Very good. Most of your shots make me think. This one just evokes a "Wow."

The rusting hulk nicely fits the colors of the eroded rock that wrecked it. Keeping the exposure of the sky right was so important to making this one work.

Splendid shot.

The Barbarian,

Yes, the sky is the main object here if there has to be one. Want to show a closer picture as well as an overview. Thanks for viewing

It is said that the people along the coast made ships wreck by lighting false guiding torches.

Seems like no more misguiding torches for the ship save for ''the light from out the lurid sea'', Torgny...As it can be inferred from the quotation, the setting reminded me some lines by Poe:
''Far down within the dim West,
Where the good and the bad and the worst and the best
Have gone to their eternal rest ''

The colours are nice but it is the texture which appealed to me even more and tempted to try a B&W version, arranging, also, the lighting according to the ''lurid sea''... Hope you don't mind.

bahadir,

Yes, the location is by the West Coast, and yes, the pictures are quite poeish in athmosphere. Never really read Poe by the way. Rimbaud on the other hand was a favourite

(People constantly reminded me of my physical resemblance with Rimbaud, at the age of 18-19. I wasn't very fond of that comparizon but got the girls' attention anyhow, strangely enough)

One of Rimbaud's poems, "Le bateau ivre" comes to my mind as well as "Coleurs"

Yes, the texture is important and you have done a great job in enhancing the texture of the cliffs and the sea

Torgny

PS I have a portrait oriented variation. If I'll find it I'll post it in this reply. Please forgive the ego trip just undertaken :-)

The portrait oriented picture. Needs some (or very much, perhaps) post pocessing. Want to keep that "lemon yellow" colour.

What happens up there in all the layers before the light lands, strikes or whatever word that can be used. Wonders
