    This was probably the first colour LF frame that I've taken that I've been quite happy with. Been to this spot many times before but I was never lucky with the light. Hope you like it!

    I've been there many times Jonathan and this captures the essence of place beautfully.

    Wonderful shot. It avoids the over-the-top HDR effects and milky sea thing which seem to be prevalent in photographic magazines. I think it captured the movement of the sea perfectly. Sorry to dwell on technical things but what shutter speed did you use?

    Many thanks Pete, really appreciate your feedback. I believe the shutter speed would have been about 1/4 to 1/2 of a second. Knowing me, it'd have been around f/16 - f/22 with a smidge of front tilt. I meter for Portra 160 at ISO100 to over expose it a little as well.
