[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
As a follow up to my last post this is another composition of Fair Head taken last November and although this one was also captured early in the morning it has a completely different mood to my previous shot.

Great land/seascape image Stephen.
Beautiful depth with the stones in the foreground leading the eye perfectly in to the wonderful moody scene.
Excellent vertical composition and use of slow shutter speed to soften the water nicely.
Also love the soft color tones and the frame you did put around the image very muc.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice weekend,

Its amazing how different these places can look at different times.
I'd hardly recognise it as the same place.
very interesting comparison.
Cheers, Steve

Have a great weekend mf,

Hi Stephen, Lovely shot mate really good dof, water movement is spot on with good colour saturation, very nice. Cheers Rick

Hi Stephen,
great POV and super sharp througout, the splash of red in the FG links to the cliffs in the BG nicely. Great shot.

Hi Stephen

I like this shot with the silky water and subtle tones. Totally different from your last post of the same scene. Excellent to see the differences. Thank you MF. :-)

Boy, timing is everything... meaning the light is everything in photography. What a difference. I feel the shutter speed was a little too slow for my taste as the water is distractingly white... but I am obviously in the minority on this point. : ) I always enjoy your work and love what you do with that lens.

Stephen, this is very beautiful.

Excellent sharpness, composition and colors. I like saturation and contrast too.

Another excellent shot.

Hi Stephen,
This is beautiful! I love the soft silky water effect and the rocks lead the eye into the image nicely! I like the soft colours and the framing sets it all off really well! Well done and TFS
Cheers Tina :-)

Hi Stephen

Again very nice Seascape from you, i like the effect of long exposure!!


Hello Stephen,
Lovely seascape i liked the effect of slow shutter speed and the low angle.
simply amazing affect on the eyes.

Hi Steve,
What a bit of sun can do to the mood of a photo. This surely does look like it was taken on a different time of the day.
I like the motion in the breaking waves and how some of the colors in the FG rock return in the distant cliff.
