No, I'm not going to say anything about obsessions you might have with certain kinds of symbols! Wink And there's no reflections "problem" here, either. Safe choice, Keith! ;-D

Excellent composition, of course, looks very natural, love the foreground and the subtle sky.

Just looked at the other one, because for some reason this one isn't sitting right with me. The composition and foreground interest is spot on and to be honest I'm not even sure why it's not working for me. Perhaps the sky is a bit too bland at the top, where as the previous one has a bit more punch to it. I know that everybody else will think I'm talking s**te, but I can only give my opinion and I know I'm not making a strong case for myself and it's not like I'm some sort of expert, but I don't pat people on the back just because others do and I appreciate honest opinions on my shots as that is how I learn, so I try to give honest opinions to others. It is without a doubt a good shot, but not one of your best (still far better than anything of mine!!!).

Jeeze Keith I darnt post any comments to your pics anymore, I can happily argue with you but tbh trying to defend myself against all of your henchmen( or should that be hensmen?:-0) at once for something I never said becomes a little tiresome.

A critique? well go on seems as you asked....

Initally let me say I dont think its a bad picture. That said Smile......

Of course I prefer the balance between the sky and the sea, and I also prefer the stack being fully reflected in the sea. I also like the choice of exposure for rendering the sea, which btw is remarkably flat for Flamboro. Nice triangular lead in lines and interest on the rhs balanced as best as you could no doubt with the little rock intrusion.

Ultimatly though you have much better images ( although not that other one!). The little bit of red livens things up a little but all told I think that the light is just too flat to make this work for me. Theres a uniform light greyness which doesnt appeal that much. We both know that you have xxx clicks coming that suggest I am wrong, but there you go, ive seen you get that for self confessed wip's Wink

In the strive for exceptional images I am sure that you would agree they are few and far between. The constant demand of Epz to gobble up a daily posts can lead us all to post things which, whilst technically competent and well composed, are not a representation of us at our best - or possibly more truthfully - are not a representation of us working in the best light we may have hoped for.

Fair Enough? Of course it would come as no surprise to you that a low colour scene doesnt really grab me, one look in my gallery would tell you that and I accept that its more my issue than this images.

For the simple reason that you used natures reflector to give yourself some light. Otherwise it'd have been flat and lifeless. But then, you knew that anyway.

so we're back on line.

It's a tale of two details. Had the light been there I would not have been able to have got the underwater detail without using a CPL and even then, not as seen here. The previous, now well viewed image Wink shows what happens when the light finally pours through and some rock detail is lost in the cameras inability to record such wide ranging dynamics.

We all have better images.....I'm confident enough in my work to post a wide ranging selection of it.

Even if there were no colours, I still think it would not be 'flat and lifeless' because of the underwater details. That brings lots of life into the shot I think. Now, if you can just combine the colours in the sky from the last one, and the underwater details on this one, that would be even better. I wonder where you can buy a grad that is maybe a 1.2ND on top and a 0.2 polarizer on the bottom...LOL...
