many thanks for your comment. This photo was hanging around on my hard drive for a few years already. I found the raw version OK-ish - to good to delete but lacked an idea what do about it. While scanning through my repository recently, it caught my eye can and I tried the idea to push tonality into high key.

many thanks for comment and thoughts - good point about the balance (the composition is influenced by Harald Mante, a German photographer who is carefully connecting his compositions to frame edges and corners - almost like hanging the elements on a clothesline... - which can result in too rigid geometries).

Not sure, when I'll travel to the seaside next time - but, in any case I'll take both your advice with me.

An interesting and original idea, Wolfgang. I think there's still a bit of room for refinement in the technique, though. Having said that, I'd like to see if you can further develop this direction.
