Taken in February last year, but processed today, this was captured at Boiler beach, Whitsand Bay in Cornwall. The rock formations revealed at various tides make this an ideal spot for seascape photography, and fortunately for me, is only a few minutes drive away from my home.

It's a spectacular and clever comp of lead in lines and receding geometry for lots of depth; clearly yours from the thumbnail. The sea is magnificent but I'm going to be controversial, stick my neck out, and suggest the sky seems a little over-saturated to me and might balance the sea better if it were toned down a little. However, I expect to be in the minority with this view!

Shows you've got a good eye Al - although I'm happy with the way it is, I should let you know that I did in fact desaturate the blues in the lower two thirds of the shot to stop the "neon" look that water can sometimes end up looking if one is not careful with the processing. I'm sure you're not alone with you observation though, and I appreciate the considered critique.

All the best
Paul
