Different take at Durdle Door, Dorset
Lens: Leica Summarit-S 35mm Camera: Leica S (Typ 007) ISO: 100 Shutter Speed: Above 6s Aperture: F12 
Posted By: The Madshutter, 12-28-2017, 01:11 AM

Having photographed it from sea level quite a few times, on a stormy weather day I decided to go for a different point of view. This is Durdle Door from above, taken during one of my Workshops in Dorset last spring. Leica S, Leica Summarit-S 35mm and Formatt-Hitech Firecrest filters.

Thanks for viewing, best regards

A calm sea but forbidding sky - a beautifully ominous photo!

I've seen this scene photographed using several different touches. I like how you've included the patch of rough grass in the foreground. The weather only added to the overall feeling of the image. Very well done!

Love how the foreground complements the rest of the scene. Very nice!

I agree, how many of us, me included, would have tried to remove that clump of grass which gives depth to the whole scene, I'm just not too sure if the filters were really necessary.

Beautiful photograph. I like the composition, how my eye follows the curving shoreline, the grass and sea tide that appears to be moving (nice use of slow shutter) in a still picture. The rock in the background appears to be a primitive, humped beast having a long drink from the body of water.

Lots to see in one photograph.

Thank you very much Dewman for your comment, I find that photographing such iconic views always presents a bit of an extra challenge, and to me that is extremely stimulating to find new ways to tell a story: therefore, your comment is especially appreciated

Thank you very much, glad you enjoyed the composition! Well, filters were necessary to balance the light and to bring the exposure down to where I wanted it
