Stark and wonderful. Reckon B&W would be good for this.

A beautifully composed and taken photo. Was the slight curvature of the water-line a conscious decision to keep in?

Thanks, Alan. Yes, I deliberately didn't correct the distortion. The Zeiss 21mm which I used for this shot is the sharpest lens I've ever used, but it does exhibit a fair bit of distortion. On the other hand, that's a characteristic of many wide angles and it's not something that disturbs me personally in a wide angle view... though I know there are plenty of others who take the opposite point of view. I think in this shot, it looks worse than it is, because of the shape of the land mass on the horizon.

I don't see the distortion as a fault because it gives the image an energy, a crossbow-like tension that would be missing without it.

It would be good to see your work large on this site as the detail and other qualities would shine out. I've been to the Quarr Gallery in Swanage quite a few times and I always look out for your photographs. It's one of the reasons I got back into taking photos again.

That's interesting... must admit, I hadn't seen it like that.
