Thanks to those that gave comments & critique on my previous upoload. Seems the colour popping didn't go down too well. As I mentioned in my original post the evening was late when I arrived at Talisker and the shots turned out quite dark. The sands of Talisker are black n white so there is not much colour but it does lend itself to some lovely patterns n stuff...The seaweed was a slick green colour. I was able to extract some detail through HDR and then turn into mono leaving the brightly coloured buoy I though might give it some impact...it did but not in a favourable way...there you go
Cassiecat asked to see the colour version so I am posting it for viewing but I will post for critique rather than allow people to c&c.
Lesley, I have toned down the buoy but for me now looking at the original out of the camera it looks unnatural.
