A good shot, very dynamic, and I can alsmot smell the seaa.

The sharpness, brightness of the whites if the waves and composition can be improved, byt nevertheless a fine effort.

I have loaded a mod with some tweaks to all of the above that you may like, - it composes the shot better and lifts the scene a little,


regards


Willie

This is a strong interesting image. It could do to be a bit sharper - this may be in reduction to 600 pixels, but I suspect f5.6 was not a good idea.

I have the Sigma 18/250 f4 -5.6 and, as I suspect will be the case with the Tamron, these lenses are not at there best wide open. I would use aperture priority set at f8 or f11 and use an ISO to get the fast shutter speed.

The smaller aperture gives more depth, but more important, uses the lens 'sweet' spot - the narrow range of apertures where the lens performs best. To get pin sharp lenses at maximum aperture you need the absolute best available - COSTING LOTS OF DOSH!
