A heavy mono conversion from Southampton Waters looking into the distance you can see the lit radio masts and the lights of cowes.

I like it....but.... I think, for me, the foreground is a little too dark, the sky is fantastic but it needs something to be in contrast with and the fg is too similar to it. Also, the lit masts are too small to add to the image and just look like marks on the image.

Sorry to sound negative and I know its just nit-picking really but this is overall a really good image with lots of atmosphere and I really like it.

Cheers

Andy

Only 2 secs, Mark, fastest speed you've used for a long time!! Dark and foreboding, and the line of lights shine out nicely.

Fantastic Mark - makes a real impact.
The sky is wonderful for mono.
Many people have to work an image to get a sky like yours.
The line of light sky low on right is just enough to give contrast.

A very moody image Mark created by that sky. Love the lights on the horizon on the IoW.

I agree with Fefe -- great comp.
The skies have a very threatening look -- nice processing job.
