A joy to look at Stephen (like always :)
It is wonderful this way, but I would not mind to see it in colour too.
The choice of the f value is just perfect for this composition, crisp clear from near to horizon. Exposure beautiful too. Thanks MF.

Excelent seaside scene, with that atmosphere created with the mist.
I enjoy a lot your b/w post, getting the most of the ligth and shadows values.

Another splendid coast shot from you!
I really like the usage of the black&white here - it gives a lot of drama and enhances the picture's atmosphere a lot.
Also the DOF is very impressive - you managed to get the sharpest possible details and textures in the FG rocks but still keep nice details to the grant cliff from the BG.
Also the overall look of the water is great and has a totaly different "feeling" in b&w.
Bravo and TFS

A very dramatic, well composed pic that displays good composition, POV, Sharpness and detail.

A very stunning B/W photo with a beatiful view on the cliff. I am a bit confused, or maybe I am thinking too much. It looks like the sun is just behind the cliff, but your EXIF file indicates it is early morning. When I see the water on the right and since I know where this is, you must have been facing north-west. SO where was the sun?
Your POV and framing are awesome.

Wow, what an awesome picture ! I love the atmosphere of this picture. Composition and POV are truly splendid, with those rocks in the foregrounds and these beautiful cliffs in the BG. Black and whiote was an excellent choice here, it adds a dramatic feeling to the picture. Very well done !

Excellent B&W Steve.
Perfect shot for it IMHO. Very nice FG detail and focus, with the tonal range perfect of this as I said..
Check out Rick Sammon's :)
Have a nice weekend,

The B&W brings out these great textures very well. Another interesting long exposure, too. Beauty!
You can get 11mm with stacked filters, eh? I think I can only get 12mm.

Stunning image. The composition here is great (I would however crop it a bit from the top) In my opinion it would look even better.
The B&W works great here - which conversion method did you use here ?

Nice b/w work. Looks likes a dream's image...almost unreal.
Composition is excellent and choice of low exposure time was perfect here, giving this blurry effect on water.
Ireland seems a paradise for photographers...
Thanks for sharing this.

This looks great in B&W. It certainly adds to the drama of the picture and the B&W tonal range is excellent. I love the vertical composition, the FG details, the light and the soft water
