Glad i sorted that out, I would have hated being responsible for Gareth having to buy a new monitor|

really like the composition and think it's a great shot but I don't know if it's my screen but the bottom half looks over saturated and the water is blue where the surf should be white. Not sure if it's my screen or it needs the bottom half toning down a bit so make the water more white and less bright blue?

The first image has better attraction and gives a totally different impression:

1) As Haris said "like a 'two different worlds' setup"

2) The wave front in the original provides a true platform into the top half of the image

3) The "rock" in upper left side of V2 distracts

4) The wave crest in V1 at V2 rock level is much more defined and also runs parallel to the horizon

5) The clouds in V1 are better lit. Their location provides a better sense of distance as they fade darker, closer to land at the right, above the pier

V2, same scene, completely different impression and imo, does not nudge the imagination and has less to look at.

V1 wins outright due to uncanny timing of the scene with both water and sky.

Printed large and staying true to the edited version, it's just a blo*dy good image.

Haris, you got me at it now, the sky in v2 seems cramped in comparrioson v1. thanks for your time you gave to critique the images.
