Photographer's Note

This is the isle of Hoy in the Orkney Islands, north of scottish mainland. During the ferry trip from Thurso to Stromness you pass by this wild island with dramatic cliffs, the highest in Britain.
I love to take pictures of cliffs. This shot has come out quite well, I think

notes---

My analogic compact camera had a problem at the time. The shutter didn't work properly and this is why the centre of the pic is so bright compared to corners... but it also gave that little extra exposure that let it capture the colors so well.
Still, in fact, I managed to take great pics, but it took a bit of editing as the pics were slightly red.
colors
I was just trying to take a red color cast out from the pic manually, with curve adjustement. Now the colors are a bit strong...but it looks good.
The green here looks a bit unreal (anyone wants to try a workshop?) but...
well the sky was bright for real and the light, close to dusk, was terrific. the picture is not that different from the original.
