The Cloch last night,

Im always amazed by the rocks down at this place as well as some of the more random stuff that gets washed up.

on the other side tho I hate the place cause everytime i go there something bad happens to either my camera or kit lol.

(im not too sure if this is too dark, would love some feedback and critique)

I love the shot, awesome sky and great detail. Difficult to say whether or not you would loose the impact of the sky if you lightened it.

Amazing sky. I don't think it's too dark at all but, as with Rowarrior I would have tried to get closer to the lighthouse.

An amazing image with that awesome sy.I wonder what it would be like if you lightened the lighthouse.Maybe there would not be any improvement what so ever. It's just that the emphasis is on the sky and not the lighthouse. perhaps that is how you wanted it and that's ok by me as it is still a very strong and dramatic image.

It certainly wouldnt of hurt for me to dodge up the lighthouse alittle but the sunset is very much the star of the show hehe.

thanks for the comments Smile

Looks fine on my monitor! Almost like two different images colourwise - very cold on the right with warm tones on the left; interesting effect that the sun setting has created here!

Looks good to me too. I probably would lift the lighthouse and the foreground rocks a smidgen but no more.

Great shot!

Superb colours and love the clarity and detail of the rocks and lighthouse.
In my opinion its not too dark just enough to add mood and allow those lovely colours to come through.
Well done .
