Many thanks a apologies to all who commented and clicked on the last version of this but I decided it was overworked and the more I looked the more I didn't like it. This is the reworked version. hope you like it better, I do.

Didn't see your original version but this one looks fine to me.

Well, this was a difficult scene to shoot because it was taken in such bright contrasty light. The foreground is clear and sharp. The assortment and placement of the rocks look good as well. So while this looks fine, it would look great with lower, warmer and/or more even light, possibly with more cloudiness around. Great place though, so I hope to see more from here. I see I missed an interesting one, so I'll check that one out too.

Great composition, although I might've been tempted to crop the the bottom stone out...

Quote:, it would look great with lower, warmer and/or more even light,
excse my ignorance, but do you mean a more even light throughout the image as in equal sunlight bg to fg? And what do you mean by "lower" light? Later in the day? Thanks. Paul

I think Patrick means that rather than shooting in the bright midday sunshine, if there was a little cloud cover then this would soften/diffuse the light and stop it being so contrasty, thereby allowing more detail in the shadow areas.

Also, "lower" light is the light created first thing in the morning or late evening, when the sun is lower in the sky and generates a better light.

I hope this helps.

Like it very much especially the cloud reflections in the rock pools.

Yes, a better version--differet time of day might make a totally different image-- but I sure would be slipping back every now and then "cause it is a great site!

Hi Paul.....Sorry to say, I missed the 1st version, but this one you seem to have captured brilliantly!

Larger Version is a must-see....Shows intricate detail to the rocks and reflections....Great looking sky as well!

Thank you for all of your kind comments, they are truly appreciated....x

Hoping you're having a really great day so far...Cheers,
Suzan Smile

Thank you Suzan and Bill. PAul

It's a better version, Paul, but it does still suffer from the light.

I've cropped it in your mods which is the type of framing I'd be going for at this time of day. Better to look for shape, form and texture in this light and forget the big sky picture.

Yep, see what you mean Keith. I'll head up there at a better time of day next time, maybe this evening as its sunny out today too. Thank you. Paul

Nice change a daytime photo! Still has humongous foreground rule in effect though eh? :o)
