First of all, thanks for all the great comments on my last four shots – it's encouraged me to think about putting up more mini-series. What I found especially interesting was the wide range of responses, and how people differed in their opinions regarding each of the four shots. Normally the stuff that goes up on chromasia is fairly eclectic so any comments are normally in response to a single shot. With a series of shots the dialogue becomes a bit broader and less fragmentary – I've enjoyed it.

All that I need to do now is actually find the time to shoot them ;-)

As for this shot: I went out for a while this afternoon, but left it a bit too late. By the time I got to the sea-front I only had about ten minutes of decent light before the setting sun dropped behind some low clouds so I didn't really get any of the shots I went out for. And I was going to say something negative about this shot but I received yet another email today telling me that it's really irritating for me to say "this shot is crap" then receive various comments saying "oh no it's not". So I'll shut up instead ;-)

More seriously: and I've said this before, I'm always delighted to receive positive comments on my work – who doesn't like compliments – but I also need some critical input; some way of moving me forward. I wrote a bit about the commenting at chromasia a while ago, which you can read here if you're interested, but it amounts to the fact that I'm more that happy to receive any amount of constructive critique.

Oh, finally: I've been re-coding the secondary categories of some of my entries and adding in some subcategories prior to re-arranging my archives, so if anything doesn't work as expected please let me know.
