I liked this first time round, and still like it. You'd be hard pressed to get a better picture of Marske than this.

Thanks Si , I appreciate the sentiment., it took a lot of effort and patience before I got what I was after because it was a nightmare to take and stitch without distortion as well as burnt out sunlight patches on the windows. This was my third visit having learned from my mistakes on the other two occasions.

I'm adopting the same approach with the return visits. It pays in the end. But this really is the best of Marske. You managed to keep the cars out, which, as you know, I don't like. Great stuff.

Cheers Clive, I know what you mean about the Med feel to this, I think some of that comes from the red and cyan boats too. That low morning sunlight was a nightmare but without it the scene is nothing , especially as it creates that shadow which is essential to break up that large expanse of otherwise unintersting sand. The shadow edge creates the lead in and that nice S shape through the scene which I wanted , the bottom part of which was created in photshop to ensure it :o) . The shares enjoyment and praise make the effort worth it , thank you for your lovely comment.

best wishes, Sam :o)

Hve to say that all your photos are winners! The imagery in them captures the eye!

Another nice one, do you shoot raw files?... I really like the quality of your work!

All the best, Nick

Cheers Lex and apologies for the late reply.

AlwaysNick, j.peg just doesn't cut it for me. All digital images need a touch of editing to find the contrast and dynamic range so it has to be raw to have all the info needed for that. When I first started out I never knew this and the fact that jpegs get knackered when tweaked. I wrecked most of my early images before realising where I was going wrong. I'm pleased to read you like what I do now though as a result of those hard learned lessons.

Cheers :o)
