Simple composition aided by the long exposure - superb - should go well! Steve.

Lovely tones, Derek, and I like the symmetry, broken by the white of the windfarm masts.

Love the composition and the toning Derek - and especially the white wind farm on the horizon which really adds interest.

Too many people whack on a Big Stopper for the sack of it. Not you Derek, this is excellent. Would make a good B&W I would imagine.

I agree with the comment by Mike about the Big Stopper, though I also have to say I have only managed to use mine once or twice in the last 18 months/2 years! Nice to see one being put to creative use though Wink

Good use of the filters to create the mood for this striking minimalist composition, I like the symmetry of lines and contrasting texture of hard and soft, a really nice image Derek.

Out of interest, which big stopper do you use. I use B&W, but struggle to leave the image in colour due to a muddy cast.

I am officially 'stunned'. This image has been sitting on my hard drive for a few months now and although I liked it and thought it would do ok on EPZ I didnt think it would appeal quite so much. So once again thank you to everyone who has voted or commented. Big thanks to Pete for the POTW award and thank you Mike for the UA.
