"WEST COAST NR HATTERS BAY" by PETER BARBER; Grade: Acceptance.
While it is obviously a dark gloomy day that only the West Coast can deliver, I feel that it would have been better taken with a really stormy sea and the waves crashing on the shore. The calmness of the sea doesn't go with the clouds really.
I would brighten the image by about half a stop, but I would like to see the sky made darker to emphasise the weather.
I would also crop the bottom of the image to the lower big rock. Well tried though and see if you can improve it in the computer or go back on a really stormy day.
