Jurrassic Gloom

By redstag  
Soon after I took the last shot I uploaded, the clouds came in.
It really got very gloomy very quickly. These shots are usually called before the rain, but I have to be honest and say you couldn't really call what happened next rain, there was the odd spot, a bit of drizzle maybe, but nothing spectacular.
Enough to drive me back to my car for the next installment of Harry Potter.
I've done a mono version too which looks dramatic.

All comments welcome.

ps I've ticked mods welcome, so if you are offended by the flag on the headland, please feel free to clone it out! Wink

This has been a good series Jon, fabulous light and colour. The improved tonal range of your new toy really pays dividends . V1 for me ,

Nice sense of impending doom/storm in this. Mono version has the edge for me.

Mike I have been amazed by the subtle differences between the two cameras, I couldn't reccommend upgrading to anyone with a 300d, but I wouldn't go back!
It is I think the tonal quality of the new beasty that does it, plus the extra speed you get with it (fab for HDR).

On second thoughts, I can and do recommend it to anyone with a 300d!

Thanks for the comments guys.

Have to go with the colour version.

Both fine works Jon, but 1, has an intensity of mood with that colour tone, and picking up the golden colour in the cliff and pebbles makes a fine image, Adrian

Another excellent shot Jon, very dramatic. I like the mono conversion, allthough maybe a tad on the dark side.

V1 for me.
