You like those don't you? Is there any way the ones in the background could be really blurred?

Thanks Stef, Andrew, Andy, Den, Rod, Jan, Mike, Chris, Julie and Suey, good to have your comments. Smile

I could have blurred the background more, but I wanted a strong echo of the foreground shape, like the waves they are designed to repel, Stef. I do have shots of singles, which I may upload in the future. Smile

My fave so far (deja-vu?) However like the first one I'd still like to see it from higher perspective. Not a critisism just wondering if it'd work in a different way.

Very well composed this one Eric! The lower angle helps give a better impression of perspective IMO.
Have you tried this one in B&W? I bet this one would suit some real hifgh contrast treatment. Try fiddlin with the curves thing in Photoshop, thats if you don't already know that! ;D

Lovely shapes. Are they really wave breakers or are they sculptures. They would appear to work well as both.
Ken
Wrote that before carefully browsing .thms and see that they must be what one could call functional sculptures. I like they different ways you have captured them. Nice work.

Thanks for viewing and commenting, Ken.

No, they aren't intended as sculptures; yes, they are designed to protect the seawall. I like them better than art as they have, in a way, been designed by nature. Their shape is determined as a function of the mathematics of waves. There's something very satifying in that. Smile

Thanks for your answer. By the way have you heard that they now must change the thinking of mathematical wave theory since the exsistence of "monster" waves has been proven through satelite measurements. That is of course not a problem on normal coastal areas.
