Like the way the red jumps out, and stands out against the grey sea and sky.

This looks good here, fantastic at the larger size. The light picks out the red so well it jumps off the screen at you, lovely work.

Thank you all for your kind words and clicks. So many of you have been complimentary of the light in this shot, it was taken late afternoon, a couple of weeks ago, with the sun quite low in the sky behind and right of camera. To keep the detail in the sky, I have processed this shot twice from RAW, once as shot and secondly at -2 stops, I then used a graduated blend of these two images from half way down the sky area to the apex of the boathouse roof.
Wasnt sure if it should be in the Digitally Manipulated category but all I have actually done is try to reproduce the effect of using a ND Grad filter, hope you dont feel that this is cheating in some way, I feel that its just another way of achieving an effect that has been used for a very long time.


P.S. also applied usual Crop, Levels, Resize, USM.

Beautifully detailed shot, - and thanks for the tech info. Thats a great tip for reproducing an ND grad filter effect!

That 24-85mm lens is a real gem!

And I agree too. Well done.
28 Dec 2004 2:31PM
Nice shot. I don't think it really matters what category it goes into, but landscape /travel is probably more appropriate if you look at the kind of shots which normally appear in digitally manipulated (which tend to be images that either look intentionally "unreal" or have had something added). Either way the light is great!

Lovely image. I've got a shot of the lifeboat station in similar conditions from last February, been meaning to upload it for a while but you've beaten me to it now!
Yours is better anyway! ...congrats on a great picture

A lovely photo of a beautiful place, personally it doesnt matter to me whether you use a grad filter on-camera or later on the PC, photography is an art and it's the end result that matters and this is a very good photograph.
Great work.

Hi Adrian, love this capture, it's a very well composed view. Like the way the coures come together, especially the red of the walkway. Did you take this from the arcade??

Almost Richard, just a little way back toward Nab Rock where the railings end and the wall starts.

Thanks for your comments today on this and others from my portfolio.
