Birling Gap

By Cobberpix
I took this when visiting these white cliffs on the coast of Sussex. Although I live reasonably close to here this was my first ever visit. What is it about not looking at what is on your own doorstep?

Well done the person makes this picture man and landscape.

I agree, it's the person that makes the shot. Fabulous.

Nice to see just a detail 'portrait' section of the the cliffs - the wide angle 'landscape' is generally the normal view.

The beach at bottom left is a bit dark BUT with the white of the chalk you have done extremely well in balancing the overall exposure.

One small point - spelling ! It should be Birling - suggest you change it for the 'TAG' as your image would not come up in a search otherwise.

Nice to see someone paying attention to more than just the wide view. And having a person in the shot is a nice bonus. It certainly gives a sense of proportions.

Lovely shot and the person in the photo adds a feeling of scale.

Thanks all...I nearly binned this as I didn't know the benefits of shooting in RAW when I took it. It is only a smallish jpeg so I'm going back there again for another go.
