Thank you DPC, especially my ever so kind commentators, for an exciting and very motivating week.
I am thrilled with my second ever ribbon, beaten to the blue by a superb image but I take comfort from the fact that my image was virtually straight from the camera!
My thanks to Mark Bauer (http://markbauerphotography.com), highly recommended, who led the landscape photography workshop I was on when this photo was taken (without any coaching!).
Nice to have two English locations as Nos 1 and 2!
Kimmeridge Bay at dusk. 17mm, processed in Capture One, straighten, white balance, processed in CS2, resize, save for web, smart sharpen, that's it!
Let's hope you can see the leading lines - I can. . .

Hey Hugh, good to see you back in the challenges. We haven't seen too much of you recently.

Beautiful image, those tones are so muted and delicate. Not the usual DPC fare, but worthy red ribbon winner. Congratulations.

Keith

Good shot. Meets the challenge spot on and an interesting shot. The viewer is drawn in and left staring at the subject. The big depth of field and the tones are good too.

Very nice color scheme; just slow enough shutter to make the waves interesting and the depth of field perfect.
