Coquet Estuary & Castle view
This was taken at Coquet Estuary by Amble Marina which is a well sheltered Marina on the southern bank of the river Coquet. The town of Amble is just a short walk away. Looking up the estuary in the distance you can see Warkworth Castle.

It's some ten years now since I spent a week in Amble and it's good to see this view again Helen. I like the sense of space that this shot gives but if i was being picky I think I would like to see less sea and sky and a 30% crop from the lh edge would bring the castle more into prominence and show how it dominates the scene. However, that's a personal preference and it takes nothing away from a cracking shot, well done Helen.

A beautiful shot Helen and with Keith's suggested edit even better.
Well done though, still like it loads.

Thank you for the comments Keith I shall give it a go. Thanks George as well for your comment.

Nice picture Helen, perhaps a crop in line with RoT moving the horizon from centre would improve this, have a look to see whether the sky or water should dominate.

Good thinking in using the landscape mode Helen, I think one thing this does is infinity focus. Given the chance/time to take a shot I will take several, aperture priority, auto, and perhaps a mode setting too, and choose the best, or in my case the least worst.
A nice scene well taken, but perhaps the suggestions may make it even better, it would be nice to see the castle a little bigger I think.

I see the Wise Ones have spoken so I will simply not in agreement. I think I've stood more or less in the same spot as this. I've had two separate weeks in Warkworth and loved it.

Haven't tried the scene settings on my 70d but this very good image makes me think I should give it a go, very good image
