I woke up a bit early this morning and the sky showed potential so I nipped off to the coast and was rewarded with quite a nice sky for my efforts.

Fantastic shot, and very peaceful, Barry! The vignette pulls the eye right to the pier, but I do wonder what it would look like without the vignette?

Thanks Chris, the vignette on the left is a natural by product of the dynamic range. All I've done is add in some shadow detail from a +1 ev shot into the lifeboat station and foreground rocks. Here is the RAW file.

I'd try fix the vingette effect slightly - but otherwise lovely.

I might have suggested using a long exposure to smooth the reflection out a bit - but this is still top drawer stuff

Your usual style and quality Barry. Don't know if it was intentional or not but the offshore tanker looks like it could have launched off the slipway.

Thanks Scott.

I wandered backwards and forwards along the rock ledge to see whether it worked best blocked from view or not and decided I preferred it in view. Ideally I would have stepped back a bit further to increase the separation a little more but theres a deeper channel of water a few feet behind where i was stood so I couldn't without risking another drowned camera.

That was worth the effort getting out for Barry.
