<<< o >>>St. Annes sunset #4 5 comments + add yours

As many of you know, I was back in the UK last month, providing some one-to-one photography and post-production training for Jason Kotecha. We both had a great time, and both got some great shots, but this is the last one I'll be posting; taken moments before we packed up our gear and headed home after a long day's shooting down at St. Annes.

As it was such a great day, I've included all the day's shots below the main image. I hope you enjoy looking through them again as much as I enjoyed shooting and post-producing them.

Coincidentally, Jason posted his last shot today too:


On a related matter, Jason, Catalin Marin and I have just started a new venture: Photoshop tennis. If you're interested in finding out a bit more about it, and seeing our first game, you can do so here:


The basic idea is that each Friday, at or around 4pm GMT, we'll post three different edits of the same RAW file. Initially, we're going to post all three anonymously, but will let you know who produced each version after a day or so. Our first set of images have already generated some interesting responses :)

You definitely saved the best shot of the pier till last and you have a fantastic collection of images from the day. I have to say that this day was the most successful shoot I have ever had as I have never shot so many "keepers" in one day. Thanks again for a wonderful day :)

Thanks Jason, and it was one of the most successful shoots I've had recently too :)

Thanks for posting the series David. This sunset #4 is exquisite. Still waiting for your St. Annes book. I am sure it will be a best seller. Beautiful.

The fire color red within the clouds is just fabulous. This is my favorite of the four. Excellent series!
