Wow! Reminds me of a painting, Homer, I think. The real thing is even more impressive. Thanks for sharing.

Can you enable mods?

I've enable that Willie - please go ahead! I used the programme I have on my computer to slightly alter a couple of things - contrast etc but I don't have Photoshop or Lightroom (I think that is that what they are called?).
I had to hand hold the camera as there was no way the tripod was going to stay put in that wind, I wasn't going to risk it!

Its very good as it is. The mod evens out exposure, colour balance and a little sharpening.

There are some free programmes that are quite good, GIMP is one.

Wow thank you very much Willie, that looks great!

I took a whole heap of photos then went back home to look at them (I'm only about 2 minutes away from where this was taken) - I hadn't thought about the sea spray blowing onto the camera lens though Sad. That was my first attempt at wild waves.

So I went back again with a different lens and a lens hood lol

I was immediately taken by the energy in the wild waves. The bright sky tends to pull your eye up to the top and there is very little detail there. When it is wild like that it is totally impractical to set camera on a tripod and fiddle with neutral density grad filters. I added a grad filter in lightroom with a bit of clarity and vibrance and pulled back the highlights. Your camera has done well recording detail in the very bright sky. I enjoyed your photo.

Thank you very much Northern_Licht, the modification looks great Smile
I have a problem with the sky a lot, especially with it being over exposed - something to work on!

I have the same problems with sky. In theory the it is best to get it right in camera and use a graduated ND filter. The ones from SRB come out very well in reviews and are a fraction of the price of Lee ones. The ye are still a bit of a hassle to use. Therefore the grad filter in Lightroom is a great rescue. The other tip for solving the problem is to shoot in raw and adjust the raw exposure for the sky the adjust the original raw for the foreground and blend the two of them. There are lots of YouTube videos which show you how to do that in eg photoshop elements, photoshop or gimp.
