I have taken this scene before but it looked a little flat, so went back with better light to try again.

What do you think ?

Isn't it sad when you spend so much time on ePz that you instantly recognise shots that have been posted previously?! I haven't looked again at the previous posting yet, Alethea, but this one is excellent.

I recognised this as yours too!! Is it Three cliffs area? ...the strong contrast works well giving the image punch (maybe ever so slightly overdone?)

This is at Ogmore near Southerndown isnt it?, the lighting is really good, shows all the textures in the stones, works really well as B&W, great work Alethea.

Thanks for all those comments everyone, it is much appreciated.

Just to answer a couple of things, its pretty much as taken on camera with a slight adjustments in levels, and a tiny bit of work to light the first stone up a bit.

Its Three Cliffs at a place called Pennard Pill, unfortunately its impossible to get the three cliffs in the same shot, unless of course you are very good in photoshop !

Thanks Tony, that means a lot !

Hello Alethea, love the way the repetition of the stones feature so well leading the eye into the scene...the balance of land and water features well. Good work.

The high contrast treatment really adds punch to this one, Alethea. I've never really considered these stepping stones before (merely crossed them). I'll have to think again now I've seen this shot.
