Wonderful shot .Right down to the shaft of light on the rock in the foreground.'There is no point pressing the shutter unless you are making some caustic comment on the incongruities of life. That is what photography is all about. It is the only reason for doing it.'......Philip Jones Griffiths
I'd be interested to know if you did adjust the colour in this one at all, because it looks real to me. I personally really like the darkness because it makes that shaft of light really pick out a line of detail on the mud right from the back to the front of the picture. I also like the 'jewel' effect of the sun on the water pools at the back. I think a lighter image may have lost these details? Great job again.
Colours have not been tampered with. Contrast between sky and beach was to much for my solitary Grad Filter to handle, so I took 2 Exposures, for sky and foreground and combined with P.S. Location is Sand Bay near Weston-Super-Mare. U.K. Thanks for all the comments.
