Many thanks for all the comments on my last upload.

This one was taken just before sunrise on Saturday. The Menai Straits were about as calm as they ever get and the sky was pretty clear aside from loads of contrails. I donít think Iíve ever realised how many planes go overhead here!

Thanks for looking, comments & crit welcome, as ever... Chris Wink

That is a fabulous sky, a little dark in the foreground but not enough to spoil my enjoyment.

Thanks for all the comments...

I see what you mean about the foreground Robert, I may have gone a bit far with the curves Smile I was aiming for a strong silouhette to emphasise the shape of the shale, but will have another play...

Cheers... Chris Wink

This is such a beautifull photograph but I think your framing over powers the eye and draws attention away from the subtle sunset. Have a play around with different borders, and remember that a border may work well for one image and look awfull on another Smile

Thanks again for the comments. I must admit that the frame is usually the part that I give least attention to, so will take that on board Smile

Cheers Guys...

Yup, we are on a highway in the sky - lots of planes cross over here for Manchester and London. It plays havoc with the sky Sad

Lovely subtle colours there though.
