Thank you. Its hard to believe this is December 12th 2020, a Saturday on Bondi in 2020. I liked this one in particular because i havent taken any photos that document the pandemic since it began in Australia. I also took this to experiment with photojournalism. In regards to the image, Monotone was the limitation in camera due to black and white film being loaded. Ive checked my main 30MP scan and it is lacking in sharpness not due to JPEG compressions to suit upload, i do have this one selected for a rescan for print media. ill experiment with graduated filters and vignette's in software to see how that improves upon it.

An historical p j shot to capture this beach when it is so underpopulated. I think it is a good choice to do it in monotone but I would have placed a vignette round it or at least a graduated filter from the bottom up to "anchor" or "ground it" as there are pale areas on the edges. It is not particularly sharp which might add more impact too but fascinating to see it with so few tourists.
