Beautiful landscape Julia! Very well chosen POV. I found the legend of Bedruthan using the beach stacks as stepping stones a very interesting footnote to your photo, Well done!

Beautiful view and well seen. Excellent composition and details.
O, way back when, Cornwall was going to be a spot to visit which I was looking forward to, however, we hit a truck and that put a stop to our plans. I was about 20 then, I'm 42 now. Dad was driving a Ford Cortina, we were very blessed to have survived the accident. Dad was the only one hurt, with the front bottom teeth knocked out, rest of us were fine.
Thanks for sharing this area. It would be nice to see it someday.

A very dramatic and beautiful seascape shot here. I think the composition and framing are excellent. Good color, detail, and DOF. I Love seascapes!!

Hi Julia, I had a week's holiday on Cornwall in Sept 1999, and just loved it. So many interesting places to visit. I loved the little fishing villages built at the bottom of the hills. And thank you for your notes - very enjoyable to read.
Lovely bay here, quite sharp with strong contrasted colours. Well done and TFS.

Impressive landscape shot Julia!
Your note is very good. TFS this beauty...
Bedruthian steps I know them well. This is a nice shot but I don't feel that it does them justice. A nice seascape. Did you do any on the beach itself ???
Hi Julia, Giant Steps is also the name of a very good John Coltrane LP, so I like it for the title already. It's a very well composed landscape and I love the browns of the rocks. The sky is a little overexposed but there are a number of ways of getting tht foreground as well lit as you have and having the sky correctly exposed. You could use a graduated Natural density filter, even if you held one over the lens. The next alternative is to try a polarising filter (which I know you have) but this can sometimes give an odd result or you can take two shots one with the sky correctly exposed and one of the foreground then with some jiggerypokery in PS you can get one very well exposed shot.

Julia, a suggestive picture with a very nice mood. How great my vacations are about to come.
Great pov and composition. I like colors too.
Good shot! I particularly like the combination of rugged shoreline and jagged rocks. Exposure was tricky - sea spray is very pale, but the rocks are very dark - so you've done well to keep everything in range. If you'd like them slightly less contrasty, I've posted a Workshop for you here - not necessarily an improvement, just a different way to look at it :) Useful note as usual! Thanks for sharing :-D
