• One of the gormley ironman, at full res you can see several more running out across the sand!
  • Yes its that windfarm again, you can see the massive service ship doing its thing here
  • The posh houses at Blundelsands
  • It does looks slightly tilted, but could be a) down to the lens and b) the rising land mass at the right edge - Chris Beesley
  • As discussed below, I feel the tilt too, but this is the natural slope of the beach, leveling this as a horizon would mean the windfarm and ironmen would be wonky, which would be worse right?
  • love these details here!!!!!!!! - ~~~johnny~~~
  • Ian I think it is a great shot. Along with the other really good feedback you have been getting I would lighten this area if it were my photo. I think that would really help pull the eye through the image. - Dan Ballard Photography

Hot and cold the pano.

From the muddy boots and loaf of bread session, down at Crosby.

So I’ve previously uploaded a crop from this, really I love the colours caught and the shapes in the sand, but I just haven’t been happy with the confluence of directions you are lead through the scene, that and the lack of anything of significance to look at on the thirds, but with the sweep of beach and cloud around to the posh houses lit up down at Blundelsands I think it is worth sharing.

Anyway, see what you think. Have a great day!

    Haha, i know others have said that, this is really tricky, high contrast images look so different monitor to monitor, the headline shot looked great in work and the second worked better at home, and since others had asked for more gradient I uploaded that, I think I've learned some stuff, and will do another update some time down the line, thanks to you and other who had input on this, I am here to learn as well as to share, ta.
