Nice moody, calm and balanced composition, James. I do like the movement of the waters in front and the way it builds a triangle leading the eye to the sea and an obviously amazing sky. For a perfect one you should flip the horizon of about 0.75 degrees counterclockwise as well as correct the colours. For me, there's a bit too much magenta at the wave most left and too much cyan in the lower parts at the clouds to the right. Regardless, spotting the scenery with these amazing lights and 'long' exposure: my thumbs up.

Excellent as always Jim! Spot on exposure and composition!

Lovely capture Jim,

You must have caught the few short hours of good weather yesterday. Lets hope we get some high pressure soon with some snow.

Nice shot James,

Excellent captured, great POV, composition and colours, excellent details on the rocks too. :) Very well done, thanks for sharing


Hi James,
Excellent work on the shutter speed, the exposure and the composition. You captured beautiful action in the bottom and stunning colors at the center and top. Maybe the horizon is a tad too centered, but the balance is there.

Hi James

Brilliant work. Love the effect from the slow shutter speed. :-)

Good seascape with dramatic wave in foreground. Good work.
Regards Darko

Hi James, i really love the lighting in this, a mixture of moody and calm. Your pictures always amaze me. :)

Wow! This photo is absolutely perfect! From colors, composition, light and even the timing for the wave to strike the rock! Everything fell into place! Great shot! :)

Pure art.

I love the splash of water on this one.
And the sunlit rocks look so nice :)
Beautiful scene!

so beautiful! beautiful sky and sunlit rocks. i love the blurred water then the splash onto the rock right at the end

Hi James,

This is perfectly composed, set and well just so well delivered. The water does seem to be smooth as velvet... looks almost like milk. :) I love that golden tone on the rocks... and the sky in that subtle mixture of blues. Very nice image.

excellent. great composition and lighting, i like the sun rays on the rocks

Can't say that I've ever seen a more FUN photo! The splash at the front sends chills...good chills and chills of fear for your camera! Hope you didn't get any salt water on it! Just incredible Jim!

Hi James, I like this very much. Excellent colours, composition and great timing.Well done!! Regards, Pat.

the blurriness of the crashing waves, the stillness and sharpness of the clouds, the sun on the rocks...you wrung every inch of greatness out of this sceene.
