Golden afternoon at Porth Nanven

By JenRogers    
A gorgeous afternoon at Porth Nanven with lovely golden light on the cliffs and just a few wisps of cloud in the sky to add interest. I liked the way the light was catching the boulder and have deliberately placed it centrally for more impact.

A bit of a tilt to the sea - and lovely light. Plus a majestic sweep to the contours.

If you want to, you may be able to enable mods on pictures in the main gallery - it may depend on your type of membership.

I wonder about more impact resulting from a central composition - it definitely can work, but whether it has done here is less certain (in my mind, anyway). It needs some congruence of various other factors in the composition, I think. (And maybe it woudl work nicely with a square format?)

I've tried a square crop, and it works reasonably. It made me wonder what this would have looked like if you'd had a big stopepr filter, and had been able to use a really long shutter speed, so that instead of blurred waves, you had white swirls around the rock... A different picture, but it's about options...

Hi dudler

Thanks for your comments, I like the idea of the longer exposure to capture a swirl around the rock, something I use frequently (here is an example) - on this occasion though I fear as my tripod was resting on sand I would have ended up with more blur than I wanted due to tripod shake. I agree a square crop often works best when the main point of interest is placed centrally but I was loath to lose the orange light on the sand, and also liked the streaks of cloud. Off again to Porth Nanven next week so I can try again!
