Over the years I have seen many great images of Dungeness, which have been wonderfully composed and crafted. Many of those wonderful images have stopped me from uploading my somewhat meagre attempt at trying to the ruggedness and raw beauty that is Dungeness in fear that I may not hit the mark. However after readdressing what I believe was just a lack of confidence and insecurity I have decided to grab the proverbial Bull by the horns and over the course of a week or so I shall upload what I now consider to be images worthy of uploading. Please free to analyse, criticise, demolish and tear apart at your leisure.

Thank you for all your comments and most welcomed messages following yesterdays upload.

I hope that you all have a great day ahead, for me it is a trip to the Vet in order that Kizmet receives his first set of inoculations and get his micro chip inserted.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

"I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying"

good effort.....or perhaps even brilliant...only you will know SmileSmile

I would say there's room for some brightening (clarity) around the boat, but really like the addition (real or otherwise Smile) of the birds into that sky

Nice use of portrait, to give equal importance to the gulls.
I've only been there in summer, January must be quite something - even more bleak and isolated.
Looking forward to more. The thing about the place is that everyone has their own Dungeness, everyone sees it differently.

Powerful.

You need not fret Nathan, this is easily up there with the best Dungeness images I've seen. Great atmosphere and the birds add something extra. It looks a little underexposed, which would easily be fixed in post, I just bring your white point up a little and I think it would make it even punchier without losing that brooding atmosphere. Great shot either way though

I like it very much, at the seaside a grey day is never lost. Btw I don't really wish the time away, I never got enough. Just so tired of grey fog and rain.

Lovely capture Nathan, love the moodiness of the sky and the seagulls, but can honestly say that in the 19 years of living down here, I have only ever seen Dungeness and Littlestone in brilliant weather - I really must get out more Wink ... Carol GrinGrinGrin

It was well worth trawling through the galleries to view this moody and atmospheric image of Dungeness
