In my oppinion just a bit to narrow for letterbox format to make this work!
This might be superb printed big but it's hard to do them justice on a site like this as they need to be seen much bigger.
I do think the railing is totally superfluous and very distracting. It does in the photo what it's supposed to do in real life, and acts as a barrier into viewing the image
I think the conditions were against you here Lee as the cliffs are so distant they are getting lost in the hazy light. Maybe some really nice winter light could have cut through it possibly.
I do not think the railing adds much either. All it serves to show is that the horizon is not straight.
With this kind of lighting b and w often comes into its own. In my mod I have boosted the contrast to really bring out the whites and then converted to b and w using the "enhance" menu. I have also tried to retify the sloping horizon using the edit>transform>skew tool.
Good subject for a panorama but I have to agree with Trev in this instance. To me the image looks to long & thin. I have to stress that Iím no expert in either photography or the construction of panoramic images. However I have dabbled a bit and have found that I have been more satisfied with the results when taking the images in a vertical format & stitching no more than 6 to 8. I endeavour to keep the depth of the image to the maximum 650 pixles whenever I can to give the pano more depth.
You have not said how you have constructed your image however.
I would also have removed the handrail (Cloned out), plus I would have liked to see more detail. (Just a personal preference).
As I say, Iím still an outright beginner at all of this, so feel free to disagree and ignore.
Thanks for the feedback guys, Cath I like the b&w version, The railing is the harbour breakwater.
rpba, the panorama is a feature that my camera does automatically, press the button and pan. The breakwater edited out does look better, I may try another shot of that with more zoom next time I am in at this Harbour.
I have only had the camera a week and am just getting to grips with what it can do and how to use an SLR/T having only really used a compact point and shoot before.
