I do like this but I think you should trim most of the sky off, a little above the horizon. A full third of the picture is doing nothing! It seems well exposed and focussed but maybe could do with some increased contrast and maybe some selected brightening on the breakers? Regards, Mike

Hi Mike,
Thanks for your comment,
I'll try what you suggest.
I kept the building to give a reference, and then I had to keep the sky as well.

I know what you mean about using the building for reference, however it is not sharp and can actually draw the eye from the subject. Having said that, all comments are entirely subjective!
regards, Mike
