It was great returing to Banburgh Castle again. My favorite shot here just wasn't happening due to harsh sun to the right and unhelpful clouds shapes....but as the tide came in I got this great swirl shape in the water...I had my shot!

Awesome shot, that foreground movement of the water almost makes it feel like it was shot from a helicopter or something. superb.

Wonderful shot, especially the composition and lighting. I love that this photo is in B&W.

Nice sense of depth and movement in the water. The only quibble I have with the image is that the horizon line does not look straight. Wonderful atmospherics with the clouds. With the 1 second exposure time, I's surprised you didn't get ghosting. As always I love your photography and learn from it.

Hi Bud,
Thanks for your kind words.
I took this shot using a spirit bubble on the hot shoe and the internal incline-ometer (which is quite good) on my 5D mkIII. There's a big wave on the horizon. I think it is distorting the horizon line making it look slightly off. The castle walls aren't vertical either, the most vertical one is the far left, but the towers to the right lean out a bit, which I'm guessing are the ravages of time. So I usually use a bubble to get my levels in this spot.
There was a strong side light, but thankfully my 24-70L has this huge hood which kept the flare at bay. Something with is a pity that isn't carried over to the new mk II version!

Eyes do strange things. I have gotten into using a bubble level on my tripod as well. I also use the ruler in Photoshop to straighten lines.
