The Way Down

By BillyGoatGruff  
As my last upload did so well (lol), I thought I'd put another nail in my coffin by uploading another mono shot, no doubt destined for digital oblivion. Wink
This is Three Cliffs Bay on the Gower Peninsula, South Wales.
It's actually a resized jpeg of a resized jpeg, as all my original RAWS and tiffs are still, so far, irredeemably unaccessible on my broken back-up drive: what a bore :-(

Manual blend of three exposures to try and cope with the gigantic DR (taken into the sun), and then channel mixer and selective contrast tweaks and finally converted to quadtone and cropped for composition.

Hope you like it (which , somehow, I doubt), and thanks for stopping by to have a look.

Cheers and have good w/e.

I like the way you are drawn through the image, and the light on the water. I hope you are able to recover your images.

Nice one Bill. The B+W conversion works well, and I do like the foreground detail. Keeping the sky to a minimum was probbly the right decision too.
