Coble Landing is a slipway to the beach at Filey on the English North East Coast. The Coble is the traditional fishing boat of the area and they are launched from the beach, demanding a flat-bottomed boat with a high prow to cope with launching into the surf. In the background is Filey Brigg, a promontary consisting of boulder-clay which erodes easily, causing the characteristic patterns in the cliff.

The picture has had a sky pasted in.

And I missed the bit of original sky showing through the netting on top of the boat... doh!

Big difference

This sky makes a big difference. A great shot to view.

Mark, I have a question for you. If I had presented this initially with the added sky I suspect you would not have known it wasn't genuine. Now that you DO know, does it affect the way you feel about the photograph?
regards, Mike
