[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A shot taken from the beach at the rear of Durdle Door, I believe it is called Man O'war bay. Would have preferred a early morning shot but time was against me, thank you.

Hi Matthew,
a spot i know very well, and have posted a few shots from myself. This vantage point is a great place to show off Man O War Bay. The colours are well saturated with some sharp detail throughout too.
I think perhaps the horizon is a little too centrally placed. The Sigma 10-20 is a great lens and excels in creating dramatic landscapes when you use it to fill the foreground with interesting features, such as the rocks here. The sky, although a wonderful deep blue, has very little content to warrent so much of it in the scene, in my opinion. One of the golden 'rules' of landscape photography is have your horizon placed a third of the way up or down the scene. Rules are made to be broken of course and should really only be treated as a guide, but i think in this case it is relevant. Hope you don't mind, this is by far any sort of criticism on a nice photo, just what i have learnt.
It's lovely to see somebody else's take on somewhere i know so well. Hope you have more!
Thanks alot,

Super and excellent POV. The DOF's that these lenses can provide is top class. I like composition even though its splits the frame into 2 halves, Did you use polarizer to get that beautiful blue sky?
