    Abersoch at Low Tide

    I tried several edits of this, but came back to almost what came out of the camera. The sailing boats just catch the last rays of sunshine before the rain clouds close in.

    Which tells you that you captured the vision that was in your head at the time you captured it and didn't need to spend lots of time in post-processing to create it (the vision).

    Wonderful sense of depth, taking us back to that wonderful sky over the far-away headland.

    Thanks for the comments Donald. Although it is fun editing it is often so much more satisfying creating an image in the camera that does not need it.

    Hi Chris,

    Yep, it works for me too

    I always think there's a lot of "luck" to getting a good composition like this, but of course the reality is we make our own luck most of the time; either by being observant enough to see it when it is there, or dogged enough to come back when the conditions (be it sky and/or tide and/or the pattern of boats), are better suited to a good photograph.

    Nice work,
