Not much more to say than: exceptional.

I feel myself being pulled into the cauldron of water at the end of those steps.

Congrats on the awards Les, like the mono processing, but just wonder about the hard white edge outline near the bottom of the steps perhaps a bit of toning to soften it as the other transitions

Thanks for the comments and likes everyone, specially Anne for her GEA award and Mr B for the extra sticker.

Richard I looked at that long and hard, in the end my thoughts were to leave it, when it comes to printing I may look again, until then I'm happy with the image as is.

Absolutely superb Les and my taste in subject matter to boot. The high contrast toning works extremely well. Gets my award today

Very strong image Les, tho I do agree with Richard about the end step, water transition line.

Cheers Nick, it's the wash back of the tide, because it's natural I decided to keep it in, I believe it adds rather than detracts, appreciate the comment though

the lights and darks work well and the central view point has initial impact, have you thought about a boat on the horizon?
