick together! --Mark
