Yes it's got to be viewed large. I do like the dark sky with the little white puffy ones on the horizon line. There is a nice open space feel to this one.

Thank you Katie and Phil - appreciate your encouragement and feedback ...

Colin - thank you so much for taking the trouble to prepare a mod; my PS skills are pretty basic ... have no idea about dodging and burning (yet) lol! Thank you once again ...

A terrific capture, I like it a lot. I've been searching the archives for the thread on the sharpening technique Thread Dodging & burning brushes are in the PS palette. Dodging pick a brush size, start at a low % it lightens anything you brush over.....Burning brush darkens the same way. Best to use then on a layer to preserve the original. There'll be a tutorial in the Techniques section. Good Luck

Hi Susie - you're making me want one of these lenses! I didn't fully appreciate this one until I opened the large version. Great drama in the sky but it's the waves crashing in the clearing in the clouds that really makes this for me. The seagull's a nice finishing touch too Smile
Done a bit of a mod (I never do mods usually but this one inspired me) - just playing really!

Lovely colours and that sky adds nice drama!!!

You have framed the buildings very well with the rain laden clouds and the golden sand. Lovely contrast of colours.

Susie - you've succeeded in producing a very dramatic and brooding landscape image here. The sky in particular is very dramatic and this effect is helped considerably as it dumps heavy rain showers in the distance. The buildings in the middle of the picture, being bathed in light, create a nice contrast to the sky. Finally, there is just about enough foreground interest, in the sand, diagonal pond of water and bird to scrape by. All in all, an excellent picture. John

A first class image - great stuff. Love the moody sky..... I could write a book I thinkWink

Very good!! You really see it at its best large. The paterns in the sand, the blackback budgy on the beach but the dinger that does it is the cloud formation on the 'orizon.

Really grand work.

I like them both but this give you a better idea of the sweeping view in front of you. This one is more grand and the other one is more artistic. Good idea to get both!
