The light is stunning again in this but don't think it works as well as the last shot which was wonderful. I think it's the way the cliff is kind of centralised with almost equal gaps at each end and the dominant rock in the FG is also in the centre and bang on a 3rd. It's kind of too ordered if that makes sense? Hope that sounds constructive as it is still a nice image?

Looks just as good to me, Leigh, as your previous uploads of this delightful location.

Beautiful shot. Wonderful light with an excellent fg. I took a look at your two other images from Saltburn beach and imo the landscape format works a bit better. This feels like it wants to be a wider image to me.

Thanks everyone. definitely agree with you Den and Greg - I struggled to try to get the fg rocks in off-centre, and the cliff with plenty of space, but couldn't get it, so this was the compromise. Paced all around the area trying to get the best composition, but this was as good as I could get in a portrait format at the time. I must admit, I nearly always forget the possibility of moving things like rocks - that would probably have given me much more potential for a decent composition. Must try to remember that. Smile

Lovely image and super evening light. For me there is a tad too much space at the bottom . . . . how about a square format rather than a portrait one?

nice light & colours Leigh & the foreground works well but for me the cliffs & pub are to near the edge of the frame & as you say you struggled to get them exactly in the right place in the shot.

Oh Leigh do I get to give you #30 for yet another excellent image? The portrait format works well here and the colour is quite stunning!

Like it but not as much as the last two and its the format that is better landscape

Thanks everyone. Of course - fitting a wide, narrow cliff into a portrait format was never going to work as well as landscape I guess, unless I was way round to one side to shorten the perspective, and the fg interest wasn't there.

lovely image but imo would work better in landscape to follow the line of the distant hill, but i am only new to this so may be totally wrong.

Hi Leigh, love the colours and formatt ,but tend to agree with others .
My advice would have been to lose the ship inn and turn a wee bit more to the left ,so that you have a bit more space where the cliff ends.
Don't take this wrongly as this is a very good image,and i am the first to seek advice...Smile

Ah, yes, thanks Ollie. I was so determined to get the ship inn in shot, but you are right - losing it would have allowed a much better composition.
