    I had a miserable day on Saturday trying to find a good location to capture some snaps. I found this place earlier in the day and by the time I returned the light was dropping fast. All of these were long exposures, 25-30 seconds in very difficult windy conditions. I'm sure the end results will be overly PP'd (colour boost) for some peoples tastes, especially after reading the thread posted before this one.

    Very nice, especially the first with the beach and the water in the last 2. I really need to get out with my camera!

    Nice colours in the sky on the 2nd last one there, could work nice as a tighter crop down the middle into a portrait aspect? As all the interest is down the center of the image. Good work though!

    Thanks for the comments and yes I agree a crop on shot 4 would work.

    Thanks, there were several other locations there i wanted to shoot photos from but the wind was causing tripod issues so they will have to wait for another day.

    I was out taking a few picture this afternoon, and took a few shots of this lighthouse. It was only when I was driving home I realised that I had seen somthing similar before.

    Cracking pictures Sneeks and a beautiful harbour.

    Cheers

    These were taken late on Saturday afternoon, whilst out on a family trip.

    The first two are of Elie lighthouse, cropped and just a bit of brightness/colour adjustment.

    The next two are of Anstruther harbour, straight out the camera.
