exotic to us all, regardless of which corner of earth we inhabit..
magnificent.. .. truly depicts the depth and endlessness of the sea.. it invokes the feeling of humility and a great feeling that we have reached a destination.. we have reached one edge of the world..
the interaction between the land and the sea is sublime.. they fuse to depict the oneness..
the ever present flow that runs from top to bottom, weaves everything in one thread..
this is an ode..

The effect is sublime, not convinced about the sharp horizon yet. Will come back for another look after the caffeine has kicked in!

Dave has picked up on the sharp horizon, it was the second thing that registered with me, after the foreground reeds. (There's also another sharp horizontal a bit below the horizon, on the left side). I like the hint of darkness above the horizon but the sharpness is just a bit too, well, sharp I think. It works against the sense of depth, give a 2-D feel. But an interesting development.

Yes, I'm starting to think maybe I went a bit too far with that horizon... boosting contrast in the sky contributed to that. I might try taking it down a bit. The other horizontal bit was actually sunlight reflecting on the water.
...And there are no reeds. It's pebbles + ICM, and a few added pencil marks.

I shall abstain from the discussion of sharpness, straight lines and so on.

Utterly grateful for your U.A. "Mad as a whelk" - I like it!

For me Alan this is not as strong as 'the fence'. It does not have the strength of a powerful focal point to hold the image together. I have a painter friend who is tyrannised by the line between sea and sky - he calls it the tyranny of the horizon and I am wondering if it needs to be quite that strong? I like the slight curve in the waves and how this balances with the horizon line.

Another work of art Alan - interesting comments re horizon line - kind agree there.
In fact I like the image below the horizon line but it is a lovely blend of sky and sea - so
lots of variations.
I too thought the f/g was reeds - love the ICM.

Love the whole image exept for one small thing. Thats the totally white rectangle under the horizon on the left, just feel it needs something.......
Brilliant work all the sameGrin
