Very nice indeed, Matt.

You were fortunate with the light and lack of spray, too!
That sort of luck has eluded me on my recent visits.

Of the two, I think V1 for me.
I find that the (relatively) untruncated f/g rock and pool better for the image than in V2.
There seems to be a slight barrel distortion visible on the horizon, which could be an issue for some folk, although I don't find it a big deal, merely worth a mention in case you had overlooked it! Wink
The exposure and processing are, of course, superb as always!

A very appealing scene, Matt! Beautifully captured! Due to the fact that I'm fanatically obsessed with straight horizons, I'm just wondering why it appears to be slightly curved. Smile

I prefer the first version. I feel the scene is more balanced than the second one.

A stunning captured! Wonderful tones, colours, light and composition!

Thanks Bill - oh and sea sprey was a big problem.

No slight about it, it very pronounced. Wink

V1 for me I think Matt - get yourself a copy of PTLens it'll sort that horizon out for you! Smile

V2 for me,but there isn't much between them,

Love the reflection and the bold green! V2 for sure but I wouldn't have realised if you hadn't done the crop!
Love it

My preference is with V 2 as the straight edge on the f/g bottom left rocks is cropped off......for some reason my eye kept straying to that for me the cropped version seems better balanced.

V2's crop is better imo.

Superb Matt. The flash of green seaweed really helps to make the image. I prefer V2 cropping out the distracting parallel step in the rock.

A beaut, Matt and another vote for v2.
