Great shot - the big stopper did a great job of adding movement to the clouds and turning the sea into a smooth milky mist. Oh and the composition is spot on as well.

A truly beautiful image, Gary. The 10 stopper has done a great job on that sky and the mountains are a great focal point. The colour and detail in the foreground is also striking.

Wonderful shot to be proud of! 10/10 for composition and exposure and colours!

Please share the secret of how you managed to get hold of the Lee Big Stopper - It seems to be out of stock everywhere!

Well I'm sure this shot must be as good as everyone says it is, but am I alone in thinking this genre is now massively overdone? I don't mean to denigrate the photographer's efforts but it seems that at the moment photography is all about trying to outdo one another with these HDR-type images rather that coming up with something original.
It's not obligatory to produce this kind of exaggerated over-dramatized image all the time. Please could we have a little reality once in a while?
