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.

So, for the time being, I've not categorised this image and will assign it to either my photolog or gallery category after I hear what you think of it.
