Excellent sky, really injects some drama into the picture.

As above,
Sorry not picking on you

I may of cropped down from the sky to just above the large l/h cloud to make it a panaramic .
I know its a 50/50 but to me it makes it a single dramatic image rather than a really good sky and some boats Smile
The sea in the foreground is just enough to pull you straight into the shot
well ttaken in difficult circumstances(were you on a boat)

Good thought, thanks - I'll try it (though I rather liked the sunny blue above). Yes, on another yacht. Not really tricky as i do a lot of it. Biggest issue was intermittent rain dollops - had to keep wiping the lens (OK, the filter) dry. G
