A View of an Abbey in Whitby...
Lens: DA 21mm Camera: K20D Photo Location: Whitby, Yorkshire ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: paulyrichard, 06-11-2011, 12:55 AM

I have just come back from a trip to Whitby in the north-east of England, in Yorkshire to be exact.
Whitby, Whitby Abbey and it's environs is a much loved jewel in the north-east of the UK and is a seriously over-photographed place.

Before I went, I researched images of this place online so that I could get an idea of the hackneyed angles and approaches I would need to stay clear of. I hope I have something of an original perspective/ angle here with this photograph.

A lot of sky, but I like it. The person adds scale.

Thanks for your input K-9. I take on-board what you say about the sky, I agree with you, even though I like the sense of scale it offers.

Lots of sky works very well here in my eyes... as you said, sense of scale. Well done.

Thanks, MSD.

Here is an alternative version in regard to losing some sky...

Yes, the tighter crop holds the viewer's eye to the building and person better than with all that sky. Sense of scale is still intact with the person in the frame.

Yes, it has been cropped very well. Keeping that top left cloud intact was a good choice.
