Sorry I've been away for a few weeks I've been incredibly busy organising Art Markets and doing one-to-one tuition amongst other things which has meant I haven't had much time to get out with the camera or to go online.

Anyway I managed to get down to Saltburn on Monday night and after waiting around for a good couple of hours the light eventually broke making the cliffs glow this incredible red/orange.

I'm normally quite good at picking the definitive image from a set but in this case I've ended up with two, with a slightly different feels and I can't decide between them so I thought I'd upload both and let you decide for yourselves Smile

Thanks for stopping bye

A nice composition with good f/g detail. Prefer V 1 with the brighter lighting which gives more intensity to the reflected colours in the water and tends to etch the edge of the f.g stones and water channels so nicely.
It's good to see you back and posting your images again.
Regards, Ronnie.

Great composition and the light on the cliffs looks great it makes the whole picture.

Hi Dennis, I wondered if we'd see the fruit of Monday's trip to Saltburn. The sun was just disappearing as I got down, but I had to come as the sky looked fab through the window at home. It's much more common to get no clouds over huntcliff when the sun is shining on it like that at low light, so you got good conditions.
I prefer V1 for all the same reasons as Ronnie Smile

It was a nice sky wasn't it, no colour but nice dramatic clouds. I've got one looking back towards the pier from after sunset too which I might post tomorrow. The light and cloud above Hunt Cliff where quite special but I struggled a bit to be honest as everything down this end of the beach was covered in kelp Sad I really wanted a simpler foreground but I guess it won't exactly be a hardship going back and having another go (or ten) over the summer Smile

V1 was my fav yesterday. I've printed it up at A3+ on some nice Hahnemuehle FineArt Baryta paper and it looks beautiful but today I'm leaning towards V2 for its darker broodier feel?

Got to be V2 for me - slightly better composed foreground and feel V1 cliffs look too bright

I lean toward v2. I like the foreground, and the cliff appears a bit more natural.

Know what you mean but the colour in V1 is also totally natural. The light was just much more intense at this point. The colour is a combination of the iron rich rocks in the cliff and the late warm sun which is just about to set. Both shots look exactly as they did on the back of the camera Smile

V2 all the way Den, far more moody with lovely subtle light on the fg rocks.
Hope everything's going well.

V1 for me all-the-way Den.

The extra light for starters lifts it - V2 feels slightly dull and lacking in punch rather than brooding, also the light lifts the fg rocks and sand where it catches the edges better in V1.

The slightly wider comp of V1 provides more reflections in the wet sand to reaffirm the gorgeous light on the cliffs and the inclusion of those ripples in the fg clinch it - for me at least.

V2 is fine, but on comparison V1 gets my vote.

Paul

V1 seems far more vivid and bright.
Nicely done.

PS, thanks for the great advice re: Lee filters, cost a packet but very well worth it.

Hi Den, I prefer the clouds of V2 but the light in V1. Also, as Paul says above, V2 looks a bit dark on the ground especially when compared to the vibrant V1. If I had to choose just one image it would be V1.
