Hi Stephen

And another of this beautiful series. I shall have to look at B&W photography more before I leave in 3 weeks to see if I can try some on my holiday... any tips?

Great shot with excellent detail and wonderful wave action leaving wisps of 'smoke'.

Hello Stephen,
Fantastic composition. B&W is just a right way of expression here. I like very much the dynamic waves and dramatic sky, not mentoning the thrilling light :-)
Best greetings,

Hi Steve,
This is excellent, a fantastic moody image, full of atmosphere. There's a real sense of movement in the water, the water running off the rock in the centre really gives a sense of the 'heave' of the tide. Great detail and excellent exposure, B&W is a good choice. Definitely one of the most atmospheric images I've seen here.

Very interesting panorama Steve.
Some of the hills look almost pyramid like.
Yery moody shot.

Hi Stephen,
Brilliant photo, the water is wonderful it almost looks like a painting until I look at the clouds and mountains in the BG.
Great shot,

Hi Steve,
The movement of the sea in between the rock in the FG is really wonderful. It is nice and smooth, but still with great texture. The mood of the B&W is more appealing then it would be with a colored version.
