That's an interesting edifice bringing a striking colour combination as well

Do you think a little cropping off from the top allowing the edge of the pier pointing at the right top corner (roughly if not exactly) could be even nicer? : )

Yes. I agree. Also 2 degrees anticlockwise rotation straightens the verticals. Then it suddenly becomes more apparent that, surprisingly, the ramp doesn't point in the same direction as the gangway. Is there a rock in the way of the straight launch, or was it an accident, I wonder?

I love Tenby as a result of nice holidays years ago, so I looked with interest & yearning to be there, then tried trimming & rotating the image for fun. Apologies for that, Alex. I love your pictures, which I envy, and many of which trigger memories of S.Wales, where I was brought up.

On the beach just round the headland there's a giant rock, with caverns where I and my children scrambled up inside to peer out of a hole high up on its face. We sat on the slipway near it and had fish & chips stolen from our hands by a very determined seagull.

Thanks again Alan, the old Gulls are a pest.I wonder if its off line because of the way I cropped it.

I don't think so! Try laying a ruler along the straight lines. I think the building & the ramp are in line, but the building's askew on its platform! There's perhaps some interesting engineering or history there.I bet the lifeboat's bigger and launches faster than it used to.

Lovely! What a bay!

For amusement, I have taken another liberty, and straightened this one as well.I hadto clone a newbit of clifftop,in order not to lose the field of oilseed rape. I hope you and the National Park Authority don't mind too much!

I hope we'll get out with our cameras soon, if & when it stops raining and we get some glorious weather as you had on that day.I delivered my son to the Clwyd Range this morning fora Duke of Edinburgh's Award expedition, and they had continuous heavy rain all day.
