Lovely minimalist artistic compositions, I really like 3, 7 & 8 - great set, very well taken, would look good as large canvas block-mounted prints.

Bill, I'm afraid that the rule is to have the horizons near to a 1/3rd position from the top or bottom .... These are way off.

There are times when you can stuff the rules.
These are great

IMHO, 2 and 8 the people are a touch too close to the bottom. But love the massive sense of space with these!

Think 4, 5, 6 are my favs.

Captures what you see on many of our east coast beach locations perfectly

You don't HAVE to take the East Anglian idea of "big skies" literally --but I'm glad you did. These are marvellous
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

Unusual and interesting set. My choice is number 4 - the distant turbines and the slightly angled wave-line enhance the sense of depth in the image for me.

Cheers.

I'm sure that Nigel was joking but there are still some camera club judges who come up with classics just like that. They would start by suggesting massive crops to the sky, say that the figures are too close to the bottom of the frame and then complain about the people being too small to see the catch lights in their eyes.
Thank heavens photographers like Bill have the wit and artistry to see beyond the norm. These eye catching images perfectly capture the spirit and atmosphere of the big skies and sweeping horizons of Eastern England.
