Taken just as the sun appeared briefly behind a sea fret in Flamborough's Selwick Bay.
4secs@f22 (Lee soft 0.6 grad)
No, I'm not going to say anything about obsessions you might have with certain kinds of symbols! And there's no reflections "problem" here, either. Safe choice, Keith! ;-D
Excellent composition, of course, looks very natural, love the foreground and the subtle sky.
Even better than the previous version, Keith. From what I see you wont have to wait ten years to get a better image.
Oh lovely - what a striking image
excellent subtle tones, spot on exposure
LOL @ Conrad. Talk about pot and kettle, look at his Pink Granite shot. Ooer.
Not sure about the bovvered tag either!
Classy as always.
Superb colour tones and light. Excellent detail and textures, as for the symbolic connotations......!
I don't understand
cheers you 5
nicely exposed shot esp with detail retained under the water .. wuite subtle light and superb composition (as always) ... once again impressed (as always) click
Everything's good apart from that sky - just looks naff for some reason.
I much prefer the other version and in print it's a million times better and looks very different,
Prefer the tennis shots
Fantastic world.Excellent lighting.
I see you moved forward Keef, to 'expose' the reflection of the stack in all its proud glory. My, but that's rather magnificent! I can see why Mrs Keef was impressed; which of us could fail to be!
Do you look bovvered? lol! ;o)
v much enjoyed this one; subtle
Nice shot ,second comments as above,although i`m not one for tennis,golf or cricket shots.Lol Each to there own.
Great image, I was hoping to head there myself sometime soon, now I just feel intimadated.
Just looked at the other one, because for some reason this one isn't sitting right with me. The composition and foreground interest is spot on and to be honest I'm not even sure why it's not working for me. Perhaps the sky is a bit too bland at the top, where as the previous one has a bit more punch to it. I know that everybody else will think I'm talking s**te, but I can only give my opinion and I know I'm not making a strong case for myself and it's not like I'm some sort of expert, but I don't pat people on the back just because others do and I appreciate honest opinions on my shots as that is how I learn, so I try to give honest opinions to others. It is without a doubt a good shot, but not one of your best (still far better than anything of mine!!!).
Very nice. Like this one a lot.
No missuse of GND filters this time?
Means **** all to me anyway - I'm just a beginner and I like what I see.
thanks for stopping by...but where's Russ?
...and Eileene!!!....how very dare you?
Luvly. I like how the shape of the light-coloured sand between the foreground rocks and the shape of the column's reflection kind of match.
Jeeze Keith I darnt post any comments to your pics anymore, I can happily argue with you but tbh trying to defend myself against all of your henchmen( or should that be hensmen?:-0) at once for something I never said becomes a little tiresome.
A critique? well go on seems as you asked....
Initally let me say I dont think its a bad picture. That said ......
Of course I prefer the balance between the sky and the sea, and I also prefer the stack being fully reflected in the sea. I also like the choice of exposure for rendering the sea, which btw is remarkably flat for Flamboro. Nice triangular lead in lines and interest on the rhs balanced as best as you could no doubt with the little rock intrusion.
Ultimatly though you have much better images ( although not that other one!). The little bit of red livens things up a little but all told I think that the light is just too flat to make this work for me. Theres a uniform light greyness which doesnt appeal that much. We both know that you have xxx clicks coming that suggest I am wrong, but there you go, ive seen you get that for self confessed wip's
In the strive for exceptional images I am sure that you would agree they are few and far between. The constant demand of Epz to gobble up a daily posts can lead us all to post things which, whilst technically competent and well composed, are not a representation of us at our best - or possibly more truthfully - are not a representation of us working in the best light we may have hoped for.
Fair Enough? Of course it would come as no surprise to you that a low colour scene doesnt really grab me, one look in my gallery would tell you that and I accept that its more my issue than this images.
forgot to give you a click
You can have this one for free
For the simple reason that you used natures reflector to give yourself some light. Otherwise it'd have been flat and lifeless. But then, you knew that anyway.
so we're back on line.
It's a tale of two details. Had the light been there I would not have been able to have got the underwater detail without using a CPL and even then, not as seen here. The previous, now well viewed image shows what happens when the light finally pours through and some rock detail is lost in the cameras inability to record such wide ranging dynamics.
We all have better images.....I'm confident enough in my work to post a wide ranging selection of it.
Even if there were no colours, I still think it would not be 'flat and lifeless' because of the underwater details. That brings lots of life into the shot I think. Now, if you can just combine the colours in the sky from the last one, and the underwater details on this one, that would be even better. I wonder where you can buy a grad that is maybe a 1.2ND on top and a 0.2 polarizer on the bottom...LOL...
this looks like a tricky one to capture and you have obviously done well with the light given, good detail in the rocks and cliff, the large version is a must.
A true beauty well examined by Patrick
now, this one i like. the 'other' one certainly has the 'wow', but this is the sort of thing id have on my wall.
Happy to be number 30. Beautiful touch of colour on the horizon. Very nicely composed.
I like this one a lot. It has plenty of impact (not surprising really) and that spot of colour on the horizon works a treat. I'm no landscape photographer so I don't really know what to say, but I know what I like and this does it for me, so there you go.
thanks for ALL the comments and I'll see you lot tonight......ish
Excellent Keith - so comfortable to view :O)
This one rocks! Brilliant.
is that 'cos it looks phallic?
thanks for the comments
on reflection its fine
It does not pack the punch that the other one did, but its still good.
It's the shape of a "thingy", that's why you liked it isn't it?
Go on, admit it!!
I think the low light adds atmosphere to this shot and the perspective, composition and clarity are excellent.
Hard day at work, looking forward to coming home and viewing Henson's latest upload of tennis superstar Katerina Undercracker...and this is what I get?
Hard Day at Work?
Talk to hand.
cheers guys....and Martin the only person who thinks it looks like a knob is you.
I personally prefer this image over your other, the tranquil lighting is so calming. The detail from the sandy seabed to the top of the sky has such clarity. I'm sure it must have been a special morning.
Subtle, but very very good.

Pah! You don't know you're born.
Over one hundred clients today and the oldest one was four. I've now got nits, a bad back, a mark on my forehead left by a Fimble sticker, suspected chickenpox and trousers that smell of wee...although that last one may have been my fault.
Over One Hundred Clients?????!!
Wow, I always thought that the camera in those passport booths was automatic.
. . I'm with @LeCCy . . although I got a bit bored after the 2nd paragraph . . LOL . .
. . . maybe you missed "phalic" as a tag? . . still a great shot in my book . . connotations or not
Quote: Wow, I always thought that the camera in those passport booths was automatic.
You live and learn. It's a tough job. Counting the money, switching the switch for the little lights, moving the camera up and down so that no matter what you do to the little stool, the top of your head is still cut off...
yer a pro and no mistake...do girls still flash their bits at you?
Quote: the 'other' one certainly has the 'wow'
Geez, am I sick of the 'wow'
Quote: Subtle, but very very good
The 'but' is misplaced here
Was the sea really as flat as it looks here? My non-technical eye likes most of what you come up with and this is no exception.
yup...the sea really was that still...won't be like that again for a while.
and yes Ufe...I'm fed up of the 'wow' too.
I really like the underwater detail in this one Keith. Heck, I like all of the shot.
My wife seemed to like it too for some subliminal reason ;o)
Just love this. Not the same one you showed me printed up yesterday is it? The sky was different.
Must find this place.
cheers you two....the print is a few shots back, Al...saw your email...will reply later.
Hi Keith,it's all been said,i think it's amazing and i love it.Take care.Ann
