It's another lovely picture, Eric. I would appear to be in the minority for preferring the first one - I liked the depth to it.

Many thanks for the good feedback, just returned from a second visit to this place. Hoping to get a few more good images out of these yet. Smile

I do think that this is the more immediately visually striking composition (and I believe immediacy is a vast strength to an image). However, I think my first upload is a more original approach, in that, it gets you right in amongst them and you can actually get a better idea of their bulk, their size, their texture, and you can really see what they are, as well as perceiving the fact that they repeat for a great distance. This second upload is the shot that occurred to me at once upon seeing them. I regard it as the standard approach and I tend to suspect that most photographers would take this shot. That is why I did not put it up first, seeing as I was pretty sure that it would be well received. I was going to save this one until last, actually. The first upload was something I found, and I tend to believe that the majority of photographers would not capture that view. The first upload, I hope, grows on you. Grin

The perspective in this one makes it a much more interesting image IMO. Surreal in a kinda bladerunnery sorta way. Love it!

The other one probably is a more original view, but at 500pixels the detail towards the horizon just gets lost.

This is it - this was the shot I was after! Thanks!

Don't disagree that this might be the shot that most would go for, but not everyone would succeed as well as this!

Not sure how Philip K **** and 'Do Androids Dream Of Electric Sheep' fit into this (author and name of book: Bladerunner) - yes, maybe it has filmic qualities!

Prefer this to the the 1st Eric. The symetry of the wave breakers coupled with the angle & colour make for a very effective shot.
