Wow! I had no idea it was such a lovely spot!

My next Holiday spot, perhaps?

Excellent viewpoint, Wish it was square to see whats to the right, but very vertigo-inducing. (I hate standing at top of cliffs, feel like I am just going to fall down them, or that wind will push me off)

Must be very good shot, as I feel like that just looking at it

Congratulations and all the best for your future winners!

The site of many a suicide. Nice to see the lines of flint in the white Cretaceous chalk. How about shooting some of the neolithic sites on the downs for future challenges? Given the right weather, they could be very dramatic. Nice work on this one, BTW.

Fantastic! A primo example of how the little things mean so much; imagine the image without the people on the bluff... Scale (or perspective) is everything here! Congrats on your ribbon.

Really awesome photo! The contrast of the people's size with the more distant lighthouse is really interesting. The sky is perfect, everything in the image is tack-sharp and crisp. A very clean composition, no distractions to dampen the impact it has.

love the capture - the people on the top of the cliff are great - and the lighthouse fits so well to offset the channel
