The only useable shot I got at Black Nab with the 10 stop filter on (taken 14/05/10 in the company of pdove and ripleysalien and Eric). I need more practice at getting exposures right with the 10 stop, and more patience in waiting for the results.
I haven't converted this because of a colour cast - just because I thought it suited it, and the colours of the 'sunset' were pretty subdued and moody to begin with.
Again, my mono 'workflow' is far from perfected, so all advice is welcome.
Thanks

I think it's perfect the way it is. The tones right across the photo are just right. Great mono - Paul

This is superb in my book Leigh, lovely movement in the clouds and some great light, doesn't need anything doing to it, except perhaps lifting the shadow a tad from under the wreck.
Lovely mood and atmosphereSmile

A beautiful image throughout Leigh. Personally I would have brought a little detail out under the hull of the boats shadow, and of course I would darken the sky more. You should know me and my sky's by now?

Still love it!
Kind Regards
Ian

Great shot but im with Ian, more detail in the sky, just a little dodge and burn, with a level boost.
Tis a nice shot though, quite like the compo too.

Thank you so much for the UA, Chris, and to all for the C&C's, particularly the advice. I did anticipate being encouraged to push the contrast further in the sky, but I felt I'd gone far enough - for my taste, anyway. I'll probably go back to this and tweak it just a little, as suggested. I do agree that I should have kept more detail in the shadow under the wreck - I didn't try to do that at all, so it should be quite recoverable.
