Cornish Split

By knackeredoldman  
Hi Guys,

I thought I'd take a different tack after my visit to the dark side with my last post and go for something altogether more subtle. :o) I often find that shots like this appeal less to TOGs than ones with big FG interest so it will be interesting to see what you guys think.

We did have a Jolly Holiday after all and the sunsets were actually quite lovely most of the time.

These rocks were apparently used in the opening credits of 'die another day' and this is Holywell Bay near Newquay.

Thanks for looking all and as usual all comments and feedback gratefully received.

I like this a lot. It's very subtle but the colours are beautiful.

Thanks Morgs.

I'm glad you commented on the colours. I processed this on a new machine and I like the colours too but when I view them on an uncalibrated, or inferior screen they looked very disappointing.

I have now checked the printed output though and also got the esteemed Mr. Tyny..(something welsh name meaning 'photo taker') to have a look over the file too before I uploaded it as a quick sanity check and he gave it the thumbs up as well :o) - so with you on board too, I'm a happy man.

Thanks for the plug, Ade. I need all the help I can get. :O) I really liked it the first time I saw it and nothing has changed. It's a beautiful exposure and the complementary hues provide a sense of harmony throughout. Top notch.

The glow of reflected light on the sandy beach really makes this for me. Nice one.

I love this, we were down in Newquay last weekend and this sums the place up perfectly. The colours are lovely and soft and very natural, well captured.

Love this. Great pastel colours and composition is perfectly harmonious. Nice bit of light on the foreground sand.
