Taken in the seaside town of Portstewart on the Northern Ireland coast. It was a very bright afternoon but the negative showed a lot of detail in the sky. A bit tricky to bring it out in print and I went farther than I usually do in burning in the sky and dodging the foreground rocks.

what a beautiful seascape, everything seems to have come together very well, rough sea, threating sky and bleak cliffs, like this a lot, very well done, and very well printed

Cracking good print.
You might feel you've gone further than usual in burning the sky, but personally I think this works really well. There's drama and a sense of movement in the clouds- you can almost feel them rolling in from the sea. I like this very much.

Excellent print, impressively expressionistic.

Superb atmosphere! I've been to Portstewart a couple of times and it's been like this both times, along with wind and rain! I remember running for a very good fish & chip shop to escape drowning or being blown into the Atlantic!

Thanks everyone - appreciate the positive comments. And Yes, Rob - it can get a bit blowy at times!! Always nice for a stroll along ‘The Prom’, though it can get a tad busy in the summer months nowadays.

I love the drama in this image! The sky is very impressive. This works really well in black and white.

As the recipient of the original, I can only add what a wonderful moody shot this is.
