Hartland

By pmorgan  
Colin(elkiebrooks) and I made a 4 hour round trip to North Devon yesterday to meet up with Ian Munro, Phil Morgan, ge22y, Outlander and Poochie. While we were there we also bumped into Paul_Forgham and JohnFanning which was an added bonus! (great to meet you all chaps Smile)

This is the first one from the evening that I finished processing at 12.40 this morning – got to get in there quick, as the site’s going to be full of shots from here over the next few days! Wink

This sets a high standard for the rest of us to follow Paul. So much for getting home to the wife and relaxing. Me..I had a pie and a pint, watched MOTD a bit and then went to bed. Thanks for the lift and the great evening out.

Hi Paul
Really like this. I have often wondered about going to this place as I reckon I could get there in a few hours. Is it obvious where to go to?

Sorry to ask but I am assuming you need the tide to be somewhere between high and low?

Yes, that's right - too high and you can't get to the rocks, even if you could they'll be under water, and too low you wont get the water movement through the "fingers"

You are kidding me, Paul. Now I understand how much further I need to improve on my processing. That is unbelievable!
Cheers for putting it up mate.
pmorgan 10 217 13 England
25 Sep 2011 10:08PM
Cheers Cole - I just like to work an image until it looks either like it did with the eye on the night (as you know RAW files are always flat and lifeless), or boost them a bit to push the drama and mood.

Congrats on all the awards Paul, and I expect more to come, very well deserved. It is amazing how you managed to extract so much light and detail from the RAW. You're really a master.

An absolute belter of an image. Cheers for putting up the RAW too, makes me feel slightly better about my capture methods but my processing has miles to go to get a result like this.
Hope the Valleys boys behaved themselves. that big Trooper bloke sometimes gets in your way. Wink

You've set the bar high with this one Paul, startling end result, from RAW to AWE! Great to bump into you and the gang down there, I thought about you all making the long journey home as I strolled the leisurely 20 yds to our digs Tongue
