Hey Alex, nice to see you back, good shadows and texture to the sand. IMHO the sun is a little overpowering

Thanks Tony and Malcolm.

This is a series of shots I was going to put into HDR but it never really came out right mainly because of the sun. That's when I decided to make the sun the subject of the image. This is the best of the series as it is the darkest I could go while still retaining foreground detail.

I guess we'll see how it goes down with Joe Public as it's been put into an exhibition at The Huddersfield Art gallery in late March. It is a collection of 4 shots covering the different light at Spurn Point as the sun rises on this particular day.
