[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have been staying with my family in Devon recently, but have been offline for a few months, so I have a lot of stuff to upload.

I took this on Boxing day at South Milton, looking across towards Thurlestone. About 5 mins after this, the heavens opened, and the afternoon was completely washed out.

I metered for the dark sky, with a ploariser, then shot it at -2.0 ev. I also used the camera's built in flash to light foreground a little.

In photoshop, just darkening and contrast adjustments.

EXCELLENT work Andy !!
Congratulations !

Well done. Best regards, Daniel

Hi Andy,
An fine picture with superb (colour)contrast! The depth is perfect, the sky is stunning. Only I would have cropped it a tad tighter to get rid of the harsh shaddows in the foreground. Anyway a great posting my friend!
