weather beaten

Posted by theSubtleSensor (Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom) on 13 February 2008 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

I am away from home until the 17th and may not get to update so I'm planning ahead. I'm going to put up a couple of different 'mini-series'. I apologise if I don't get round to rsponding to comments while I am away. I will do my best.

This is a set of pictures I took in the summer on the Holy Island of Lindesfarne. I went up there for the sunset (they have a West coast I can reach easier than Britains west coast!) but I also got some beautiful shots throughout the course of the summers day.

I love the texture and the unique patters a nice bit of peeling paint can offer and this made a nice subject for destauration.

I'm not really postimg much on here these days. I only intend to post my personal projects or experimental work as this is what I need feedback on - so please do leave a constructive comment or a star rating.

These days I post more regularly to the blog on my website, so skate on over there to see what I've been up to recently: Freelance Photographer in Newcastle upon Tyne | Subtle Sensor Photography

You can find my fashion and portrait work here: Subtle Sensor on Model Mayhem

Thanks for dropping by!

Interesting perspective, but I think the boat to the left takes away from the shot a bit! Not alot you can do about that though!

I love weathered wood. It makes for very interesting photography.

A great example of entropy.

I really love the raw tones from the peeling paint and the perspective/angle is just great!

Perfect title on this one. Great shot, but I also agree with DaveB and pLusOne, dropping the boat to the left would have made it even better.

Hi everyone,

Thanks for your comments. I'm going to take a stand on this one though. I really like that boat in the corner. I think it adds context and lends the impression of being in a boat graveyard....

Maybe its just me though. Oh well!
