Rhossili Bay
Another shot from our Boys' Bike Weekend way back in September. We wanted a stop off on our way back home from Pembrokeshire for a walk and some refreshments and I suggested the Gower peninsular as it was not too far off the motorway but a world away in terms of being fabulous. This beach has been rated in the Top 10 in the World on Tripadvisor (I think). We didn't get to the beach itself but enjoyed a walk to Worm's Head and then refreshment the Bay Bistro. This year's Boys' Bike Weekend is all sorted and we off to Capel Curig in North Wales; the wettest place in Wales apparently. Do we care, though? Not a bit!

Very nice image good composition and colours and looks a good place to visit, when viewed large I can see some fringing along the outline of the hills which is a bit distracting, but other than that I like the image a lot

I can see this lovely image adorning one of the old-fashioned railway posters exhorting one and all to visit the inspiring Welsh coastline - and inspiring it is too, it is gorgeous. I love the composition, the high pov allowing the eye to sweep down down and onto the beach and then onto the mountains both near and far, wonderful! The fringing that Steve mentions is actually a sharpening halo. The little Panny will have applied some sharpening to the jpeg image in camera and the post-processsing sharpening has exacerbated the problem in the areas where there is high contrast between two areas - e.g. the sky and the hill. The best way to avoid this is to use selective sharpening, keeping the selection just clear of the hill/sky junction. Nonetheless, its a smashing image and I like it a lot.

Long, long time since I was in Capel Curig, and yes it rained then
A perfect summation from Keith, which I nod in agreement with.
I noticed the halo too but it doesn't detract too much from the attraction of the scene.
Well done you and the li'l Pany, like it loads.

Another super photo from the DMC-LF1 lots of detail, and as for yourself Alan another well chosen POV and well executed shot.
Some interesting comments from Keith, giving something for me to consider also, I suppose fringing is similar to halos. On just a few occasions I have cloned them out, but perhaps too time consuming over a large area. Having said that I did not notice them here it just that Steve made reference to them and now I see them.
