Shot in Priests Cove (I think) at Cape Cornwall.

I am finding some really interesting images shooting into the sun, having been told for years that this was a no no, although I think I should have cloned out the flare bottom left (just noticed - darn it).

The rocks and pebbles were protected under a scientific interest law and I have to say they were beautiful.

Touched up slightly in Aperture 3

lovely shot, I havent quite got the hang of shots that have direct sunlight in them, so this is spurring me on knowing that it can result in lovely shots like this

Good capture, but have to warn folk not to look through the lens at the sun because of damage to the eyes.

Thanks guys,

Good point Trev, I usually look at a feature of the Landscape and use my peripheral vision to check the position ofthe sun. Or use a Tripod and Live view if your camera has it.

Accipiter - good call, I will try that.

Lou - definately worth it, also switching to manual means a lot more control and the ability to get the sun star shaped occasionally.

Thanks

I know the location well...those are The Brisons on the horizon, which in this part of the world is.....horizontal! (unlike your shot!)

Otherwise, you might try underexposing a little to bring some colour back into the rocks, but digital doesn't cope well with this type of shot. Good try though, it looks peaceful.

Nice picture, but I think a long shutter speed to soften the water would have given a beautiful picture.
