I think I can help you there Cole. It's a single exposure and that's what makes it all the more impressive ... his set up was a combination of hard and soft grads, angled and stacked to make the grad transition barely noticeable.

Looked great on the back of the camera, even better now it's processed ... one I wish I'd taken TBH!!!

I'm sure Rich won't mind me answering for him ... too late if he does Grin

Excellent Richard, one of the best for me I have seen from Elgol I reckon.
You have arranged four main elements cohesively into the frame all glued by the unobtrusive sea, an image full of variety and interest.

Brilliant.

A super image full of quality, ive sat looking at it for ages. At first unsure of the warm tones / versus cool tones (Caused by angled grads to keep the RH rock details ???). But the more I look at it the more I like the effect. Certainly worth the wait.
