Hi Guys,

This is another from South Wales a few weeks back. I was experimenting with some rock formations when I saw this couple walking beneath what I thought was an attractive sky so I just spun the tripod round and fired off a few rounds.

Probably not a typical landscape shot this one so it will interesting to see how this one does but the subtlety & scale appeals to me even if it is a daytime shot (shock horror).

Any thoughts or comments most welcome.

Cheers,

Ade

This is a very appealing shot , shows man's insignificance in the scale of things. Love the figures on the beach and the vast sky adds so much to this composition.

Mary has beaten me to it with the comment about man's insignificance. There is a kind of hugeness in this image, which is enhanced by the tiny figures on the beach. You must have been very pleased with this result, it is excellent Smile

Marvellous composition. Although the figures are small and in the middle distance, they are so necessary in bringing a sense of scale, and they are also so well positioned against the light patch of water. And I like your square format and presentation. Really nice work.
Ronnie.

It's not a "landscape" shot it's a "skyscape" shot, and what a brilliant one it iis!!! Full marks for something different than the norm!!!

This is truly beautiful. I'm just staggered (and a bit annoyed !) that this hasn't got more votes, whereas some nasty over-saturated HDR nightmare will get hundreds!

Love the sense of scale, the natural processing...the very faint land in the distance. And there's not enough daylight shots around IMHO.
