Peter Miller from Lichfield, United Kingdom

Dave, thanks for your comment, here is copy of reply on my post

"Cheers Dave, after some investigation it could also be that the images are slightly out of line as the haloing is not all around, I will keep a tighter reign on my tripod"

6 Mar 2009 12:00pm

@Peter Miller: Thanks Peter. I doubt its your tripod, as usualy you notice anymisalignment once you tonemap the image (I'm assuming you're using photomatix), and I can't see any in your shot. If you can on your camera, check the histogram after you've taken your bracketed shots to make sure you've no clipping at either end, and make sure you've captured a decent amount of highlight info!

Ronnie 2¢ from London, United Kingdom

These shots really capture the unsuppressed feeling of this part of the coast. Again, your processing is so well balanced.

6 Mar 2009 12:22pm

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks Ronnie

Lee from Fort Frances Ontario, Canada

Ana Lúcia from Leiria, Portugal

Nice one again! Vibrant contrasting colors.

6 Mar 2009 9:16pm

@Ana Lúcia: Thanks Ana Lucia

Tony Duque from Raleigh, United States

Wonderful shot, Dave! So brooding but so bright... great geology (notes the geologist)... great colors, especially the water and the rocks... incredible detail, near and far. I'll assume this benefited from HDR, but that's not at all evident, which means you've nailed it! Thanks for sharing your terrific picture!

6 Mar 2009 10:12pm

@Tony Duque: Thanks Tony, the rocks are Devonian slates with a relatively high copper concentration; gives the water a great colour!

socketless from Canberra, Australia

This is such a wonderful shot! Such different emotions from the hint colours of the cliff to the moody sky.

7 Mar 2009 3:12am

@socketless: Thanks Socketless

Brett from McAllen, United States

Fantastic shot. I am just starting to learn HDR and have not always been right on what shots would look good in HDR/Tonemapping, but you nailed it on this one. I especially like how the rock leads your eye towards the horizon. It's wonderful.

7 Mar 2009 4:40am

@Brett: Thanks Brett

Suzanne from Huntington Bch, California, United States

Magnificent seascape. I love the dark, stormy quality and the beautiful detail in the rocks.

Francesco Gallarotti from Long Island, New York, United States

Absolutely spectacular! I love the geometry of the composition, with the rocks ideally extending into the horizon, towards the bad weather, almost daring the unknown.

11 Mar 2009 3:57am

@Francesco Gallarotti: Thanks Francesco

Addey Kehinde from London, United Kingdom

Excellent, simply!

Alivia from Saint-Etienne, France

Quelle atmosphère surréaliste, quelle irréalité, on flotte en plein rêve , dans un autre monde .. la perspective immense des rochers si contrastés conduit aux nuages, un ciel si bas et lourd qu'il semblerait vouloir rejoindre l'océan, quelle superbe composition, si riche en couleurs extêmes, quelle ouverture sur l'émeraude des flots, c'est somptueux .. mille bravos.. c'est trop beau !!!

11 Mar 2009 8:26pm

@Alivia: Remercie Alivia, vos mots font plus de justice à ma photo qu'il mérite
