Thanks for votes on my pairs of pears from yesterday.
Here's a photo from those few lovely sunny days we had in February.
I was impressed how this came out with the cliffs in the background almost black, think it made it look great, show off the spray a bit. Maybe I'll get some of your opinions??

Potentially a very effective shot... as you say, the flying surf against the dark background really makes it.
One reservation, and it's the reason I said potentially... I would suggest cropping almost a third from the bottom of the image, up to the line of breakers, as the area of relatively still water in the foreground works against the energy in the rest of the frame.

And if only that surfer had been doing his thing, standing up on his board...

One other suggestion... if you want critical opinion, something that goes further than 'great shot,' then you should consider uploading to our Critique Gallery, rather than the main Gallery. Though of course that would mean you would forego votes or awards.

Thanks Alan, I did look at the flat water and wondered if to crop it off and decided not to. Cheers for that Smile
