Please take this as a compliment (as that is how it's meant) - quite a few of your photos are typical views of coastal subjects, but they are just so nicely and cleanly done. Your compositions take into account foregrounds, potentially distracting subjects, and backgrounds. You don't over-process or add effects - just nice, straightforward, enjoyable photography Keep em coming

Thankyou, no worries re. 'woke' - as thick skinned, all compliments greatly accepted.

My photos are really just snaps as I'm no professional, not had any training courses or in been in any photography clubs etc.
I'm not after winning competitions, my post processing is in it's infancy (and probably my picture taking LOL), and I'm still feeling my way around this forum's etiquette and who's who in here.

love the detail in the clouds, really make it for me. Do you mind me asking what settings you use for this type of light ?

Neil,
I used 1 & 1/2 stop underexposure, 1/180th sec and IIRC still on my tripod, I took many shots, some with a Grad filter but when the sun went behind clouds or down fully I removed it. This one probably had the grad filter on, f11, manual, ISO 100, metering=multi-segment, White balance = cloudy, custome image set to 'Bright'.
I tried various exposures and then pick and choose, highlights typically get blown but wondered if I could play in PP, all shot using Liveview BTW with 2 sec timer, this shot was SOOC.

thank you, that helps encourage me to play about a bit more in low light
