After Frans earlier soaking on the jetty, she headed back to the car to dry off and keep warm, so I took the opportunity to grab a few location shots on my way back.
Originally shot as 3x2 aspect ratio but with this pano crop in mind [see variants]
Hope you're all ready for a relaxing weekend ... hope the weather's kind to you.
Cheers for popping by,
Cracking shot, like the crop of V1 best. Chaz.
v3 is my fav.lesley
V1 my favorite. Great image...........Sandy
For me V1 is the best compositionally Paul.
The focal point of the image is maintained while the reduced sky and foreground elements of the pano still give context. Nit picking but the ropes on the right just go out of the image .
some lovely tones, and some very sharp detail in there mate. (very well balanced).
v1 for me too.
Lovely colours and interest throughout Paul, no 1 for me.I may of also shot with the camera a little higher to give that boat in the middle a bit more space and to let the top of the pots on the lhs seperate from the wall in the background but your comp frames all the elements very nicely.
V1 for me as well, although I do like V3 for that little round looking cloud just left of centre!
You up to much?
Fair points them Jon, cheers. Probably I should've said in the description, but the camera/tripod was pretty much at full extent here [or at least as far as I dared put it for stability] ... even though I'm me being 6'5" I had to use Live View to compose it.
Thanks all, catch up again in a bit
All of them look pretty good Paul.
All three have their own merits but against the flow I favour V2.
Live view for you!! Oxygen mask for me then!!
Ver 3 for me matey
Wonderful shot! I like the wide format in V1.
Nice shot and I like the crop Paul. Have a good weekend, I'm off to a rally with Kai so expect some mud and stones up here on Monday
Nice one Paul. No 3 is my fave crop.
A really cracking exposure, Paul.
Totally flawless, imo; and something to aspire to!
I'm normally a huge fan of panoramic images, and this setting clearly lends itself to the 3x1 ratio of V1.
But....there's always a "but!"
I think that the distribution of the clouds makes V3 the better image, imo.
With the truncation of the large cloud and the sunset glow, I think that V1 seems a trifle cramped in comparison to V3, which has a beautifully harmonius balance to it; much more so than the other two, I reckon.
A different sky would have made a world of difference to V1, and the 3x1 crop would work really well.
In this instance, and as I cannot vote three times, I am compelled to put V3 on my shortlist. Everything is right with it; it's a gem!
Version one for me too Paul, the other varient work but verison one seems to focus you in more.
Great light and colours too.

With a user name like yours, Bill, shouldn't that be butt?
Nicely done MrS, wondered what it looked like after I'd thrown in the towel! xx
LOL ... cheers Bill ... eloquent and descriptive as ever, though I knew there'd probably be a 'but'
I agree with you though that V3 is probably the better crop and also has much better cloud formation too. I was just demonstrating how I'd seen it originally at capture and also the full shot/scene it was taken from ... V3 just came as a pleasant 'hybrid' and as I'd prepared the file I thought I'd add it too
Being honest, I'd expected someone to have pointed out the cropped ropes on the right by now ... obviously this doesn't bother people that much, unfortunately though I didn't really have any room to go further back due to a van being parked up here. This is probably my biggest niggle with it, but one I can live with so long as I don't look down there
A big thanks everyone for your time and comments on this one, some great thoughts and opinions

Cheers RJ, thanks for your time. I'd say that one is probably the weakest of the three for me as it really needs something in that 'dead space' bottom left, a small pile of netting and a buoy or maybe a lobster pot ... but as I'd seen this as a pano, I didn't worry too much about it TBH.
Thanks though, great to see that we all see things differently ... have a great weekend.

Er...quite possibly! LOL
Actually, Paul, I was going to mention the ropes at right and left...!
Decided to spare your 6' 17" frame further torment, especially as I secretly knew there'd be a reason for cutting them off so cruelly - poor little things!
Ah, now you're only saying that 'coz I mentioned them, c'mon, admit it
Ha ha ha!
Beautiful image - V3 for me
I mentioned the ropes right at the beginning Paul ! Our judges are always banging on about the edge of the frame.
Ooops, huge apologies Mike, that'll teach me for scanning through comments whilst working ... cheers for the nit picking too, they did/do bug me too.
Memo to self, read things more thoroughly is future
Thanks too Chris,
V1 for me mate, it's not always possible to get the exact comp your after even at 6'5"
LOL ... I know mate, frustrating not being tall enough isn't it?
V1 too ............
Cheers Chris, thanks for your time mate
V3 for me, too. I also find the cloud in the top left-hand corner slightly cramped in V1. Either way, the panoramic format is definitely the way to go...
Cheers Cathy ... hope you had a good weekend.
