One of the stops on my list to get a shot of while in Dunsbrough was Sugarloaf . Its a pretty impressive rock formation , just the size of its amazing . Got there fairly early so as wasnt to sure on the directions there but my tomtom was spot on , so waited for about 30mins for it to get a bit lighter so I could see . Took some shots from up top first in really low light then decieded to climb down to the bottom to try some shots from there as well . Just as got there a bit of a rainbow appeared to the right of the rock and so I took this 10 shot stitch .

Used some of the tips from Christian Fletcher taugh us on his course plus some technics i have learnt of Photoshop TV , Also applied a Vignette layer over it something I had never done befor to my shots .

I never knew of this fantastic rock till I first saw the shots from Peter Eastway and Christian Fletcher. It looks incredible!! You certainly also created a very good shot of it, the light is good, the sky is very nice with good drama. Colours are great and detail is nice – I like this!

About one third from the left there’s something that draws my eye. Don’t know if it’s a stitch line or something else in the clouds. Also that bit of rainbow is probably cool at large size, at this size I would have thought weird lens flare if you hadn’t told us it’s a rainbow 🙂

The vignette effect is good, I actually reckon this composition could take a bit more vignetting, maybe worth trying?

Yeah I like the pov but I think a little more vignetting will help.
Good Stuff

Thanks guys ,
Working on another shot of Sugar loaf at the moment will try a heavier vignetting on it .
I see what you ment Flemming have fixed up the master copy a bit of the clouds were darker for some reason .

stunning shot mate, to me the section on the left looks to be in a different white balance. Did you select a WB or did you have it on AWB?

I noticed it as well and tryed some color adjustments but couldnt get it to look right so gave up editing the color just left it .

Great shot. It’s amazing how many different looks can be had from one location. So many people have shots from there are each has it’s own look.

Thanks Mark ,
Yeah I love the location there so many different takes on it .
Yeah Peter Eastway has a great edit on it , I dont normally like people in landscape shots but works with his to show the size of the rock
