?only possible improvement I can think of is ....on my tablet screen there seems to be a very slight white line on the horizon.

Re: Breaker


Slightly disturbing.

I do find some of the tones a little heavy, but I guess that is a matter of personal taste.

I like this one, Steve. I wish the tonal transitions in the water from dark to light were a bit smoother. I see faint vertical lines originating from the clouds falling into the water. At first I thought they were sun rays leading to that bright patch of water but they seem to be everywhere.

Re: Breaker


Usually light streaks are angled, these go straight down.

Re: Breaker


Thanks everyone.

Tim, it is some form of groyne/breaker I believe but they were spaced quite far apart.

Steven - It was taken in Italy a couple of years back and it was the light that made me stop and take the shot. I haven't added any rays or done anything specifically in PP to get it to look that way (a couple of them are slightly angled).

I remember the scene and thinking that it was odd light. I also have a number of shots of some incredibly strong rays of light coming over the tops and sides of mountains and I'd never seen that before either - almost like a searchlight was being used.

Fascinating country for so many reasons but the light was extraordinary.
