Great composition and sense of scale. Bet it looks just as good in colour!

Beautiful composition. I'd love to see the shot in colour, I bet that the sky just looks magnificent.

There wasn't a great deal of colour in the scene! I've got a few to process from my trip over the enxt few days so I'll post when I'm done. Mainly travel snaps rather than anything more 'considered' due to time constraints, but a nice dip in the ocean for the Western Cape and I'm planning to revisit to spend a lot more time in the area.

Wow that is a awesome shot dubaiphil, especially the sky!
How did you process it?

Thanks Victor

The colour shot was processed with a tone map trial of HDR Efex, followed by a blend to lower hte brightness of the sky a little. The B&W was processed with two tweaked presets in Silver Efex, individually brushed to blend.

What a fantastic shot! I loved it...

I almost can see Cap. Ahab over the Pequod's side in the horizon.
