You can almost see.....

.... Wales!
This one framed itself through the railings on Blue Anchor sea front. Devil of a job to focus through the rails to get the boat though! I gave up on the Welsh coast - I think it is about 12 miles across the water from here.
I know it's not straight (I blame the flat tyre on the car - that's why I was sat there so long!) but thought it might amuse.

A fine shot. Of course it is straight-- its the railings that are curved.

Not your usual shot but it is good well framed up
You should have switched to manual focus

A bit different from you Bev, well focused and a fairly clear day to see so much of Wales. Love the sky in this one.
Is it my eyes or has the Bristol Channel gone a funny colour?!

Thank you very much all for your C's + C's, I'm so suprised that a quirky shot has actually got clicks! Well appreciated!
Mmm .... did go a funny colour didn't it Soom, I didn't expect anything but mud colour as it is always so filthy - it's only telly progs that get a blue sea here!
Smile
Thankyou again all

Nice composition but needs some slight colour correction - too much cyan in the sky and too much magenta in the sea ?
See my mod - although I've overdone the sky.

Thank you all again,
Andy thanks for the mod, the sea does look better - it is always a reddish mud here and I can never get it to look natural, how did you do it so I can have a bash myself?

I believe theoretically the best way of colour correcting is to use curves in Photoshop a bit complex but there are many tutorials out on the web explaining this. For a quick fix I prefer to use a SELECTIVE COLOUR adjustment layer and alter the balance of each colour individually I pulled out a lot of the magenta in the red and yellow to return the sea to it's natural colour. A really good website for simple but effective PS adjustments is www.radiantvista.com there are some great video tutorials there. Check out the ESSENTIAL ADJUSTMENT LAYERS tutorial in the video tutorial section.
