Please indulge me for a short while as I am still trying this technique and getting some results I am fairly happy with. Look great in the original [pre EPZ] file.

Another of the Stalker series but a different composition to those uploaded previously.

The brighter line of seaweed helps to take your eye into the picture. I like the bleached effect - works well with the weed and the rocks.

Superb shot Paul and composed to perfection. I have a slight niggle about the brightness of the rock in the middle foreground though as I find it pulls my eye back from the castle.

Definitiely works, nice moody overall image with the foreground light leading to the water and castle...have to agree with Dave about the brightest fg rock.

Great comp. I would have probably tried to get that rock more to the front/bottom of the frame and missed the nice lead-in of the seaweed. I think it works really well. I also like the mood in this too!

Cheers Mark, I did get one with it further to the bottom and you do miss that weed lead-in, but it still works though.

Not uploaded a mod Paul, but had a quick look in PS and feel that this would be strong and moody as a B&W.

I'd just do some work to lose the halo at the top of the castle. But then as you know I'm a perfectionist Smile)

Cheers Ron, much appreciated.

Thanks Cheryl, I have already converted this to mono prior to 'adding the colour' as this is part of the process, and you're right it does look strong. Will have a look at the halo it's not there on the full size version, just an artifact from sharpening by the look of it!! Thanks for your time.

Cheers Sandra glad you lke it.

Cheers John ... as for the rock, some people think it's too light which maybe I agree with, but to tone it down too much would be to lose it among that kelp, so it stays [for now].
