View across the Firth of Clyde from the Ayrshire coast yesterday: Arran and the Holy Isle lie in the mist on the horizon.
{Keen eyes may pick out a slight light 'halo' in the sky along the rock edges.........this is present in the original file, I'm not sure why, and is not a processing artefact}

My thanks to all who supported my last posting, and special thanks to Patrick {JPatrickM} for his User Award which is much appreciated.

Ronnie.

Excellent shot Ronnie. I love the faint suggestion of land on the far side of the Firth.
Patrick.
I can only guess that the halo effect could be a result of the JPEG processing. Did you save a RAW file?

a nice view Ronnie - but it is the 'frame' which is so beautiful - those rocks the wave-- all the ingredients for a splendid seaside shot.
the halo... maybe it is a wee bit of vapour from the wet rock evaporating in the sun

Could be owt, though possibly a metering isue, with the blue sky against the dark rocks.

The abrupt change from dark to light and the "normal" processing that is set in your camera is enough to cause the ghosting Ronnie. It's a fine day to beat the seaside.
