Brighton seafront

Words/Photographs: Tony Eveling

I loved the busyness of this scene, so had to take a photo!
Spot the seagull!

  • A general thanks to everyone for the kind comments!

  • It is always a magical moment …. well seen !

  • La lumière est vraiment tres belle et rehausse les détails de l’architecture et les couleurs du mur et de la balustrade dans cette scene vivante et dynamique

  • The light really emphasises the shape of the steps (or is it a ramp?). Lovely image.

  • A wonderful mixture of interesting architecture, full of human activity, beautiful light and that spot on seagull. What else can you ask from a photograph. Congratulations!

  • A crowded but fascinating scene! The isolated seagull and the red of the lamp seem balanced the mix by popping out like small studs!

  • Sometimes, it’s breaking the rules that makes for a truly interesting and unique image, and I think you have done that so well here, Tony.
    I really love this one.

  • Superb perspective and light Tony. A really great shot.

  • I don’t know much about composition or other photography rules, but I do know that I love this picture! If you don’t mind my asking, how’d you get started, and is there anything you did that helped reduce the learning curve?

  • This photo contradicts the accepted rules of composition (being too busy) but I agree with you: impossible not to photograph it. This sea front is so interesting. (The seagull is on top of the lamp post to the left)

    • Thanks! Yes, I loved the busyness, which is really two layers, firstly the fronts of the elegant buildings looking out to sea, and then the seafront itself with the cafes and people milling around, all watched over by the seagulls looking for a cheap and easy meal!.
