On The Edge

ISO 100
9.8 mm

On top(ish) of Cheddar Gorge, in the background is the town of Cheddar. The rocks are all actually made out of cheese, the contortions and edges are due to people taking bites out of the rocks (even though it’s strictly prohibited by the National Trust).

I wanted to give a sense of depth not of only to the foreground but also to the background, the edge of the gorge does that well. Taking a photo of just the town wouldn’t look interesting (in fact it doesn’t look too good especially because it was kinda hazy). Burned the edg of the rock to increase contrast between the grayishness of the town and sharpened the grass to give it more definition.

Overall I quite like the shot 🙂

p.s. thanks for comments on the previous post, much appreciated!
