I took this on a slide a long time ago and liked the position of the couple within the curve of the tyre tracks on the sand. Unfortunately, like some of my other pictures, nobody else in my club likes it so I have never used it for anything.

I like this, too. The couple are perfectly positioned to balance the photograph, and the curve is very beautiful. I assume you are talking about a photography club? I am getting the impression that photography clubs can be very fixed in their way. I am sure there will be some exceptions, but most seem to suffocate creativity by advocating formulaic and strict criteria. For heavens sake, don`t be discouraged - this is a great shot. (:o)
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your encouraging comments Roz. Yes I am talking about a Camera Club. At least I like all the pictures I take to the club even if sometimes others don't and that is what matters. However SC gives the opportunity to have views expressed from such a wide circle of people which is good.
I think it's the content and the imaginative shooting angle that are the fundemental elements in a photograph. Stick with what you like doing and remain flexible in your thinking and in your creative strengths. This is a fine shot with a good idea backing it up. richard
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I just liked this arrangement when I saw it and it came out as I imagined which is very pleasing to one's ego.

LOL.. forget the others in your club; what do they know? smile This really works well with the shape and the two walkers moving into the centre. Good work!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I'm glad someone else sees what I saw at the time.
I'll keep it short: vetry good picture, find another club... ;-)
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frank, glad you liked the picture.
I like it. Funny I started back with my camera club after many years absence, and I refuse flatly to enter competitions! There are some good photographers but they seem to think that you have to go all the way to Rannoch Moor to take a landscape or find a dry stone wall in Derbyshire. Never see a picture of Droitwich.
Brian Walbey: I must admit I agree with you about landscapes Bill, all the magazine articles on the subject go to places like you have mentioned rather than on the doorstep.
I agree with everyone else who are all saying the same thing!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jose.
