Taken last weekend, I converted it to B&W, andjusted levels & duotoned it in PSCS.

Although I like the image and it is what I wanted, I still don't know if I have over done it on the contrast front.

Appreciate any comments.

*click* i like the composition and i think the contrast level you have set it too adds to the overall atmosphere and mood of the image. mumbles lighthouse is always a great view for photography.

Thank you very much for your prompt comments. Its a fine line with digital imaging between a good shot and overdone manipulation/adjustment. Still a bit of a virgin to this Photoshop lark so, feedback is really appreciated. Thanks again.

Lovely composition and movement in the waves. The use of a wide-angle lens adds to the drama. I think the contrast is a bit high, especially in the upper half of the picture. Still merits a click though.

Excelent, the BW really emphesises the look and feel of the water, against the rocks.

The tide almost seems to drag you to the light house... Where is it?

Click great shot.

I do like the composure and especially the shutter speed choosen and don't mind the contrast which would probably look a lot better on paper than on screen.
