absolutely - very gloomy indeed. Great photo and think the grain added in PS really adds to the photo - makes it look older.

Well Done - Donna

You have made this look as if it were taken years ago - it really is full of atmosphere.
-ve Is that horizon sloping to the left?

PS - it is one of my main failings and one I have to correct in nearly all of my sea shots.

This is a great idea and image...I would have just packed up and gone home and missed this. Just shows what a bit of thought and a good eye can do.
pps. I fall into this trap myself Jim...SnapSad

Wahey - 22 clicks - my best result yet!!!!

Thanks to all those who took the time and trouble to comment. A few responses from me:

Tony - Cove Harbour is a tiny Fisherman's cove near Cockburnspath on the Scottish Borders. Very photogenic area, was used for the opening scene of 'Mrs Brown'.
It's a very easy place to find - head up the A1 from Berwick on Tweed, after about 40 minutes you'll come to a roundabout signposted left for Cockburnspath, right for Pease Bay. Turn right, and 50 yards from the roundabout you'll see a sign on the left for Cove harbour.

Jim - On your 'sloping horizon' point. You're right, it does slope to the left. Not sure if it's caused by barrel distortion though, as the lens was set to wide angle. When I tried to correct it, the rest of the photograph looked odd. Perhaps the answer is not to use such a wide angle setting?

Gwyn - My personal profile - Hhhm, probably wasn't a good idea to write it when I was under the affluence of inchohol. Must get round to change it someday. Glad it gave you a laff!

Thanks again folks - I emerge into the world this Thursday morning a brighter and more confident bloke!
