Have been trying to decide between the following (shot minutes apart). Click on the image for original size (the PUF ones are softer due to re-sizing).













I think my preferences are in order - ie. 1, first. But I'm not sure.

Do people have a problem with the clipped sun in these, or can you live with it given the nature of the image?

Number two for me as well - i love the boundary between the beach and the sea with the thin foamy line on the edge of the water. That said, I would be chuffed with any of them

Number two as well, the subtle differences are what makes it stand out for me.

One day I would like to have shots like these

Two for me as well, the edge of the wave draws your eye into the shot.

Stunning quality in all of these images Andrew but my favourites are No.1 + 2 for the exquisite definition in the sky. I don't see how you avoid clipping the sun without making the picturea so under exposed that you would lose all other detail.

I have something similar myself.... if you run at, say 1/160 and f/16, it's quite possible.

Personally, 3.

Thanks for the feedback all. With the images posted here I think I'm concurring with the majority in preferring 2. Had originally been 3 then 1!

Brett, I fear David's right - I don't think I could have reduced the exposure more without losing too much off the left of the histogram. And nd grad's are an impossibility with the fisheye, or for that matter when you're shooting handheld in the surf!

My query re. the clipping was really relating to how people view images after capture. I think my attitude is that I can live with clipping in these situations as long as the clipped area retains a more or less round (sun-like) shape, which is, just, the case here.

*I* think the exposure is spot on and yes, it is clipped, but as you say it's rounded and therefore the loss of real information is minimal.

Number one, I think. I like the ricer colours.

No 1 on account of the warmer, deeper colours, followed by 2 and 3 for me.

Number 2 but I do have a problem with the clipped sun but there is nothing you can do about it. Excellent high quality shots presumably down to care and attention to detail!
