Another shot from one of my visits to Crosby earlier on in the week. This is one of the iron men covered in barnacles and seaweed.

This one's a bit of an experiment, I used a burst of flash on the beach and then processed one raw file a couple of times and then combined them in photoshop.

Any comments welcomed.

The experiment worked so well, Clive. The way the light picks out the sand and the statue's reflection makes that part perhaps the strongest element in this impressive image.

A cracking image, well done.

A fantastic image!
Just a small point but I would remove the figure in the background, far left.

The flash works so well on this Clive as it lights up the water in the foreground showing off the shadow of the figure. A nice series.
