This was about to be a throw away until Sue (TSEE) convinced me it was worth saving. Even using a car as a shield and a tripod, there was no way to keep the camera steady as a winter gale belted the Cleveland coastline. I threw some blur on it and played in sat/levels to bring out the mood. I'm weak in PS stuff so bear that in mind. Anyway, here's what it's like when it's stormy around here..

I think this is a powerful image. You've done a very good job considering the conditions! I like it.

I love the low angle from which you shot. Great capture. Has that 'maritime painting' feel about it.

Thanks Shaky and Mike! That was exactly the feel I was going for with it. Kinda how I saved it from the trash bin if you know what I mean.

Glad you all like it. The lake really offers up some pretty cool stuff.

There's so much here that makes it unique but the best part of this image is the gull, and of course the drama of the whole scene, well done.

wow, thanks! I think you are all far too kind. Now that it looks like this one has become a keeper :lol:, I think I may work just a bit more on it. I appreciate the kind words and encouragement. Thanks.

Very Nice....really like the energy captured in the shot...make a big print of it and whomever stands before it is going to want to put on foul weather gear. :)

Cheers

I like this shot, but I think it needs the top 1/4 cropped. Gives it a more pano feeling.

Again, thanks all! The only reason I stayed away from a crop was b/c I didn't want to lose the lighter clouds in the upper left hand part. Maybe I'll try it anyway and see how it looks. Gotta love "save as"
