To infinity and beyond!

This was my first attempts at shooting in raw, athough we tell customers all the time to do it and explain the benefits I hadn't really ventured into the realms of raw... so tips and hints and constructive critism please. Love the vivid blues, it was also my first trip to Flamborough,(landscapes aren't usually my thing either so be gentle ha ha)and found it to be an amazing place.

Well done for taking the plunge into RAW. A whole world of options awaits. I like the subject and composition, but think the light was not in your favour. There is one problem that I can see and that is through the rock arch there is an obvious halo effect that's been introduced at some stage in your processing of the image, perhaps you have feathered the selection in that area a little too much.

Nice to see you practice what you preach Leanne. Playing around with the contrast and sharpening tools would help bring out the textures in this.
I like to use the RAW software to produce several tiff file with varying exposure etc. Then combine these together to control the light throughout the scene. It's a bit like using a grad, but a lot more controlled.

A lovely shot that I don't think the thumbnail does justice to. The harsh light produced difficult conditions, and this isa good effort. I love the deep blue. I'd agree with Alan - just a few tweaks of contrast, sharpness etc. I'd also suggest sweeping a low-opacity dodge brush over the stones on the ground to lift them a bit from the darkness. and maybe a tiny boost in saturation, but shielding it from the already-saturated blue sky areas.

Just my thoughts, lovely shot anyway

wow thats what I wanted lots of advice, although now I think I have a lot more to learn about photoshop as I use levels and contrast sometimes saturation, Thanks all for your comments. Lea
