St Michael's Mount

By RockArea  
The tide was coming in fast, there were people out on the causeway and there was another photographer who's shot I didn't want to block. When the opportunity arose I went out as far as I dared allowing for waves.

The sun wasn't up high enough to light the front of the island very well and there was a building wrapped in plastic sheeting which spoilt the view and needed a bit of cloning/simulation to overcome.

So here it is, it's a tried and tested viewpoint but one that can always stand another airing.

Thanks for looking. If you have the time to make a comment I'd appreciate your thoughts.

Good work. The light on the causeway and the slight blurring to the water works well.

the low view point works well and the lighting/ saturation gives it something a little differnt too.

Some terrific detail in the causeway, and a super viewpoint. I think you did well in the low light.

Excellent composition and viewpoint. I would be tempted to lift the colour balance ever so slightly to bring out the tones in the fg, then a slight curve adjustment.

Well braved for a nice shot
