I'm not sure about this shot, mostly, I think, because I've run out of stuff to put up. And, as often happens, this changes the way I look at a given image; i.e. if I've got no choice I tend to view an image less favourably.
Anyway, that aside, what I like about this shot is a) the composition, and b) that it typifies one aspect of the British seaside – our weather is normally so poor that people will go to great lengths to get a tan, even if this does mean they end up looking like a part-cooked lobster. What I'm not so sure about is the lighting (which seems rather flat), and the overall tone of the image. I did try a colourised version, but it didn't seem to work all that well.
