A lone photographer in watercolour.
My book entitled, Looe in Cornwall a photographic tour, is on sale now.
Well, I do know I like this-a lot, it's really fascinating, and beautiful to look at, but I can't work it out! I've got a very literal mind-not very good at the unobvious. So far I've got 3 "layers", some "stitching" and a guy who might be a photographer, or might not be. I'll check back later today when brighter brains than mine have decoded it!

@CElliottUK: :)) Chris, I'll let you resolve this one yourself... it really is a simple shot.
I really like the simplicity of this, if it was a water colour I would definitely hang it in our home. I love the composition of the slice of window and the tiles adding some texture and the shadow of the photographer holding up their point and shoot.

The stitching effect on the left is wonderful in this
very artistic work of art.

@Othersideblue: ha ha :) No it's not me.... but it is a sandy seashore.
A fine composition and one that is provocative. It requires some looking and thinking. Very good!

This is very creative. I must look at it some more.

My brain obviously works better at night than in the morning. I've now got it. The left is a house gable with window, there's a guy on a beech, and it's been given a watercolour treatment.
Haha, rarly do I put in that amount of (limited) brainpower on anything. Well done for a great shot that got me to rub my remaining 2 braincells together!

@CElliottUK: Yesss..! There are no layers or stitching Chris. The shot was taken from quite some distance and high up looking between some houses. I cropped the image tightly which pulled the beach in. If you could see the bigger picture it would become clear.
Great shot - and a big thank you to Chris for figuring it out! I needed the help as well - it's a really neat shot though! Love the tiny body shadow - and pov.

Cool shot and processing.

What a unique and compelling atmosphere!!! I'm captivated and intrigued! Original and remarkable work Mike!

Interesting crop, good choice of post-processing and a weird result that rises so many questions...BUT, an unique idea!

Like the composition and the watercolr effect in sepia tones who suits very well to the subject.
