In a similar vein to the previous image, the centre of attention here is a vividly colourful detail on the ground. The compositional arrangement in this case is not quite so tight in that more distant parts of the view (which is the beach at Littlehampton) are also included. In point of fact, the timing of the shutter release was more important in this case due to the movement of the figures in that distant part of the image. Particularly the girl on the bike.

This judgement though only happened after the careful positioning of the main subject - the weathered yellow cross that once marked the site of a surveying point - at exactly the "right" part of the viewfinder.
