An outstanding image Simon, such wonderful use of light. Whenever I see these fishermen and their coromorants now they remind me of the HSBC advert

Top work Si !

Have you tried cloning out the really bright middle bit ( I think its an arm) to just allow the natural arc of his jacket to freefow ?

Might be an idea , then you get that wonderful diagonal light from the boat to his face to the hills beyond.

Si - it was really difficult to choose which one of your images to award this week, I would award all of them if I could!
Anyway I think that this one has to be my favourite so please accent my 'Star' award to add to the many others Smile
