There all good, but #7 just pips it for me, an unusual low viewpoint, well shot

Masterful, ranging from rocky coastlines to exquisite sand patterns and beautiful skies. My faves are No. 7 with the wonderful patterns and two distant figures giving it context and the final shot of the tents with their internal lighting and the night sky.

7 is great but number 1 is great on many levels too

Yes all are impressive!
For me 4 & 5 beat 7, but 10 must be the winner are those planes or shooting stars?
They all seem to be coming from a fixed point and there's not the clear pulsing often seen with aircraft lights, but the intensities look fairly even.

I'm sad to say they all put my shots of Cornwall over the summer to shame.

Once again, some real gems in this set, Bill. 2 is grand by its composition, and its contrast between rock and sea/sky. But especially, it is a powerful homage to nature, in which I see a stone God-bird on the lookout, protecting its Sea-creation, or perhaps summoning grace and beauty from it... maybe in the form of the Wave-dolphin appearing in 3, as it takes the measure of the Granite-earth thundering above! And 6 & 9 are fabulously abstract renderings of Time taking part in the shaping of things to come (and go, of course). Very inspiring!

Thanks Chris, Don, David, Alistair, Bjorn, Mike, Joe, Serge, Rick, Dan for thoughts, obs, and positivity re these...

Thanks for thoughts re 7... interesting... v nearly didn’t include it in this selection, so gd to hear thoughts on it...

Mike, think the trails in 10 are prob planes, but not absolutely sure...

Dan and Serge... thanks for thoughts re 2... quite contemplative that one... one of those ones that just comes from sitting and looking at things for a while...

Thanks again all...

Best
