Nice compositions- but those reflections in the water are killers!

it was a brilliant early afternoon, about 1pm.... was going to use my c.p.... but with that darn lens hood on... had too much trouble getting my stubby little fingers in there to rotate it... so off it came... definitely a trade off in opting for the hood...

Very nice Dave, Hard for me to imagine how to catch them close hauled as you did,
without a little "glint and sparkle in the aye"

I love these photos, Dave, even the brilliant waves, because it reminds me of days like that on big water when I was trying to paddle into the sun. A beautiful little ship and I love the backlighting through the sails.
