South Coast Drama

A seascape full of drama developed yesterday as I braved a freezing cold beach on the South Coast,still I think it was worth it.
These were taken just as sunset was approaching, I know that technically there are one or two blown bits but I hope that I can be forgiven these in the circumstances
With the exception of a curves adjustment and crop they are just as they came out of the can.

Re: South Coast Drama

The second one is really very nice indeed, a lovely simple scene.

Re: South Coast Drama

I am really very jealous. Fantastic shots, especially no.2. Well worth braving the elements.

Re: South Coast Drama

I don't find the blown highlights a problem but prefer the first shot unlike just about everyone else.

Re: South Coast Drama

Thanks for all the comments, it was really hard packing up my gear as I had lost the use of most of my fingers due to the cold

There is also a lesson to be learned about using an aliminium tripod in sub zero temperatures
