very nice Ellie, great one
find this a wee bit bold or even rude among your archive E? maybe just me?..

Rob.
EJWilkins: Yes, I suppose. It's bright and 'technical', so is a bit different from my usual stuff. But, it was there, I saw it and took a picture .. now you've seen the picture. wink
This is a bit of a departure from your usual material smile. I like the shot and I think it is great that you are exploring new subject matter!
EJWilkins: I wish it was 'new' Martin, I took this one last July. I'm running through archives, it's generally too dark and miserable to do much just now. smile

Crisp clean shot
It might be "just" a compass, but it has such an importance for sailers!
Beautiful composition; it almost feels like you put the robes there on purpose to complete the shot
EJWilkins: It's exactly as I saw it Samira, I thought it looked nice too. If I'd tried to organise/move/alter anything I'd probably have messed things up for the people whose boat it was. wink

This is a departure from your normal post style. The detail in the shot is great. You can actually "feel" the weathering of the compass. Good job.
EJWilkins: Now you've gone all nautical on me, mentioning 'weathering' along with compass. Glad you like it Clint smile
avec ça, on ne perds pas le nord!
EJWilkins: C'est vrai, tant que vous vous rappelez quel nombre représente le nord grin

HA! Don't you love it when you can surprise people by showing something they don't expect! smile It's funny but I keep looking at the yellow rope instead of the compass. Maybe I made such things in my past life?

Lovely out-of-the-ordinary capture, Ellie. smile
EJWilkins: Yep! And, you know, I'd never thought about it being 'different' so it's back to my 'usual' stuff again tomorrow. wink Mind you, you never know what might be lurking in my list waiting to be aired. Took this one last July Ginnie.

I don't understand Robert's comment. This is a good composition Ellie. The primary colours work really well.
EJWilkins: I think it's because it's bright and white, not nature/natural or old .. like my usual pictures. Glad you like it Jose. smile
Afraid to be lost ? smile I love compass they are nice and useful tools !! smile

Great composition. First the H-D engine and now a compass - i like your new direction as it produces spectacular pictures.
EJWilkins: New direction? Northwards perhaps? tongue I took this last July Louis, there are a few 'different' things lurking in the depths of my personal archives.

How about a compass rose?
