went down to Aldeburgh this morning as the weather was nice. decided to play with water movement in these.

1,


i liked this one because the pebbles are still visible through the water and the water still shows movement.

2,


i like the streaking in the water in this one.

which one do you prefer?

thanks for looking

Easily #2. The water draining back through the pebbles and the wave action a little further out both add a lot of interest to this lovely shot.

I think they both have their merits and indded they are both shots I would be proud to have taken.
No 1 because as you said you can still see the pebbles and No 2 because
of the movement portrayed in the water.
Both fine shots.

No2 I think it has more interest in the foreground and the breaking wave hold you into the image and guides you to the Groins.

Groins? I suspect you wanted a different word. One not associated with pain and privacy. Try groynes.

After some deliberation, I think I prefer the first. For the tranquility.

Chalk up another for #1, but it's a very close call

By the way did you get your feet wet?
What exposure did you use?

Thanks again for the comments guys!

Yes I did get wet feet at one point but only because I was dumb and didn't notice the water coming further up the beach. Lol

Will post up exposure info later!

Cheers
