Thanks both. I'll go with you on the colour photo.of thee wave- I like the green.

That's what this place looks like,Richard, it's post-card stuff. I  catalogue and edit  with  Lightroom (Adobe) and I do very little with photos preferring to get it right on location  using grad. filters  re. the bright sky to help balance the exposure,some say do it  at home  in Photoshop but I'd rather sort it on location but sometimes  I'll add/subtract a touch on the exposure and  clarity (sharpening a touch) .. . I don't really think that photos should be taken too far away  from their original form.  I also bracket on exposure ,always checking the LCD image.What is a mystery to me however, is the colour difference between the  sea defence wall in the two photos after the lighthouse  dome close up. I checked the Lightroom history and I barely did anything to them-one was at 1/50 sec. the other at 100/sec. (both f8) and that's the only real difference. I've even gone back in and changed the exposure,clarity but nothing gets that colour difference,the rocks are lighter so maybe it was the sun-I remember looking at them and wondering why the difference. I also think that the camera and lens make a difference.  Canon 5D 11 and the Canon 24-105, and  I see them as an investment in my hobby really rather than a cost. I always check horizons  since someone told me about a photo a while ago in which the horizon wasn't straight  ( he did me a favour,I rigorously check that now )  I'll crop in a little if there's a distracting subject on the  extreme edges. Barely anything's been done to these ,I adjusted  exposure just to see what difference it would make  but even the exposure in most  was left as it was. When you stand on the cliff tops looking out to sea that's the colour  you see,it varies depending on which parts of it has the direct sunlight especially when there are large clouds about which will darken some areas .The lighthouses and sea were as you see them here. I did very little with the sunrise, photos too and I was astounded at the colours appearing as the sun moved above the horizon clouds especially. With the right weather it's an artists and photographers' paradise,infact that's  why there are so many artists living there and so many art shops and galleries... it's just  a pity that the roads are so narrow   Grin
