photoblog image Ilfracombe Shore

Ilfracombe Shore

After the more serious posting of yesterday, Armistice Day, something a bit more light hearted, and tongue in cheek today.

I have featured quite a few pictures taken during my visit to Ilfracombe a few years ago and this is another of the rocks out in the water.

You will either love or hate the surround, I done it a while ago just as a "messing about" excercise.

The frame looks better on a white background, Brian, but still fails to enhance this nice shot of the wet rocks.

I guess that means I am in the "It Suks" camp. [grin]
Brian Walbey: I just wanted to prove, after all the recent nice comments, that I can do "grunge" as well Ray and its worked.

Nice picture - the surround on the other hand...
Brian Walbey: I was going for the "grunge" effect today Chris, and its worked.

Wont say l hate it but it doesn't do anything to enhance the image Brian. You know if it has rocks in it l am going to like it though
Brian Walbey: My feelings entirely Tony smile
I like the pic of the sea and the rocks. The frame sort of gives the impression of looking through a window at them, but a soft caravan type of window. All in all, I think I like it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila, you are one of a select few today.
I love this photo and the way you have framed it, it would be good to have this as your window to ponder out of and grace the day.
Brian Walbey: Another one who likes my ftame Cheryl, you are in exclusive company today, in other words, hardly anyone else does like it.

Well, I'm sure you know which camp I'm in! It has such a good natural frame already, so the kitschy frame you have place around it totally detracts from it. Ban all frames I say!
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: I am highly delighted with today's reaction Ingrid. I have had so many lovely comments just lately that I thought I would post some "grunge" for a change smile
Great shot but not too keen on the framing Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, hardly anybody, including me, likes rthe framing.
Keep Messing About, Its the only way to Learn. Love the Picture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks martin, I won't do too many like this, just for fun today.

I like the frame
Brian Walbey: You are one of an exclusive club today then vintage, thanks.
A wonderful perspective Brian. The framing is a bit special to my taste!
Brian Walbey: There's two camps today Richard, those who like the frame and those who don't, I'm in the latter smile
Once again there's for and against for this Brian..I'm not too sure about it..so I'll say..a good fun picture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron, that's called "fence sitting" smile
beautiful shot
I am not a huge frame fan, but I see the benefits here to focus the viewer
Cheers
Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks very mich Rob.
I like the inside.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, I notice you haven't mentioned the "grungy" frame, very diplomatic smile
I like the natural frame better, but still a good shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Linda, I don't like the frame at all to be honest smile
beautiful...calming...superb shot!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Kavita.
I really really really HATE .... yuck the diabolical crass nurdy frame. Ha !

Why use one word when a dozen will do. Ha ha! ...

Brian , you put the super Ilfracombe sea and rocks in a hard place.

(big grin) richard
Brian Walbey: At least this grungy old presentation had the effect I was after Richard, I've had so many nice comments just lately that I felt something untoward was required after the serious postings of yesterday.
The rocks and the sea are naturally framed on the side and bottom Brian, and many times you just can't improve on nature, most of the time at any rate. good try though.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Les, it was just for fun and, yippee, I got lots of iffy comments for my grungy frame.
Who am I to criticise frames?tongue
Brian Walbey: Exactly, but feel free Bill, this was just for fun after the serious postings of yesterday.

Superb. Reflets, light and colors are really beautiful. Have a nice day. Antoine
Brian Walbey: Thanks Antoine. It was the "naff" frame that most people found a bit irritating.
