Last night was the photo club trip to Cromer for fish, chips and photos. I got there and the sun was looking like it was going to be awesome so in my excitment I skipped the chips and headed for a spot to set up! I got loads of shots and thought I would edit and share some. This is my first attempt, sadly I had to crop it down a fair bit as I hadn't composed it to my liking but I got there in the end.

In processing I boosted the beautiful colours and then that was it. So anyway I shall leave it in your very capable hands and I hope you enjoy. As usual all comments and critiques are very much appreciated.

Cheers
Matt

A 'liquid gold' shot Matt. Love the sun's reflection on the wet sand. A close call with the fish and chips though TongueGrin

Lovely colours and textures Matt. The sky is gorgeous too - a little bit of cloud does wonders and faintly reflected in the wet sand too!

You did say you had to crop it a bit.... I just wonder if a lower viewpoint with horizon higher up might have given this more punch? A fine image as it is though.

Regards,
Barney

Wow, thanks everyone so much for all the votes, comments and amazingly the GE Award very happy with it all!
I think Jamie Oliver could use this as a way to stop people eating chips, don't eat chips and you'll get photos you're really happy with lol!

The hungry feeling and soggy feet were worth it lol.
Thanks again,
Matt
