Black Country Museum Reflections 1/5

Back on the 4th.September you will recall a group of us met up at the Black Country Museum in the heart of the English Midlands at Dudley where we had a great time together.

 

The village area is built around the Canal Basin and this is a short series of images taken of the reflections looking into the water, which itself is very clear, probably because of the lack of much movement of those narrow boats still in working order.

I like the reflection, Brian, but it cannot compete with that beautiful set of bollards and tiller handle!
Brian Walbey: Yes they are quite photogenic aren't they.
Pretty cool capture Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.
This is a great shot of the reflections Brian... but green handle has given you DOF but sort of stole the show....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Well of course red and green are always going to clash a bit I guess Peter.

I like this very much Brian. Strong foreground and equally positive background with those reflections

Fabulous picture, love the shapes and colours, VERY well seen.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Astrid, I took this just after chatting to you, a touch of your photographic genius must have rubbed off on me.
The rippley reflections are the protagonists for me .

Great image Brian
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Richard.

Good colours and reflection Brian. Pity the handle lines up with the hull/water line of the boat behind.
Brian Walbey: I must admit I didn't notice the handle in that position Mike, it's one of those bits one either likes or doesn't, I'm biased of course, I like the picture anyway, perhaps a judge at my club wouldn't though.

This tiller seems to be imitating a swan Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes they have a lovely shape don't they.
Very nice Brian, I like the way you have framed the reflection with the tiller and the line of the hull.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Frank.

I like the composition with the way that the tiller wraps around the reflection.
Brian Walbey: That it what first caught my eye Alan, and I think it works.

The reflections make a picture within a picture, with a natural frame made by the tiller.
Brian Walbey: That's how I saw it Ingrid, I'm quite pleased with this one.
Nice use of elements Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.
Such clarity, Brian. These swan neck tillers are always tempting subjects. This is a good one.
Brian Walbey: A very good item of subject matter isn't it, thanks Graeme.
