3 and 5 to me are the best because of the light. The rest were underexposed, maybe some PPto bring in more light. The do loom very sharp though and that's what matters too

I like one and two the most, love the moodiness in one that would have been lost if brightened.....

Wouldn't hurt to straighten it though :)


Cheers, Len

Watch your horizons, I know the Earth's surface curves, but not that much requiring to compensate for. :lol:

The first one is epic, last one is good too. I'd adjust the WB in #2 and #5

First and Last are great. #1 makes you look at the whole picture and want more. The last one is very moody. Great Job.


Canon 60D/20D and a few lenses.

I like #1 and #3 out of all of them, #1 is by far the best one in terms of composition.

Agree, funny how so many forget the horizon aspect.


you're a great friend, but if Zombies chase us, I am tripping you.

I like #2 best because it shows good detail from foreground rocks through surf and into the background and cloud cover.
The last picture would be better without the stars.
Number your shots if posting more than a couple.

I like the ones with no artificial lights the best. I think you did really well with these, honestly.

Very nice work. In #1, I would bring out some of the shadow details in the clouds and foreground a little more. Lots of interesting textures in there, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of noise.
