    Quote:beautiful viaduct & water reflection.....amazing viewpoint & visual rhythm Smile

    Many thanks for your kind words, I was very lucky to have perfect conditions and great access from my boat, definitely worth the early start that day Smile

  • Fiercer than the pain that folds you, softer than your sorrow's name

    Not unfamiliar with this kind of image, and a member of the site you mention John, I've had the pleasure of being asked to photograph similar, but for private use. I like that you include this in your portfolio, maybe too much for some people, but I like it, it's more real to me than many a nude photo.

    Quote:I'd actually want to have everything in focus here! And I'd struggle with my 20mm lens on full frame and f/22. Short of a T/S lens, it's very hard work!

    I've uploaded a version without the blur added

  • Wine for one

    Thank you Charisma, I appreciate you taking the time and to comment. I guess had I moved the chairs and the wine glass I'd have a very balanced photo, but I was happy recording what I saw because it was a small reflection of the great night I'd had before Smile

  • Solo seagull

    Thank you Alan, the original has a deep blue Majorcan sky as the backdrop and I took both portrait and landscape photos of the same, I just really enjoyed the starkness of it and the expanse of sky making a stark contrast to the seagull and wall.

  • Whitby Abbey

    Thanks all for you comments and thank you Moira for your suggestions and edits, I'm going to upload the original so you can see where the image started and maybe you could see what you can squeeze out of the original.

    The photo was taken some distance away from the Abbey and with such a wide angle lens the Abbey was miniscule in a vast landscape of tall grass. I was leaning over a wall holding my camera low so that grass loomed large, I just felt with such a vast foreground in front of the Abbey I needed to add a different perspective that would give it a little more gravitas.

  • Whitby harbour

    Hi Dudler, many thanks for your reply. I'm a little fanatical about a level horizon, the only time I see one sloping is from 40'000 ft Wink
