Another very attractive seascape taken from a good viewpoint.
The receding sea draws the eyes towards it where they are quickly checked by the rising waves!
Good contrasts between the rugged nature of the rocks, the smoothness of the sand and the changing, moving quality of the sea.
I like the upright rocks in the distance where the sea is rising to emulate them.

Lovely to see a view of the beautiful rugged Devon coastline with the waves rushing in. Excellent low POV, great DOF and beautiful colours. Very well composed!
TFS and cheers, Ulla

I'm very glad you describe each location well. these images...have you ever thought of submitting them to Google Earth? they are of that kind of quality in which others with Google Earth could do certain button clicks and see images right from the global map. The ocean views and sea views are much like my Palouse. I know where they are at...as you do here, but to others they look the same as many more posted...yet they could be many miles apart...
Other than saying that...it fits your well groomed method in scapes!

I remember Devon and Cornwall. Seems like so many of the coves claimed a smuggling past... with some degree of pride!????
This is a wonderful seascape Paul. Your use of the grad filter looks perfect. I have decided that I like using 1/2 second shutter speed for moving water. Any more and it begins to look unreal to me. I am a stickler for nature looking natural. I guess I'm not real creative. I like this image a lot!
We just recently bought 2 40D's... for my husband and myself. He got his first, and we noticed a focus problem at longer focal lengths. We sent it in and it was fixed. Then we got mine... and it has the SAME problem. So we sent it in yesterday. AGGGGGHH!

Yes, it is next masterpiece from you. Amazing lights. I like light spot in the center of the image and impressive light shadows around it. I like razor sharp details of the image and great art use long exposure time. Composition is blameless as well as the framing of the image and selection of POV. Bravo. Well done.

A typical Paul Haynes picture. Well cocmposed, fine colours, peaceful. I like especially the subtle colours of this sea-landscape.

I really have to try this type of shot, I know a gorgeous little waterfall and pool near Yosemite NP in Ca. I was all set to go and they had a wildland fire. I see that you stop the apiture all the way and leave the shutter open, not only is this lovely it is instructive.

Another terrific seascape from you, mate! You really are an ase of this chapter :)
Very good usage of the shutter here to give just the right amount of movement and enhance the atmosphere of the scene.
The natural contrast between the rocks, sand and the foam of the waves is really beautiful and definitely attracts attention to the shot.
Very well composed and balanced the exposure with the filters, too.
Bravo and TFS
PS: you left some small dust spots in the upper part of the image :)) Did you already get some on your new 40D? :(

Mucho mucho mucho dinamismo y un encuadre casi perfecto. Colores, paiseje y luz que llevan tu sello. Preciosa toma.

I didn't realize that you are back, sorry. And it's a pleasure to re-discover your pictures. This one is especially beautiful because I like that kind of atmosphere very much: a grey sky with all its variations above a wild and lonely nature. The captive foreground leads the spectator's eye well into the picture.

Maybe it is typical example of the coast, but on your photo it looks just great. As always long exposure time and wide angle made wonders. Grim sky, blurred water, raw rocks - all parts of picture are very good.

This photo really gives me a feel as if the waves are about to engulf your camera and tripod. The shutter speed created that wonderful movement in the wave.
The warm colors of the FG rock and beach give great contrast with the cooler ocean and sky. Its a pitty that there are some waterdrops present. But the sky does have a wonderful effect on the depth as well. Whats that bright orange thing on the right?
