This is my first attempt at something like this. It was quite a nice day in Blackpool yesterday, but I thought id try something different to give Blackpool that "edge". Comments welcome. I hope you like it

The underlying shot has good potential but the brown clouds look like horrible pollution. Sad

Why shutter-priority? Unless you're going for deliberate motion blur, you only care that the shutter speed is fast enough to avoid camera shake and freeze any subject motion. In this case, there's no subject motion, so any shutter speed faster than about 1/(1.6 x focal length) will avoid camera shake and give essentially the same photograph. In such cases, it's usually better to use aperture priority because aperture controls depth of field. With an 18mm lens, depth of field at f/6.3 is probably fine so the choice of shutter priority hasn't hurt you but it's something to bear in mind.

Yeah I see your point. It was only set to shutter priority because I had been changing this regularly throughout the day, and never thought to switch it over. I also had a wide angle extension on the end of the 18mm
