Mmmm, this works well Mark, love the detail in the posts and the water is just right. Have you tried a square crop, from the top left?

The groyne gives an excellent, strong structural element to the image, Mark. Lovely tones as well. A square crop might be worth looking at too... as a variation.

A GEA! You must be doing something right Mark!
Time to believe in yourself.
Love this in mono and I do like that little bit more
subject matter with the groynes.
Although people are suggesting a square crop, I think this is good as it is
because the size of the groynes supports the empty space.
Also you don't want to loose the detail on horizon.

Nice one, Mark. Smile

I think you could easily afford tor crop this as the top of the sky is not really adding much and is a little noisy.
Try a 16:9 crop from the bottom up.
I think you'll be surprised at how much it will improve the composition - would make the the posts much mor prominent an dynamic to counter balance the long exposure.

A though, anyway!
Congrats on your GEA Grin

Cheers,
Bill

ps: Just noticed some are suggesting a square crop - erm...I just like to be different! Wink

I agree with Ann. The mono works nicely in this version and you have achieved that drama you were looking for.

OK... I looked at the square crop and wasn't too keen. Tried the 16 x 9 crop and I like it... thanks Bill.
