Looks pretty wet to me. Grin

V1 is my fave, and would benefit from a pano crop - think the f/g rocks are unnecessary and a tad distracting.
But, hey: what do I know!! Wink


Ps....thank you for the UA Grin Grin

Unlike Graham I would love to stand there in my Kilt just to blow off the cobwebs. These two are excellent Lillian but must go for V1 it is an awesome capture.

Great timing Lillian, I'm sorry to hear you didn't get your sunrise or sunset though, maybe next time when the weather is better?

I think Bill's suggestion of a letterbox crop from the bottom (where the shore meets the sea at the left edge of the image) would work very well. A great step into Landscapes.

14 Apr 2013 8:20PM
Two excellent images Lillian, thank goodness the weather improved a bit for you today.

Maiwand 11 3 73 England
14 Apr 2013 8:26PM
Just about perfect timing Lillian. V1 for me please. I do think, on a second look, that there is some merit in the suggestion of a letterbox crop. Taking out the rocks and beach area would in crease the impact of the wave enormously.GrinGrin
Just my thought and in no way intended as a criticism.

The letterbox crop is a good idea but that doesn't take away the fact that these are already excellent images. I know you are not a landscape photographer, but these are Seascapes and it looks like you are pretty good at them!
