Last shot of the day taken recently on a first visit to Elegug Stacks wirh PEBishop. It was blowing a gale although the light was great. A dawn shot from here would probably have been better. Not sure about this one so don't be afraid to give me honest feedback!
Thanks for looking.

Beautifully done - I love the way the light is catching the thrift in the foreground and the detail and colours are first class.

Good foreground frame which runs into the beautifully red coloured cliff. The bay has a great shape with the stacks diagonally across the entrance. Smooth water but with some lovely swirls. The far headland is a bit dark and the horizon is a bit too close to the cliff tops.

Those were my immediate thoughts as I viewed the image, Alun, but it was the horizon that was my main concern. Having said that it is still a very good image, just not your perfection...... honest opinion.

Thanks a lot. Pleased you like it.
Dave - yep, those points and the lack of cloud. The horizon at the same level as the cliff tops was what irked me most - an inevitable consequence of squatting so low to avoid tripod shake in the high wind. Thanks

Nice shot Alun just a shame that the top of the cliffs are in direct line with horizon. I think it might have been a better shot had u managed to get the cliffs breaking the horizon. Hope u don't mind me sayingSmile)

Strong wind and close tot he edge of a drop makes the composition believable. A better place for the horizon would have made this work better, but the wind I suppose was the real culprit.

I haven't got an issue with the composition. I wouldn't worry about it too much!!! The stacks are IMO difficult to shoot from this particular viewpoint. I've never come away from here with the perfect shot. The location will always play havoc with the horizon!! Lovely colors and wonderfully sharp.
