Just looking for some tips on this shot, I'm very proud of it but was just curious as it didn't seem to get many comments, tip etc.

I used the Hitech prostopper 10 which gave it a horrible colour cast and a lens flare which I removed later in PS

Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

I really like it. Looks very spooky and has a great atmosphere.

Impressive hulk well captured and with lots of possibilities.

I agree with Lynne... loads of possibilities.

I have cropped out some of the sea to bring the horizon onto the thirds line and cropped a slight amount from both sides, reducing the letter box that the first crop produced. In levels evened the histogram and lightened the image. Also some tint has been added as in Lynne's mod plus the horizon was running ever so slightly.

They are only small changes and only a matter of taste as the original is very nice.

An image with lots of potential. I would go with cropping some sky as the sea is more interesting and has lines leading towards the area of interest.
regards, Ian

A great take on the idea of minimalism.
