A decent sunset was a treat on Sunday evening after a pleasant afternoon in and around Whitby. The wind didn't drop unfortunately, so a 6 stopper has been used to smooth the water as much as possible, while keeping definition in the clouds. A crystal clear reflection of the Abbey would have been the ideal of course, but then I wouldn't have such a good excuse to go back and try again Smile

Fine sky, which the water has also picked up nicely.

Great photo love the colour in the sky. Great subject I wonder if a little more of the reed in the foreground might have helped the lead into the pic. Would have loved to have seen this large.

Thanks everyone.
Keith thanks for the feedback. I have cropped a little off the bottom and sides here. I would usually prefer more reeds for fg interest, but it was windy and they looked quite scrappy, and I cropped in a bit to make the Abbey a bit larger in the frame - it became quite small with my wide angle lens. Maybe it would look better with the little bit left in at the bottom though. I shall look at the composition again now - thanks for the input.

Steve I didn't know there were filters for comments - weren't using foul language were you? Wink

Nah its the way things work here at work, it filters what we can and cant see, sometimes it stops things going the other way too, I never use foul lingo, you know me better than that sis.
