There are many theories on how deal deal with a flat grey day when taking pictures... my offering is to make it greyer!

To set the scene... Its about 7.20 in the morning, the temperature is 1.5 C (34.7F for our continental friends), cloud cover is 100% and to cap it all its started to snow. What better place to be than stood on Southsea beach taking 16 minute exposure!

This is a tight crop as with the incoming tide I couldn't get close to the markers, the long horizontal shadow in the foreground, is actually a big rock which gradually disappeared into the sea during the shot.

Just for reference purposes, V2 the colour version, V3 is the original and V4 is a shorter exposure that shows the foreground rock.

Thanks for looking

Very clever, Andy, you've certainly made it look a very depressing and cold day Smile. I give my vote to V.4 because I like to see a little of the shore in the foreground. Carol
PS: I think you should have donned waders and got closer to the marker Wink

You could have point about going greyer - the blues don't appeal at all.
V4 is so soft and I like the peebbles in f/g.
Must get out somewhere to practise with your instructions.

No Jason, I played Bubble witch Saga on my phone, whilst praying that the incoming tide would hold off long enough! Thanks for the comments!

v3 for me, i like the split of tones and sheer size, also a touch of f/g creeping in adds the interest.
nice one.
