Sunrise, South Shields Harbour


I took this shot from Tynemouth, the view takes in the South Pier and the smaller Groyne Pier, South Shields at sunrise (about 5.00 a.m.) I originally shot this in colour and converted it to black and white in Photoshop, I’m not sure which version I like best.

Should I publish the colour version tomorrow and let readers decide which looks best?

  3. This is so evocative, just right,has the vibes that are associated rightly or wrongly with things English.

  5. I like this shot. However, having started with black and white in 1953 and being there when Kodak introduced their first color that we all thought would fade out in a year or too, I have come to appreciate color. I wish some of the hundreds of photos Ihad to take in black and white were taken in color but that is life. Now with digital cameras and lenses, I like color even more.

    Surprise, surprise, surprise. It’s me!

  8. I love so much this shot. In particular I love those clouds that in one with ground and horizon give three dimension to the shot. Really impressive the B&W
