    I do! I do!

    Given it's the same boat, comparisons between #2 and #3 are inevitable (No they're not ... but I'm going to make them anyway!)

    I like, what I would call, the 'power' of #3. In my mind, it's because we're close up and 'in' the boat, or at least 'in the scene'. we're part of it. The boat looks and feels substantial a a solid thing that can take on the seas.

    They are very lovely. The colors are just amazing. The third one especially, where the pink/peach/orangish sunlight reflection of the boat meets the blue in the water and the same thing on the boat itself. They are absolutely splendid.

    Oh look - its snowing sideways outside my window.

    2 & 3 are great. No 1 seems a bit bland in comparison.

    No 2 and 3 have that lovely liquid welsh coastal light that you capture so well. No 1 not so much.

    Thanks Debbie. On shots such as these I tend to push the vibrancy slider in RAW edit (Photoshop) across to the right, which boost the more subtle colours. I then apply my 'Velvia' action which saturates the different colour channels. I then pull it back on the opacity, as it's sometimes too strong. I just adjust it until it looks good.

    The action is here Robs Photoshop Actions

    Cool. Nice Action . I am on the edge of doing some much needed maintenance to my PC so I can wipe the hard drive, reload the OS, and reinstall PS 4, its sooo cranky right now, its impossible.
