    I don't know if you were after C&C but here is what I think anyway:

    What I like:
    - The square format
    - The simple composition
    - The horizon almost in the middle of the frame. Somehow I think very often it works well with a square format.
    - The use of a slow shutter speed (and the resulting blur in water and clouds)
    - The pinhole/Holga/Lomo/Lubitel look (My guess would be Holga)

    What I don't like so much:
    - The vignette is just a bit too strong but I can live with that
    - I find the sky is a bit too dark at the top of the frame (result from vignetting?)
    - The silhouette of the car on the left hand-side

    Overall, I like it though and it made me want to go back to Kimeridge Bay for a photographic trip and to take pinhole pictures there. Thanks for sharing. I'm looking forward to seeing more.

    I always like a bit of C&C ;)

    I hadn't even noticed the car, thanks for pointing it out. I shall deal with that when I get home ;)

    The sky may well be a tad too dark, I struggle with a TN tech monitor and the 'brightness' of the screen changes with every slight head movement. I plan on a new Xmas pressie to myself.

    It's truly a wonderful place isn't it? I could have spent the whole day in that one bay alone. I plan to return this weekend, well to the Dorset coast at least :)

    Thanks again for the feedback :)

    It is. I really like this part of the Dorset coast: Kimeridge Bay, Lulworth Cove, Chapman's Pool and Durdle door (even if is sometimes crowded and has been much photographed). Hope you get some decent weather next WE.

    Beautiful! The clouds are so pretty in each shot. I like how you composed the shots (eg the low point of view in the second shot) and your processing.
