Elgol's Moods X

By Dennis_Bromage
Another shot from my trip to Elgol earlier in the year. I know every man and his dog has shot this wall including the great Joe Cornish and I was determined not to make an image of it but I was there for over 8 hours and at this point in the afternoon it just seemed to suite the conditions so I caved in!

Not original which is why I didn't upload it at the time but I do like it so think it's worthy of an upload. Hope you agree Smile

Oh LARGE is VERY LARGE on this one and has bags of detail too...

Thanks for looking and enjoy your evening, Top Gear in 35 mins Smile

Captures the essence of the place perfectly Smile Tide has never been in that far when we've been there. It makes it so much easier to include the cliff in the scene. Going to hang about for high tide next time Smile

A very atmospheric image and as I've stood on that very spot an emotive one. My only gripe is the right side rockface appears a little "cartoony" on my monitor and dosent fit in with the rest of this stunning image.

Hi Gary. I'm intrigued by your comment especially as you've spent time at Elgol. What do you mean Cartoony? Do you mean the wall looks over processed? I've just looked at the original RAW file and the only thing I did when processing the image was give it a gentle 'S' curve. I didn't make any local adjustments to the wall or any other part of the image. It does look very heavy and dark but that was how I remember it being when I was there, probably because there was heavy rain clouds overhead?

I don't know where Elgol is, and I don't recognise 'the wall', so to me this just looks like a fantastic image, with a great composition, nice timing on the water, and lovely detail throughout. Who could avoid taking the most obviously great composition, just because others have before? Not me, for sure.
Congrats on the HC. Well deserved.

Large is good, rich in detail. Well worth the effort here Den.

Well if it's cartoony, it's something Walt would have been proud of. Nicely done on the slippery rocks round here. Congrats on the HC, don't remember getting one of them.

Hi Dennis, hope my comment didn't offend. I was trying to describe how that area looked to me on my monitor, the same sort of effect that a HDR sometimes gives,almost graphic not photographic? I had wrongly assumed that you'd overprocessed the wall and thought it had spoilt the image, which I actually think is superb.Strangely enough this has happened to me at Rannoch Moor in certain lighting conditions and some images appeared "painted" almost. I wonder if digital sensors sometimes render light too well and take on a different character to that captured on film which many of us have become so used to over the years. Probably "cartoony" was the wrong description?
Anyway at least its sparked some interesting opinion rather than the usual bland comments we are all sometimes guilty of on here.
I 'm a big fan of your work Dennis but not very good at constructive critique!! Smile
Best regards

Hi Gary. Wasn't offended by your comment I was actually pleased that somebody had given an honest opinion. I was just genuinely intrigued as to what you meant.

Maybe it just looks different to how you remember it when you were there, which could be down to the light?

Cheers
