I wanted to comment on this earlier but I was busy. Great place! I'd have a field day there! I think the rocks look a little flat (same greys right across). I'd darken up some of the sides with the PS burn tool. That would make them pop out a little. Very nice photo. Great exposure. Love the lines sweeping in to the sea. Easy
Thanks for your comment/critique, I really value it. I had been playing with the photo and I just updated it. I really love your black and whites images, and you gave me inspiration to try a bit more on the photo. Let me know what you think of it now.
Thanks, I really appreciate your insight into your techniques, as I really love what you get in the black & White images you present. I usually do vignetting by adding a overlay 50% gray layer in PS, and then just going with the Filter->Distort->Lens Correction, and playing with vignetting there. Do you use a particular method, or just regular burning the corners?
I use the lasso tool to crete a round edged square inside the picture. I then right click and feather to 200px. Right click again, select inverse. With the selection still on screen, add a new adjustment layer - curves. I then drag the curve down - darkening the outer edges gradually. There are probably many many ways of doing the same thing.
