A Night To Be Alone

By pmorgan  
Another one from Monday night at Whitsand bay in Cornwall. I used a polariser and an ND grad to get a 60 second exposure.

One of my favourites this, so I hope it goes down well with you folks!

This is outstanding, Paul. I can see why it's one of your favourites. The wide angle format complements the striking composition, with the dramatic rock feature pointing the eye towards that long exposured sky. Fabulous.

Lovely. Composition is excellent. Love the milky waters and blurred cloud movement caused by the long exposure.

Absolutely beautiful, great f/g rock & shingle, water & cloud movement giving soft pastel colours. A print on the wall would look good.

Very nice indeed, Paul.
It has a wonderful serenity, and the choice of 60 seconds really works well.
Did you use the polariser just for the couple of stops longer, or for the colour as well?

Both Bill - really pulled out the blues, so much so in fact that I had to desaturate by about 15% !

What gorgeous colours! really like the cloud movement & the results from the long exposure, always worth experimenting with different conditions as you can never quite tell what you will end up with!
