    Exposure is nice, for the first photo I would keep as is but also crop closer on the two groups and post all three as a series.

    With #1, Greg, the waves seem a little on the 'harsh' side to me. Have you sharpened the image?

    When faced with similar problems I often create a duplicate layer and sharpen that then selectively reduce the effect with a mask; but that assumes suitable software.

    The alternative is to use a tiny bit of blur brush.

    Good shots though.

    John, good idea. When I noticed the two groups of people sitting on the rocks, I saw the scene in my mind as a photo - diagonal line with two groups at approx thirds - and shot it. A little more consideration might have led to me to shoot each group seperately as you suggest.

    Geoff, yes I did sharpen the whole image after converting it to jpg. Computer problems have me using ACDC again, and it seems to really degrade the image quality when converting and resizing. (Although, I should add that at the moment we have 3m seas running on a 4m swell, so the water is a bit unsettled even in protected areas.) Thanks for the tip, though.

    Thank you both for viewing and commenting.
