Photographer's Note

This famous rock feature, carved out by the sea over 1000's of years is on the Dorset coast and is possibly one of the most photographed features.
Shot on a very odd overcast day when the clouds seemed very thin and wouldn't hold much detail without blowing
Tech: exposing for the highlight gave a very flat image so used a grey card (on the floor just cropped out)& bracketed +-2 stops range.
In PS found the best exposure and used curves to match the 18%.
Pulled the shadows and pushed the highlights to get full range. I had to dodge the breaking waves in lab mode to brighten them up.
