    Great colors. I like #6 the best: it gives a great feeling of stillness.

    My only suggestion would be that the lighthouse seems a little far to the right in #1. If there's room to expand the crop to the right, or maybe cut some from the left, would it balance better?

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Hi Rick,
    Thanks.
    I did the crop only on the bottom and top to give a wide angle look..I wanted to keep a balance on the shore(right) and sea on left as the light house was not on the shore tip.

    Hi Ajith,

    Nice series, my C&C thoughts;
    #2 has a spot, or plane, almost dead centre in sky that should be cloned out
    Maybe I'm just to stuck in my ways, but to me, a more obvious sequence in time would be better; e.g. #4, #6, #1, #3, #5 and #2.
    Horizon on #1 slopes differently to #4, I think #4 is more correct.

    I am happy with the compositions personally

    Cheers,

    Very nice Ajith: I particularly like 1, 3 and 6. I like the rich colors and dramatic feel.

    Thanks Dave. The spot in pic 2 is not a plane but a "Dust Bunny" in my sensor

    I gave you 'the benefit of the doubt' on that, as it wasn't in the other shots

    Did you just miss cloning it on #2, or was it cropped off on the others?
