I always avoid anything man made that isn't a lighthouse, ruined castle/abbey or a drystone wall yet this more modern structure works for me. I suspect it is that fabulous red/black almost industrial coloured sky that does it. The water is perfectly exposed too and the groyne makes a great lead in.
It was nearly very expensive Lesley. I heard a scratching noise as I stood up and looked down at the "naked" end of my lens minus £400 worth of filter kit. After putting everything else in the car I took the plunge, literally, and eventually came up with the holder and filters, wet but intact. Almost an expensive lesson in which I learned that, unsurprisingly, the water in the Dales is not warm in October. Dave
Thanks all for your kind comments. Gary not sure about recognition I seem to get a fair amount of votes and kind comments. Also many of the landscape photographers on here are way out of my league, not least young Andy whose comments appear directly above mine. I just hope the p/f reflects some improvement over the years. I mostly post to keep a reasonably chronological record of my stuff. I'm still about 28 shots of sufficient quality short of the thirty target I've set myself before I can justify a website.
I very much like the foreground rocks. So much in fact I would have been half tempted to crop out the castle altogether. You also did well to keep yourself and the tripod balanced. Nowt like planting yourself big stopper first in the drink or on the rocks as I almost did at Saltwick Bay.
I love the composition and you have slowed the water down nicely too. I notice you are using cokin filters and I wonder if they have caused a purple cast to the shot. On my monitor the colours look slightly out. That aside its a nice, simple, well judged shot and I like the positioning of the gronye too.
Thank you all for your kind comments. Lee I can't wait to have another crack in a week or three as I think the autumn colours will look stunning.
This is a beauty. I have clicked up therefore. I must confess under the old system I would just have voted without comment as everything has been said already and I have nothing to offer by way of constructive criticism due to the quality of the image. Mind you under this new system if I hadn't liked it I simply wouldn't have voted. I am not sure why we need a system of negative voting.
