    I was on a cruise recently and had a day on the ship at sea, so was just hanging around a little when I noticed the paterns of the deck chairs.. I had my GR handy and took some pictures which I converted to B&W when I got home. It is just an exercise in patterns and structures, but I like one or two anyway..:)

    I'm thinking if someone caught you setting up that bottom shot, they'd have thought you were some crazy photographer. Nice set.

    Well, that last one was a bit of trial and error, a tilt screen would have been nice on this occasion..:)

    Nice set of graphic images.

    These really serve to demonstrate the IQ the GR is capable of delivering in the right hands. Good to see there are no adverse effects (moire) from the loss of optical low pass filter.

    Nice set.

    First thing that comes to my mind is that I wouldn't sit in them because they are too close together, lol.

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Wonderful stuff! I also really liked that heavily tilted color deck-chair shot in your thread on the cruise in general...

    Thanks Ray. Yeah I liked the color one as well but felt I should not disturb the B&W series as that was more about shapes and structures and less about color, but I do like the combination of the blue sky and the colors of the ship's deck in that one.

    Not sure, but that one might have worked at least as well in B&W. Maybe worth having two versions of that one...

    Cool shots. I like that one of them actually looks like a big structure you could walk under.
