Hi Jogi, beautiful shot I love the crescent shaped beach, forboding sky, and your foreground subjects. You could probably get a hair more detail from the foreground rocks...small nit...natural well composed shot...probably would work well as BW too Smile

I love the sky and the waves. I agree with bailbr, just a touch more detail on those rocks would boost this over the top. Perhaps if you isolate that area and give it a tweak in ps. As for those structures, I think they're poles secured to the ground by guidewires. Great shot. Wink

I think I know what these are. They are for the less intelligent alien who, having got lost on earth, need some sign to show them which direction home is! Smile Nice shot btw. Also, I see you have a spot of dust on your sensor in the top left. I have the same camera and would clean the sensor about once a month with swabs I got off Warehouseexpress.

Thanks Bruce, Amanda and Richard.Had already given the rocks a bit of a tweak, but your right could take a bit more i think.Richard, thanks for pointing out the speck, quickly checked back at images taken after that day and it seems to have gone , but will keep a close eye on it.Maybe somethiong on front of lens.

I generally like open, cooler looking areas like this. I wonder if these antennae have anything to do with direction-finding. That is, triangulating incoming signals, shooting a back asimuth, all that jazz to find out where somebody, say a sinking ship, would be. --Chris

I love the scene and you've photographed it well. The poles are navigation marks to warn of the rocky groynes that would be covered at high tide.
