Hotels by the Sea

This is a 'holiday snap' style photograph, where composition is the goal. These hotels are on the clifftop above the old town at Robin Hood's Bay, on the coast of Yorkshire, UK, photographed in November, 2007. Fine rotation was used to offset the wide-angle distortion effect which curved the buildings in at the top. The exposure balance between the shadow side of the buildings and the slight burn-out of the sea background is most pleasing, creating a great sense of depth. Sharpened and colour- and contrast-balanced. Fuji FinePix S5600, automatic. Image by Mike.
