Storm Gods at Play

By SteveNZ  
This is one of those 'not sure if I really like it or not' photos.

Sheltering from driving rain and seaspray behind a large sign in the car park at the port I captured some stormy sea images (amazing how quickly the light and conditions change).

All are quite grey. Varying shutter speeds seem to convey different moods.

ISO100, F/8, 1.3sec.

All critique welcomed.

Well, I think it is great. I hope it will grow on you so to speak. I wonder where it was. Well done, Paul (also near Tasman side)

Great atmosphere you caught here, my only thought otherwise is I'm not keen on the typography... Dave
