Here are some of my favourite shots taken during a day of all seasons at Porthcawl yesterday afternoon. They've had a bit of work with Snapseed to bring out some of the drama of the weather, which I found quite hard to capture just with the camera alone.

They're not as sharp as I would have liked, but I'm glad I went out for the camera practice and braved the gusty winds, squalls, downpours and hail :shock: All taken on my Panasonic GX1; the beach ones with my 14-42mm Lumix lens and the last one with my 50mm Nikon

Somehow I've managed to loose the camera setting info :(

Calm after the storm

I think I've maybe gone a little OTT on the post processing, but I really like the dramatic sky in this one and I wanted the lichen on the rocks to show up.

Shining light

I loved the look of the seafront street lamps against the sunset sky, though I wish I'd noticed that I chopped the top off the lamp in the foreground at the time.

Of course any critique is most welcome, thanks.

Hi Sarah. Good to see you're getting out shooting. Re the last pic, it might look better if you just crop the FG light out alltogether? I like the composition. 8)
