All taken with the K3ii and DA* 16-50mm.

Worked fast as just managed to capture the last of the light before some HUGEEEEE rain clouds came in and it got wet!

Thanks all! Appreciate the comments

Stosser, our house is on the market for sale and my wife said to me about moving more inland away from the coast as I literally live on the coast but after 5 seconds of saying it we looked at one another and said nah!!

Thanks, just ND grads of various strengths and a circular polariser which were used in conjunction with one another

Move inland, then you wont be making the rest of us jealous with these shots

Savage, as ever. 4, 5, 6, and 7 are superb, love the quality of the light in 4, but the tones of 6 and 7.
Super set.
I know what i like, If not always why.

Thanks both! Yes, I think these may end up being printed out!

Sorry Derek, the call of the sea is in my veins Did I saw I have a beard, eye patch, pipe and a yellow waterproof with matching hat?!

All fantastic as usual, but 4 and 7 really grab me. Yes get some printed. From my limited experience so far in getting prints done, I find increasing the exposure by half a stop and over sharpening by doubling the USM settings works great. I recommend DS Colour labs.

Cheers Peter, I haven't used them before but I'll look them up! I have my monitor calibrated to a local pro lab but reckon that they can't be far off one another so I'll send two test prints over, one normal, one brighter!

Hello Gareth
Excellent work, don`t move too far away from the coast

Can you please confirm what filter system you use?

Thanks
