    I'm crossing my fingers and hoping that these pictures are exposed correctly on most people's monitors. I intentionally underexposed these shots a little to get the mood I wanted so they may look way too dark for some viewers. Although if your monitor is set very bright then may look faded or overexposed....Anyway, comments are much appreciated.

    These pics look great on my monitor ; good balance of light and dark...
    I really like the contrast of the white ocean foam against the dark of the rocks here.
    Pictures two and four are the standouts for me.
    Great stuff :thumbsup: !!

    perfectly exposed on my monitor, must really saw the light really rocks in pics 2 & 4 but the others are quite good.

    So did you make a mad rush at the tide, snap a few shops and make run for it, well that my method anyways :D

    Exposure looks wonderful. As Luminosity said great contrast of light and dark. Nice use of fast shutter speed.

    For some reason #s 2 and 4 look the best on my crappy little work monitor, but it's easy to spot that they are all nice exposures. These are beautiful B&Ws; I just love 'em!! :)

    Beautiful...the way the water and froth is captured as if frozen. I agree with most, 2 & 4 are brilliant!

    The others are nice too tho ;)

    Excellent! Maybe you could sell one to a bottled water company, all that splashing water literally made me thirsty, a real sense of movement in the pictures.

    Thanks everyone for looking and commenting. I'm glad the exposure looks correct for some of you at least. ;)

    I used to do that but I couldn't get the shots I wanted, so this time I got into the water and stayed there. I just had to becareful with my camera but I'm glad I did. :D

    Lol. I'll keep that in mind drdan. I'm starting to get thirsty too. :wink:
