Catching a breeze

Catching a breezeNot much wrong with that. Did you add the vignetting in the corners? If you would like to try something a little different, use an object/s close in the foreground to add interest and lead the eye into the image. In this case, maybe getting down low to the beach and the weed covered rocks. You would need to have the object/s in focus along with the other elements of the image so a 50mm lens may make that more difficult if you can't focus very close and achieve a large depth of field. A wide angle is ideal.

The loneliest rock

The loneliest rockNice! I would personally have composed so that the foreground feature (rock?) was off to one side of centre and maybe "introduced" a few addition small stones going toward it. Smile

Rather than wait for the light to get low enough, I use ND (neutral density) filters of varying degrees of darkness. Square ones are the best bet, cheaper than ones to fit specific lenses if you have two or three different filter sizes. They can be used with a holder, several filters at the same time or just held in front of the lens.

Back Road to River Don.

Back Road to River Don.A nice shot, well taken under difficult light conditions - would love to have been there myself. Only critique I can add is that I would have cloned out the aircraft contrail (along with the dust mote) and small bright cloud to the right of it as being a little distracting. Maybe would have toned down the warmth of the sunlight a little by using a ps filter to return the 'cold' feel and pushed in more contrast/saturation to add punch. Smile
