The Hidden Bay by Colin Metcalf

Greeting Cards & Postcards

Available to buy on…

This little bay is just south of the Butt of Lewis lighthouse on the Isle of Lewis (Eilean Leòdhais). The sea around here is nearly always turbulent and angry which make this bay a haven for local fishermen.

This started as quite a low resolution image taken a couple of years ago, after playing about between Photomatix and PS Elements a strange almost Orton effect happened but not a clue how. I quite like it see what you think.

Taken with a Kodak Easyshare CX7530
Tonemapped in Photomatix Pro
Finished in Photoshop elements 7.

Thanks for taking the time to browse my portfolio, I hope you see something you like. Colin.
