V2 slightly edges it for me with the inclusion of the sun.

Definitely out, a rather beautiful and superbly composed low-light long exposure photograph depicting this rather gorgeous coastal landscape.

Regards Nathan

P.S. "Where was this photograph taken?"

Coombesgate Bay is about 10 minutes walk away from Woolacombe Beach on the North Devon coast.

v1 for me Derek. The sun is a bright patch of cloud which seems out of place with the general tone of the image and it catches the eye a bit too much. It's too close to the top of the frame and to the middle which spoils the natural balance of the scene. Aside from the sun, the tones, details and shapes are excellent.

Interesting to see the mixture of opinions on this one Derek Smile It's v2 for me as I think the inclusion of the sun adds to the atmosphere and isn't so dominant as to be distracting - they're both excellent images and the detail and texture are first class.

I like v2 Derek but I'm no landscape expert. Trying to find the reason why, I think it's because if the sun is included, it naturally follows that there's the reflection on the water. In v1 the reflection is there and I'm wanting to see the sun. Not sure if this makes any sense.... Smile Yes, definitely v2 (but does that throw the thirds composition out?)! Smile

i'm with Ann in chooseing v2 as it seems there needs to be the sun for the reflection to lead to, cracking shot too.

V3 for me Derek. The sun is just to close to the edge of the frame in the first for me Derek. Beautiful comp and the absent sun doesn't bother me.

Thanks everyone for the your votes and comments. My own opinion borne out by the fairly even split is that both images have separate problems. V1 has a reflection with no source V2 has the source (the sun) but its too high. Conclusion...V2 would work best if the sun was lower in the frame.
Off now to see what everyone else has been up to today.

V3 is my preference here. I find the composition less cluttered without the sun and the high contrast suites the mood well.

A fantastic atmospheric shot. My preference is for V2 - I like the sun in the shot and prefer the midtones as shot.

V4 for me Derek another example of your very detailed photography, it's always a personal choice when it comes down to it, I think the veiled sun gives the reason for the highlights on the sea, without leaves the viewer wondering where the light is coming from.
