Alternative title: 'Big Simon (Bigsi) and Little Simon (tricky01) do Cornwall'

Simon and I met up at The Port William pub (great burgers btw) around 6:30pm and then wandered around the surrounding area of Trebarwith Strand before returning to the pub for a quick stabiliser and some surprisingly spicy nuts around 10. No sunset but we were treated to some great light for the first hour or so. As the clouds rolled in the focus turned to dramatic b+w's. Always great to meet fellow dyxummers - will have to return the favour one day in the Netherlands Simon.

Bob will be disappointed to hear we forgot to grab a 'team' photo, but i'll kick things off with a snap of bigsi taking in the view...

The b+w look good, especially #11.

It was a long way up those cliffs-

Great colour in your shots, really punchy. Who is that idiot who got in your first shot though?! How inconsiderate!

Proof that timing is everything; we both took pretty much the same shot (my no. 5 and your DSC04396.jpg) but you got in there before a white van and a black car joined the party!

What processing did you do on these, you've got great colour and range throughout while keeping the realism. My pics have come out a bit too HDR for my liking.

Wow! Those are awesome. Especially the first - I don't even remember that blast of sun in DSC04417.jpg, you've caught it so well.

All done in lr5, I usually hit auto on WB and Tone, then tweek it a bit and use grads to balance. The "presence" sliders depend on what lens I'm using, some lenses need a bit more help than others.

Flickr still mucks up my sharpening though!

I think the only one of yours that looks hdr is 6, not a bad thing, that light was very contrasty.

Whats your processing?

Both have taken some great shots here, well worth a visit at some stage, even more so if there's a watering hole nearby.

Simon, nothing wrong from my view, but really like 5, 7, 11 & 12

Big Simon, your 7 & 8 both superb.

Thanks Daniel, it's well worth the trip if you're ever down this way, the beer is good and the peanuts spicy
