I'll try and give you a sense of direction here my friends. Now, if you look at this picture
The Lizard and turn to your left about 45 degrees, todays picture is the view you'll get.

PP = Leveled the horizon and used my favourite overlay gradient on the sky at 30% then finaly sharpened.

Hi John

There is a sense of "standing on the edge" here and if that was the effect you were after, you've done it perfectly, well done!

Good sharp detail throughout - and a nice, level horizon :-)

Good shot.

Nicely composed shot John, great detail in the foreground. And a perfect horizon.


Hi John, one of my favourite places captured beautifully with lovely natural colours.I think you got the balance of the shot just right with the right amount of sky.
TFS, regards Jean.

Hi John, I reckon that's why they call this 'Cornwall.' eh? Love the focus and land/sky ratio. Is the water that green? TFS.

Excellent again John my friend. Wonderful POV, good colour and fine detail. It looks just a tad rocky down there but the sea seems to be extremely calm. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Little Dove II’

Hello Dear John, I hope you had a nice Easter.. Ive just got back from my little Easter holiday...

This is very nicely composed John, with a small amount of the sky showing.

It certainly is a rugged coast line here..
I took a look at your website, and very nice too.. so well done..

Have you had a look at my other gallery...


All the best my UK bloke friend :-)

Hello John,
Good exposure, sharpness and composition.
I particularly like the way that the slope of the cliff leads the eye into the image and out to sea.
TFS, Regards, Roger.

Lovely seascape John, good composition.

Regards Mark
