A curious composition, Matt, which I quite like and is growing on me, but which I think would be hugely improved by a rotation clockwise!
By my measurement the horizon seems to be off by 1.89 degress! It may not be, but it looks like it is! Erm...Wink

Amazingly well held exposure, too Smile

Thanks Bill.

There isn't actually any horision visible in the picture. If you could see through the haze in the far distance, the line of cliffs will continue almost to the edge of the frame.

So, 1.89 degrees - do you mean clockwise or anticlockwise!? Wink

Quote:... by a rotation clockwise!...

Yep - hard to measure it as it's only an implied horizon, as you say.
I reckon it works to the benefit of the image - gives it a bit more oomph, somehow, and straightens the red post.
Only my opinion, of course! Wink Smile
