[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yet another picture of Lulworth Cove. I took this one purely because I liked the limestone bands on the shoreline. I was going to remove the seaweed but then decided I liked the colour. This was again taken with the Sigma 10-20mm and an ND Grad filter. Shutter speed 1.3 sec, Aperture F22, ISO 100.

I will post another shot as a workshop to show the same place under different light

Golly, whatever did we do before the Sigma 10-20mm ?????????? : )
It is a wonderful lens once one learns how to compose with it... and it looks like you have mastered that. I far prefer the soft glowing light here to the workshop version.
It is quite a beautiful image.

Hola Karan, ya empiezo a distinguir las fotos tuyas por el estilo que empleas. Belleza habitual en tus tomas con ángulos enormes que dimensionan y les dan una vida especial. Bonitos tonos.

You are a good landscape photographer too!

good clarity, well saturated colour and details with great atmosphere and mood involved!

Beautiful landscape! Nice composition and colors

Hello Karan,

I am curiously or this photograph in the morning or in the evening is taken, seen it gentle light. Very nice landscape. The workshop photo is clearer, but this one has more atmosphere. Good POV, Dof and BG Regards and TFS Bob

Hi Karan

You did great to go with your instinct and take this shot and the vertical compo really makes it a splendid landscape!
I really like all the colors and textures of the rocks from both the FG and the BG and the curve of the water between them is vert aestetic.
ND grad very well used, long exposure - beautiful and DOF - impeccable.

Take care and TFS

Hello Karan,

Hi Karan,
you're landscape photography is excellent.
Superb composition.
Brilliant colours.
Well done,

Hi karan,
What a difference the sun can make. The soft warm light of this photo is so beautiful. Especially the orange glow in the sky. It also helped you to slow down the shutter speed to create the wonderful soft texture on the ocean. I am glad you left the seaweed in the photo since it does give some extra color in the FG and some additional texture. Did you make a photo whitout it as well? The lines of the limestone are perfectly positioned in your composition and give the photo a superb feel of depth.
TFS this beauty,

Excellent sharpness, POV and composition. I enjoy saturation and contrast too.
Best wishes,

Hi Karen,
another great shot. Lovely warm colours and i like the composition alot too. Including the Seaweed was definitely a good idea, i think it adds some nice detail to the scene. Do you have a CP for the 10-20mm yet? I think being able to see that submerged strata of Limestone would've made this even nicer..but i guess thats just personal preference!It's great to see somebody else's take on this area.

Hi Karan.
Once more nice landscape shot taken with creative exposure parameters. I like nice reflection of the water surface, lovely rich colours, excellent POV and great DOF. WS is wonderful too. I am impressed with difference between two shots. My compliments and TFS.
