The Last Cast

By brian1208
We went on an "Old Farts Coach Trip" yesterday and one of the places we visited was Portland where we had some goodly nosh at the Lobster-Pot the waited for a "Glorious Sunset".

The sunset was a bit of a wash-out but I managed this + a couple more shots which I thought had potential so I'm putting it up for some Critiquing.

Feel free to pull it apart, modify or provide other feedback - all welcomed

(Please look at Large Version as its a waste of space small)

Nothing to pull apart here Brian.
All the elements sit nicely in the frame.

You're right it needs to be looked at larger - the rock looks a bit light in the small version, but big I think the whole thing works really well.

Thanks for the input Andy, Jimmy, Sam and Sue.

I've re-processed and made a slight mod to the development, putting the rock slightly darker and increased the impact of the sun + reflection a touch. It's probably not enough to make it posting here as a mod though.

I wasn't too sure of the composition, which is why I put it up for a crit - but you gave me the confidence to "tweak it" and run a print on A3+ paper and it looks excellent.

(One more for my next craft market! Smile

Glad the sun shone on you.
Classic Bill shot that suits the pano arrangement with the sun where it is.
It's one of the few places in the UK where you can see sunrise and sunset over water, (this time of year anyway).
A couple of weeks earlier and you would have found 20 epz-ers there, but not for sunset. (There wasn't one, so you've done better than we did.)

Thanks Penny - I would have liked to have joined you all, but family insisted on visiting and I'm told they must take priority! Smile

(Mind you - I've still got a crease on top of my head from the concrete lintel of your hut on my last visit, ouch!)
