I travel frequently to North Cornwall and the scene in these images is typical of the coastline in this part of the world.
Image 1 was taken at 18mm with a polariser filter and shows the wider scene of the fields leading to the cliffs. The vingetting on the LHS is pretty obvious but I decided to leave it alone.
|ISO 200 18mm f/11 1/100|
|ISO 200 35mm f/11 1/80|
|ISO 200 70mm f/11 1/80|
I jumped to 200mm for image 4 because I felt the views in between added nothing to the scene. The detail of Long Island is the obvious focus of the image and the GCHQ radar station at Morwenstow can be clearly seen in the distance.

I frequently use telephoto lenses because they give the photographer a really wide choice of framing options very quickly. I find I have to plan and think more about my position when using a fixed focal length lens - not a bad thing sometimes!
