Dark Clouds over New Brighton 2

By Anthony      
Hi guys and gals

Went to the beach, the sky was scary. Lots of people there, so they must be enjoying the "sun". It is nice and warm though, so thats a bonus.

Shot with my Canon 30D, raw, my 17 - 85 IS USM lens, and 1 medium ND grad on the front.

F16, about 1/40th second, 100 ISO, at about 17 mm.

I have done a little dodging and burning to enhance the sky, boosted a few bits and pieces.

Hey presto, one fabulous image of an EPZ landmark.

Any comments are welcome, feel free to enjoy the large version, my gift to you.

Have fun
