Ruth and Val were with us Yesterday

Please remember I am no Landscape photographer!!

My Thanks go to Harriet, Malcolm, Phil, Netta, Cal, Steve, Hugh and Ryan for the UA's yesterday

V1 is my fave, and would benefit from a pano crop - think the f/g rocks are unnecessary and a tad distracting.

Great timing Lillian, I'm sorry to hear you didn't get your sunrise or sunset though, maybe next time when the weather is better?

I think Bill's suggestion of a letterbox crop from the bottom (where the shore meets the sea at the left edge of the image) would work very well. A great step into Landscapes.

Just about perfect timing Lillian. V1 for me please. I do think, on a second look, that there is some merit in the suggestion of a letterbox crop. Taking out the rocks and beach area would in crease the impact of the wave enormously.GrinGrin
Just my thought and in no way intended as a criticism.

The letterbox crop is a good idea but that doesn't take away the fact that these are already excellent images. I know you are not a landscape photographer, but these are Seascapes and it looks like you are pretty good at them!
