    Ooooo, that is a rough sea! Boy, those waves DO crash against the cliffs!

    I prefer the colour pic to the b&w.
    And there was not a trace of Africa to be seen... When I was on Gibraltar, it was a clear day with the bluest of skies, but I couldn't believe the coastline I saw so clearly would be AFRICA! But it was! So I saw it ... and didn't KNOW ;)!!!

    yeah on clear days its a beautiful sight, but thenm we have days like this!! lol

    the spray of the water was reaching me quite easily about 25m up at least! i was cleaning thelens every 2 seconds! but i think it was worth it.

    Could maybe enter the beginner comp here locally with the landscape one?? or needs a lot of work??

    Wow! Amazing to have locations like that near you!

    I like all of them, but the composition of the last one is my favorite. I wish that the lighthouse was more in focus as opposed to the cliff to the right, but it may have been hard with those weather conditions! Great job anyway :)

    My fave is also the last one...I like how my eye follows along the cliffs to the lighthouse, and I like the waves crashing against the shore. Very moody pic.

    I've not been there since 1984 and I don't recall it looking quite like that. If I was going to suggest anything, it would be to try and lift the contrast a good bit and perhaps try increasing the saturation.
