Hello Brian,we were down in this area on a bell ringing trip last week end so there weren`t too many photo opportunities,judging by this lovely shot we`ll have to get back down there real soon!
The spectacular colours of the rugged coastline are just gorgeous,the chimney stack breaks the sky line nicely in an imaginative composition.
A truly super shot. Love it.
All the best Les.

I can hear the roar of the ocean, something I miss badly since moving to the desert. Good lighting and dof with sharp details. Love the colors. Well done, tfs.

Lovely colors of the coast line. I like the composition, truly picturesque scene.

Beautiful view of the Cornwall coast, you have divided your photo into three parts: sky, water and land, excellent photo

Your viewpoint, from the headland, collects good details of the cliffs, the rocks, the pounding sea and the strongly positioned chimney. There is a fine sense of depth from the f/g to the distant, white lighthouse. On a beautiful day, like this, the scenery of Cornwall looks stunning.
A very well composed shot with strongly saturated colours.
Have a lovely w/e,

The scenery is spectacular ... and even your picture! Fantastic colors that evoke paintings by impressionist painters! Beautiful!
Best regards, Nino.

Another beautiful photograph from your Cornwall trip with, again, excellent composition, the shoreline leading us invitingly to the horizon, the lighthouse and the gorgeous blue sky above them. The chimney (of an old engine house?) is placed perfectly in the frame and the pale foreground rock is also.
Beautiful colours, perfect exposure and, as is always the case with your pictures, stunning details and clarity.
Have a Great Sunday!
P.S. But why such a small picture in so large a white frame? I think that if we could see your picture filling the full frame it would be even more appealing!

Superbe composition verticale pour ce magnifique paysage aux couleurs superbes. La lumière est magnifique et la qualité d'image extra. J'ai juste un petit doute sur la présence du rocher au premier plan?

Excellentlly captured image with beautiful colour contrast and background&foreground. Wonderful composition,I especially like the nice detail and colours on foreground. Great shot!
I thought it was PL filter, the sky and sea are so blue..Super UV:-)

A striking shot of a rugged coastline with vivid colour and great framing.
Thanks for sharing

Hello dear Brian
You chose the vertical frame so well here, giving such depth to this beautiful stretch of coastline. The place looks so untouched, despite Cornwall being such a well known coastal county. Wonderful colours and those orange flowers on the edge of the cliff are the perfect finisher. Thanks for sharing, have a beautiful Monday.

Beautiful balance between the sea, land and
sky: it makes the picture nice calmenss, it
creates a nice depth and it makes the picture
exciting. Also nice is the grey stone on
the forground. It's a small detail, but it
creates an extra depth (for the viewers: put
your hand on the screen and see the differents).
and it's a nice break between the bright (and
beautiful) warm colors. Light management
and composition are as always great.
In short: a beautiful picture and little
details shows that you're a great photographer.

All the best,

now is this a beauty or what!
talk about your stunning coastlines!
love how the landscape moves up the frame, and viewing the steep slopes slanting into the ocean below.
Oh how i'd love to be here in person!

The composition is great, the colors too, and I'm very surprised to see the chimney here, near the coast.
