    I guess everyone has to have a sunset and if you visit Dorset you have to take a trip to Lulworth and Durdle Door...so I've killed two birds with one stone and got the door with sunset in one shot.

    i really like the composition and colours, almost like a drawing ... again a bit soft though.

    And I think I have seen Durdle Door on so many images, it is very popular among tourists ;) (of course in a less artsy style then)

    I did remember to sharpen this time. Too much and the white pebbles on the beach began to look out of place. I used the unsharp mask (only one I know how to use). Perhaps I need to learn other sharpening techniques?

    well, you can also select areas and then only sharpen them.

    I know this looks a bit plastic, since I did this in a hurry:

    I only sharpened the pebbles a bit, where as the rest of the image got the full dose ... the door itself got even an extra dose ;)

    Like Alex said, nice composition and colours. The whispy clouds are lovely, and I like the curves created by the lapping water. A very pleasing image.

    Very nice. I thought it was an HDR when I first looked at it.

    Nice edit. I really must sit down one rainy day and play with photoshop!
    Sw1tchFX and ShootsHoops, it is an HDR. I think it would be impossible to get any detail in the right hand cliffs or the door itself unless I had a durdle door shaped ND grad filter...now there's an idea :wink:

    Very Nice pic! It reminds me of a level in the first Halo game on Xbox.

    very nice but are you aware there is an unwritten rule on this forum that says you have to post a bad photo from time to time so the rest of us feel human ;-) :lol:
