Did a few days away last week on the Essex coast with the K-1, FA 20-35mm and 150-450mm.

Great shots Mike.

No.2 is stunning and rate No.4 as well.

The others are all good...and yep, that bunny is cute.

I agree with the comments above that number 2 is outstanding.

Great set, love the bleakness of #3 and agree with everyone else on #2.

May I put in a good word for no 1, please? I like the fact that it's trying to say something about the location rather than just being a nice picture. Perhaps a tighter crop would help - cropping to the right of the left hand houseboat would remove the big bare patch of grass at the lower left and the mooring line now leads in from the lower left corner. Perhaps a bit off the top, too, to put the bright patch in the corner.

If I were wanting a picture for the wall, though, it would be 2, 3 or 4 (and the baby rabbit for my rabbit-obsessed grand-daughter).

Very much my neck of the woods, which has given me the challenge of trying to identify the locations.

No 1 is easy, from Coast road West Mersea around 100m east of the Victory.
No 2 feels like a view from Batesmans Tower at Brightlingsea. I've shot similar sunsets there recently, but without the trimaran.
No 3 must be be the Martello tower at Jaywick (it's the only one I remember with the banking round it)
I can't place No 4 - I suspect its a bit further down the coast. there are features that make me think Brightlingsea, but the houses are wrong.
No 5 is just 10 minutes away from me now the leading lights at Dovercourt beach
Sorry no 6 is beyond me, a common sight in my parents garden, but I doubt that's where you took it!

How did I do?

The first image holds the most interest for me - plenty of well composed information. And a round of appreciation is in order for 5 also.

About a kilometre out for no 2 then, not too bad considering the lack of landmarks, but I really should have got no 4.
Although Cudmore Grove is only about a mile from point clear, it's quit a long drive round - over 20 miles. Did you take the passenger ferry ? I've never been on it myself

Shame I wasn't around to offer you hospitality, I was in Lincolnshire testing kart fuel that weekend.

The sunset through the mast is spot-on, the rest are just superb
