Welcome to EPZ - you've caught some spectacular light out in the Gulf. The silhouetted oil rig works well. Well done for handheld!

This is really nice and very atmospheric! Welcome to epz! Love the shafts of light through the clouds. The only thing i would say (and is a small thing) maybe crop just below the light in the clouds as this draws you eye away from the oil rig. Well done!!!

Hello David, welcome to epz.
Great shot, I agree with Lou, cropping away the distracting cloud would improve it lots.

I wake to this sort of sight everyday at work, however thats in the north sea where its cold and not the Gulf coast of mexico.

The light splaying through the clouds looks fantastic and you have done well to capture this hand held on a ship.

A great start to your ephotozine protfolio and I look forward to seeing more of your images.
