It started raining as soon as I arrived Lands End. Instead of returning back to home, I just let raindrops soak my camera and myself because I believed the most beautiful moment would appear after raining. Thanks to mother nature for that precious moment. It was like - a lucid dream.
The panorama version is here ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/59267/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_596989.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/59267/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_596989.jpg', '/') + 1) .

Great shot!


Thanks for your suggestion. After toned down the lower left corner, it will be like this ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/59267/120/596989.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/55000-59999/59267/120/596989.jpg', '/') + 1) . ', how is that? better? or too dark?

Ok here it comes the bad coment, you have beautyfull image there no question about it,but there is one thing (the processing !) i am starting too see this more and more in DPC and images are starting too loose the feeling betwin a real photograph and a digital image. Yes we have the advanced rules and photoshop gives us the oprtunity too alter our images ,but when i see a beatyfull photo being overprocessed it looses its feeling of actualy being a photograph. I am sorry i dont mean to be harsh it just happend too be your image that i had too put my comment on . Thanks

Looks like a landscape from another planet . . beautiful and slightly surreal at the same time. Good shot

Simply a beautiful image. It has a nice dreamlike quality to it. Great composition, lighting and color contrast between sky and water. Until now, I only had one standout for my top three picks. Now with your image, I have two of my top three chosen. Good luck in the challenge. 10

Stunning. The slow speed add so much to this shot. The water acts like fog, this is wonderful. A ribbon could be yours.
