    Welcome to TPF fatman. I like these shots, especially the last one with the breaking wave.

    The only thing I can suggest is when looking through the view finder try keeping the horizon straight. In the first two shots the horizon looks a little crooked.

    Cheers.

    I like the third shot the best. I think the first one is good, but it lacks good contrast. Too much grey.

    I like the 2nd one the best. You can easily fix that horizon in photoshop.
    go to
    -Filter
    -Distort
    -Lens Correction
    And then click on the straighten tool in the top left of that screen.
    Post your fixed one up too!

    the best advice i can give is that the shots are taken from the classic "standing up" position, try a different angle of view, like get up on a rock and look down, or lie on the ground

    cool shots though, good job man =P

    I think #1 is the best but do agree with lifeafter2am in that it is a little flat. I played a little with the contrast and levels, hope you don't mind. This is what I got.

    I love this shot compositionally, it's great (horizon a little skewed but not that noticable because of the wave).
