Tangled Nets in B&W by Karen  Betts

Taken at Southwold Harbour in Suffolk Uk, 20.2.10 at midday

Wonderful collection of tangeld nets and ropes lying around as you walk along the Harbour heading for your freshly caught fish and chip lunch.

These are very pale to cream in colour and I thought i would have a play around in b&W and Tonal contrast to see what happenedas I liked the texture of the netts and ropes together, in the end I quiet liked what i saw so will up loaded it for a little while.

Comments and thoughts welcome I am still learning about B&W and use a Efex colour to convert to B&W
