Beardown Man no.1 by Alex37 Beardown Man no.1 by Alex37
The beardown man is the tallest standing stone on Dartmoor at 10ft. It is unique in that it is nowhere near any bronze age settlements and the reason behind it is unknown.

grey wethers is a nightmare to find, shoot and take in properly. mother nature normally rolls out the nasties when I visit there.
If you make it through fernworthy in the first place that is...

Great shot, I dont think there is anything wrong with the light or contrast. And if you pumped the contrast up a bit I think your right in saying it would look very unnatural. Nicely captured.

Great shot. I like the composition here. The light is unfortunately a little flat though.

nice shot alex...i could say the same as you've (rightly) said about a couple of my images lately in that it could do with a little more contrast..what time of day?

If I boosted the contrast or saturation furthur it would look unnatural. I have to say I genuinely think this is quite a contrasty image, but maybe I am just too tired ;P
I guess this would have been at about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, the sun seemed quite strong so I was pleased with how this came out because I cant usually make those shots work for me.
