What I enjoy about this photo is that in normal light it is a very normal, boring looking place. The outline of the shrubbery make it almost look like a desert when its actually a scene in the middle of the town.

Thanks for the positive feedback guys. I would love to know, however, what I can do to improve the photo, so if you have any suggestions, please let me know. Cheers

Hi John, nice perspective, good shot. I think the exposuredoes the theme justice ie:desert-like . I would possibly boost saturation slightly, I've tried it and it seems to work ok, but not really necessary

Nice seeing your work !!

Hi Zolbol, thanks for your interest in such an old post. I feel honoured.

It was taken in Beacon Bay, East London. I don't know if you know the area, its where we live though.

I look forward to seeing some of your wildlife posts...

Hope you don't mind John, but I did a quick edit job on your picture to punch it up a bit. Boosted the red channel in levels, darkened the foreground a tad, and increased the saturation. I don't like to take liberties like this usually, but you asked for suggestions, and I thought this might give you a different view. I still like your original shot. Looks very natural. This is a photoshop special. Lol. Cheers.......thekman.

Thanks for the suggestion thekman. My personal preference would probably be a combination of the two, so it definately makes me want to do a few more edits to the pic.

Good point, more approriate name for these would be definitely cloudscape because there's not really much land in photo and if it's there you can't see much of it.
