So fantastic is the view that it almost looks like a scene from an animation film!

It is thecountours of the rockyforeground, though, to my eyes, whichsomehow! abstracks it from the sea.

Again, great capture, Matt

lol, i can't believe you just wrote that! Excellent observation skills Bahadir, I too was not happy with the vcontrast between the foreground rocks and the sea, a result of over zealous dodging.

Here is an edited version which i feel appears more natural!

This is what Paint Shop Pro did, with one press of a button in "Enhance photo|Automatic contrast enhancement". I prefer it.

"D'you like your ferret boiled or fried? - No I preferrit raw." - 'I'm sorry I'll read that again' (radio precursor to Monty Python, c.1967).

Alan, many thanks for taking the time to edit my shot.

However, in my opinion the result is too over exposed for my liking and the sense of drama and foreboding for which i was originally trying to acheive has been totally lost.

Each to their own though!

There are performers and observers my friend:blah:By experience;even when I barely notice 'something' in my picture, I am always 100% surethe latterwill, too:lol:

As for the edit; how about softening the countours with blur tool, for a more natural transition?

Btw, it's nice to see Alan's worthy contribution : )
