Very similar to a Joe Cornish image I've seen. The composition isn't as strong in this one, but well controlled exposure and sharpness. The darkening in the top left corner needs to be sorted out - it's eiher over polarised or its the vignetting from your filter. Perhaps look at cropping a smidgen from the top. Good effort.

Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated. I don't think I have ran it through the lens correction in adobe. The 17-40 does darken near the edges but this should help it. Will look arty cropping as well.

The famous Cornish view is this one:

which is a little further on and right.
Assuming you don't mind feedback: the photo here has got great potential, terrific lighting and mood, but it looks like you were torn between capturing the pink cloud and the mountains and the resulting composition looks a bit unbalanced to me.

Thanks Jon, feedback is always welcome. In this instance I was trying to make the best out of the situation. Joe Cornish's shot appears to have been taken round the corner past the honeycomb rock. That's where I was heading but the tide was right in and I couldn't get past, the water was at the base of the cliff. At that point I had to find a the best angle available with little to foreground interest. On the lhs at the bottom there was a rock and with this and the slow shutter speed it gave some interest to the foreground... The shot by Joe is a cracker though... Can only dream of attaining that level!
