Porthnanven Patience

By MrsS    
Good Evening! I hope you are all well.

Experienced the joys of train travel for approx 12v hours over the last three days - went to visit my dad, who is 90 years young. Smile

Anyway, this is from the dreaded boulders at Porthnanven - a Big Stopper shot into the sun - I must be bonkers! Wink

I'm sure you'll let me know if you agree! Grin

Thanks for your time - have a great evening - the push to get ready for school starts here - back on Monday! Smile

Great tonal range, i like the colours, the detail in the clouds, the movement and the stones at the bottom. I think it is worh a crop even if the cloud detail at the very top goes, so i suggest a ground emphasis for a more powerful picture, it gives more impact at first sight.

Great image, how do you control the flare in something like this? Does the 10 stop help or hinder...just got one myself...

Wow this is stunning.

Thanks Barbara, Saeid, Razvan, Carol, MrEEK (I think!), Kingsley, Steffen, Ant, Mark, Scott, Adrina & Mark Smile

Just spotted her myself, Carol - thanks for 'pointing' that out! Smile

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Martin! I expected nothing less! Wink

10 stoppers are great fun, Steffen, enjoy! Smile

Mark, I just experiment with exposures until I get one I like. at least into the sun they're not too long!!! (Did have a few that didn't work tho') Wink

Cheers All!

The big stopper has worked its magic Fran and you have kept the detail in the sky exceptionally well.
Absolutely stunning!
