Berrow Down headland

By mikewatson
This photo was taken last weekend at Brean sands showing Berrow Down headland. It was a really windy afternoon but the light was in favour.
The headland is important as a former 2nd world war look out. On the far right is an old fortress used at that time but now derelict.
The photo was taken with my Nikon D80 using a Sigma 17-70mm lens; F8 @ 1/500 and ISO 100.
I have processed the raw file in Adobe Photoshop and added a little levels and sharpness with high pass filter.
I do try to get it right in the camera but this is not always achieved, so some Photoshop help is needed sometimes.

It's a competently taken shot Mike. Good exposure both for the sky and the foreground. The sky has lots of beautiful tones. There look like some interesting patterns in the sand - perhaps somebody has driven over it ? I would tried to make more of this feature - perhaps get down a bit lower to give you a different perspective.

best wishes

Thanks both for your comments.
As I was taking the photo there were sand buggies going up and down the beach which contributed to the lines in the sand.

You have obviously selected and darkened the sky, but not blended it well with the foreground. There is a white line all the way across the image between sky and foreground. The result is also a slightly flat image which could actually be very pleasant.
