    ... your favourites!

    I have been approached by an Art Gallery to sell some of my work. Part of the problem, for me (a *good* problem), is to whittle down a shortlist of photographs to a final selection.
    One group of photos are four black&white sea/beachscapes. Can you help me by giving me your thoughts and choices as favourite?

    I'd really appreciate the help!

    I prefer the first image... the textures are very attractive to me.

    It looks to me like a long exposure of a slipway with a boat at the end, as the tide comes in. By the look of it the boat didn't stay long either.

    Am I close? ;)

    I love the sky in the first one althought the horizon is squint. The third one is probably the best shot.

    I can't decide between the last and first, they are both very good. The first shot has great texture and a nice S-curve but I also love the way the stones lead the eye to the mast in the last shot, not to metion the great look the long exposure gives it. great work.

    I dislike both two and three, two seems too busy with no real focal point and three seems too unbalanced, too much sky.

    Good luck with the gallery :)
