Long exposure seascapes

Hi

I took these on Saturday evening, using an IR filter, the exposures are between 30 seconds and a minute. Perhaps they are not particularly original but I am quite pleased with how they've come out.

I just wanted your collective opinions on which two images you prefer. You see, I have a couple of A3 picture frames on the wall, that I try to keep updated with new prints. One is hung upright in portrait orientation and the other is sideways in landscape. So I try to get two images that are linked in some way, one in each orientation.

So if you have a suggestion let me know eg A1 or B3 thanks!

The portrait orientated candidates:

A


B


C



The landscapes:

1


2


3

Re: Long exposure seascapes

C is my favourite, although they are all very impressive

Re: Long exposure seascapes

As far as linking two shots for framing and hanging, I think a B2 combination would work very nicely.

Re: Long exposure seascapes

C is the most pleasing for me - nice balance between headland and island.

Re: Long exposure seascapes

B and C are both very strong pictures, most impressed. For me the weakest of the bunch is the last one, 3.

Good stuff

Re: Long exposure seascapes

My choices would be C and 2 but I would be pleased if I had taken any of them

Cheers,

Re: Long exposure seascapes

I like C2 - but what I like better is the idea of updating prints on the wall on a regular basis. What a great idea - think I'll have suggest it to my other half and see if she'll let me do it. Thanks for suggesting it.

Re: Long exposure seascapes

As a print for the wall, my vote goes for C. Much as I like the WW2 defences, I don't think they would suit a room's decor (but I could be wrong!).

Re: Long exposure seascapes

My reason for chosing B2 is that they have strong similarities both in subject matter and sky. As such they compliment each other very well as a pair. As a stand alone I might well have gone for C, but B would still run it very close indeed.

A good set of images of Brean Down. Must take another trip there soon.
