This is the last shot of the cliffs at Sandymouth Bay and this is certainly the most interesting part of the cliffs, with alternating layers of shale and sandstone.

Think it's my favourite Julian - seems so "real" somehow and the contrast between the geometric cliff and the rounded pebbles just seems to work.

I too like the contrast between the geometric lines of the cliff face and the rounded pebbles, gorgeous colour and textures

Thanks everyone!!

Ian: I didn't see any fossils - but then I wasn't really looking that hard. Smile

Merille: levels, curves, selective colour and finally a subtle saturation boost.

This has a lovely smoothed feel and a warmth despite the cold grey. And an excellent balanced composition. I don't really know why, but this one works so well. I wish I'd taken it. Shame I can't vote twice.

An excellent abstract. Wonderful colours, tones and textures. It's all there. Would look good on a wall.

I feel ashamed not to have noticed and voted on this exceptional shot before. The exposure, detail, colours and composition are flawless.

I was down at Porth Nanven (a cove on the Cornish coast) a few weeks ago and noticed a few features which I thought then and there you would have loved. I was reminded of your close-up landscape images when I saw them, and so thought I'd have a go at emulating you. (Or is the word imitate Smile). I may summon up sufficient courage to upload them here, but the curious thing is that one of them shared the features of this particular shot (which I hadn't seen until today) - pebbles collected at the bottom of the frame and a grooved or veined rock surface rising up through the image.

Thanks, Conrad! They did a good job with the reproduction - and an even better job of making something printable out of the German caption I provided.... Smile
