Taken two minutes later than yesterday's picture zooming in a bit

NIKON D70s 1/320 second F/10.0 46 mm (35mm equiv.)

Dulcie from Danville, CA, United States

This a perfect title for yesterday and today's images.
The very flat, "poured' effect in that wonderful silvery-gold color is terrific.
These shots are mesmerizing...I can hardly stop looking at them !

Just lovely! I can reach out and touch the water. It is so silken!

Great light and the silver sparkling of the sea. I like the sunrays and the clouds.Excellent shot.

This and yesterday's are stunners! My personal preference, though, is this one. And the titles are just perfect.

Good morning, Grouser,
Their representations are daily becoming more beautiful. The silver luster, the whole scene is more than brilliant. The sunlight through the clouds, They reflect perfect, and the reflections in the water. The slightly whitecaps of the waves in the foreground, are seen very well. It is a fantastic view. For that I give you 5 stars *****
Nice weekend and thank you for your comment. Dear greetings Christel

And suddenly you get close to the maximum and the metallic light hits you look! Powerful image upsetting! The sun's rays are more generous in this approach! The waves breaking on the beach come almost to the feet of the photographer! Excellent image grouser!

that is pretty much the same as yesterday, but I like more compo in yesterday shot than in this one .

@MARIANA: 'that is pretty much the same as yesterday' Do you think so? I'm a lot further along the beach to the right, as can be seen from the hillside and it is a whole two minutes later :)

Yesterday's was good, but this one is even better for my taste because the rays are so much more important here.

I agree, the light from the sun's rays makes this a slightly more engaging shot.

MARIANA from Waterloo, Canada

sorry, it is me . To me it is boring to watch the same place, the same setup , almost the same time ... I would select the best shot or two to post , the rest I would keep in my folder ;) I meant nothing wrong !

6 Mar 2010 8:38pm

@MARIANA: Me neither, just teasing :) In the past when I have had a couple of similar pictures and I am unsure which I prefer I have usually presented them together as a montage. For some reason not this time. I find it quite interesting that like my thoughts, the response is mixed too.

Don from spokane, United States

That lovely glow on the water makes this a very attractive image. Well done.
