It makes a change for me to shoot during the day, but the seas and skies of Scilly certainly make it worthwhile.

A polarizer and ND Grad were used here to make the most of the movement in the water.

This is looking the opposite direction from my previous upload at Peninnis Head.

Thanks for all previous comments and clicks, and for the kind words on the PP cover!

Off to process some more now, as the weather has ruined any other plans!

Love the exposure on the water (again) Paul.
The interest from the sea and the tomes in the rock has made up for the flat light. I wonder how this would work in Black and White?

I use the cheap Cokin filter system Joshua, it's not ideal, but you can use all 3/4 slots at once if you needed. my polariser is a slot in type, not a screw fit.

Thanks for the kind words people! Smile
