Thornwick Bay

By digicammad  
Spent a very enjoyable 4 hours at Thornwick Bay last night, thanks to Keithh for the tip on good locations. I'm glad to say the weather was excellent, though I managed to make up for that by getting too close to the surf at one time. Anyway, I found out just how quick cargo pants and a t-shirt dry. Smile

I have about 4 to post, in no particular order. I think this one may be my favourite. No PS work other than cloning out a couple of dust spots and tinkering with the curves a little.

Thanks for taking the time to look, all comments very welcome.

well done, Ian....I'm afraid the sky and touches of the rock are over-processed for me though.
digicammad 12 22.0k 37 United Kingdom
10 Aug 2007 6:15PM
Thanks Conrad.

Keith I know what you mean but the cause isn't really over processing. The sky is straight from Photomatix and regardless of what tone mapping settings I used it was pretty much like that. It must be some sort of wierd interference pattern. What I should have done was to blend one of the source images, so I suppose you could say it is under processed. Smile Think I'll have a go at that when I get a minute.

This is the kind of shot i was hoping for when i went out to the coast recently, unfortunately mine failed :- (

This is really nice and is worthy of a frame and a place on the lounge wall, nice one mate!
